It's a little early for you to be up from your nap at the "place where other people work" isn't it? You normally don't wake up until 4:59 pm so you can go home.

Just a thought if they don't make you happy..a hydraulic shop may have a hardened/better rod/piston that won't rust so easy. There are a bunch of industrial applications where the equipment stores outside. You might also put a boot on them for protection.

Not so much what I did to my camper as what I did for my camper. Ordered a Champion 3100 inverter generator

No shocks this go-round. I need to find somewhere to do it.

Doesn't someone here live in Branson, MO? I could use a recommendation for somewhere that could do install shocks on the camper and replace the ones on the truck.
Sorry, no help here with the shop recommendation. Just had to ask, have you found anywhere level in that town? Went once with DW while my knee was bad. It seemed like everywhere we went there was a slant or good hill to deal with.

Haven't gotten there yet. We are still in Elkhart (at a hotel, no less). We'll head to St. Louis first and then to Branson. That's today's plan, at least. Lord knows our plans have changed multiple times in a day before. The only reservation I currently have is Branson for Sept 1. Nothing between now and then (much to my wife's chagrin).

When you get to Branson, you'll find many places to park.

The world's biggest parking lot.

Completed installation on the Firestone Level Command II kit.....onboard air compressor with gauge/switch.....will now be able to control air pressure on the Firestone Ride Rite air bags either increasing or deceasing from inside the truck cab....leave Monday for a few days and will give it it's first test....looking for a smoother more stable ride with the air bags.

This morning before it got too hot here, I installed the inside TV mount.
I did the outside on yesterday. Click image for larger version
