Constant Rework

For some reason, I seem to get in deeper than I plan when I go to replace something on my old coach. A month ago I started out replacing the tub/shower faucet. I found a better than the OEM one but, the divertor went out the back into the wall, so I ended up running pex up the wall and and out to a new shower setup. I then replaced the cheap dark paneling outside the bathroom in the hallway with a lighter type of wall board. I then decide to tear up the rug in the hallway and replace it with the same ceramic tile that I used in the bath. Well I think I am done with projects other than finish painting the bottom of the motorhome, then we can go camping.

Every plumbing job I do turns into a Royal Pain so I sympathize with you.

Nice looking job though.

That is especially true if you buy a replacement shower faucet with the shower diverter in the WRONG PLACE.

Deano56, based on my lengthy experience with RV's I can tell you that "it's always something". I can't tell you the number of times that I started what I thought was a fairly simple project or repair and then it grew tentacles and turned into a bigger project. Sometimes I'm almost afraid to tackle a small repair because I know what might lie ahead but I seem to always suck it up and dive in. Your work in the pics look nice!

A general rule of thumb is whatever you do, it will cost twice as much and take three times longer than you think it should.

JPEG files contain metadata that (among other things) tell a computer what the orientation is supposed to be. Unfortunately that information isn't handled the same everywhere. Here's how to fix it:

Fix EXIF to make rotated photos look correct - All
