Yesterday I replaced the two left side brake assemblies, drums, bearings and seals. Used Mobil 1 synthetic grease. Rain today, but tomorrow looks good weatherwise for changing the right side brakes and hubs. I might crawl under the TT today and replace all the existing 12 gauge brake wire from the junction box in the front to the brakes with the new 10 gauge wire I bought.

Just finished installing the other two new brake/drum assemblies. Much easier replacing with all new than dealing with spring pullers and drum machining. And not too much more in total cost, either.

Installing the new wiring is the next project.

Emptied the saw dust from almost all of my overhead LED lights. DW added a shower seal around the top perimeter of the shower as there is nothing to stop water from going down behind the plastic shower wall. DW found that out when she used the showerhead to clean the shower walls and there was a small puddle of water on the floor near the fridge.

Denn888, thanks for the comment and the picture. We haven't had any leaks so far, but it bothers me that the shower wall is kinda loose, so I think I'll get the DH to do the same thing.

If this doesn't hold we'll probably use tub caulking next time around lol, top of the surround easily pulls away from the wall

Hey Smoker, why did you have to do a complete brake system overhaul, was there an issue or are you just upgrading? Just curious since our units are about the same age, though you likely have many more miles on yours.

Cleaned up and stowed everything where it goes for travel. I'm leaving my summer host site tomorrow for my home base. Where has the past 4 1/2 months gone?

Went inside just to check on things. Haven't had her out in awhile, but the big trip down south to Fort Wilderness will be here before I know it! 😁
