Our windshield was cracked and we had it replaced at no cost to us because insurance paid.
We replaced our lead acid batteries with lithium batteries. We replaced our step motor and our side door locking mechanism (for the second time). We had our black and grey tanks cleaned so our gauges would read accurately (beware the hard waters of the west). The black tank is still squirrelly on occasion.
