Thank you, Mike
the isle light switch on the dash turns mine on

Ordered this little hand held label maker. My wife uses one at work and showed me the labels it makes. Pretty cool. Adhesive backed vinyl label tape with easy to read letters. Will start labeling wires as I go especially behind the dash. Pretty cheap too.

I have one too...but amazingly each time I go to use it, it is out of tape; a bit like how the printer is always out of paper and ink, when it certainly wasn't when I last used it!

Just finishing up replacing all my "trunk" lights with these little LED light bars. Needed two in the long compartment on the street side. They seem like nice little lights. I also added two underneath on either side of the stairs. They give off just enough light to see the stairs without the disco lights you see sometimes. My intent is to have just a little light at night without using the scare light or the one over the door. (Step light?)

Not a bad looking light. I'd buy a couple now but instead I've added it to my wish list. I don't want to order any lights for compartments until I get closer to having the compartments reworked.

Thanks for sharing

Brad

It will be nice having those all working correctly. Especially during this time of year when its dark so early. Im sure we will be occasionally setting up after dark when on the road.

We got out for the weekend to Raccoon Lake State Recreation Area in south central Indiana. Beautiful time of year to camp, very few folks in the campground.

This part of Indiana is just gorgeous and has many state parks to choose from. Highly recommend for anyone passing through this part of the country. (We DO have more than corn and soy beans). Raccoon Lake is a nesting area for eagles and youre pretty much guaranteed to see a few while there.

Low temps were in the 30's over night. 2 small electric heaters were plenty to keep the rig toasty. Since I had run an extra 120v shore power cord for the rear ac, we can also use that circuit to power the second electric heater leaving plenty of shore power for the rest of the coaches electrical needs.
Campsites were beautiful tucked up into the woods

The 310 ran great, no hiccups, all systems go. Load food and clothes, do the preflight and take off. Getting ready for our trip west to Colorado in about a month.

It's always nice to be in a campground where no one else is around!

Glad to hear you had a nice weekend

I agree Brad, whole different experience. They were having a two day deer hunt (culling) so most of the folks that were there were hunters. If not for them, we may have had the place to ourselves. Perfect weather for a fire and steaks on the grill. Central and southern Indiana is really beautiful.

about halfway down the page you'll find a list for "Chevy/GM/Workhorse Chassis 68-07, IFS P30/P32"

Peter, Im looking here. They are Raybestos Professional Grade but Im trying to find the part number in my records. They were rated as equal quality to the Moog brand. I looked in my maintenance log and found that I only wrote down the brand so Im hoping the part number is on the receipt.
