Washed and waxed. Found that I could get Eagle One Wax As-U-Dry from Car Brite in gallons. Placed in an insect sprayer and with a microfiber mop from Lowes, waxed it in less than 30 minutes.

You mean you spray washed it....or spray shined it...thats not waxing! Spray stuff doesn't hold up like wax does...remember "easy on easy off" doesn't always mean it will last any more than a couple rainfalls. Takes me 3 days to "wax" the beast!

Actually Wax As-U-Dry is a carnauba based wax and does hold up well considering the minimal effort. It will last 30 - 60 days. Its easy enough to do every time. The old philosophy of paste wax and working hard is a lot of wasted energy. 99% of the paste applied is buffed off leaving behind a layer of carnauba not much unlike a simple spray wax.

....with the added plus of really trying to pay close attention to the details of my rig.....if I wanted a quick wash and wax, I would pay the money and take it to an RV wash.

Our tv mount pushes down into the cabinet when the tv is not being used. The top of the mount matches the countertop and the DW mentioned it started to rub against the opening in the countertop. I got around to checking on it today and found that the mount has pulled away from the wall. I'm no design engineer, but I at least have enough common sense to know that two #8 sized screws will not hold much when screwed into 1/4 inch plywood. There is no backing behind the sidewall and the mount pulled the screws out of the plywood. Now I have see if nylon mollys will be sufficient to hold it, especially if I use more than two screws.

Finally getting back to your request.
You'll see in the pics, before adding the adapter, I had disassembled and flipped the valve around so the cable would go under the coach. Then I made a simple cable mount bracket.
You can find the valve adapter and cable separately or as a kit at Amazon.com or most r/v parts suppliers. Search for Valtera cable valve.

Full systems check, found the junky electronic deadbolt to be......Junk. Tried to reset the code, by the directions, no joy. Reset by pulling the batteries. The factory code makes the motor twitch, but doesn't make the bolt move. I'll take it apart tomorrow and see if I can at least make it work properly manually.

Otherwise all checked out fine and ready to go boondocking in a few weeks!

Took my MicroLite 18FBR to a local KOA in VA Bch on Thursday. Had to replace the shower faucet. Replaced the stock shower head with an Oxygenics while I was at it. Blew up my microwave, so I bought a new one. Tomorrow I'll figure out how to get it installed right. Today I jerry-rigged a battery platform on top of my a frame behind the propane tanks and mounted battery boxes for the 2 new group 27 batteries I had to get two days ago. Got them all installed and working right. I can't wait to relax on this trip... Well, football is tomorrow and my Giants are on Monday night... Beer is cold, so life is good!

Was that the Oregon/Michigan State game in your photo? We are just driving back to Portland after being there, so it made me lol a bit.

Yes, I was testing out the TV antenna. Ducks were on the short end at the time.

Dropped it off to have some things fixed that I missed during the pdi. The dealer seems to be totally cool with all the items. It's nice working with a dealer that's been around for 30+ years!

EZ LUBES

Be extremely careful with pumping all that grease into those axle tubes, it does not take very much at all to have it come out the backing seal, then you really have problems. I would recommend removing the bearings and had pack them along with the axle tube, then you know nothing got into the brake system, does not take much at all to mess up a whole lot of stuff, trust me!

Nothing, because we don't pick it up from the dealer until tomorrow. Our PDI is at 11.

Added water pump switch

Add a switch in the docking station to allow us to control the water pump outside when dumping or when stopping for a quick potty break...
