Thanks for the welcome guys.
Gordon, No tarps , it's my only transportation,so....
Harley, small sections,,,I'm trying to imagine that.
I think you're much closer to finishing than you realize.
It's going to go a lot faster now.
I also took advantage of the warm , sunny weather today and went topside looking for holes with a can of Pro Flex and I might have actually found a couple.Also tightened a fan belt,all hose clamps and the y-pipe to exh manifold studs. Not a bad day !!
Yeah , I'll start my own thread when I actually get started with the demo.

Wow Popeye, a can of spinach would be a help when trying to drive and work on it! Some planning and determination will see you through. Anticipating your thread.

DW and I renovated the house. She was cooking with an electric fry pan and a toaster oven for almost a month. Now it would be an induction burner rather than the electric fry pan. Needless to say she was really pleased when the kitchen was complete.

Terry - must feel good to get back at it after the Christmas break. Break is always good to get the enthusiasm back up.

Will you be posting pictures of the mock up or has that step been completed?

Good Evening, Gordon, DW's father used to buy houses from tax sales and remodel them, she helped, thats where she got good at what she does, (and why she has so much patience) our house is always in a state of remodel, I started to redo the one car attached garage into another room, its one of those projects that always seem to get put on the back burner, now, its not a garage AND its not a room, kinda stuck in the middle. I kinda mocked up the TH but I have to do it again, when I do I'll take some pics. I stopped up to the local trailer sales and picked up some more butyl tape, so I'll be installing some windows and the water inlet door, as long as the weather holds out. Frank, I realize where the one, one way valve is it's in the inlet where you screw the hose on . the other is just before the pump at the inlet, so the city water won't fill the fresh water tank. Are those the check valves your talking about?

Terry,
Mine has a check valve just after the hot water exit, I would imagine that is keep the water from flowing back into the HW tank. The other two that you are talking about have to be in the system, The one out of the water pump is to keep the pressure in the system when the pump is off. The one at the city water inlet is to keep the water in the system when using the water tank and pump.
There is usually 2 valves (1 at inlet, 1 at outlet) at the HW tank with a line that runs between them. This is to bypass the HW tank when you winterize the system. These are 2 direction valves and not check valves. The idea behind this bypass is so that you don't have to fill the HW tank with RV antifreeze when winterizing.

Good Afternoon, Frank, I'll have to check the piping over, the only thing on the back of the WH is the two valves and bypass hose, you can see that in the pic in post #768 it looked like it was "factory" but after those many yrs anything is possible, I will definitely check it out. thanks for the heads up, I missed that. I installed the first window, hope to get one more and the water inlet today. I cut the window out with my power scissors, and I had searched for a flush trim bit for aluminum, found them for 100.00 dollars, but I had several for triming counter tops, soooo I tried it, and it works great, and its still in one piece and sharp.

I am going to take out all the windows in my MH and replace the butyl tape. Been thinking might try the peel & stick window flashing before the butyl tape goes on. Put a strip along bottom and wrap around edges a couple of inches. Then a strip around the sides, wrapping around the top and bottom. Then same thing along top of window cut-out. Then the butyl tape and re-install the window. Can trim the flashing and tape after the trim goes on inside and outside. Thinking that in the future, even if the window decides to leak around the butyl tape, water would not get inside walls of MH. We will see.

Still enjoying your progress.

Some more progress today, did get the other window in, Ron I see what you mean, I don't see why that won't work, just check to see if there is enough room to put the flashing in most of the windows that I have done on other trailers are really tight, they don't have alot of room in the rough cut out, building new I would have enough, ............maybe, if you look where the screw holes are they are very close there isn't alot of room there ether. Have to ck it out, Thanks for the thought, David, Thanks! Gordon, sent you a PM.

LOL, Gordon, lets see, five more windows, two side power vents, (one for the kitchen, one for the bath), two septic vents (out the side, not roof) an external drain for the fresh water tank, outside outlet boxes (two), then the roof but that has to wait for warmer weather. I think thats all, that I can remember. I did get the water hookup door in today. But the weather is turning colder after today, shouldn't stop putting in on the sides, I hope.

Terry,


Window installation must have really brightened up the inside for you and given you a new idea of what it will look like. Still enjoying the thread, thanks for the updates.


Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!
