Light cover

buffalohunter, I found this one, I think it's the same light. Good luck Sir.

It looked like the the problem was that the dicor didn't hold up on the plastic skylight. 3" eternabond tape was placed over the seams and rolled to a hopefully tight seal now. I wasn't sure but it looked like the skylight had a fracture right in the center that could have been leaking too. I covered it as well with a small patch. If I still get condensation I will try to find a replacement skylight.

I also need help to locate a replacement overhead lamp cover. The mounting came loose and the cover crashed onto the table and shattered. Any help on where to get the cover would be greatly appreciated. I guess I can't post a photo unless I use Tapatalk app. The cover is the one over the dinette table.

Installed my Jack-E-Up, came in the mail a couple days ago, but winter decided to play peek-a-boo this spring. Still have to get some 12awg ground wire and electrical quick disconnects. Previously the jack used the mount to frame for grounding. I used a handheld jumper wire to operate the jack after install. Installed using blocks & bricks vice attaching to the TV to hold the tongue up. There is a slight chance after raising the ball mount after the axle flip that I may still have to pad the Jack-E-Up base when I drop the tailgate. After I get the electrical completed, I'll test fit the operation with the tailgate.

Not the camper, but had new shoes installed on my Ram. Got a great deal on these Yokahama Geolander AT GO15 when I ordered them online from BJ's Club at $158 each after a $40 promotion on 4. Even Tire Rack online had them at $219 each and they are usually one of the lowest price when I've looked.
I went to Load range E at that price even though It's more than I need, but nice to have. They didn't even charge me to install 4 new TPMS sensors I had gotten from Amazon. The guy was very thorough on the install to and even hand torqued the lug nuts with a torque wrench after using the impact wrench.

Those are good tires. I put a set on my dually about 30,000 miles ago. No complaints here.

Got to the store to pick up 12awg wire and large ring connectors to electrically ground my power jack since I mounted the Jack E Up. Had to find a longer metric screw and star washer and nut for a spacer on the only exposed small screw that was grounded to the jack, one out of seven that were not jack chassis grounded! And it was also the only one recessed. Jacks working fine. Amazon ordered some Anderson quick disconnects to finish the job right.

Installed the new NOCO battery box and 2 Trojan T-105 batteries. I also replaced the factory-installed battery disconnect switch with the Blue Sea System switch from our previous TT and relocated a couple resettable breakers.

Factory installation with battery box removed.

New NOCO HM426 battery box, re-used Blue Sea Systems battery disconnect and relocated resettable breakers. I cut a vent hole in the bottom and lid of the new box and used gasket maker and screws to install a vent tube in the lid of the new box.

New Trojan T-105 batteries. Note that I have no tools to make custom cables so I purchased the shortest 1 ga. battery cable I could find.

I may replace the factory ground wire with a thicker gauge cable later.

Replaced the outside shower. Winterizing last fall could not get the old shower to shut off. New one works fine.

Installed a Curt 13703 universal adjustable width receiver hitch on the back of my 2019 Rockwood Roo 23ikss
All I can say is not for the faint of heart and you best have a welder if your setup was like mine. I had to relocate the 2 rear stabilizer jacks more forward, remove and modify the rear freshwater tank support angle iron and add 2 more frame to frame angle irons to be able to weld the cross straps under the tank (couldnít re weld the factory ones due to it would have melted the plastic tank) and numerous other mods.. Was it worth it ? Not sure that remains to be seen.

Re figured my TT height after the flip. 10'11.5" now, based on factory original specs. I plan on physically measuring it soon. So right now if the low clearance is at or near 11', go SLOW!

Got in my Anderson power pole quick disconnects yesterday. Checked out a few Utube since they are kind enough to provide NO INSTRUCTIONS. Installed them on my power tongue jack wires so now I have full easy use of my Jack-E-Up equipped unit. BTW, once installed the jack is only held in place SECURELY by the TT weight on it. So now, not a safe option to leave the jack on the TT during travel.

I removed the 3 step MORryde Strut-Assist step that the Rockwood factory installed and installed a 4+1 step Torklift GlowStep Revolution Uprising step. The MORryde worked OK and I did like the strut assist, but I wasn't totally satisfied with the quality. I had the ball studs break after only a few uses, the stop brackets that rest against the outside of the door frame flanges are so thick that they bulge and scratch the screen door and the adjustment holes on the feet are too far apart to allow for fine adjustment.

After reading my earlier posts here about my dissatisfaction with the MORryde steps, Torklift offered to send me their steps to review. I'll have a full review of the Uprising steps in a separate thread later after we've finally had a chance to go camping this year (when the campgrounds open up) which I'm hoping will be the end of June, but I can say I'm impressed with the quality and my concern about the mounting bolts on the door frame flanges interfering with the screen door was unfounded. It was a very easy installation.

Here's a pic of the old MORryde 3-step StepAbove steps.

FINALLY dewinterized the plumbing and sanitized it while I was at it. First, I just used city water to flush out the piping. Then unbypassed the water heater. May have overkilled on the bleach. I poured almost a half gallon out of one of the smaller bleach bottles into the tank. I used a cut off water bottle screwed onto one of those clear hose water fill adapters to pour the bleach. First time had water overflowing from my water tank. Used my water pump to run bleach water through everywhere. My hands still smell like I just got out of a public swimming pool

Suggestion: next time, let your city water hose drain, then pour the proper amount of bleach into the end of the hose, then fill your tank with the hose.

At 1/4 cup per 10 gal, you used enough to sanitize a 320 gal tank!

I don't think you'll need to sanitize for another few years!

I looked at mine sitting in the driveway. I was supposed to go to ME this weekend but the campground was only able to open for ME residents. I couldn't find a campground in NH that was taking reservations when I found out that I couldn't go to ME.

When doing bearing maintenance, had a questionable bearing on one axle. Bit the bullet and changed all the bearing and races out for new Timkens. Also finally had the opportunity to install my 30 amp Smart Plug inlet and the cord end unit. When I removed the factory Furrion inlet, I found the old inlet had been letting a small amount of water by the seal. When I installed the new inlet, I added some lexel around it for extra weather protection.
