Hi.
Ron has great ideas for you. Here are a couple more.
Your AC's require a "boost" of amps to start them. If your total starting amps even slightly exceed your allotted breaker amps pop goes...

Re: 2007, tourmaster/overheating

Re: Which engine/oil filter?

Weighing in on this issue may be somewhat dangerous, but here I go again.

Oil is not oil. You need a certain level of protection, lubrication, and specificity for diesel engines.

Oh, to explain why I would put them over the damaged wood. There is no easy way to remove the wood. You would have to remove the slide (IMHO) in order to cut away or otherwise replace the wood.

Is there a system that receives both satellite TV and internet?
