New sway bars and other improvements
I recently bought a new Jeep to tow behind my FR3 and so finally got the whole tow bar mechanism installed. At the same time, I decided to have heavier duty sway bars installed front and rear. Driving home from the place (County RV in El Cajon, CA, who did a great job) was a bit intimidating as I was on my own and towing a vehicle for the first time. Turns out that was okay as long as I remembered I had that extra length. The Jeep just follows like a duckling following its mother. Unhitching was a bit of a challenge, but I think I've got it down.
And, the sway bars were fantastic. What a difference. Previously I felt like I was always working just to keep the thing on the road. Much easier handling. Not cheap, but worth every penny.
Other recent improvements have been:
Tankless water heater: love that I have unlimited hot water, but it doesn't regulate itself well. Supposed to control heat by the flow, but I think my water pressure may be too low as it gets a bit too hot when the tap is full on, then something trips off and it cools down for awhile. Makes taking a shower an interesting experience. Still, I'm working with it and hope that if I get to a park where the water pressure is better it will smooth out.
Fantastic Fan in bedroom: Really love this. I got the one with the remote, can change directions and speed. Really helps with cooling down the RV and moving the air. I'm getting one put in the living area next week.
Shower door: Great improvement. Got the accordion kind. Keeps the water from getting all over the floor
So, I'm close to ready to really hit the road. Retiring in November and heading east into Arizona to start. Then, who knows.
