I had all the normal fuel problems with my chain saw, leaf blower, tiller and a few other gas powered things. Every shop told me the problem was with the fuel additives used by the refineries. Based on a couple of shop recommendations about three years ago I started using the Star Tron stuff.

Haven't had a single problem with anything since then.

Added hooks to front wall in basement storage for small hanging items. Might as well us it since the mother-in-law won't fit there!
I will eventually replace the flex duct with standard metal duct pipe. This just looks like a fire waiting to happen.

Just upgraded to class D tires. OK load D what ever. I got 4 new Maxxis M8008 tires. I think I got a good deal on them. I will feel a lot better going down the highways.

I put Maxxis M8008 on my Rockwood before a 5k trip last summer. Could not have been happier with them. No tire issues at all and the roads around Denver are horrible.
