Solar dude, I'm
Headed there first thing AM. Stopped at a rest area about an hour away tonight. They charge about $25 a wheel. So yes the price stated is correct or close to correct. There's no way I'm dismounting 6 wheels to have someone polish them...even if it were free. No way. I'm more than happy to pay someone $150 or less to polish them while I eat my lunch inside my air conditioned coach. Smiley

'A Cut Above' is beside the Pilot truck stop which is beside the 75 Chrome shop! Min had not been done in years, the first time it was $120.00 to sand 4 wheels on the rear and polish all six outside. Each time after that is $80.00 to polish the six tires! (truck)
Tell Feather Duster I said hello!

15,000 miles on oil is way too much. Why so many miles before you change? Oil is the blood of the engine. Look after it.

Change them one at a time, running the engine between each. That will help retain prime.

I have a fuel pressure gauge on the secondary filter. You should see 60 psi at fast idle if I remember correctly. Whatever it is, when you see it decreasing is the time to change filters.

And carry a set of spare filters with you to have on the road.

I was soon joined by my dog, who had crawled under the bus with me. Animals can sense an earthquake coming and she had a flashlight in her mouth and had already changed the batteries!

That really is funny. I was in the barn the other day and laughed out loud when I thought about it.

Sorry, didn't recognize the name of your disposal. Yours was the thread I recalled.

My 5a has a ball valve just before the primary filter.  If I close the valve when changing the filters, I will not need to re-prime the system.  If I were to leave that valve open, I would loose the prime.  I do not know if the valving is original or installed later, but if you have one use it.  If you do not have one, it would be a good thing to install.

Interesting Bruce. It would depend on if you use the big 3 inch hose like most do. If so I would use it on if only for the fact that you can use a short 10 foot garden hose or up to a 150 foot of 5/8 hose instead. A lot easier to clean and store. I drain the tanks first black and then the grey through the black and out through the shared 3"exit pipe right into the disposal. I have a top 3 inch fitting I remove and spray out the tank through it with anti-siphon coupling as well as straight down the disposal after done and the hose that I drained through. Roll up and drain then connect the ends together and put it away. Simply and no ripples in the hose to collect any stuff you don't want in your bays. HTH
