    Battery replacement not going so good.

    Light switches are reversed

    I believe that outer cover un-snaps and exposes the plate that is screwed in. I would try it by hand first. Can you access the back it? Pull a drawer out etc?

    Patrick, post a photo of the switches in question.

    Puff, was it bound up or do you have a motor on its leg?

    New to forums.

    I had to google the Shaper Origin to see what it is. That is one neat wood working tool! Wood working and Metal fabrication are two (besides camping) of my favorite hobbies.

    Bill, I have always wanted to see a rodeo. This one is probably 1.5 hours from home, we pass it every time we head to the New Jersey beaches;http://www.cowtownrodeo.com/ My late grandfather was a Brahma Bull rider when he was younger, always wanted to watch and see what that must have been like. He limped with a cane until the day he died .

    Firestone FS561

    Tires have come a long way!! I love those BFG tires, so far they have proven to be a good choice. Hopefully Tireman will see this and chime in, he would be the right guy to bounce your questions off of.

    Well.....my speedometer is 4 mph off from my actual speed. My coach was built with a tire that was a 499 and now is a 486.

    Firestone FS561

    We were supposed to have a 295/80R22.5 (factory size), when we bought it it had new tires what were an incorrect load range, those were a 295/75R22.5. Once I saw the error they replaced the steer tires only (only axle that was actually overloaded). I went with the 12R22.5 because of its availability on the road should I need a replacement tire. The 315 was a consideration back then, what turned me off at the time was the weight of the tire was enough to impact MPG's and I was concerned with my wheel offset the tires might "kiss" while in operation. When we put the 12R's on I also replaced the rear inner duals with aluminum wheels to lighten up the rotational mass.

    New rear view camera

    Sounds like you are headed down the right path. Check with RV cams and find out what our options are. Our last coach I removed the dash mounted CRT monitor and replaced it with an LCD the mounted inside the drivers side sun visor. Probably not a good fit for a class A but just an example of how creative you can get with monitor placement.

    Richard, the FS561 is a good tire. Our coach has the 12R22.5's on it now and I bought these; https://simpletire.com/bfgoodrich-12-r22.5-63223-tires They ride great, no complaints so far and they have 25,000 miles on them and they are just shy of 2 years old. The 12R22.5 should be readily available should you need a replacement, that is a very common over the road truck tire size.

    Best New ATS (Automatic Transfer Switch)

    Think I am going with this one. Mostly for its quality and availability. Anyone currently running this ATS or have any experience with it or the Manufacture? https://www.progressivedyn.com/rv/automatic-transfer-switches/pd52-240-vac-50-amp-automatic-transfer-switch/
