It's looking good..... I assume you plan to be ready for fall fishing season. As a thought for your inside work, I have subscribed to the "less is best" theory for on the inside with good results - less permanently mounted stuff = more room. I had a small (Coleman TAOS) pop-up with stove, sink, refrig. I yanked out these items, the associated counters/frames, and the propane tank, then made the space into an extended seating area/extra bed with storage underneath 4 hours work. I then used a Coleman portable stove and cooler (that I placed outside under the pop-up when camping). It was amazing how much room that added plus made the pack up and go process much easier, no more propane tank, etc. Weight went from 1200 lbs. to just under 1,000 lbs. Now I want to yank stuff out of the Class A (couch/bench table) and put in laminate floor and fold up chairs/table, but the DW pitched a fit so Im waiting a bit to keep the peace but it will happen :>). For me, free space is a premium - I like more open space and to just pack what I need for a trip.

Another HOT day with a few showers which made it even HOTTER! I been hanging some pannel which in fact it just Luan plywood that has a great grain finish. My plans are to put a lite stain and then varinish it after. I just couldn't find any panneling that I like. Next best thing is to do your own.

Anyway with the roof sealed up and some showers to show I have no leaks, onward to the inside. I had ripped out the old counter top and cabints and rebuilt them both. A bit of a job, but its not like I have to go to work anytime soon. Well the countertop is finish along with the cabints and some of the walls are hung. I should finish hang the Luan in a couple days due to it being so hot.

A couple pictures!

Oh, I am having a bit of a problem. I been trying to remove the heater. Its a Hydro Flame. Is there a trick to remove it? There has to be some reason the exhaust tube that is on the outside is not coming loose. All inside screws are removed and I can move it around, but I'm unable to remover the exhaust tube.

Any tricks to this?

This was a couple years ago - but as I recall the one I took apart was a sandwich fit. There were two holes (air supply and exaust vent). The outside 'trim' piece had a short pipe and a long pipe. The inside piece had a short and long pipe. So each short pipe fit into a long pipe. A little corrosion made it tough to get apart - I might have used penetrating oil (but then it would be flamable if you can't get it apart). As I recall, the outside trim piece had about 8 sheet metal screws and that was all that held the sandwich together. Like I said - that was a couple years back.

Hate to burst your bubble but Dicor is a jobber/reseller of most of the materials used in RV roofs. They manufacture very little if anything at all.

Thanks Tom. That is what I see on installing it. I did put some penatration oil. I really need to get it apart.

I stand correct on Dicor, no biggie. Still, a good product and very easy to work with.

Today, I'm going to have to take it easy. Yesterday took a lot out of me from the heat to were at the point I'm not feeling all that great. As my doctor told me, lisen to what my body tells me.

I did get a little more work done today before I had to go to the doctors. I did finish the countertop and install the stove back. I'm still a bit under the weather, but I still go at it. I start my day around 3:00-3:30 am every day and hit the sack around 9:30pm. I been hitting to road early for my morning walk at around 4:15 am. I'm just one that doesn't sleep much. Guess working shift hours for well over 35 years took its toll on me.

At-a-boy. It's looking good. You are getting a lot more done than I am, but at 3AM I still have 3 more hours of sleep scheduled :>)

I worked third shift only 5 1/2 years before I got fed up with the managerial bovine buscuits and retired for keeps. A little over 2 1/2 years later, I still suffer from "shift lag."

Btw, nice work!

If I could turn back time, I would of never took the job I had working shift hours. Back then, I was fresh out of the Marines, when to back to school and had a baby on the way. One has to do what one has to do to make ends meet!

I just finished my morning walk. A bit over 2 miles. Now I'm waiting for sun rise. I have a full plate today to do. From cutting the yard (3 hour job)to climbing on the tractor to bushhog the back 40 so to speak. I was hoping my son would come in do that for me, but he has to work thru the weekend.

But first, I will get some work done on the camper!

Oh, everything did check out at the doctors. He told me to slow down. RIGHT! There is time for that in the grave! Of course I lisen to my body as I was told and I do carry my nitro and cell phone if I need it. If something did go wrong, this CRT-D (my "new" buddy which I call my pacemaker/defib) will shock the hell out of me to keep me alive. So I was told.

My youngest is attending the 13 week summer camp offered by Uncle Sam at Paris Island. He is in that first 4 week torture session now. I assume this summer camp comes complete with one of those jar head haircuts:>) As always - keep up the good work and don't push the old ticker too hard. One day at a time and I'll be following your progress. I should apply "Liquid Roof" this fall myself as a precautionary measure. Your post is giving me some motivation toward doing it when things cool down.

Tom, tell your son to hang in there. A lot of mine games along with all kinds of PE.

Back to the camper and work at hand. Its been Hot, but I did get a break today. I didn't have to change cloths 3 times a day that I been doing due to a cool front. At 6am, it was 75F were it had been above 80F every morning.

Well, I been a bit busy working inside. I'm finish the cabints as far as everything but the doors. I was just going to cover the old ones, but instead I builted new ones. I also have all the "new" walls installed, but I still haved the front to do that I will jump on tomorrow in the morning went its still cool. I still have to hang the cabints over the stove and sink.

Once I'm finish these few things, I will have a bit sanding and a bunch of painting. Then redoing the floor for last!

The wife wants her carport back yesterday or was that 3 weeks ago?

Got a couple pictures for ya'll.
