Possum,


Getting her on her side is a secret that I will show you when we meet up. Can't figure out how to fix that and she won't go back straight up.


Bakerman, You also used the Zep? I had a few people suggested it and I have to say I was surprised at how well it shines. I've done three coats and plan to do another one at least. It took me a while to do the whole thing all around because of working still. I did the rear end, then the passenger side, and then the front and driver's side. Did you also do your roof? I have a fiberglass roof and plan to do it also.


Just like the way it looks. She is pretty and looks new. Lynne

New Carb for Genny

Installed a new car on my Onan 5.5 BGM-H. It was a fairly easy install but I didn't think it would fix the problem. Had a mobile MH mechanic look at it back in the spring and he said the carb was the problem and it needed a new one as they could not be rebuilt. After a dozen calls and many months, leaving messages each time, trying to get him to come back and fix it I stopped calling.
The generator worked when I went over the motorhome the week before we bought it (in Oct of '14). Brought it home and it sat for a couple days when I tried starting the genny. When cold, it would start right up and idle nicely then the exact moment it made electric it would cut out. Sometimes it would go a few seconds after that or it would immediately die when I let go of the key. Sure did seem like an electrical thing to me as opposed to fuel.
Two weeks ago I decided to order the part from PPL and do it myself. Low and behold the danged thing started after a few seconds of turning over and kept on running. Then the electric came on. Took about 2 minutes for that to start though, not sure why. After it ran a bit I turned the AC on and ran the microwave. All was running well. Left it go for about an hour and plan to run it every month from now on and making sure to use sea foam in the tank too.
I'm sure hoping I didn't dream all of this and it will be working the next time I visit. Might take on a couple college games this year. Feeling happy!

When most folks are winterizing their RV's we are just pulling ours out to prep for Tailgating season

So we finished with fixing the starting issues the we have been battling the last year and we have seem to fix it I washed it and deep cleaned the interior. Started up the Fridge, AC, and the Generator with no issues. So we are now ready for Seahawk Football

GO HAWKS

Took a closer look at my furnace and found such a horror show of filth and corosion that I'm looking into replacing it entirely.

It takes two minutes for the electric to come on because there is a two minute delay built in your changeover box. It allows your generator to get up to speed and normalize before a load is placed on it.

Old slider on entrance door

You know that slider section of the screen door on a MH? When we bought our 2004 MH ours was broken and we glued and reinforced it and it broke again.

Decided rather than trying to order another one (since I thought it was ugly anyway) my DH came up with another solution. He decided to take a piece of plexiglass and cut it to fit in the slide area. Added another section to strengthen it and some other stuff and wallah, a new door that we like much better.

Finished the fourth oat of Zep on the MH and two oats on the roof. Boy does it shine, Glad that is done. Going camping in two weeks and then hopefully another weekend or two before winterizing. Lynne

Our old Honey got a touch up on her Eternabond because the passenger side corner started peeling back on our trip home from Bryce Canyon this summer. All done, had some rain this AM... timed perfectly. More rain tomorrow AM and then I'll go inside and see if all is dry!
She does need another coat or 2 of Zep..... her finish isn't as shiny here a couple years down the road after we did that to her. ( must have soaked into the fiberglass?)

Built a cargo carrier for the receiver hitch, to haul stuff to the Dog rescue events for the Dane rescue.
Worked great, in spite of my welder circuit board going out, and having to resort to the arc welder.
Thinking it may need wheels, or a ramp go some kind, to make it more versatile.

It worked great, and RV is definitely the best way to roll to a dog event.

Fixed the refrigerator today, worked on DC, but not on propane.
Had to do a bit of diagnostic work, took off a few gas lines, and blew them out, as I found it was not getting gas.
All is working well not, and I am happy.
