Talking First Repairs..... Done

AS we are putting things into the RV today to get it Ready for its Shake down Run we find that the drawer that the dealer fixed was falling apart.

So I spent some time and got the Drawer repaired with new Slides and all, while doing that I found the Heater under the Stove. While I was und the floor with the Drawer, I found the inverter

While I was hard at work the better half comes out to join me, and shuts only the Screen door. One of our GSD's jumps right Through. There is a Reason we do not have any screen doors in our house, not sure why anybody would think that would change with the RV
So, Off i go to home depot to get the items to repair the screen....... Fixed,,,,

Good times are sure to follow........

Aren't GSD just so much fun!? LOL Got 2 of them and just waiting to see them take out the screen too.

As to repairs...other than replacing a motor battery already (less than 2 weeks after purchase) haven't had to fix anything YET...but I have a dash radio just waiting to be replaced and then there are the TVs, maybe the carpet...Maybe...awe damn...I need winter to get here so I have time to do them 'cause I REALLY want to get it out on the road.

GOOD LUCK!

Actually the whole top of the engine dome ripped in half all the way around the hatch. I think I have to take the whole dome off and take it to a fiberglass guy to fix.
