Well, we've corrected the wiring in the stove hood, replaced anode and drain plug in hot water heater as well as flushed it. We have fixed the sticky fan switch on the heater. Now to put that bad boy back in!!! Next on the agenda...coating the roof and addressing the shower wall. It bulges where there is a leak. Also checking the wiring on the ceiling vents. They don't work. Shall I continue?

Due to rain the roof has had to be put on hold, though we did have a day to remove the various vents, clean them up, and reseal them. The shower has been redone and the ceiling vent fans now work. Previous owner didn't apparently know what he was doing when it came to wiring. We have put a new water intake door for the water tank on. Boy does that look better! My husband replaced the valve cover seals. No more oil leak! We are pretty much down to cosmetics and comfort now. I will be reupholstering the cushions and making new insulated curtains. Also are debating pulling up the carpeting and installing laminate flooring. Have read some posts about that and I think we can do it with minimal trouble. Sure would be easier to keep clean!!!! Looking forward to finally getting out there to camp.

Do you have any photos? We would love to see your progress. Besides all the praise you would get: how beautiful it looks, etc. will give you renewed energy to finish!

No photos. Why didn't I think of that? I'll snap some today after I've put all the tools away that we have spread all over every flat surface!

Howdy:

Do you have an aluminum of rubber roof? We used eternabond tape to fix up our 85 prowler and it worked swell.

Aluminum. We recently put on Liquid Rubber Roof coating and it has been working great, despite all the rain we've had over the last couple months. We also put butyl rubber under the trim running down the sides of the roof after we had cleaned and prepped the surfaces. No more leaks!

Now have the liquid roof installed, half the upholstery is done, but I am a bit intimidated by the size of the couch/bed in the back. Don't have much sewing room space to work on that. New blinds are in, but curtains need to be ordered. We have also taken an inaugural trip to check it all, and it works like a dream! We also have new foam ordered. Still working on those tiny holes in the skin. Haven't had the time to devote to it. It'll come with time.
