Let the fuel run low, then added Sta-bil Diesel and topped it off the other day. It will be parked for several months, just exercising it every few weeks.

Awesome! Is your OEM EGT probe pre or post turbo? Also, check out the Edge Insight monitors if you ever get sick of looking at your phone all the time for your gauges.

Aired up the tires to "tow pressure" and reinstalled TPMS sensors. Leaving host position Sunday morning after 4 1/2 months.

SWMBO reported a "vibrating noise".

Had her take me for a demo the problem ride. Clearly the sound of a loose heat shield.

Got the truck on the lift. The bolt and clamp holding the cover over one of the catalytic converters were rotted out.

New 5-.8 x 15 mm bolt & nut and a 2.25" muffler clamp. We are good to go!

Crap, forgot to adjust tire air pressure. She mentioned the truck felt "floaty" after we brought the tires up to 40 PSI at the last routine service.

Replaced my liftgate glass button, the OEM switch rubber cover disintergrated (6 yrs old). The new switch button uses a different material.
small screwdriver and needle nose did the trick.

Towed my Designer from Panama City, FL to my home base site in central Alabama. 12.5 mpg. But then again you probably don't want to be behind me. I do pull over to let the speeders get by when on 2 lane roads.

Replaced both power steering hoses. Supply line busted. While doing it I went ahead and replaced the return line as well. Interesting thing when I read the packaging with the new hoses, they recommend new hoses every 25k miles. 30 yrs of driving I have never replaced a hose on any vehicle. And I've had several go well over 100k miles. Who knew???

After my tow from the beach to my home base this past Sunday I left my Designer there and drove to Little Rock, AR to visit my sister for a few days - another 450 miles. During this last trip not towing and driving on flat terrain at a steady 62 mph my TV got 21.5 mpg. I'm obviously very pleased with this and it currently has 153,000 on the odometer. Bone stock and definitely staying that way.
