Hi, i am a new member here as of today. great job on your decorating and tiling...the wife wants me to do the same thing now...thanks a lot... :-))

I have the 30 ft motorhome fleetwood that is leaking like a seive recently. I will need to remove some of the cupboards to fix the leaks i figure so does anyone have a manual or link to a manual for this model "m" machine or tips on how to find and fix these damaging leaks.
thanks

You won't find any kind of manual for the interior construction, but you can email Fleetwood and they will send you (simplified and not terribly useful) plumbing and wiring diagrams.

We have those for our '89 Southwind 33L, as well as shop manuals for the P30/32 chassis, plus some sales literature and a nifty VHS tape on the glories of the 1989 Southwind line, all found on Ebay.

Mostly though, you'll learn by doing. If you don't feel capable of doing most of the work yourself (maybe not necessarily on the engine and tranny, but on the coach systems anyway) you'll end up investing WAYYY more than your coach is worth. RV techs are pricey.

Go back to your leaky roof thread with more information and the posters here will guide you through the fix-the-roof process.

OK -- I totally changed projects over the weekend.
Instead of doing the ceiling, I did the floor.

Here are some before pics...and after...

It was a busy long weekend.

I also took down my sun-faded front curtains and dyed them a nice beige color.
And I took apart my sofa and dyed it beige too. It used to be a blue/silver pattern.
Now its a blue/beige pattern. Looks pretty good. You can see my puppy lying on it in those pictures above!

After all that, I got started on my exterior projects. It already got a scrubbing, which made it look like a different RV! This weekend I repainted my stripes.

I used the Brightside Interlux Marine paint. WOW do I have SHINY stripes now! Unfortunately I don't have any "after" pictures yet.

Here are the before pics:

My new dinette cushions should arrive this week -- beige leather.
Plus the extra fabric to do some of the trim around the dinette.

I have new lampshades. I'll get some pictures of those.

And today, my vinyl dye arrived. I am going to redo the dashboard and drivers door area. Its sun-faded.

Heidi, great work on the F/Wood! My Bounder's interior is in dire need of 'upgrades' as well - the dinette cushions have cigarette burn holes, the curtains are dusty and rusty, and the carpeting..well, don't even get me started on the carpeting. The P/O -1 (the guy who sold it to the guy I bought it from) lived in it Full time down in Florida for about 15 or so years. He was, to put it mildly, not terribly conscientious about housekeeping. As time and budget permits, we're replacing the upholstery and carpeting, and perhaps doing some painting. I like the idea of the countertop paint from Rustoleum.

Keep up the good work!

I'm a newbie and wanted to tell u how inspired I am by ur remodel. Great job! I have a couple of questions though...
How did you apply your tiles? Over wall paper with a glue then grout???
Also your flooring was there a lot of cutting involved and is it lock and fit?
And last but not least where did you order your new dinette cushions from? I need new cushions and was going to just try and recover but maybe the cost is better just to order?... I have an 88 gulf stream sunsport which is rosie pink inside too!
Thanks and keep those pics coming please! We love them.

I added one before picture so you can see how far it's come.
The new cushions were simple! I just stuffed in the old cushions and zipped em up! The trim work was a little more work - but not hard with a staple gun.
I got them from rvandvansurplus.com.

I've also repainted my old exterior stripes, but haven't finished the red max coats.

Not very good pictures. One is "before" with the pink stripes and faded blue stripes.
I repainted with marine paint. Unfortunately the "after" is from a distance.

Anyone have a source for southwind decals?

Heidi, we had ours redone by an ebay seller, but I think any vinyl sign guy could do it.

We just took a digital picture of the logo, sent him the pix and the measurements and it came back in a bout a week. I believe it cost around $30 for all 3.

Easy to apply and they look perfect.

Old logo in icky beige



New one in metallic silver

If you are going to do the graphics yourself I would use watered down windex and spray the area with it before the vinyl goes down, this will give you time to move it around and make it easier to remove the bubbles.
