I didn't get to update last night due to a injury which I could have avoided if I'd taken the time to remove a broken screw from the frame above my head where I'd been working. Always remember to pay attention and NOT get in a hurry. Well here are photos from yesterday. Not in any particular order but they show progress!

I spliced in new wood to the bows using weldwood glue and screws. I could have made all new bows but felt no need to waste any materials that would have cost more then I have to spend at this time. I "C" clamped the bows into place while glue dried and they were then screwed into the frame as before but with stainless screws which I had on hand.

More work planned for later today after I cash my paycheck. For some reason DW wants to buy groceries for Thanksgiving so not much will be spent for the MH. Enough to finish up the front end and we will then move in sometime over the weekend I'm hoping but at least by the first of next week.

Tonight's installment.

Paycheck won't be here for a few more days so that slowed down some of the work I'd wanted to get done over the weekend however DW and I spent nearly all day working on it. She worked on her shelves for the pantry that is custom made. Photos of it when finished! I decided to work up front in the cab area. I started by closing off the front fiberglass cap to coach area. This area leaked heavily and needed completely new wood. Here are some photos. Sorry for the quality.

The Ceiling is finished!

I didn't get all the pics taken as it got dark quick. But here are a few including my DW's pantry.

Well it rained overnight and I found two tiny leaks. During a pause in the rain I got up on the roof and wiped it dry. Then using my DW's hair dryer I warmed the metal up and put some sealant on it. Just had another small shower come through and seems to have stopped the leak. But in case we get a hard shower later on which is forecast does anyone know of a quick easy fix short of covering the roof with a tarp which I do not have access to one at this time. Anything easy to spray on a wet metal roof etc? Thanks

When you can swing it, I'd suggest Black Jack Roof Gard 700. I put some down about 6 years ago, 2 coats thick. I just got up there to replace my vent covers and cover up the AC unit for the season, and am amazed how that stuff has held up. It didn't crack when I stepped on it, and when I had applied it, I slurried it right up to the hinge of the vent covers. I had to cut it away with a knife, since it was still so flexible it wouldn't break off.
You may have to wait til warmer days to put it on, but it's worth every penny and minute invested, in my opinion. Oh, and it washes off nice, too- Especially considering I park it under a mulberry tree!

Thanksgiving Update.

After a big Thanksgiving meal I usually take a nap but instead decided to tackle the floor and ceiling in the bathroom. Here are a few photos. I also the other day fired off the generator which runs absolutely perfect!

Heavy Rain tonight! Leaking Again!

Two more leaks. I've put a tarp over it best I can for this evening. Cold windy and dry tomorrow so I'll remove the tarp and remove the front AC. I'm pretty certain gasket is shot. Water could only be entering from that point as everything else is completely sealed and I'm certain there is no other areas it could leak from. There were some minor cracks from corrosion I'd found when I wire brushed the entire roof and I've sealed those well. While walking on the roof tonight when I discovered the leaks inside the water was pooled up on the left side of the AC pretty good. It had run off everywhere else. Its not obvious during the day or when its dry that water pools there but with a flash light there is no missing it. I don't have a replacement gasket on hand and I'll try to pick one up tomorrow.

While you are replacing the gasket, why don't you build a 3/4inch riser all the way around the AC hole. That is what the quality units have. Then you don't have to rely on the gasket so much.

What do you make the riser out of? So it will not rot?
