Thanks! I can't wait to get more parts and get some other things done. I've got to get that sky light replaced and I think I'll replace the access panel for the fridge, it looks a little yellow. I wonder if there are new sticker kits for it?

Just a little update. I haven't gotten anthing new for the trailer lately other than buying a new pressure regulator. On the plus side, however, I've got some 'action' shots. Headed to the site tonight, right after work.

I can do that! It's nothing special compared to the new ones but was pretty nice back in the day! Every thing is like new for the most part, with very little use. The oven has only been used a half dozen times at the most.

We had to give in the other day and buy a water pump, after 13 years it finally gave out. One more thing off of the rehab list.....

I noticed some green stuff on the outside walls of the trailer. We get that same stuff on our composite deck and instead of pressure washing, we use a product called Wet and Forget. The stuff works GREAT!!

That's a nice older TT. Very nice. It just needs some "decorations" such as a few pictures on the walls, a colorful throw rug or two, a pretty couch quilt and maybe a colorful toss pillow on the sofa. Or if you prefer the subdued look, leave it as it is.

Had to get a new porch light yesterday. The origianal bulb burned out after only 12 years of service, they just don't make stuff to last any more. Went out and bought a whole new fixture, the old one was getting yellow and nasty looking any ways.

Looks like you found a nice solid TT to revive. Looks like a lot of fun and you are doing a great job. Being a little older, my wife and I decided we had to buy new, but I still am looking for an older MH of some type to tackle in my spare time.

A few 'action shots' from our weekend at Fort Custer.


Also thought to dig out some old Christmas lights for the awning.

Curios to know what you used to clean all the black staining off of it. My son just bought a 98 Skyline Layton and the exterior is pretty dirty. It is that type of dirt that requires more than just a washing. What has everyone else used? When I cleaned our MH I used Bar Keepers Cleanser but I fear it may be to abrasive on his TT.

Been awhile since I updated the thread so here it goes.

No more camping for the year, getting rather cold up this way and with the holidays I decided to start winterizing the camper. Charged the battery and unhooked, filled the traps up with antifreeze and all that fun stuff. While I was doing this I found that my regulator is leaking around the level indicator. Looks like a new regulator for me.....yah.

Found a few water leaks though. I think I'm going to have to get all the windows caulked this week and I found that my antenna is leaking some how. Not sure how that works and what to do about it but I'm going to have to dig into it now. Might just tarp every thing and look at it in the spring. Might just have to switch all the clearance lights over to led and then caulk. Lots to do for this next season.

Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving! Happy Holidays to all!
