Oh, and I forgot to mention on the prep. No, I didn't prime. I scuffed the pipe with coarse steel wool then whiped it with a rag doused in laquer thinner to really clean it well. The thing to remember is you have to bake it on right after application. So, when done, start the generator and let it run for 20 minutes or so. I did the same on my last hauler and it lasted three years with some pretty decent use. The only place it ever failed was from rock strikes. I also did the hanger while I was at it so it wouldn't rust either.

Looking good Stan! The Intensity Pkg. is a winner for sure. We were back and fourth between it and paint for a while. It made the decision much harder...

PS: Would give anything if I could delete up here in MA and still pass out annual inspection...

Thanks, Rodney...

I have my Progressive Industries hard wired surge protector, but haven't installed it yet. The wiring is very short and in a tight space for this 48 year old to climb into.

Ordered 6 new Goodyear G614's with metal valve stems to be installed on Monday.

Purchased the ventless washer dryer combo today.

Should have the X-Factor cross members orders this week.

I like your modifications so much Rodney, decided to just copy what your doing....as long as the money doesn't run out.

Golf Cart in the garage. We are at Ocean Lakes Campground in Myrte Beach, SC. First trip and loving it, except for the rain today.

I'd give anything to be on our first trip today... Good deal. Maybe someday I'll run into you you out there....

I do have a few small issues to resolve and Bob Elson with XLR have been very responsive to my emails. Bob took the time from his busy schedule to send me pictures of my unit going down the production line. XLR really cares about the customer and is first class.
