I picked up the rig from Scott’s RV yesterday and paid the tab. When I went to unlock the door I found scratches in the black paint around the key hole’s again. I swear, how friggin hard is it to insert the key without bouncing it off the paint first? Every place I take it to scratches the black protective paint around the key holes and it drives me batty.
In the scheme of things it costs 30 bucks to paint so it looks like I’ll be doing it again, heck why not just make painting the the door handle again a yearly thing just for giggles?
Here is the door handle after re-painting it again last year.
The rig drove so nice with the new tires, expansion joints were nearly silent so I was very happy with them. Collier always scratches the door handle too so I don’t think I can get away from it. As long as the work performed is done properly I guess I can re-paint the door handle, it just sucks people can’t find the key hole.
On to the RV show…
Collier RV was having an RV show/sale so my brother and I decided to check it out since we were dropping the rig off to get the roof cleaned and protected from chalking any way. I didn’t take a picture of our rig because the chalking was so bad there wasn’t any blue showing anywhere, the rig was truly disgusting. Collier is going to check out the roof and see what can be done to prevent the chalking. At some point we are going to paint the rear cap and top of the front cap so bye bye chalk for good.
My battery was almost dead so I got 1 picture at the show. It was of a Serrano 33A front engine diesel that blew me away for the money. We also saw two 5th wheel Redwood models and they were the very top end of the spectrum, very sweet layouts and awesome to look at.
On the way home we saw this fire truck and I had to take a picture of it, how cool is that thing?
Today I decided to detail my wife’s Escape, it took a large chunk of the day to do and I couldn’t get the crap off of the wheels so I need to buy some good chrome cleaner. The unfortunate part of it is the wheels are plastic/chrome so not as easy to clean as real chrome. It turned out pretty well though I think and the wife is happy.
Have a great week everybody!
