If you notice, that's all you see in the photo above it. Replaced all the plumbing front to back ,except the inlet and outlet to the hot water heater, cold water drain and city water hook up with PEX and shark bite fittings.
Some people are leary of the fittings, but I'm in industrial maintenance, and we use a very similar fitting on air and water at work with almost never a failure,unless it's around one of the pancake ovens.(Hi heat).

I would like to use something very similar and want to know any tips out there on installing floor when a slide out is involved?

Who ever thought it was good to put carpet in a motorhome in the first place?

Flooring

The flooring is Allure Ultra. It's actually a commercial grade vinyl; snap lock flooring that really does look like wood. Has a 10 year commercial warrantee, and a lifetime residential. The crosscuts were done with a guillotine cutter, and the rips with a table saw. Very easy product to work with. 60 bucks per 20 sq.ft at Home Depot.Right at 100 sq.ft in our Vogue, but well worth the money.

Got a new camera and can now post some proper pictures. This MH has everything still original, even blinds and curtains. I did add seat covers but the oringinal were still untorn and unspotted, just dusty.

Rodney,

Just came across your winnebego chieftian. I just bought one like it. It's been stored indoors and has been cared for. 39K all original except the fridge. I'll get it in a few days so I can detail it and move our stuff in. Love to hear about yours. I'm new to rving. thanks for your time. Mine does not have the power step or auto leveling.

Preventive maintenance

A few things to consider right away. Coat you roof with the proper sealant for the type of roof you have. Check all roof vents to see if they need to be recaulked. If your tires are old replace. Cheaper to replace tires than dammage from a blowout. Post pictures when you can and have fun detailing and cleaning.

'79 Champion Grand Slam

For your viewing pleasure.

Picked this up last year for $1500. Needed some roof, cosmetic work and a couple of minor mechanical items but all in all a great buy. 360 auto, 46,000 original miles. Replaced the interior ceiling and "re-papered" a couple of walls. Gotta love contact paper. Bought some new curtains to spruce it up a little. Other than that it's all original. Ran it around quite a bit last year on short trips. You'll notice an "Orange" theme in some of the pillows, etc. The darn thing has burnt orange carpet throughout it and I wasn't about to go through the fun of removing and replacing it. Instead, we decided to take it to the max as kind of a joke. Ended up kinda liking it!

I like to call this shot "Kissin' Cousins." It's of the Grand Slam and our '77 Jamboree.
