The axles have been here for a couple of weeks. Today my local mechanic (who services all of our vehicles and several fleets of school buses) agreed to do the axle swap for us.

Stripping!

My RemovALL 220 arrived from Vintage Trailer Supply today!

Can't wait to get rid of 44 years of peeling clearcoat.

For me it's been very effective. No offense intended, but I have no desire to, nor any intention of, purchasing a Cyclo at 3x the cost, when the PC does a great job for me.

As always, your mileage may vary.

None taken and I wish ya nothing but the best. I tried 'em both and the cyclo was what I stuck with. As you said "YMMV". Cheers!

Started the campaign for a new RV gas range for christmas. Figure about September it'll become his "idea" and it'll show up before the end of the year. The promise of fresh baked goodies while camping probably helps my cause.

Supplies, for the first trip of the spring this weekend!

It's only been two months since we've used the Airstream (winter camping, woohoo), but it feels a LOT longer than that. I think we're addicted.

The FedEx truck pulled in this morning to deliver a new 45 amp converter from Best Converters. 😊

...and decided to use it replace the lower panel on my door that was dented and scratched and even more ugly than that above mentioned piece of aluminum.
Still working on the lower pinstriping color, but getting there ...
Here is the before and after
