Great tip
    Especially for owners of new rigs. I have an 2008 and the previous owner went and spent a small fortune on the stabilizers an shocks           ( thank you very much haha)...drives like a charm,,,, hopefully new owners will see your suggestion and go that route first,, will save some them some money.   a star for you

GOOD NEWS     BAD NEWS
   Went and exercised the genie this morning.  took a screw driver,  off came the hex nut no problem, three bolts holding the hinge bracket,  I used a 6mm nut to take it off...   messed around the with  the hinge,  METAL what the heck?????  lol,,,, I just know based upon all the other messages would be plastic..  bolted it back in, put the door back on and I'm done,  good news for me,  Bad news I 'm not doing anything else  haha... sorry.

Do not know if you read the roof project I did. It's in tips. I have used the RV ladder, however  I would recommend not using the ladder unless  it's an emergency. your out camping.  Using an extension ladder seems more prudent and lessens the stress on the RV ladder.  When I did this project many of the guys commented on doing the same in regards to getting up and down on their roof.  Maybe it depends upon your weight haha... I weigh 210 and can feel the stress on the RV ladder when I do use it. Also some of the guys talked about like I did getting on the roof and doing a belly flop to really get the front end cap cleaned and waxed.  Like you I have a extender pole that I use when I'm traveling or just want to do a quick clean up.

would love to have some scaffolding but How can you reach the top and middle of the front cap,, I don't see much difference in using a ladder except your very sturdy

very good still laughing,,,,  I was on a monthly schedule to exercise the genie, roll the tires. now I'm going about every two weeks at least roll the tires, check on things,  usually just sit around read a book while the genies running,,, now I have about six things to do and check on... the never ending toils of RV Man,hahah.... yeah it's a pain, a pleasant one because most of the time it's fun,,,, but all that work and little things lead to very enjoyable road trips and not having problems     redoing the checklist now and updating the TO DO LIST.. which never ends

   I'm jealous,, sitting on my porch 530pm 99.9 degrees it's hot, but shady haha.....  with the Scan Gauge I'm assuming you can monitor the mpg very easily,,, meaning if you only inflate to 75psi you can see the difference.   I have to get one of those.... when your doing it by tank it is ather difficult...     and your probably right  age will get your tires before  mileage... have a good trip,,, waiting for October

   tks for site, I just bookmarked it for later use.   Next time I go out to exercise the genie, I 'm going to take the door off and the hinge, I got a lady across the street who does metal working,,, going to see if we can figure out a fix without ordering a kit... if we can will repost.. if not I'm going to buy a kit and replace,,, just not going to take a chance if can not figure a fix will order a kit for fall project prior to taking trip.

   good point,,, however,,hehe,,, I keep the door open when not in use,,, try to remember to close them when I drive but like all plans I forget,,,until I hear them banging around, which I'm sure is real good for that hinge,,, I have a cord with a flag that I hang for the antenna up/down   I guess I need one for the frige doors

Bob  very good point haha  I guess, don't know weather to laugh or cry,,,   anyway,,, Camping World also sells the fix up kits I believe For some reason 26bucks sticks in my head.  WE need a RV lawyer friendly to our community to bring a class action and bring a suit to replace all those hinges    I'm sorry I brought up this Sore subject but when I saw this tip wanted to put it with the thread. 

     When I had the Beast here for Summer Projects I looked at my hinge,, I could not tell it plastic,,, so I left it alone,  maybe when I go over to exercise the genie I just might take the door off and bring it home.... I'm going to do something with it.. reinforce replace or something,,, I just do not want to be out on the road and have it break...
