I thought you'd all like an update on Elvis.
He's being repaired by some guys who have restored a couple of really nice 345's here in the Uk. They have alot of experience with American RV's.
On inspection here's what was bad:
Split front air bags, roll bar bushes, messy/hanging cabling underneath,steering damper and front shocks, new master cylinder (I had them change all brake hoses as well). The calipers were fine. The rear compressor for the air bags was not working (now fixed with new valve on the compressor?),lights and indicators need to be fixed and converted for UK and my upgrades, no horn. This is the list to get him driveable and tested for road use.
They are getting stuck into the living stuff now which will include repairing the water heater and furnace. The generator works now after a new pump and filter.
So far it's not cost as much as we thought. How often does that happen!

I am planning a few additions and of course need to sourec some parts from the US.

I am looking for a good used patio awning if they exist.

My MH is a 310. How long is the awning rail (the full length one on the passenger side) on a 310. Can someone measure or does someone know how long the awning should be?

Also can someone tell me the make or model of the twin electric roof horns? Mine are not working and were filled with dead bugs and stuff. They still dont work they say. How long are they and are they the same length?
I've attached a few pics of recent surgery
