I think every project sucks us into the "while I'm at it" vortex and, at least in my case, ends up costing three times my estimate in both time and money. Just ask my wife...

Are you on track for time, expenditures and features?

Are you installing LED lights. Without increasing battery capacity LED would be very beneficial.

Interior lights are being switched over to led. Exterior clearance lights might. I dont drive at night so P am having a hard time switching to led's which will see no use. Brake/stop/tail lights are changed to led.

Time wise I think I am doing fine. Biggest thing is the "you might as well when your here" issues. The plywood that goes under the couch and fridge on the passenger side needed changing because of a few soft spots. It took more time doing that than I expected. The drivers side is next and I think it will be worse for time.

I have added some extra lighting and outlets. Pricing all new exterior fixtures as well. My corner edge trim I am taking into the city next week to get a quote on powdercoating versus replacing with new. Most of the retailers so far that sell the trim want you to buy a box of multiple pieces instead of just what is needed

My friend has a custom vinyl shop and is already working on some graphics for me as well

Today I had my wife helping me so I decided to remove the old roofing membrane. Parts are still glued down well others are not. We peeled up about a foot starting at the rear and then screwed it to a 2X4. As my wife rolled it onto the wood I used a knife to cut it away from areas where it was glued. Hole roof off in about 30 minutes. I will get some underlay and glue it down after cleaning up the old wood. Then a new roof. Perfect time to replace the aging roof vents and upgrade to a HD antenna, Also going to pick up a new ac cover, plumbing vent caps and fridge vent.

Wanted to start sealing doors and windows today. Removed the protective film for the first time. Not sure if the picture shows it or not but boy is it shiny!

Since we are replacing all the exterior siding one of the things on my research list was to find out how to replace the Federal ID sticker that has serial number and camper information. I contacted Starcraft and they are issuing me a new one and putting it in the mail. Talk about good customer service.

Lots of snow coming down here for the last few days. Keeping busy by attaching the front nose piece we made a month back and redoing all the propane lines.

Waiting on delivery of more panels so I can do the left side.

Enjoy
