Check it out before camping!

Today I bring it home from the storage lot, and check to see if the stupid water filter that is unreachable burst or not. I really need to pull the external shower assembly out, which would allow me to reach the filter, and do a bypass.

There's no filter in it - just the housing. It's impossible to reach, and blowing the lines didn't blow the water out of it. Luckily Austin rarely gets down to freezing nowadays.

Understand, have a source for NOS for the Timkens.

You only answered one question. What about the other two, Just wanted your wise old opinion on that stuff. I know you know your stuff, so PLEASE share. Will Lukas 400 degree be the best? It meets alko requirements. It's like pulling teeth with you.... The ones from ebay do say USA on them stamped.

Installed a screen door bar, a key holder, Three Wrap-A-Round Step Rugs and my wireless backup camera (RVS-CW-CAM).
Adjusted the screen door which has always been just a little 'off' alignment.
Lubed all the slide tracks and finally reorganized the front storage area (a futile attempt because I know what it will look like after the 1st trip out).
Changed the oil in the generator and started it up (first starting of the year..)
So now what can I do for the rest of the night?
