A few More Photos of the top and obvious leaks.

Lots of cracks down both sides. Temp fix for now, Spring will see me pulling these completely off and fiber glassing both sides inside and out.

Vent lids have been replaced. This morning I'll seal up all the cracks and drag a water hose up top. Fingers crossed!

To dark for photos but the roof is sealed. At least I hope so. Rain forecast for tonight. So we'll see. Tomorrow should bring thunderstorms and I'd rather have them now before the interior is finished. Time change shorted me of an hour of daylight. Still all is well. I'm sitting out in the PA and relaxing. DW is inside on her computer playing farmville so that keeps her out of my hair but she sure is ready to move into here ASAP.

I picked up some paneling on sale for 10 bucks a sheet. Much cheaper then luan and same size. I'll be putting the overhead ceiling and cabinet back together today and get the front finished. Also a FYI I had small leaks at the kitchen sink faucet and its a "Streamway" Brand. I purchased rebuild kits for less then 2 bucks a peice for Price Plister brand part number 0-2001 Lasco MF Valves are all brass so it was a no brainer to rebuild vrs replace.

Started on ceiling this afternoon after work. With any luck I'll finish ceiling and floors by this weekend. DW wants to get in and start cleaning asap and there just isn't enough time in the day. More photos tomorrow!

I finished removing the paneling from the wall that needs to be replaced. I don't know what glue they used back in 79 but it was still well glued. Any ideas to glue the new paneling on with? I've nearly finished removing the ceiling paneling as well. It was a major mess but will look so much better by the end of this week. Also about a 4x8 ft section of floor has been pulled up. Photos coming tomorrow after the cleanup both prior to and after installation of paneling and flooring.

You could use either liquid nails get the outdoor rated do to the temps an RV goes through. You could get bold and use contact cement but you have to be perfect on placement its a one shot deal. The last ime I did paneling I used liquid nails regular and some of the faster setting kind to get a bond started to hold until the regular setup. I'm thinking it was a 10 minute setup for starting bond.

By the way AWESOME job looks like you are doing it right. Better spend the time now and do it right then have to rip it out later to do it again. Tell DW good work takes time but you won't have to EVER do it again.

Well I complete ceiling and wall panel removal and most of the rotten floor. After removing carpet the floor wasn't near as bad and thats one less sheet of 1/2 inch plywood. Tomorrow we start putting things back together. Here are some photos.

Hi,

I have a 1986, that I'm working on, can you tell me if there is a special fuse, or reset button to get the blower to come on so I can try the furnace?
