Also finished packing the basement for our new fulltime adventure ~ 4 weeks to go !!

Oh how I wish I had that amount of space.

Theresa, here's a few more pics. I've got part of a storage rack mounted on the back wall and the tray is a 20"x90" MorRyde. Let me know if you need more pictures.

A welder friend made the grill carrier and the cord reel is MorRyde

Do you have to put tractor weights on the front bumper to keep the wheels of your Ford on the ground. LOL!
Looks like our SOB 9 years ago when first went fulltime, but since have gotten rid a bunch of stuff we thought we couldn't live without but never used.

Nah, I'm still under gross - not by much, nut under. Truck does fine. It knows the coach is back there but really doesn't care that much.

I figure after a year or so, I'll be moving stuff too.

Going to pull my wheels this weekend, inspect the disc brakes, repack the bearings and put new seals on the hubs.
Not expecting to find any problems since MoRyde just installed the Disc Brakes and IS Suspension about a year ago.
I am always overly proactive and want to just be absolutely sure there are no unknown issues with my running gear.
I hate surprises on the road !!!

LOL, no big deal, just typical RV stuff like the Roof blowing off, Pin Box falling apart, brakes smoking and such :banghead:

Memorable misadventures!

Replaced 12 volt 50 amp breaker
 
Problem: 2013 RW36RL with slides and leveling jacks hesitating many times when retracting. Found a thread explaining what the problem was and how to fix it. I went and bought a $6 part from OReilly Auto Parts and fixed the problem.

Of course that is after replacing the batteries while on the road, which was the big expense. They needed to be replaced anyway since they were 4 years old and running slow.

The web is such a great place to find answers to problems. I would have spent hundreds of dollars to have this fixed with them probably replacing the Trombetta reversing solenoid and maybe the motor.

Exactly what problem did you have and what part was used to make the fix. Inquiring minds want to know.

** NEVERMIND....just saw your other post.

Bulb Seals & Disk Brakes
 
Well, This past Saturday - I replaced the top bulb seal on the kitchen slide. I now have done the tops of both the dining and kitchen slides. Others look ok for now.

Also going to call tomorrow and schedule my Disk Brake install.. I want to feel safer on the road with all the crazy's out there.... Thanks Ron!!

Just a small update on the coffee bar that I have been working on. Got side tracked with a trip to Myrtle Beach and now back at it. Should be done in a few weeks.

Steve, Boy that looks good...
I'm on my way back to CT from there now. We're here in Kiptopeke State Campground (VA) just after Chesapeake Bay Bridge & Tunnel. Where did you guys stay there?

Not as fun of a trip as I am used to. Went without the wife and RW. Stayed at the Sea Crest Hotel on the ocean in the center of Myrtle Beach. We were shopping for a deeded RV lot or house and we ended up with the deeded lot this time a little North located at Myrtle Beach RV Resort. Backs up to a lake and has a small ocean view in the front.

I have been keeping track and with what I removed and then added the island and coffee bar area. I think I will be adding about 500-550 lbs. The quartz is heavy. We never put more then 20 gallons of water in our tank so I took that in consideration but I will get weight at the Rally this year to see where I am at.
