Sanatized the fresh water tank. Called Monaco the other day to purchase the round HR decal for the front of the motorhome, mine is faded.They wanted $67 for it, told them forget it! Got some blue model paint and a small brush and painted the decal. It looks great and cost me nothing!


Amazing, they should pay you to put that ad for them on your coach! in Yiddish it's chutzpah! Escapee organization gives away all but the smallest decals for free.

Built and installed spare tire carrier. I already had a drop adapter for the hitch to get the tow bar near to the proper height and the extra 2 x 2 receiver has been on my mind for a couple years.

Winnebago provides a spare on this coach but they put it in a compartment that is about head high and on the drivers side of the rig. Gravity gets the tire out, but it takes two strong people to get the tire back into the compartment. So having had a need one time to change a tire, blowout last year and no tools meant a 3 hour delay waiting for road service, I said NEVER AGAIN.

So with a bit of surplus 2" x 2" x 1/4" tube and a bit of welding and my spare is now rear mounted. I have a removable 30" extension to facilitate installing a rope fall to handle the tire. I have a 42" breaker bar and sockets to change the tire.

All that remains now is to order a tire cover.

As a side benefit I now have a really nice compartment for hoses, filters and cables.

Now you should put a 3rd brake light at the top off the bar over the tire.But it looks real good, good job


Life is too short; enjoy it the best way possible

You are going to get a ticket because the license plate can not be seen from the rear if a highway patrol is following you. The tire covers the license plate. Unless you moved the plate!
