dkottum, thank you for the information about Villa recliners. I had checked them out a few years ago for their sofas/beds, but I didn't think about them for their recliners. I haven't seen their work in person, but on the internet it looks nice.
I'll have to do some surfing to see where the best deal is.

Thanks again.

Deb

A shiny new set of metal valve stems and spin balancing for each wheel on our trailer to handle the flow-thru TPMS sensors with aplomb...we even did the spare. Works beautifully; life is good.

Thanks.

We chose the chairs because they are very comfortable. They are not necessiarily light weight. They are very well built. The size of the Lambright chairs is perfect for RV's.


I drilled four 5/16" holes in the steel base of the chairs, and used 1/4" x 2" lag bolts directly into th floor. Works fine.

Installed a new tonneau cover and Yakima racks on my TV. Had to search a bit to find what I was looking for--aluminum slatted roller tonneau cover, lockable, and compatible with some type of sport rack. The folks at TonneauCovers World were a great help. Truck Covers USA sells the roll cover with Yakima tracks pre-installed on the bed rails. Installation was straight forward and took me about 2 hours. Here's how it came out.

That's beautiful. I would love to have something like that for the double sink in our safari.

Proof of the '15 Yukon

Well, you guys wanted proof so here it is. We took the 25fb out of storage today and hooked it up to the new tow vehicle. A short trip to have the trailer prepped for the season. Very nice ride! I'll know more after we take a long trip in a few weeks.

Ordered a new toilet and flange seal. Both of the valves are leaking in ours (the inlet valve and the drain valve), and it's 19 years old, so even though it's probably cheaper to fix the one we have we decided to update/upgrade.

I am in the middle of doing the same on my 93 34'. I decided to just clean up the old valves and install new seals, which already is a big job. Replacing the valves would have required replacing most of the pipes, since the old valves are cemented in place.
