Yay!  So glad to hear a progress report and nothing unexpected, although of course we'd like it if EVERYTHING was perfect, but that's never gonna happen is it :-)

I haven't even taken Juno for a test drive (and when I do it will be straight to the mechanic) but the gate is in the fence making it easier to get in and out of the yard (tight turn despite her shorty length) and this weekend finally I think I have a dry window I can pull up the tarp and start working on the corner trim.

Do you have Discount Tires up there?  I use them here because air pressure checks and air ups are free (and my Prius Coopers seem to need filling every month - LOL).  They also can provide a pretty cheap warranty for lifetime (for things they can't fix, and not normal wear and tear).  

Look forward to hearing about the rubber roof.  I've got an aluminum roof and not sure how to deal with that, but initially I'm just going to patch with eternabond and lap seal - not sure if it needs anything to cover the whole thing.  

Thumbs up!!!!  Hope you are getting some spring there!

Hi Frances, just wanted to say that the Firestone tires if they are the Trans Force are a great choice for your rig. I have had them on my RV since I bought it in 2014. They improved the ride greatly and they handle and track very well. I have the straight tread on all 6 plus the spare. They was the only 16.5 I could find at the time and I'm happy about that. I don't think you could find a better tire.

Hi Rich
Thank you for responding I'm so happy to hear you are happy with them also!
Sorry for my late reply they are the only ones I could find in 16.5 radials other then bias ply I run bias ply on my horse trailer which bias are good for I'm very happy with the other firestones that are on the back they look good I also have used them on my pick up and have been happy!
