New tires! The old ones were 5 years old in June. Upon inspection getting ready to take a short trip I discovered one separated belt.
Off to the tire store. Inspection there found one more failing.
So 2 by warranty and 2 purchased.

Washing equipment

I'm a big fan of Griot's Garage Products. So here's what I use to wash my 2015 Classic, my truck and wife's car.

Griot's Wash & Wax - does a great job
Griot's Foaming Sprayer - pour the Wash & Wax in and it lays down a foam soap that speeds washing Foaming Sprayer - Cleaning Tools - Car Washing - Car Care - Griot's Garage

I use Griot's Micro Fibre washing mit and also the mit on the telescoping pole.

The best thing that I have bought is a de-ionized water unit from CRSpotless. Talked to a friend that is into concours car competitions (scored a 99 on a Ferrari at Pebble Beach a few years ago). Swears by these units and now I do to. I use it to mix in my wash bucket and foamer. Then rinse and simply let the AS or truck/car dry. It will be spotless and I don't need to use anything for drying. Simply amazing. For time saved it's a bargain. Do a youtube search and you can see some testimonials.

Total time to wash the Classic today was 40 mins. I did not do the roof or tires. I do those once a month and usually do a regular wash after a trip. The time included getting setup, pull stuff out of the garage and put it back. Quick and easy and more time to camp

Thumbs up Griot's A+

We too.....

....use nothing but Griot's on all the "stuff"

Haven't found anything better, the microfiber offerings are first rate.

I see. Thanks for clearing that up! My confusion arose from Switz bringing mentioning that adaptor... and he has a 2015 Classic, which I would assume does have the AS gas-take-off feature. But perhaps he was referring to another coach that doesn't have that feature. Now I understand that this feature would be of use by those who don't have the "take-off" on their coach.

Post #3044 was the device I was trying to describe. CanAm also had a 25' hose that would attach to the valve in question and then to the Weber grill in the same manner that a stand alone 20# propane tank would connect.

This system allows for a non-truck tow vehicle to carry a gas grill inside and use the trailer propane. One just has the aroma or previously cooked steaks to contend with while driving down the road instead of a propane leak to blow the doors off the tow vehicle....

Make sure the Weber works off the A frame connection. The canister bottle have a higher gas pressure then the connection has.

Thanks for mentioning that. I didn't realize that the A frame outlet may not provide as much gas pressure for the Weber BBQ as desired.

Has anyone run their Weber from the A-frame outlet? Pressure good enough?

Although we don't watch much TV, we do like the morning news and weather at the start of the day, so we traded the "ufo" antenna for a king jack widget, should be just enough!
