X2!! Just bought Two Hondas 2000 for the trip to Arizona so I could do a Flying J or boondocking in the desert.

Added a video cable to the bedroom TV outlet... so I can watch my Clint Eastwood movies in there and don't have to be on the couch in the living area... oh... and Star Wars, too... It was harder to do than I thought it would be... but I got it and it looks good.

Engineered this out of the swing door for the central vac parts, used a heavy duty drawer slide on the floor.

Can't see beside it but I put in a sharkbite brand faucet pocket and purchased the $80 crimping tool for the water lines and ran red and blue lines from the sink at the foot of the bed. Ran the drain on the ledge below the window and threw the sink cabinet with the water lines, then cut a hole in the floor rant he drain down and spliced it into the sink drain in the under compartment.then boxed it all in ,still need to stain the box going to wait forearmed weather.

It is sitting in the driveway getting ready for 2 feet of snow, even tilted it back so snow melts in the back of the driveway otherwise it drips water in the front making the driveway and makes it an ice rink

Unfortunately, I repaired the plastic fender well that was damaged when we had a blow out. The plastic cracked on all of the holes where the screws attached. I bought a fiberglass kit and matching paint. I fiber glassed the grommet holes and painted to match. The screws were replaced, but I had to also paint the head of the screws. Came out pretty good. The reason I spent the time to repair is that Prime Time has not responded to two inquiries about replacing the fender. I'm happy I went this route.

For future reference:
There is several places to buy after market fenders online.

This is the next mod, got this yesterday at a great price, was the last one manager marked it down to $75. Just another one of those things our trailer didn't come with one. Will post pics when I put it in in the spring.

Received some GY Marathons via UPS from DiscountTireDirect...$25 off, $60 rebate (if using their store card), and free shipping. Effectively $327 for 4 ST225-75-R15 LR D tires. I haven't even pulled the bombs off yet, and already feel a sense of relief.

This current deal is good through tomorrow.

hidee ho

GreenImp,
Hello, hey,how about sharing your results with those new Goodyear Marathons after you have had them on there awile? Our Surveyor is 1 1/2 years old now and probably 5-7000 miles on the chinese bombs that came with it. I would appreciate your comments as I will be replacing ours this fall with new tires of some sort. I hope to go from a load range C to D but from what I have read on this forum load range D are hard to find in a 14" tire.
Thanks!
Happy Camping!

Added 1' of LED lights above the switch panel and put it on the step light switch. This goes with the motion light I mounted on the wall across form the door. No more fumbling around in the dark.
