You can get one of these little laser pens, set it as the grid pattern. Then when you shine it on a "flat" surface you should be able to see the dent very easily. http://www.amazon.com/Pointer-Visibl.../dp/B07YHJLKRK

I thought we might be stuck in a Wal-Mart parking lot for more than a night. All is good for now.

Also, I washed 1500 miles of road grime and bugs off today, but still have to go back over it with wax and detailer spray to get rid of the crummy water marks. And that was rinsed with the good water.

I read this last night and decided to reply after a gal of coffee this morning.
You have an HWH air leveling system on your coach?

I am familiar with his coach and yes it does. My LX also has air level. It is a very nice feature, especially while traveling. I never put my jacks down while on the road. In fact I had my coach a few years before I figured out I had it. Also, it has a raise button to raise all the air bags which comes in handy when negotiating a steep driveway or incline.

Hi Randy,

As John mentioned, Yes it does. His and my coaches are sisters under the skin. Lucky for me, I get to pick his brain and borrow his experience, as well as my PO for knowledge and lessons. That has saved me many times so far and I have only owned it for a year and a half. Even the tech at 3T's Rv missed that it had air leveling, and with the small air leak in the front, it was settling down as we travelled. Glad we didn't go far or cranking on the wheel in the next 15 min. would have torn out wheel wells. But between 3T's and HWH, bits of wire and tape, repairs were made and back on the road.

Default Water heater winterize bypass installation

I went to winterize my bus 2 weeks ago and found the water heater fitting on the cold side was seeping where it went into my tank. Looked like the factory had bottomed out the plastic threaded fitting. It had thread sealer on it but over the 20+ years it started to leak. I had seen what looked damp when I bought the bus and then last year when I went to winterize it everything was dry.
So I took the time and installed pex and valves along with a bypass line to winterize it. I will have to take the top off the bed for access but still saves 10 gallons of antifreeze! The best is that I was able to do all this without removing the water heater and I also discovered the convection heater under the bed was installed covering the location where the heat is to come out of. I found another post about a 93 that had the same issue with the heater installed wrong in the same place. The guy that installed the convection heater at the factory was constient that year!

Rearranged some stuff in the bays now that I have a slide out tray and cleaned up the rats nest of trailer/toad plug wiring. BB evidently fitted a 7 pin round to this bus when new and I don't use that, wiring to it was a mess anyway, new 7 pin flat connector fitted in the bumper with all fresh wiring to it and the secondary 6 pin connector fitted by DonB. I also put a cheapo Reese trailer brake controller in the back under the rear start box, I know, illegal and all but I can't conceive of ever wanting to lock up my trailer brakes nor in 300k of pulling trailers have I ever used trailer emergency braking for anything other than testing to hear the click, which is more convenient from the rear of the bus and I know what my gains are typically set to for my trailers. In addition to a little box trailer for bikes I have a practically brand new 20' Featherlite flatbed that hasn't been used much lately, maybe it will see more use now that hookup is plug and play. Will need to touch up the paint as the old connector body had a different footprint.

Default Engine bay lights

Engine bay lights have always been so dull.
So I decided to upgrade the light bulbs. I put in some nice bright LED bulbs.
The first picture shows one old bulb and one new.
Second picture both new bulbs. What a difference.
