Worked some more on my TT brake rebuild project. I finally found a machine shop that has the capability of turning the brake drum armature (magnet) surface. They charge $35 for each drum! And in addition to that, another $15 each to turn the braking surfaces.

Just ordered 4 new Dexter 10" X 5 x 4-1/2" hub/drum assemblies, which include new bearings, races and seals. $50 each, same as turning the old drums would cost.

This job is getting easier (and more expensive) all the time! Should have all the parts - new tires, electric brake assemblies, drums, bearings and seals - by the end of the week.

I have never been a fan of turning drums or discs on anything. Turning makes them thinner and less able to dissipate heat. They then get hotter and warp. I definitely agree new drums is he way to go.

Today is the first of the month and I just switched my water heater and Norcold to propane for the day and am running my Onan for an hour under load. After the generator run I will refill the gas tank with non-ethanol gas with stabilizer. I have been using the same gas since early spring and it is low enough and we are still in hurricane season I want to be prepared for when the power goes out.

Cleaned both a/c filters as well.

Dropped off for warranty work back at the dealer. Hope it comes home soon.

Ordered new La Z Boy Pinnacle couch and rocker for our new 2016 Pinnacle because the factory stuff just doesn't cut the mustard.

I had the same problem with water in our jack head, discovered out of warranty. The company did give us a discount on a new jack. First thing I did was to buy a jack cover for around $12 much cheaper than a new jack and so far it appears to be working well.

Thanks Ed. And since the new drums come with all new bearing kits I was able to return the 4 bearing kits I purchased (about $50 total).

Lots of little things

I ordered tires, inspired by SmokerBill I looked for Maxis but could not get through Discount Tire in my area, my other tire shop guy recommended Hercules tire, made by Cooper in GA, he's ran them for 2 years on a race car trailer thing and never had a problem. Went with D load for a bit extra capacity.

Removed old flooring in entire TT, filled holes where table poles went, filled small holes with filler, painted floor, the put down sticky Armstrong tiles. Took quite a while with all the cuts, but got it done. Now putting on Oak floor molding, have to find a proper stain. The oak molding nearly cost as much as the flooring, but I am not sure I need as much as I bought.

Putting toilet back down, caulk, etc.

Ordered patio mat and some other junk....

Not sure if I'm going to take wheels off to get tires, or haul the whole thing over there. I have tons of tools and stuff, but seems awkward to jack up all 4. Read owners manual and searched on it but most say drop front, lower stabilizer jack under back, raise front, then use floor jack under the leaf spring mount. But still sort of a pain to get them all off, but was going to paint them before they swapped tires. Anyway getting ready for labor day!

I love free money, especially when it makes the cost of things closer to where they were when I was younger. LOL
