Your tile looks great. I got ours washed and waxed for first time. Wasn't to bad, waxing front top cap was a head scratcher. Folded mirro in then used ladder and put a socked foot on hood kind of but got it. Also had to get on roof and hang over front but we are ready for San Anton this week end. Gonna do some off roading with jeep and see Alamo and have few beers on river walk. I'm ready!!! Getting hot here in high 80's How your upgrades goin? Also how rig doin any probs yet? Only prob we havin our jacks don't come up right I'll go have them looked at next time we are around Dallas. I tried to recalibrate but didn't take.

No problems yet. Need to write up a brief trip report. We went to the state park the last weekend in March for the weekend, then left it there for the rest of the week for my MIL to use. No issues to report. Still working through the storage and some other odds and ends. Very happy with the black tank capacity. It made it almost a week and was only 2/3rds full. We did have to water the thirsty raccoons one night when one of the gray tanks filled up. Still have to figure what drains into to what.

I was in San Antonio for work last week. I have a crew working at the Frito-Lay down near Windcrest.

Wow looks good in the woods!! Haven't experienced trees yet. Just desert mountian areas I thought I'd pass on some new experience with slide outs. Finally finished waxing Moho by hand and went to pull slides in and they wanted to hang up on rubber seals. Crap I knew what I had done!! Don't wax sides of slides rubber seals won't slide well so I ran to lowes and got can of dry lube Teflon and sprayed all seals. Now it slides smooth as glass and prob should get in habit of using dry lube once a month

I am on the East Coast so that is our typical campground other than the beach campgrounds along the coast. Even then we tend to stay back in the trees where it is cooler.

I always treat my slide and window seals with silicone spray to keep them from sticking.

Have you seen the video on how to lube the slide mechanism? I figure on doing it at least once a quarter if not more frequently.

Yes I watched guy on YouTube lube a track like ours and I was looking at concord motors and gonna have to make a longer straw for lube can to reach drive gear. I'm looking forward to traveling to east coast a lot of good history over there another yr or so our trips will get longer like 6-8 weeks. I've already retired from north slope in Alaska and my wife is less than 2 yrs from her retirement and we gonna sell out here in west Tex and buy one more home somewhere ? Prob south Tex hill country wanna stay in reach of kids and grand kids.

History all over the country!

Sounds similar to our plan we are just a few more years behind. We were doing good until the airline industry bankrupted it's employee's defined benefit retirement plans back in '05, lost a bit more with the '08 debacle. Good news is we live on 40 acres free and clear. Don't plan to leave it anytime soon. Been in my bride's family for over 80's years and she is the last of the line. It will continue to serve as home base for the foreseeable future. If you get out this way shoot me a PM we have plenty of space and hookups.

We have been to Texas a couple of times, the last time on vacation was up in the panhandle. I was hauling my old Cardinal fiver out to Mesa, AZ for the guy I had sold it to. Now I am hitting up San Antonio every 2-3 weeks for work, get to see a couple of new things every time I go. Great country we live in and a lot to see.

We are all oilfield here in Permian Basin and we are tanking bad they are laying people off right and left but we will be ok . Our home free and clear also we set on 2 acres, I bet ur 40 is beautiful. Thank you for your offer and same applies to you and your family , you come down here and need place to stay or need any help don't hesitate to holler.

Your right about history, after I retired from Alaska I started a small trucking outfit , kind of by accident and I've been all over country and Canada. God bless amercia took on hole new meaning. Now I'm anxious to show my wife and explore deeper all the things I saw by myself.

I think I'm gonna put a chrome bull bar on front of Moho ,Mabey with couple led lights. Always thinking about that thing. Need to get lights up on awning also. We have really wore out Amazon since we got that Moho also thinking about putting rubber flaps behind rear tires. I know a big long one all the way across creates a big wind Eddie so I want 2 reg flaps. Oh? Have question? That small chrome antenna up front passenger side? Is that CB antenna? Or radio antenna for tv head unit? Welp coffee done we gonna leave for San Anton in more. Gonna go fill gas and propane. I'll check ya later

Not a CB antenna, I think it is for the dash unit. I believe the other two are on the television antenna. I will take a look this weekend. I am planning on pulling the front tv out so I can see what is up in there and what it is going to take to insulate the front cap area a bit better. I thought about a bull bar for the front to fend off the deer but haven't gotten that far along yet. Awning lights are on my list, plan on feeding them out of the fridge compartment, might use the remote control type, or switch or both. Good thing about doing all my own work is that I can do whatever I want.

How goes it neighbor ? Been busy lately. But had some experience in Moho I wish I didn't but I'm here to tell u first hand that your concord can handle 80-100mph from side with out turning over. I'm not exadurating. When we came back from San Anton couple weekends ago we hit thunderhead about 30 miles from house and it clobbered us , scared **** out of both us. The front slide topper billowing arm broke off and the wind unrolled it. Unbelievable after it passed we pulled over and looked at things. I figure sat dome all vent toppers would be gone. But everything was there. Slide topper rolled back up but all crooked. The driver side of Moho was packed with sand. We went by little car wash and hosed it down and paint was fine. The inside was dirt free. I was in shock how it took the wind and dirt. Tight seals. Good roof even topper fasteners we good shape. I ordered a new billowing arm for topper 16$ and put it on. That was all the damage. My wife and mine heart just sank on rest of drive home wondering what the real damage was once we had chance to go threw everything but I'm here to tell ya? I think we have an exceptionally well built coach. Now don't run off and chase storms because I don't ever wanna do that again. When that wind hit us I slowed down but absolutely did not stop hard turn to left to stay on road and couldn't see more that 5 ft in front of us. It still gives me the willy feeling. I thought we just might go over. But it been couple weeks and Moho still like brand new shines like dime and everything works fine. I did order a new k&n airfilter for it. Down in hill country 6 7 8% grades it pulled jeep like a champ. Great shifting no over rev. Really impressive. Hope all is goin your way

Wow! I hope I don't ever hit anything like that! Mine is still very touchy to side winds. I am planning on taking it in for a front end alignment before we do any long trips.

Just had to have two trucks brought back from San Antonio that were damaged in the hail storm. Both were brand new when they left NC. I am guestimating the damage in the $5k-$7k range. Had to put windshields in both of them to get them back. One they were able to remove the dents from the roof of the cab and the doors, still had to replace the hood. The other I don't know about yet.

If you get a chance could you take a picture of the lower rear corner of your large slide while it is in? Mine sticks out a lot further than I think it should, the "middle" corner fits tight, then the gap gets a lot wider at the bottom. It seals, barely.
