Going to the mother ship

Following the rally am taking “Pearl” to ETI for a few things including: shelves in wardrobe, new sewer hose holder, check electric awning & hehr windows (replaced under warranty but still not right). Also have door assessed. I assume there is a standard placement of the shelves in wardrobe. How does that work out for you with the 17b? Anything else I should have them check as long as I am there? No problems that I am aware of. Changed some plumbing to outside shower to include shut off valves & reoriented the filter to the pump after reviewing the video. Tia.

Perhaps brakes and wheel bearings?

Hehr is a brand, not a type of window.

When we took ours in to replace the microwave they also put a rubber lip over all the Windows but not the bathroom window. An added protection to the awning Windows. I think to prevent water getting on the hinges? At first we were not sure if we liked the look but we do not notice it now. There was no cost for this.

Thanks GbaGlo. Any particular reason you wanted Hehr windows, or were they just standard?

I think eti charges $75 for each shelf. I’d suggest investigating elfa shelves/racks at the container store. I believe there’s a configuration that fits nicely in that wardrobe which will give you more versatility for not much more cost than two shelves.

Thanks for your responses. The shelves are now $85 per. Have had bearings repacked& brakes checked this winter before the 2 month trip to Az. Wonder if solar needs any kind of maintenance check.

If you haven’t done so, wash your panel(s) off. Even a light layer of dust can adversely affect performance. This is one of the main reasons we travel with a ladder
