Thank you Bob....I did take the screen filter off and check it as well. It was clean and I agree that it should have helped release any pressure that may have been in the pump etc...

I appreciate all of your help! It's snowing in the mountains this morning and winter is on the way!

Great point Peter...and well over the current/OEM T02 15's @ 2830 gross.

I suspect it may come down to supply when I jump in I like the 3's especially the black, but I'm leaning towards the OEM look.

For those on the east coast, be safe.

The black accent looks cool up close, but it "weakens" the look from a distance in my opinion -- makes the silver casting look thinner on the edges of the "spokes," and thus flimsy-looking, again in my opinion.

YMMV



PS -- waldosgone went through this before his Alaska trip, see Post 829 here, and got the black accent because the silver had a long lead time.

Very nice, any problems getting the new size wheel tire combination into the wheel well?

Rear window modification.
Ok I finally made the time to meet with C&G Airstream in Bellflower Ca today and he is going to order the parts required to install the curb side arm on the rear window on our 2012 to prop it up so I won't have to use my bike handle foam pads. I'll report back when it is finished. He had given me an estimate of 125 to do the job, everything included. I'll also have the wheel bearings packed at the same time while there.

Good news, thanks! Great price IMO, esp. if that includes a new screen panel inside, with the slot for the operator handle to stick through.

We also had our FC20 into the shop recently for a bearing repack/seals plus brake inspection, a year after purchase. A-OK all around, plus the auto detailer next door washed and waxed the whole thing at the same time. Nice!

The shop confirmed that the rear window mod is do-able, and is going to give us a price to do it, plus to install two new operable windows as discussed here recently, in the head, and in the galley over the counter next to the fridge. [to replace the 4 fixed glass units in the 2 locations.] Price TBD.

The shop was north of White Plains, so I opted to take the ferry from Port Jefferson Long Island to Bridgeport CT, and head north from there. Driving around NYC via the bridges and crowded roads there is a drag IMO, making the ferry cost-effective, for this aging driver at least. $136 each way.

Hoping to get in one more trip to Hither Hills SP before winterizing, and maybe a short trip south after Election Day. TBD

Happy Trails to all, and hope the PT is going well Bob.

Glad to hear that the window mods (rear) are cost effective. It's nice to be able to open the rear window and get the breeze going through. I will be curious to see the look of the window replacements on the sides as well.

I installed the trickle charger last weekend and it's keeping the batteries topped off just fine. It has a setting for above and below 50 degrees and it fits inside the battery compartment just fine.

Thanks Peter, I got clearance yesterday @ PT to put the crutches in storage so it's a cane for all mobility. I'm already moving short distances in the house sans cane so progress is very good .

The ferry price seems reasonable. Anacortes to Orcas was about $220 (RT). Actually any price would probably be worth not having to drive drive the the metro city area.

I'm optimistic I'll be driving by early November and we're thinking of a weekender to 7 Feathers S of Roseburg. Its a casino, and we're not gamblers but has great food and it has a nice RV park with an indoor heated indoor pool & Jacuzzi...some much needed R & R before I'll have to winterize likely mid to late November. Plans for a Jan trip to Pismo are also on the table...can't wait.

Be well everybody!

Bob

Subfan1 ditto peter's comment...great price.
