Just a piece of Corian. pm if you really want to know how much! They were kind enough to give me a small piece to practice on.

More Mother's Syn Wax and a whole bunch of elbow grease!

I mentioned earlier that this is the first chance I've had to get a good coat of wax on it since we bought it last August. They say you find all the imperfections the first time you wax a vehicle. I very pleased with the few imperfections and condition of the finish. It's polishing up real nice for a plastic coated AS.

12V Handbook & Chevrolet Motor Home Chassis Service Guide

Maybe the book is for Boats, but I've read through this book already, and it's relevant to just about everything we deal with. Can't wait to see what I'm missing with the Chevrolet Motor Home Chassis Guide.

Thanks, Derek

Got an air line check valve from Inland for our rear airbag suspension. Ever since we bought our 310, the air bags have gone flat overnight. I have had to calculate the anticipated angle change into my campsite selection, and the compressor has to run for a long time on startup in the morning.

Andy at Inland was very helpful in answering a couple of emails when I could not find an existing valve to replace.

Went in to an old school neighborhood hardware store near our daughter's house looking for adapters to plumb the valve into my air lines. A guy who was well into his eighties or beyond sized the situation up and immediately pulled the three pieces that I needed out of a wall full of hundreds of little cubbyholes. What a treat.

Installed the valve, aired it up, and it is holding air now. The compressor didn't come on at all when I turned the key this morning.

Thank you, Andy and hardware store guy.

I'm upgrading my electronics and have the old components available if anyone is looking for some origional replacements. I've got a 12 volt VHS and TV from the front console of my 95 360. Both work and have remotes. Free if you pick them up or pay the shipping.

Do you guys check the power steering hoses? It's not very exciting when one of those springs a leak.

Tunes!!!

Gotter dun!

If this streams rockin don't bother knockin. We wont hear ya!

Just fired up the new Pioneer 8400 system. Worked out great and sounds increadible. Took longer than planned but there is a certain satisfaction in doing the job right.

I rebuilt the center console to remove the VCR and moved the drawere up to make room for the sub. The 5 ch amp is on the shelf that the TV used to set on. Upgrades will be sattelite radio and GPS. I does include a backup camera but I wont hook that up until we get back from the trip.

It interfaces to the ipad and iphone and runs (some) iphone apps.

I have plenty of room under the unit to add options and connectors. The new LED TV will hang from the overhead cabinets and hang on the bedroom wall for transit.

Led tv

Got another last minute project done today. Had to pull the bulkhead to securely fasten the quick attach bracket. The bracket allows it to slide back and forth about 6 inches. I pulled that old TV cabinet and moved the CO2 detector to the bulkhead. I added 12 volt and 120 volt outlets so I can either run directly of through an inverter as it is in the picture. Had to run romex behind the shower and up tie in under the dinette. All worked out pretty well outher than taking more time that planned. Pretty good picture off the antenna.

Hope to hit the road tomorrow AM.

Nice work, as a retired recording engineer, I appreciate quality! I wonder if I'll still be alive when everything goes wireless!

Dakota; thanks for the bedroom tv photos. I pulled my crt tv out of the cabinet, was thinking of putting a flat panel on the front of the cabinet, but that looks like a probable head banger. Your on-the-wall mount will work fine. There was a set of audio "in" cables into the tv but I have no idea where they start: no similar connections by the front tv. Also have to upgrade the speaker, but will do that after the tv is purchased and mounted.

The photo is the front tv upgrade I did, have a dvd player and a wireless U-Verse receiver for home use in the cabinet above.
