We got it in yesterday Steve and Sal! We had to replace the sink cause it was plastic and wouldn't hold water. Leaking out under the cabinets onto the floor yikes!! But thankfully the new aluminum one is in! So ready to hit the road!

Yes he did put some pieces underneath to make it tighten down tighter but the real help was he used liquid nail around the perimeter before tightening it down and that really seemed to make it draw in tighter and not leave any gaps. I think it looks great!!

Sometimes the least amount of work turns out for the best.

Very true! I have a problem wanting to do things the hard way sometime lol! We buy houses and fix them up to rent so I have a hard time separating the two project I suppose. I have to remind myself this is not a rental property that we need to fix up perfectly this is a CAMPER that we are suppose to be having fun in lol! Thanks for the reminder :-)

Well we finally made our "maiden voyage" to Dog Creek Campground on Nolin River Lake, KY. it was beautiful there and we had a wonderful trip! Everything was smooth sailing on our camper except the converter still isn't functioning but with shore power we were good to go! We also realized that we miscalculated the height of our septic tote in comparison to the drainage outlet and it was impossible to use it as it would have to travel uphill! But we made do with the public showers/toilets and enjoyed ourselves anyway! Already planning our second trip.
