I'm getting an impact wrench before our next trip. I have tried using a cordless drill but it just doesn't have enough power to even stabilize much less level the rig. I always felt trying to level with the corner stabilizers was an act of futility.
We have a Ryobi 2200 that we purchased in December for strictly emergency power. Sure enough we had a tree fall on a power line after a high gust of wind. The generator very well and used about 1 gal of fuel for 5 hours. I had a very happy DW as we full time and every winter we have volunteered in OR we have lost commercial power. This was the first winter we had a generator, I think I know how to make points.
We have been doing it since 04 when we bought our Alpenlite Aspen 28RL. The decision point is how much do I really need. My collection of tools now fits in a plastic tote. Yes, we do have professionals do the maintenance that I can't with my limited tools.
We have an 08 2500 Burb with 90K+. I agree a diesel would fit our life style as we full time and tow from coast to coast and border to border doing volunteering. This is our second Burb the first was an 02 1500 with the 5.2l the 08 has the 6l. Presently we have a combined weight of 14K and I have no complaints.
I know there are many in their 70's like DW and I who are happy with their latest electronic phones, however the simpler the better for us. Just because it is new does not mean that I need to get rid of something that works.
Have been parked where a sprinkler has been hitting the side of our rig and the spots have built up. I have tried the vinegar trick but to no avail, so I hope some one has had success with a easy to apply product.
If this isn't the right forum I would appreciate it being moved.
