I think for the front, two sides, extension pole and bag it was around $1100. Great product and highly recommend.

Thanks for this. We picked our Legacy up today and drove about 100 miles through the Berkshire mountains this afternoon. Handled great with lots of power. I talked to the service guy at the dealer about the alignment - he confirmed what you said. He said he had not heard of issues, except the steering wheel being off center usually drives people to get the alignment, Ours is off a bit, though didn't notice any pull or problems. I will follow your advice though. I'll get her weighed and then try to dial in the tire pressure. It is at 110 from the dealer, I think following your advice, and getting a bit of weight in the coach will make the ride even nicer.

I have been watching the posts on the alignment issue closely. We are on the way home from a 3 week trip up the California coast. Have not noticed any tire issues, had lots of crosswinds to deal with. Wheel is slightly off center so I may go to Freightliner for alignment just for tire longevity. Thanks to everyone for posting.

Back splash upgrade

Our kitchen back splash began separating from the wall almost immediately. Unusually warm winter So. Cal. weather I's sure accelerated that process some. However, I felt this whole set up was somewhat unfinished. Photo is before/after, and a little piece of the molding I made out of some scrap pine. Very simple on a table saw. Stained with some MinWax Chestnut poly/stain to match and some plastic screw covers. Looks great and cost barely $10.

Not sure what's up with the pic. Looks like it uploads but no go?

Thing works like a charm and has crazy suction. My wife loves it. Campers Inn did the install for me and did a great job.
Here is some other stuff I was doing

I also had an Carefree Colorado LED light strip put in under the awning that can display like 20 different light colors and can have all kinds of crazy patterns. Cool. When i get it lit up at night I will have to post some pics.

Everything looks great!

I'm guessing they drilled for the vac through the floor behind the access panel next to the fridge where the heating ducting is?

Is the wall where outlet for hose is installed sturdy enough for repeated pushing the bose in? Never pushed to see if it was more than just paneling.

We installed the led awning lights too and they are great, I've been thinking about adding another strip down the center of the belly of the coach between the front and rear wheel. One 16 ft strip. I've seen this on some other coaches and it gives a really neat looking glow.

I believe so. When I talked with the technician he stated that this is the location that FR puts the installs in. So I am going with it. my DW used it and did not appear to have any problems. I will test out the plug to see how snug it is, but it appears to be just fine. When I get a chance, I will get some back side pics of the installation, just for you.

I am thinking about putting some glow lights under the coach so at night I can flip a switch and the underside will glow.

My next major project within 2 weeks is solar. Im getting a quote on Go Power flexible solar panels that are so durable you can walk on them and they are wafer thin. Im not plugged up to shore power at home that is capable of recharging my coach batteries to keep my fridge running all season. My DW likes to keep the fridge stocked once we kick off the season and not keep loading and unloading it. Not a problem when I had a TT, but this is one I can fix with solar plus I wont have to run the generator down the road which keeps the road noise down. Win win. I will have the install done first week of May.
