Did the quarterly battery maintenance. Yeah...

Still need to change out the battery cables for the house batteries, just not to it yet.
Put another coat of Rejex on the front of the bus in preparation for the love bugs on the highway.

Default Galley drawer slide clips and locks

The galley drawers on our coach had a habit of sliding open and I tried numerous times to readjust the lock that is supposed to hold them in. This means removing the drawer and reaching in to pull out the latch. This caused the drawer slide clips to wear out and fail. I researched the slides and they are made by Accuride in Santa Fe Springs 10 miles from us and they were extremely helpful and sent replacement clips at no charge. That's really good for a product sold 24 years ago. The clips are 2236-2749-YE and I have extras that I could mail out if needed. I changed drawer locks to a lock that you push in to lock and push again to unlock and this has solved our drawer slide problem. I will do another write up of the locks.

Default Galley drawer locks

The locking mechanism on the drawers in the galley had giving continual problems and I decided to upgrade. I purchased the locks on Ebay just do a search for this "Push Button Drawer Cupboard Door Catch Lock Caravan RV Cabinet Latch Knob Latch" and you can order them in the gold finish from multiple suppliers. They were not that difficult to install and work great.

Back yard at the shop needed mowing. Coach in the way. Brought coach back to the house and treated it to a wash. Four or so hours later, I brought it back to the shop and mowed the yard!

Default Clippard Switches

Finally got a couple of hours to swap out a whole bunch of hissing Clippard valves... to find that the seat slide switch hisses. I could never hear it over the wheel tilt and suspension dumps. I fashioned some 10-32 PTC to 1/4" tube connectors with acorn nuts on them if I ever have to pull one off and maintain pressure. I think some of the switches were actually hissing from the rubber seals on the hose barbs and/or 90 degree elbo having turned into hard cracked plastic... I will replace and test, and may end up with some good ones.

Meanwhile 7yo got to play Xbox 360 LEGO Jurassic World with his Mom, 5yo got to play with Polly Pockets, and the 8mo got to crawl all over me as I tried to change out the nose vent switches.
A good night in the storage night, with a stinky smokey generator (I might ought check that a little more thoroughly)

Made my first roadside repair!

Accelerator pedal broke loose from the rod that goes thru the floor. Luckily was in the right lane, and pulled into the breakdown lane.

After letting out my required series of 4 letter words, I pulled a Macgyver and repaired it with a hose clamp! Never even got out of the coach, was back on the road in 5 minutes.

Tools and junk drawers are life savers.

Installed new wiper arms.
Originals were loose so this was a pm thing. Added bonus is these pivot 90 deg which makes getting our windshield cover on & off much easier.

Changed oil and filters. NAPA has Delvac 1300 for $58.99 + $22.00 rebate for a 5 gal pail (limit 3). That’s $7.40/gal. They also have Delvac 1 ATF Fluid for $29.99/ gal. Those are the lowest prices I’ve ever seen for our lubricants. Good til the end of June.

Default Transmission service

I took Shadow to the Allison distributor and had the filter changed and the fluid changed from motor oil to TranSynd. I will need to do another fluid change in a year or so to get to 100% TranSynd. I took it there for service because I thought they would open the pan and change / clean the internal filter, but the tech checked with the factory and said there was nothing to do - it is a metal screen, not a throw-away filter. Guess I could have changed the fluid and screwed on a new external filter myself. I guess I get brownie points for supporting local buisness....
