Also, I think it was JamieGeek who mentioned the Lenovo Ideacenter stick PC (maybe in another thread). I race go karts, and I have uses a laptop to analyze data from the kart. The stick works for that, but it isn't quick enough to run full HD video in iTunes unfortunately. Stuff I ripped from DVD plays OK, but things I bought in 1080p from the iTunes store stutter or fail to play. If you're looking for something to run HD video through, the stick isn't a great option.

Hi Dino,

Quick question on your soap dispenser. How is it holding up being you now installed 4 months ago and did you just use the adhesive on the back only to mount it?

2018 29m

Hello Everyone and a big thanks to Jerry for starting this fantastic thread! I just got back from the Thor factory tour today. I was hoping to see my 2018 29m come off the line yesterday but unfortunately there is a delay and it won't be coming off the line until next Friday now. The tour was interesting to see how they are made. All hand made except for the vacuum bonded walls.
Chris

I originally had that but wouldn't work unless had active WiFi several parks It is unavailable or you need to pay for it looking for a product that mirrors without Wi-Fi could be wrong but didn't work for me. Thanks

Chromecast creates it own wifi and you just connect your tablet to the chromecast itself, i use one to mirror my front tv to the rear one

I installed the same soap/shampoo holders. Dino and i both only used the silicone adhesive. No screws needed. So far so good for me but i only fill them half way and remove them while driving. When driving i put them into the bathroom sink. The hard part for me was finding the best place to mount them. At 6'4" my shoulders hit them in most places. Finally decided to mount them forward by the corner. I still managed to hit and knock one out of the holder throwing soap everywhere. It didnt break thankfully.

One more thing. I added more silicone adhesive to the back. What came with the dispenser wasnt enough for me. More is better.

We had some dispensers in our shower like that in our old 5th wheel. Got rid of them after a while as maintaining them (cleaning, etc.) became much more of a hassle than simply tossing a bar of soap in the shower.

Woo Hoo, leavin' on a Jet Plane today!!! Going to Germany, our daughter and her husband are in the Air Force stationed at Ramstein and she is having her first baby, a boy!!! Can't believe how excited I am, daughter said she wants me in the delivery room to hold her hand, made me cry! Be gone for two weeks.

MH is at the dealer for minor warranty work, said it would take 4-5 weeks which will be just about right, should be ready right after we return home. I work two weeks and two days after we return and then join Jerry in the unemployment line, Woo Hoo again!!!

Don't know what the wifi situation will be, will be spending most of the time holding my grandson if I can get him away from my wife! Best wishes to everyone, be back in two weeks!

Well I just got back from a coworkers house, former coworker since I'm now retired. He has a Fleetwood Tierra 32h. He's complained about the ride for the past 2 years. So today we did the CHF front and back with the brackets plates up front and we added a rear track bar.

We also removed both front and rear sway bars and lubed the poly bushing with poly lube. I don't know why Ford would spend the money to put the upgraded poly bushings but not lube them. Guess the extra couple of pennies would hurt their bottom line.

After shopping for the bracket bolts and Loctite we got started at 1030am. finished the front by 1115am and decided to go to lunch. We did the normal cop lunch for at least an hour then back to work. THe rear track bar went in easy. His mh sits higher than our Thors with much less stuff in the way. Track bar took about 2 hours to install. I learned a lot about the install doing mine, which took me one solid day and couple more hours the next day. SO this job went very smooth.

Total work time was around was about 3- 3 1/2 hours. Not bad for a guy that never turned a wrench.

Test ride will be next week. Hope he's happy.


Jerry
