I pulled mine out from the shed, ran my gen with A/C to put a load on it, installed my new AV selector and watched some football.

Man I am so glad to live in the south and not have to worry about winterizing.

Cajun, that's my winter routine. Pull out the coach, start the genny, turn on the furnace and fireplace and watch tv. That's my winter camping

Sure, rub it in to all of us up in the north that need to winterize.

Well took another project off the list today. The rear closet in the full bath was in shambles. All the hardware to keep the doors latched were broken, a screw that holds the top rollers was missing making for a real sloppy slide.

Took the doors off and replaced and tightened all the screws for the roller hardware. Removed all the broken latches and replaced with Mighty Mite double magnetic 9lb. pull hardware.

Then found a piece of window track rubber glide left over from my car build and cut pieces and stuck them up in the closet track for bumpers to absorb the door when it slides open.

Working very nice now, just have to see how they hold up once the coach gets put to use.

Nice mod Joe. Mine has different hardware but the plastic clip that holds the doors closed keeps breaking. I order a couple a year. I might just do that to mine. Thanks for sharing.

Yeah the sliders had upper and lower some sort of plastic hooks that went into another part on the door itself but at all four locations their was at least one part broken. I think these will work fine but won't really know till I start drifting round some horse shoe type exit ramps next year.

I started to look for a rubber type heater hose to put up into the track for a bumper but then came across this other material. Looks like there are suppose to be a screw on each side up in the track that is suppose to act as a stop. One side it was bent and the other it was snapped off. I made the pieces of rubber long enough to keep the handle of one door a couple inches from the other door. They really work well. I shouldn't be hearing that banging noise anymore.
