Thanks,

Yes, the new vents fit with no additional modifications. As for the money, that is the standing joke on this forum, we are all financially embarrassed after installing our mods (LOL)

I recommend you use Amazon Prime for most of your mods!

I found a lot of construction debris under the slide. With the slide in (and again with it out) pull up on the rubber gasket and use some sort of straight edge to scoop the debris out from under the slide. Otherwise this stuff get dragged back and forth across your floor and can keep showing up each time you open your slide.

We spent the last weekend in the Tampa area and it was cold for them. Sunday was a beautiful day with a high of 72. Didn't turn on the heat Sunday night and woke up to 62 degrees outside. Headed towards Orland to drop off our middle grandson and ran into a light rain. Headed north to Lake City and got there about 3:00 pm and it was 35 degrees outside.

Yesterday morning was 26 degrees.
This morning it's 28 degrees and freezing rain. My wife wants it to turn to snow so bad.

Supposed to be back in the 70s by Monday.

Three repairs in one location! Thanks Thor.

Happy New Year’s to all of you.
We had similar problem, very little hot water going to the bathroom sink or shower when the slide was out. Pulled the under sink cover and rearranged the pinched lines to fix it. I also found some of lines are routed thru and accessible from the storage compartment that houses the sewer hookup. If you don't already have them, I suggest getting schematics for all your unit's plumbing, electrical, vents, etc from Thor.

I sure hope she doesn't get her wish. I moved here to get away from that crap.

Jerry & Dino - awesome...I love this idea.

1) Where does one get something similar?

2) What are your rules for posting a state on the map?
i.e. - does travelling thru a state count or must you sleep in the state
to get credit?

Thanks.
