I dropped the end of waste hose while ringing it out at the dump station yesterday. One of the two locking tabs busted off.

I learned that its an obsolete size. Could have ordered one but decided to upgrade it so the new stuff fits. I replaced the gate valve manifold and picked up a new hose kit. Also got rid of that ugly pipe that hung down 6 inches. Don't need a 45 coupler either.

Don't know why the iPad insists on rotating my photos from how they ere displayed in my album

MORE is better

After running out of Vulkem while installing A/C unit last weekend, I decided on Monday that I'd never get caught in that situation again.....

Progress at last!


Complete new interior soft furnishings now in place. Management very happy. Comprises four Fainsa America seats, settee and cockpit flex steels recovered in original Douglas Scott Routemaster Moquette with matching Burgundy leather panels throughout. This was the original fabric and leather combination used on London Routemaster buses.

http://www.ltmuseumshop.co.uk/for-ho...-moquette.html

All done by one of England's premier vintage bus trimmers. Looks fabulous - first trip out this week. Pictures to follow.

Oh, and, at last, I've managed to get hold of my missing centre arm for the Zipdee.

Fuel!

Must be a glut in the Diesel market! Prices have been lower or the same as regular and as much as 70 cents lower than premium.

We've been leisurely traveling the back roads at 55 with nice tail winds. Got 13 mpg on the last tank. Today we hit interstate 94 cruising at 75 to get where we gotta be. I'm guessing we'll see about 11 on this tank if we are lucky!

Derek,

I used that many tubes of Vulkem just repairing the inner wheel wells of my Argosy! As a matter of fact the six tubes that I had previously ordered are about gone so I guess it's time to reorder more.

Replacement Roller Bearings for the HWH kickdown jacks!

I figured I might as well get 4... they were $8 each.

Had a big day yesterday! Picked up and installed a new Dometic fridge, Dometic Convection Microwave, and Thetford Bravura toilet! Nothing went perfectly smooth but after 13 hours it's all in and working. Anybody know what the "Ign Lock" wire terminal on my old Dometic 1303 fridge is? It has a smaller gauge wire to it without power on it. My new fridge didn't have a place for it.

just because my 12v horns on the roof never seemed to work at the same time, I found these on eBay. TRAIN! Maybe size doesn't matter, but hoping that SOUND does!
As well, last couple of times I've met Raveson at the Florida State Rally, he has these inside of his Classic Moho, one showing voltage for the batteries, and one for the voltage to hookups at the site. Not much $, so figured why the heck not!
As well, seems whenever I've been hooked up, my fridge seems to have a mind of it's own, so purchased the LCD displays for Fridge and Freezer. Guess I'll need to start learning metric, since these only display in Celcius. No biggie, zero Celcius is 32 degrees, right??? Help me out here KEY!

Derek, If you want to do a quick calculation in your head for converting Celsius to Fahrenheit, the best rule of thumb I learned is this formula: Double the Celsius amount, then add 30.
Example: 25 degree Celsius (25 X 2 = 50 + 30 = 80).

In reality 25 degrees Celsius is converted to 77F. That's close enough for me when it comes to weather. Not sure how close you want to be for the fridge.

New Air system

Time to replace the old tired compressor as well as the rusting tank. Will also have air up to the front with a gage in the dash to know how its doing while going down the road. In the future a air horn .

A new air tank to replace the rusting one that keeps rust in the drain valve and check valve leaking!

We should get Chuckles to set out his power set up; it really is a work of art. I'll see if I can get him to post some pictures and a brief description.
