Let's see... we've supplied the cabinets and fridge/freezer with necessities for our trip. Brought in fresh linens, I've sanitized the lines and fresh water tank and made sure the black and gray tanks were empty. Now I am getting ready to wash it and the toad. Guaranteed to rain!

Replaced my Dometic thermistor again... First one was DOA, First one was a generic one $45.00 and the second was a OEM $76.00 but this one is working, so far anyway.

Thanks for letting me know. I figured between 1 and 2 hundred.

Are you in the states or Canada?
I was thinking about 1 to 2 hundred so wanted to see about what others were asking / getting

Changed out the gearbox and motor for the front landing legs. Not very difficult and the difference in 'noise' is amazing. Finished up last nite just before dark so haven't taken the old unit apart, but imagine it will be happier when it lifts. Head out in a week for 2 weeks asphalt camping at a fireworks stand.

I've never rotated them the non-joking way though. Can't imagine it mattering. They're not even balanced (the new ones will be).

BUT, they're filled with nitrogen. Thank goodness for that (he says sarcastically).

So, I have 13,600mi on my non-rotated China bombs.

I don't rotate mine. With the mileage that I put on they will need to be replaced because of age before they wear out so I don't feel that it's necessary. Even if you put a lot of miles on rotating them won't make much difference in tire life if they are all wearing evenly.

I lube most everything in the camper with 3 in 1 lock Dry Lube. It works great on locks, latches, hinges, slides, etc.

We clean the window tracks first, then use T-9 Boeshield.

I installed a piece of granite tile I cut to make a usable shelf in the Neo-Angle shower. The small shelves in the corner of the tub would not even hold a single bar of soap.

Since I could cut 4 of them from a single 12x12 piece of tile, I thought at first of putting 4 of them in. Then I realized they may have been a hazard if DW or I slipped in the shower, so I only put in one, higher than my head so no hazard at all.

I made a pattern out of a piece of manila folder, transferred it to the tile and cut it with a mini grinder. I dressed the front edge with a bit of 3 in 1 oil so it would not look too dull

I used Lexel to secure it and blue masking tape to hold it from falling or drooping while the Lexel cured. I also sealed the top with the Lexel so water would not get under it and form mold.

Here are a few pics:
