I agree Gordon, Excellent professional looking job Terry, but we have come to expect no less from you, haha. Good catch on the corrosion on the fuses.
I would be in the truck between stops only, then outside rolling and unrolling the discharge hose at every stop, usually 9 to 15 stops per day, by the end of the day I was beat from dragging everything through the snow and fighting the ice. Now I am cold when it gets below 60, age has a way of catching up to us like that.

Wow, Terry, It is coming right along, and I agree with everyone, looking very professional! When it is so cold out, being able to work on the inside nice and warm, is a plus!
I remember trying to start the old manual diesels, in the cold a** winter time! Once the old cab over Freightliner was so cold, would not turn over fast enough to start, so a buddy and I put two pieces of plywood on each side, and slid a charcoal grill under the oil pan, and put a piece of plywood in front to block all the wind! After about 15 min's or so, got in and it fired right up! But we smelled burgers cooking for the next day or so!!! Hahahahaha!!! Stay warm everyone! Rail!

Good Morning Everyone, Thanks for all for the kind words, Frank sounds like you delivered fuel oil? I used to work for Truck Stops of America for a few years, as a second shift mechanic, they would run low on fuel and I would have to run to the port and get fuel, but that was only one stop, couldn't imagine pulling that hose everyday. HH, she has ALOT of input on the kitchen (actually most of the TH). Rail, being able to work mostly inside is the reason I pushed to get it closed in, I was hoping I could do it. Oh me too, I remember the old trucks and loaders, I think the advances in oil have made a huge impact on engines ect, starting and lasting. Remember the old air starters? standing next to one when the driver lit it up? Going to the Dr's tday to see whats up with my knee, hoping it'll last a little longer, I have dead lines , I want to meet. Have a good day all.

Back from the knee doc, good and bad news, the good, not bad enough to replace,.....yet. The bad, not much he can do until it gets worse, cortisone shots, but that is limited, can't do too many, so I'll save'm till I can't stand it. So life goes on, its some much fun....this age thing.

Thats the rub is'nt it. Neighbour needs a knee but the DR says she does not take enough pain killers. I keep telling her take the drugs and get the knee replaced. She is running out of time. Soon will be too old.

Seems like when we were younger and working we were paying for everyone to get stuff done. Some guy took the health department to court, he wanted to be a girl and wanted health care to pay for it. He won!! Yet she cannot get a knee replaced. Can someone explain this to me?

I certainly feel for you Terry!

I fell and messed my knee all up, back in October. Been off-work since. Finally found a doc (Fourth one) that is willing to have a peek inside. Waiting to see when they want to go in.

To keep my post on-topic... Pics look great! You are doing an outstanding job!

Good Evening, Did a couple things this afternoon, Eleanor had suggested to move the corner cabinets (upper and lower) from the end of the sink area to the other side of the door, where there will be a wall separating the bedroom and the coach, so I dummied up to see what it would look like, I think it would be great, (it will also give a place to put the coffee pot!!) took a pic, imagine a wall behind it. Gordon, IMO thats part of whats wrong with alot of things, catering to the wrong people. EMD, thanks, we go off topic all the time, hope you have good luck, I've had one replaced and now this one is acting up.

Eleanor

Terry,

It would appear Eleanor has some more skills other than painting and flooring. She is right, great place for that set-up. Good place for coffee-pot, filters in cupboard above, couple coffee cups (maybe hanging from hooks or little shelf you could make) and store coffee below.

Could also be a good drink station. It's looking very nice. You two are going to have a great RV when you are done. Should give you a lot of years of service.

Hope it stays warm and that your knee cooperates. Nothing worse than having a plan to work and knee saying not today. Lynne

Good Morning Everyone, Popeye, That was a find when I saw that on Craigs list, I was the first caller and beat feet there, I would have had to buy alot of stuff, AC, water pumps, tank monitors ect, that the old 5er didn't have. I'm also using all the cabinets, bathroom ect, and it had a nice jackknife sofa that is going into the TV's sleeper. It seems our weather is almost the same this yr we are -6* and very windy. Lynne, Eleanor helped her dad rebuild houses when younger and has an eye for little things that I miss, I wish her dad was still with us, he would be a huge help in this project. I need to move an electric line in that area for the coffee pot, the bottom cab. has a radio in it, so need to move the speaker wires and 12v lines but easy to do now. HH, I might need to have a donations jar by the time I get this done ! LOL.
