I tore the couch apart and rebuilt it to sit along the back but under the couch ruffle houses a pull out foot ottoman and clothes basket. I also picked up a folding down table and mounted it along the wall so it could be lifted in front of the couch when a table is needed. When using the table, the ottoman can serve as seating for the opposite side of the table. Also have been lining the inside walls with wood paneling because the walls were so horrible looking it made my skin crawl and it really needed a fresh look if I'm going to be spending time in it. Also tore out the upper shelving to build a slim bed above the couch for my daughter to sleep on. The rv is so small that I figure every space needs to be completely functionable. Oh also replaced the flooring and tore out the closet area to add a small desk and chair for doing homework or housing the computer. I'm so excited with how this little ugly camper has transformed into a sweet little home away from home. God is good
This is awesome. Great job.

Just had the right side exhaust manifold gasket leak repaired. They also replaced the right side spark plugs while they were in there. I'll do the left side plugs in a few days.

I will finish clearing and rearranging things in my barn so I can bring the coach in to drop both fuel tanks and replace the wacked out level sensors, then I am going to replace all the rubber brake lines. Then I will put it back on the floor and start on the re-install of the microwave. It did not come with one as they were still very new and kind of rare when she was made. Then there are only a hundred or so little jobs to do before we head out for our first rally in late March.

As many things as I have on my list I just set it aside and opted for procrastination yesterday.

Going to re-install the water heater tomorrow. The PO did not drain the tank and it froze. Had it welded and tested. Bought new styrofoam shroud and bypass (since it had neither). Put the tank back together yesterday. Have to replumb tank - since I installed all new water lines on my last project (pex). Once water heater install - I will have hot water, for the first time, in the camper (YEA).

Drained the water tank and water heater, finished unloading it for the season. Put the little stinkpot generator and its mounting brackets away for the winter. Next, I have to find out why the house batteries are not being charged while I drive.
Cheers

That would be a bad solenoid that would also be used for start/boost if so equiped. If an old RV, it would be the battery isolator.

Rockman1: Which monitor is that? I think I used a similar one, if not the same and am having some issues with it losing power while driving. Not sure if it is the camera or the monitor or both.

OH, and in keeping with the thread. I added a folding shower-curtain rod Extend-A-Shower Expanding Shower Rods - Product - Camping World. WE LOVE IT!
