I have fond memories of Mt. Shasta. Our family took a vacation with out cousins up to Copco Lake and caught a mess of trout. Played with a black lab we named boomer. He went crazy when we pulled out the shot guns and would fetch rocks we threw in the lake from the bottom. It is a beautiful area. Have fun and post some pictures for us please.

We both can smell that mountain air and Tunce loves the place. This may not be that lake but the fishing is good and Tunce loves that cold water in the spring.

I installed the 5 star tune in my Class C. I took it for a short spin and I do like the new shifting pattern.
Being a flatlander there aren't any serious hills to test it on, but next week we'll be in the Smokey Mountains. In anxious to see how it does.

The screws of the Fresh water tank stripped and the tank was laying on the underbelly.
This related to the poor workmanship during manufacturing. So will lay the tank on 2x4 fir with 3/8 plywood on top. The heating duct in the underbelly was all rusted and flat. No wonder there was no heat from the front vent.
The storage door seal has been leaking and did do some damage to the floor (The luan ply doesn't comply with water) so have to fix that with 3/8 ply under the floor.
The wheel wells not sealed at all so water can sit on the underbelly and that's why the heating duct rusted. On the front the underbelly was not sealed either from the factory so every time it rained water would enter the underbelly and drained through a hole in the center. And the list goes on. Remember that's what we are buying.
Strapped all the wiring to the underfloor. Once the FW tank is installed I can finish insulating forward of the front axles. Most problems I encountered should not happen if they have done things right in the first place.
The brochure says 5/8 flooring, yeah right; 1/2" on top and 1/8" on the bottom with Styrofoam sandwiched in between. They are not lying but well misleading.
Brochure says 15" wheels but the 2005 came with 14" chrome wheels from the factory (this out the horse his mouth).
The Ultra Frame with the huck bolts system is in good shape it could use a few more cross members but will install them myself. Don't want the underbelly coming off and leave a trail of insulation.
The stabilizer jacks will be fasten with stainless steel 8mm bolts, instead of #12 self tapping screws.
So tomorrow there's another day.

Thanks Sebring96hbg,

That looks like it should do the trick. Costs more than the grease gun, but if it works, what the hell.

Today is the day I am going to finally clean my slide rails. They are pretty sad looking and dirty. A liberal application of Gunk, wait a while, and hose off. If that doesn't do it I will do it again. Then when dry a good lubrication with bicycle chain lube that I have been using for years.

I hate this job, but it does need to be done.

Today we went shopping and purchased new faucets for the TT. Wife did not like the small bathroom one that you could barely get your hands under to wash them. Kitchen one, you had to open the cold side all the way to get any kind of flow out of it. So we hit up Home Depot and got new ones. White ones - Jayco originals. Chrome ones - Home Depot.
