New Guy to this Forum stuff… with 2020 Navion

Hi All !
Bought this 2020 Navion with 7000 or so miles on it, because the 84 yearyoung owner was Covid shutdown from taking his gal to Alaska. So he ordered up a baddass Porsche, heard of deal from friend, was on a plane next day to Jackson WY. Way enjoyed the September trip home to PNW. Now, at 16,500 miles, Mrs. and I are having fun rolling off to bluegrass festivals and more ! Were boat folks for decades but ‘swallowed The Anchor’ and took to rubber tires a’ rolling up the pike ( :
Since buying this, I’ve :
Replaced not one, but two step motors
New NAPA lead acid house batts ( suck, going the AGM way soon, I think )
Added Sumo Spring Bump Stops, fat Rear Hellwig sway bar, rear Konis. A great improvement, added all at same time so not sure which helped most but really a noticeable good thing, wayyy easier to drive. Still looking to raise rear end two inches tho. Not sure to go with adding blocks under springs or a helper add, definitely NOT going with airbags, ‘been that, done there’ with another RV.
Last trip out, had a scare when we returned home, a dead-flat RR outer
( fortunately dually ) tire. I’d put up a pic of what the road hazard item was that was embedded within, if I could figure out just how to do that …. Crazy item, tire store people had never seen the likes ! So, TPSs will be soon. Also, not pleased with Continentals dry cracking between the treads already, so I’m going Michelin next.
Well, that’s my/our story thus far.

Difference in a boat and an RV?
The boat is a hole in the water where you put your wallet and the RV is a hole in the wallet where you put your water!

Cracks in tires that new? Might want to check the dates on them in case somebody did a switch? Most of us will go with replacing after six years as mileage on Rv is not the main problem.
And blowouts on RV are much bigger issues! TPMS definite!
Why no RV year, make and floorplan on MY signature as we suggest for others?
I currently DO NOT have one!
