We were at a park & they escorted a motorhome next to us, the wife jumps out with her walkie talkie & heads to the rear, in the meantime the driver is talking out the window to the park escort, all the while the wife is back there giving instructions getting louder & louder, once they finish their conversation the driver says to the escort would you mind going back there & tell my wife to turn her walkie talkie on.
So be sure your wife knows how to use the new walkie talkies, mine forgets to release the talk button so it's a one sided conversation.

Hard to see in the photos maybe should have painted them white
That's a great idea!!! When I got my new TV in August, I kept the rubber bed mat from my old TV, thinking that the heavy duty 3/8" rubber mat would come in handy for some kind of project(s) in future. Well I now have my first project that I'll be using that mat for once the weather breaks!!!

My only concern is that when driving the mudflaps might be flapping against the leveling jacks?!?! Need to keep them far enough behind the tires so they don't get "sucked up" into the tire, but forward enough of jacks. Will have to check spacing tomorrow.

Thank you IRV2!
Mike

LOL!!!

I'll definitely have a training session with her. She used to work EMS, so I'm hoping she can respond to radio training without too much stress on the instructor.

Replaced the zerks on the suspension, from straight to 90*. Will be much easier to get the gun on!

Nice addition. Did you change out the wet bolts or just the zerks?
