My new set of 5 Maxxis 205-75-15 tires arrived via UPS this morning. Pulled the TT wheels, took 'em to Discount Tire, and had them mount the Maxxis tires. Goodbye Marathons!

I had the tires mounted in two batches- two the first trip, then three on the second trip. First trip, the tech went ahead and balanced them for free! Second batch, the tech wasn't quite so generous. However he gave me a bargain price, $20 bucks for balancing 3 tires. Mounting the tires was free, and the new valve stems were $4 each.

Bought new lock washers and nuts for my new brake assembly install project. Made up a little homebrew penetrant (WD-40 and transmission fluid) and painted it on the nuts that hold the brake assembly plate to the axle. Broke all the nuts loose and retightened them just to be sure I'm won't be dealing with any frozen nuts when I do my install.

Brake drums will be here tomorrow. Still need to buy a can of Brake Kleen to remove any protective coating from the new drums, and a handful of waterproof electrical connectors for the brake wiring. It's going to be a fun project.

Found out this last trip the valve is leaking on my AquaMagic Style 2 porcelain toilet. AARG, I hate working on that kind of stuff, but it will get done.

What Did You Do To Your Jayco TODAY?

Installed a Sleep Number RV king in the bedroom. Had to cut a 1"x 3" hole in the top of the bed frame. Can't wait to try it out this next week.
