Tim,
Sorry to hear about the curtains, you might want to check in a department store for house curtains of the correct size.

My wife ordered heavy duty commercial shower curtains to replace ours with.
They are plastic, some they do not get moldy, musty or whatever that smell is.

Off Soap Box.

Pictures to follow, because I don't know how too get them from the Phone Camera too the computer.

Are you going throttle-body or newer carburetor in this decluttering or am I missing the intent of your decluttering?

The intent is to make it easier, and cleaner to work on.
in turn it will run better.
I hate that hodge podge of "stuff, that does nothing because most of it is old, worn out, or broken.
Still a lot to do, and I intent to add some stuff back, once I figure out what I want, or need

My original front curtains were past it when I got my motorhome. I went to Walmart and bought some room darkeners. They block out all the light and they cut down on heat. I bought the long panels..I think they are 83 inches (or something close). I just turned them sideways and used curtain hooks. The hooks loop through the sliding loops and allow me to simply slide them open and close. What started out as a temporary solution turned into a permanent fix for me

Thanks, I am not sure what your talking about. I am not very good on the computer and the phone's we bought has way too many gadgets . It's a galaxyS4 phone. After almost a year I just figured out how to use this hotspot program, Joe has always turned it on for me. . I will watch a little closer.
He does hook up a cable to the phone to the laptop and does something on the key board. I'll have to have him show me how too do it.
I'm not really sure what I'm going to do about the curtains I'm still ticked off. Mine were original when I bought her too, and I washed those and they came out of the washer in threads I guess after 33 years of use that's to be expected. I'd really like too get those night shades that go up and down automatic I think they would look really cool on this old gal.
I saw one @ a flea market but the guy only had one How do you expect to sell just one. No funds for those either.
I really have to get tires on the rear first.
Thanks for the suggestions,

Tim

Not today but on Saturday DW and I started the task of removing the ugly stripes. We were able to get most of it off with the 3m stripe remover wheel. That thing is amazing LOL. Today I was able to replace the fuel filter on the generator. Next is to change the oil, oil filter ,air filter and spark plugs. We are going to go to Eisenhower SP this weekend for a fishing tournament that the company I work for is putting on.

Spent 4 days driving to Alabama from New Hampshire. Did a few days stop in Tennessee to say "Hi" to some motorcycle friends and replaced both rear calipers at the same time. Now we are setting up camp for our first winter bird thing. Just tired of snow....

Fixed Door covering Electric & Water hookup connections

Had to replace the wood in the door, it was rotted out in top third, thankfully had a friend that is good at woodworking to cut out two large slots that allow you to close the door after hooking up. The next thing is getting all the windows resealed, this will be done by pros. Finding the rubber glazing bead was the biggest problem, the joys of owning a Vintage Avion. Prior to all of this was the refrigerator died the second day returning to Texas from a summer in Montana. The model that was in there is not available any more, so had to go with a smaller one which did not make the cook happy. Anyhow we are slowly getting it done. The trailer is pulled with a Ford ecoboost , which never went below 4th gear pulling any of the passes. A Happy Camper,gps
