Left rear water cabinet almost done.....front end up in the air....starting to strip down the air bags, shocks, etc. This weekend's plans to Lake Lucern got cancelled last minute (I really hate that) so I have 3 solid days to work on the 370 LE.Click image for larger version

Looks nice, what did you use to paint the water cabinet, mine has considerable surface rust that I would like to slow down.

I can tell you this...all the suspension parts on the 370LE are larger than the 325LE, and heavier. New microwave came yesterday as well as all the new light ballasts and lense covers. I got the front, rear, and tag axle shocks off today as well as the rear air bags. Since I am home for the holiday weekend I will get plenty of time in on the Airstream as well as finishing up some staining projects that I started in June LOL.Click image for larger version

Removed the left front air bag today...not an easy job to say the least. Finished up the install of the new 50 amp power reel and the 40 foot power water reel. No visible markings on the front air bag so I am going to have to take it to a buddy to see if he can match it up.Click image for larger version

Today....Labor Day, Oh Yeah, lots of labor. Got most of the second coat of stain on the deck, had a nice chat with Charly on the phone...he sent me some pictures to start indentifying the AC compressor on the 370LE. I finished the install of the new microwave/convection oven and replaced all if the bad ballasts and lenses for the light fixtures. Going to try to finish up the front and rear air bags, shocks and brakes next.Click image for larger version

Looks pretty! How do you like the layout with the dinette instead of the L-shaped lounge with table?

The L shaped dinette in my opinion was a loser, 3 people at best, 4 would be a tight fit. I said if they made a 370LE with a dinette booth I would buy one and "BANG" there it was for sale.....I hate when that happens......

Put a solid 9 hours in on the 370LE today. One of my buddies (customer) came out and did the custom install on the Alpine 8" radio/navigation unit, the same one that we installed in the 325LE and the 396XL. He's been doing these installs for 25 years and he's been a great customer for the same amount of time. I finished mapping out the electrical install for the 50 amp conversion. I received the new 45" sewer hose holder which will be installed in the same location, the 370LE has more than enough room to accept that length. Installed the new screen door latch assembly and removed the medicine cabinet. Charly, you'll be happy to know that the black tank flush out is relatively easy to service through that cabinet opening. I had to remove the outer black tank flush door (same as the fresh water fill door) to remove the broken hose. Charly, I need another measurement (height measurement) of the closet door opposite the refrigerator, see in the picture. Someone modified the door by removing the lower 2-3" for reason I don't know, installed a 110 volt outlet in the closet and a wood platform about 6" above the carpeted floor. Next Saturday brings huge work to the 370LE, we will be stripping down the tag axle, replacing front and rear axle disc brake pads, front and rear air bags, all shocks, transmission flush, new filter and gasket, oil and filter change, trying to diagnose hard brake pedal and a few other things. I felt a little guilty today because I never sent the antenna that John wants, I had two extra...one is still his and I used the other for the 370LE today.
