Today I did my first oil change on the bird. I've done lots of other stuff since white bird came to us but not an oil change on the cat. Gotter done :-) getting ready for a trip to the coast next week.
See if there is anything that needs addressed before our trip to Stanley, Idaho in august to do mother's cremains where we did dad and Jimmy's [JP] cremains in the sawtooth mtns wh Our family spent many summers there. :-) when I was young

Since we are at the Shipshewana rally I took my rig over to National RV Refrigeration and had Leon check out my two roof AC units. He cleaned the coils, replaced one filter and gave them a clean bill of health. Excellent work at reasonable prices. Now I have one less thing to worry about.

I installed a new 3500# electric tongue jack on my trailer, the old one was getting a little weak, I found the new one at Johnsons Surplus Supply in White Pigeon, MI.

Started the installation of new air suspension seats. I hope they are more comfortable than the original seats with the foam that has returned to dust.

Somebody gave us this welcome sign a while back, so today I painted it in FC colors and attached it to the screen door. Of course one thing leads to another, and I spent quite a bit of time repairing the screen door.

I drove mine down about 8 miles of dirt road today. Didn't intend to. But, ziged where I should have zaged, I guess. A nice gentleman at the visitor center in Twin Falls, ID told me about this little side trip down along river road I should take. Beautiful things to see. Assured me a couple of times it was a good road for my motorhome. Well, several miles down this road I saw the sign, "end of pavement". No place to turn around, nice hair pin curve climbing out of the canyon too. Oh, and being a warm day I had cracked a few windows open several inches and was running my overhead fan. I got out of there and down the road I stopped for a break. That's when I remembered the windows. The bus is caked with dust/dirt inside, outside, in the basement and the toad, well it's hard to tell what color it is. Just another adventure with the BB. Now looking for a truck wash.

After getting the new HWH valve installed, fixing my Leveling jacks,
I got a chance to get over to the bus barn today and get the HWH jack bolts tightened and the tag wheel reinstalled, and support jacks removed. First chance I had to try our my new Rick torque wrench. What a great tool, easy to get the torque dead on.

The tow bar is finished. I added the cross brace and safety cables. On to the electrical.

That old Sharp microwave finally stopped heating up. Wife (she who must be obeyed ) says get a new one...

GE Advantium fit right in!

Those guys at BB really didnt want the MW to fall out! Used 48 (counted them) screws to hold it in place!!

I redid the under cabnet led lights that I had, 2 strips of 5050 leds really light up the stove.... Color balance is off in the photo!?

Cookies tomorrow!
