The Shasta Lives

Im pretty happy about my $300.00 find.
Ive been checking out the systems and cleaning my way to the Bathroom ceiling job. electrical system works great, Propane appliances work .
now I just have to test the plumbing but I am having a little trouble connecting the water. does anybody know on a 1974 Shasta XL2200 where the city water connection is I see the tank fill, the Tank Drain and what appears to be either a water heater drain or maybe the city water inlet going in thru the floor to the water heater area..any suggestions ? But the Camper is overall in Great shape. only water damage seems to be confined to the ceiling directly around the roof Vent above the Tub/shower. cant wait to get the tires changed , ceiling fixed and Ill be campground bound..

Here is where you can find Before and After Pics http://www.flickr.com/photos/74shasta/ I just got this to my house on Saturday 4-2-2011 so the changes have all been made so far in just a few days with a total so far of :

Camper 300.00
Roof Tape 13.75
2 Cans of Rustoleum White 10.00
1 Can Primer 5.00



we are keeping track of what we put on or in the Camper so I can get an Idea of the total cost to make it right again...

Add $15.00 plumbing supplies for the city water connection repair, back to Home Depot after work today for some more supplies to fix the broken copper lines I found after connecting the water. But I'm still smiling... Easy access where the breaks are and they really are not that bad. Can anyone tell me if a blockage in the air intake would make the furnace blow soot out the exhaust ?
