First off, I thought I’d pass on a couple of tips that I use to keep track of things as far as RV’ing goes.
I have a file called American Coach Numbers. Here’s a sample below.
Rear Axle Type
Rear Axle Inner Wheel Seal
SCA Test Strips
NAPA FIL 4105
Fuel Filter 149-3513
FG Fuel Filters
FG Oil Filter
It contains information about our coach, tag number, VIN number, FIN number, all the different belts and filters used in the coach. And whenever I buy a new repair part, it all gets logged in.
Here’s the info on my recent Kwikee step repair.
Linkage Kit #909533000
This allows me to go back and find any past repair part without having to start all over looking it up.
Next, I also have a folder on the computer called American Coach Docs. This folder contains the manuals and documentation for everything I have in the coach, from the Splendide Washer/Dryer, and the Dometic Refrigerator, to the Onan 7.5 KW generator. And everything I buy for the coach, from our new Hamilton Beach Coffee Maker, and our Tire Trakker TPMS, to our DirecTV DVR gets included too. I’ve found almost every manufacturer, no matter what, has their manuals online. But in a few cases I’ve just scanned the manual to a PDF file and in the folder it goes.
This really saves time when I need some information about something. A couple of clicks and it ‘s right at my fingertips.
About 3 PM Jan and I headed into Houston to meet Brandi, Lowell, and Landon for an early dinner. After some talking, we ended decided to splurge and have dinner at Taste of Texas, one of the top steakhouses in Houston.
But it would have helped if we’d decided to get there a little earlier. We got to the restaurant a little before 4 PM, but still had an hour wait. But it was worth it.
I think this is the only steak place we’ve been to that sells their steaks by the ounce! Jan got a Filet, while I got a 16oz Ribeye, one of the best steaks I’ve ever had.
We all had a great time and a great meal. As you can see, Landon had a great time too.
Tomorrow we’ll getting together with some friends for breakfast at the Sunflower Café down in Galveston. Really looking forward to it.
