What did you do to the Sunline today?

There's a similar thread in an Excursion forum I participate in where people post what they've done to their Excursions that day, from filling it up or washing it to doing major jobs. After working on the Sunline today, I thought, we should have a thread like that here!

BENEFITS:
- You don't have to create a new thread for something simple
- Helps build up your post count
- Helps all of us get to know you better
- Help others learn of unique, older mods without having to know to search for them

A PERFECT PLACE TO POST:
- A new modification you did
- Maintenance you did
- A new repair (or synopsis of detailed repair explained in another thread)
- A Sunline you saw somewhere
- About paying your Sunline a visit
- A unique, random picture you took of your or another Sunline
- Your new to you Sunline!
- Meeting a fellow Sunline owner

What I did today (sorry, no pics):
- Lubed all of my wet bolts for the leaf springs
- Tore apart the tongue jack motor, cleaned/lubed everything, reassembled. It was quite rusty and gummed up (I took it off my last trailer), causing it to really strain when picking up even just the trailer. It works much smoother now.
- Put new tape on a picture and dixie cup holder that both fell off the wall
- Loaded it up to get ready to go tomorrow!

Jon

This morning I turned on the LP, filled lines to stove and lit burners. Opened gas line to fridge to bleed air and closed when smelling gas. Turned fridge power on and heard the click from the igniter firing. Waited a little while for the clicking to stop and the burner to kick in. Damn! What now? No fire. Peeked back inside and yes, I had the knob turned to 'gas', had temp set to 'high' and then I saw it. That other button to push when igniting. Mashed it in and in four seconds the clicking stopped, the fire started and fridge is now cold. Victory!

Now on to the water heater.

Dinette mods

We have made our Dinette Table removable so we can play cards with friends who don't like to set at the confining space at the dinette.
We ordered the legs from our RV dealer. The legs are the ones that would go in a pop-up camper. After installing the legs, we raised up the seats by 1 1/2 inches, remounted the flip up drawer covers to their new height. Moved the keepers that hold the table against the wall to their new height.
Table can still be used to convert dinette to a bed.

We have also put an electric jack on the front.

Replaced the vent covers for the black and grey water tanks with ones that follow the wind.

Finished putting in the 2 gallon tank for the water, WOW, no leaks.
Ran pump, let it set for 3 hours, no loss of pressure.
Sat and looked at it for ten minutes wondering how I went from tent camping to Motorcycle camping to Motorcycle popup camping (timeout camper for the motorcycle) to a Sunline camper.

Finished packing the clothes that go into the Sunline; started to pack the dry foods for Memorial Day w/e; re-arranged some of the "stuff" in the closets; assembled a Diaper Genie; Leo does not like TP in the tank - thought this might work ~ we'll see come MD W/E; TRIED to get the TV to work, which did not - going to CW on Sunday - may have to invest in the antenna modification and hopefully I'll get some reception.

An antenna mod really surprises me . . ours gets quite awesome reception. Are you using a tv that is Digital ready? Or a digital adaptor?

Every now and then the control board on the roof unit goes on the fritz and you get nothing. I had one go out on me once. After tearing the camper apart trouble shooting it, it turned out to be the roof unit

Diane - it is digital ready.....and I mean I get NOTHING!!!!! But given where we live and remembering why we pay for cable - that may be part of the issue.....we are going camping MD w/e and my friends get reception there all the time...I'll have to check it out there. But the trip to CW on Sunday should be or should I re-phrase and say will be an expensive trip!

Glady CW isn't very close for us, because it always seems to be an expensive trip for us!

Good Luck!

CW is about an 1 1/2 hr trip so thankfully we don't get there often...but then again the darn internet sales ad are always popping up and how can you not take advantage of free shipping????

Make sure the switch is on if it is disconnect the connection on the roof check it with a volt meter between the little center wire and the outside connection if it has 12 volts replace the head common problem the replacement should come with the little extra "wingman".

I guess it is some thing I did to the camper because I made a bracket that now is part of the tire mount. It a fiberglass tower with my ham radio antenna on top up about 25' (yes there are guy lines they are just hard to see) It should draw a lot of spectators at the camp grounds. If there are any ham campers out there it is a 10,12,15 meter home brew rotatable dipole. It takes me about 20-30 mins to put it up.
