Last of the decal removal. Used 3M Large Area Stripe Removal Disc 07517. 8" round, goes on a buffer polisher. Still very tedious and time consuming, but it does take off the decal. Tomorrow will be using 3M Adhesive Remover and scotch pad to get off remaining residue. Then will be painting where decal was and where faded burgandy paint is. Picture shows new color on bumper.

Checked out the water system today. Found that the check valve between city water and the pump is broken (water flows out city water port) and there is some kind of leak or Crack where water enters the toilet and it was spraying against the wall.

Pretty much stuck until I can get that leak fixed. Took all day to get the smell of stale rv anti freeze aired out and the bathroom carpet mostly dry.

I have been deoxidizing the MH I purchased about two months ago. I don't know if it has ever been waxed. The top is taking two applications but the basement doors seem fine with one.


I decided to wax the back end this am since I was done with the second application of rubbing compound and it looked pretty good. Did three applications of ZEP and WOW, does it look nice. Got part of the passenger side second compound coat done and then did two coats of the ZEP before the sun got around to that side. Looks great where it is done!.


This is going to be a bit more work and since I am still w--king I can't do any during the week. Took it back to storage (covered and out of the sun) and will pick it up for the weekend and continue to work on it.


Then I will be painting the handle areas and the Driver's side mirror Noticed today the slide topper brackets need painted also so will put that on the list.


This rig will definitely look much better when I am done then when I purchased it. Worth the work. Lynne

Oil drain valve with nipple to attach a drain hose, this should make the next oil change less messy.

Researched and investigated the Recair (TurboKool) swap cooler. Discovered the water supply off the pump is disconnected and terminated. So, that makes me wonder if the float is bad causing overflow of the reservoir. All parts are available from TurboKool.

Ran the generator and it was running uneven and looked like it was burning oil. Had a good friend look at it and it turns out the choke was stuck on it. Going to give the whole thing a good cleaning. Also found out some sound dampening foam had rotted and fell off the compartment wall and was in contact with the muffler of the generator Most likely a fire hazard so I'm glad that got spotted.

One more thing to add to the list of things to get done before winter I guess. (
clean out/replace air filter, change oil and get the gunk cleaned off of the area where the choke got stuck)

Changed the oil and filter with 10-30 Mobil 1 and Wix filter. Also applied the final 3 coats of Zep. With just over 9200 miles on the odometer, she's got lots of miles ahead as we take off again mid August!


Next project is changing out the Onan 7000 starter!

Four new tires across the rear to replace the 7 yr old tires there (well, one was 9 yr old since something shaped like a large screwdriver went through the inside sidewall on an outside dual a week ago ...we limped the last 9mi home and had the old tire in the shop put on to replace it). I was pleasantly surprised to be charged just over $2,200 out the door as the two fronts cost me a bit over $1,200 apx 27 months ago

Replaced the starter on our Workhorse 8.1 engine today. $120 from Auto Zone.
It was not cranking sometimes due to bad brushes. Works good now.

Also successfully tested the LP gas detector.
