Added DC & AC w/amps meters to the new unit. Also did battery cut off switch, key hook, tinted all the windows, and set up the living room tv. Working on the awning cover next. Have the pipe, just have to cut it. Headed out this weekend for the maiden trip. Hope all goes well.....

Didn't do a thing to the camper, got a new 2 cyl, 24hp, 50" cut-Cub Cadet and mowed our 1.48 acres of weeds and 13 blades of grass. Determined real quick that the rear turf tires are worthless trying to mow the ditch. Like to never got it out, SO, had to take the tires off the old 2000 18 hp with a blown motor and put the turf tires on the old one and the knobbies on the new one. Now to make a front bumper and add a trailer hitch for the rear so I can put a 2" ball in it and move Mardy's trailer around. As the boys say, have to "Dunnize" it so it is more versatile.

BTW, changing (4) 10" tires is a REAL BIT**! Too bad Cub Cadet didn't put lug nuts on the new one like the old one.

Well, all the labor was lumped into one amount. But I believe the service person told me to repack bearings, replace seals (if needed) check and adjust the brakes was about $250.

Yep...was a project....but the bad part was that the 'boy' installed the carpet and the quarter round area just inside the door, he cut clear thru the vinyl. So, I ended up hav'n to cut a section out and replacing.....color matches fairly well, now will add moulding in morn....

Check post #4 HERE

The people at Keystone, especially Scott, the Service Manager, have been nothing but great. I got a great deal on my Flagstaff and Scott has kept it in tip top shape when I've need his help.

A few days ago I had to replace one of the valves to my hot water heater because it was leaking. I cut the old clamps with my Dreml, went to Home Depot got a straight valve, 1/2 on both ends, Pex. I bought some clamps and a clamper...easy fix once I found out what to do.
