Hudsoner,

Thanks for the info. That is great. What size tire and rim do u have? My tires r goodyear G670 RV 245/70R 19.5 G. The specs on the chassis say the rims are 6.75 inch wide. The online specs for the tires say the rim width is 7.5 inches. I wonder if Thor put wider rims on it?

Shawn

I can't remember the width, but they are the standard 19.5"/70 tires for my coach.
And I can't look at them because everything is snow covered.

Picked up my mh from Ford . They replaced the entire drag link arm. Said the boots are not sold separately. All warranty. Paperwork showed $350 parts labor

Also got my day/night blinds today and rear track bar should arrive tomorrow.

Now if this rain ever stopped ill be doing some installs

Glad you got it fixed under warranty, saved a lot of money! I've never been able to buy boots separately which is why I always had to fix them myself. PIA to fix, worst part is getting the rubber clean.

Be anxious to hear if you can tell a difference when you get the track bar installed. I wouldn't complain about the rain, you might not get anymore for a while and from what I've read you need it! Lol

Wow...my 2017 has the "puck" lights in the bathroom...no need for me to change anything when it comes to LED lights. Thor must have changed that right after you bought your rig SuperD.

Knowing Thor the reason they switched is they probably just ran out of the ones I have!!! Lol

Four Winds/Thor decided to install these bathroom lights in my unit. Has anybody ever seen lights like these in as LEDs. The problem seems to be that they are 12V and have a bayonet socket. I could only find LED versions for them for well over $20 for a single bulb!
Those are the only lights left in my unit that have not been converted to LED.

A quick look found these... not quite the same but bayonet and globe - warm white. $12.99 a pair.
https://www.amazon.com/ZITRADES-BA15.../dp/B00DPBNQQ6
Says 12v but indicates use with RV, boat - which are often OVER 12V.
Everything I have bought has been labeled 12-24V.

Thanks for looking, but these bulbs are more of the type that are used inside a fixture. Their dome is way to small.
When looking at them, Amzon recommend some bulbs for me that might work.

This means, your link did help me to find the bulbs I want! Thanks again!

Glad it helps... guessing you found these:
https://www.amazon.com/Gold-Stars-20.../dp/B01D9JYAVI
and they are clearly labeled as 12-24v...

Love the marketing... 1 for $7.70... 2 for $19.95... interesting math... lol
(The offer for 2 is from a different seller they grouped together. Guessing they aren't selling many.)

Finally got a break in the rain. Maria and I look the new blinds into the mh and got them installed. Each blind uses 8 screws to hold them in place. The last blind and last screw would not go in strajght. It went in at an angle and i couldnt screw it in or out. So i left it that way

Only took pics of the first one after install. The otger looks the same

You might just look for a new light bar that's already LED. Could be cheaper that buying new light bulbs
