Default Party Down Under

Under the bus today changing a rear suspension pilot valve and both ride height control valves. I hate working underneath but have mitigated the suck factor a little by getting a comfortable creeper with trays for tools and such. A good headlamp helps too and I’ve also begun wearing safety glasses to keep the debris out of my eyes. It’s still a pain but I’m almost caught up with preventative maintenance under there

Doesn't take much ramp height to get the rear up to decent level to get under it. Reaffirms the need for me to build some ramps as one of my first projects.

Default WOG Clock

We put up are new WOG Clock. We put it above the door.
To hang it we used 3M removable hook.
Now we don’t need to use our GPS as a clock.

Default Lighting / electrical

I installed two dual-port USB charger outlets in the rear wall of the bedroom - one on each side over the nightstands. I wired them to a new 10A breaker in the load center over the water heater. There is room in there for maybe 4 new breakers! I also added a small 100A busbar (blue sea) with a 10Ga wire running to the ground bussbar over the streetside window behind the lights. I also added some LED strip tape to the ceiling of the load center / utility compartment fed from the light switch for the right side closet door, so when the closet is open, the light comes on in the load center accessed through the closet.

I just installed a couple of those as well. One at the nightstand and one by the couch. However I decided I would never use the phone jacks, so they got repurposed as the USB outlets. And I reused the old phone wire to power the USB jacks. Replaced the old phone input plug with a fuse holder and powered it from the nearby water fill switch.

Default New Fuel Lines and 1100 mile "sea trial"

C&L Diesel from Burgaw, NC recently completed the fuel line upgrade on the Silver 92. Billy and Audrey are still working on some things with Bus 156 and I am pleased with the completed projects.

My daughter and I had a little business to attend to in Bristol, TN. So we took the bus for a "sea trial" and ended up in Nashville. Stayed a few nights and headed home. Knock on wood, she ran like a dream going and coming, up and down all of those hills.

Joker Diesel in Nashville, TN helped me look over a few things before heading home Monday morning. Matt and Bobby are real nice fellows and I believe they will treat you right too. They enjoyed looking over the bus, appreciated the quality, and welcomed the opportunity to work on Wanderlodges.

Elm Hill RV Resort (Percy Priest Reservoir) on Nashville's east side is a nice place to park and relax. The staff was friendly and the LP fairly priced.

Default Refrigerator problem

On our last trip besides the transmission problem the refrigerator also quit. We have the Dometic 7130 that has been working very well. This turned out to be a burned board on the AC input terminals of the control board. The Dometic has an ice maker which adds a 120VAC freezer plate and that kept the freezer at 28 degrees and the refrigerator at 50 degrees. No food was lost. I suspect corrosion causing a heating of the slide on connector. The amazing thing is we never smelled anything. This area is protected by a Halon extinguisher and there was not enough heat to activate it.
