I've always thought the ramp/patio door on my Vengeance 25V was a little on the heavy side. Well, actually a lot on the heavy side. Got to looking at the "helper" springs to see if I could put larger ones in...you can't. But, I counted only four springs and it appeared there was plenty of room to add a fifth spring on the far left side. I don't know if FR forgot to put the spring in or if there are only supposed to be four (other Vengeance owners chime in here and tell me how many there are).

I called Lippert (actually got good response) and they advised the springs were the same on all the patio doors. The rep I talked to said he didn't know how many were supposed to be there but I could order one and if it didn't work I could return it ($21). Got the spring delivered in three days. Big job to install...took less than ten minutes. Door is still not exactly a lightweight but is definitely much easier to lower and raise.

One thing I noticed which impressed me. All of the nuts were secured with blue LocTight. Surprised they would do that since it's definitely more labor intensive than just clamping the bolts down with an air wrench. The nuts/bolts tighten down on the aluminum frame and using the LocTight keeps them from having to be so tight they could bend the aluminum.

I have 5 springs on my Wolf Pack toy hauler rear door. There is room for one more spring on the left side. I have a problem keeping the door on the ground to drive up on it sometimes, the way it is.

AC show is coming up. Edison is too far for me to be just looking. With the snow today I'm glad I didn't.

This morning I looked at the Wildcat and thought about putting the slides out to tinker. Then the snow came and all thoughts ceased. I did plug it back in though since the golf car was done using the electric. Hey, it's something.

I got my wheel service done over the weekend. Checked electric brakes and greased the bearings.
I am also in the process of rebuilding my Hensley Arrow. I bought it used I have used it for half the season is it was. It was an older one, but rarely used. It had the typical rusty and fading paint so I had it sandblasted, inspected welds, and powder coated. I started to reassemble it today pics to follow.

Debugging a problem with my WifiRanger rebooting every 5-ish minutes.

Received my drawer slides and now need to find time to install them.

Took out some shelves and assembled a new IKEA cabinet to try and get more order in the bunkhouse.

Had friends over for dinner. He and I worked together in Fairfax, VA into he left for a new job about this time last year. It moved him to the Houston area. I was able to adjust stops and visit with him, he wife, and little boy. Had dinner at their place last night and ours tonight. This is all after visiting another coworker back in Austin. Visiting family and friends is the greatest part to fulltiming!
