Upgrades before heading to the Southwest for the winter.
It isn't worth the worry to be heading off on a long trip with sad tires!
Arriving today should be 2 of these Exide Edge FP-AGM24DP Flat Plate AGM Sealed Marine Batteries. They are more expensive then the stock batteries but they are sealed which means no checking their water levels. Their capacity is about 20% more than the stock batteries and they are supposed to hold up to many more charge cycles as well.
I found this Brentwood Home 9-Inch Gel HD Memory Foam RV Short Queen Mattress and it feels much ,much more comfortable. It isn't a perfect fit as the two corners aren't rounded like the Airstream Mattress but it is close enough,
They look a little wonky because I made them and they were too tall so I un-bent them and re-bent them a better size. Both leveling boards fit perfectly and actually they are easier to get in and out.
This saves a bunch of space in the bed because they ride over the wheel well instead of next to it.
