Thank you sir, may I have another.
Are you going to a "heavy truck" inspection place? Mine was like 7 bucks at the local quickie inspection place.

After 7 years of trouble free service, had to repair our Microphor air toilet. It did not quit working completely , but it was a little bit of a job to make it flush. I had a couple of rebuilt sequencer valves I had got from folks who choose a different unit. It seemed complicated with half dozen line coming off of the valve assembly, but all are clearly labeled in the manual. My old assemble had a fix flush with a fix orifice. This replacement has an adjustment valve, making it easy to adjust cycles.
Works good not, hope it will last another 7 years.

Yes, I went to Southern Tire on 290. The inspector tried to charge me $7, but the cashier said that the coach was over the weight limit, so it would be $40.

It wasn't worth the fight, but I may do something different next year.

Spent WAY too much time on a new light bar for the toad! Made it out of aluminum and built it so it folds up after removing it from the toad so it will fit in the back of the Toad.

Once I get the air line tapped from the BlueBird, this toad project will be finished (and legal).

Be careful with the power washer on your bird. It will take the clear coat off in a heart beat then your bird will look like it has a “ skin disease”. Don’t ask me how I know. I will show you at WOG.

I fixed a generator radiator leak that turned out to be a bad hose clamp when I replaced the lines with silicone.It wasn't a bad leak but I needed to add a little antifreeze weekly at Q and Mexico. Of course it was the far back fitting so until I could safely get to it I did not. I also sterilized the water tank after filling in Mexico and Arizona. (No offense but it ain't Oregon
Pure water.)

First time using ramps and it went smoothly. A messy job for sure ! The ramps are heavy but with casters not all that difficult to move around and store.
