Vernon,
Didn't you make your own solar panels from kit form once?

Yeah, I made a 60W and a 120W. The 120 is now stationary near the trailer shed so I can plug in when I park. It does have an issue where the leads exit the panel, some of the thermoset material is starting to peel back. Some day it's gonna fail.

Dolly got new shoes. Take off rims from a fellow forums member. I think she looks quite nice, we may just have to take her out on the town.

I installed metal valve stems for my TPMS.

You should bring her to Alumalina in a few weeks. Best rally around. Check it out here on the forums. Would live to meet you and of course Dolly. She looks great.

Although I don't think we will make it all the way over to Alumalina, we do have a few more weekend outings planned. I've had a couple of folks comment on the rim change, everyone thinks they look great but I secretly miss the vintage look of painted rims with moons.

I added up how many miles we have traveled in Dolly, 29,457 miles so far. Nothing has imploded so I guess I managed to assemble the old gal halfway decent. The majority of those miles, almost all of them, have been on one set of tires that are still in great shape and not out of date. We have towed our 3 trailers 73,264 miles around the USA and wouldn't trade a single mile for another activity!

Thanks for the pictures as you have been disassembling. I have been searching for the vent on the wastewater piping by the kitchen sink.

Dolly's "new" wheels look great!! People will now really have a difficult time figuring out what year model she is!!

TPMS....that's difinitely on my "things to get" list for my '55 FC single axle.

Is this a CA made model? If so can you tell me your floor width? And if so that can you tell me how you took the messurement? Eg interior wall to interior wall or full size of subfloor.

Nope, the only table in this camper is the post mounted one.

I was out camping last week and over a 5 day period, I had to relight the old original Bowen water heater 4 days. It's easy to tell when it's lit, the flaky high temp valve dribbles water out of the floor drain...
So it's finally time to upgrade the 54 year old water heater.

Of course as soon as drain it (and create a swamp to work in) it starts raining. The new 6 gallon is much smaller, I'm going to need a 'hole shrinker'.Click image for larger version
