Upgraded my old 6300 series power panel to an 45amp 8500 with a 3 stage battery charger. Traced all the interior wiring and found a couple issues that I repaired.

Another step toward watertightness...

Removed the crusty upper marker light castings...



Polished them...


Replaced and resealed them on the roof!


While I had time, I polished out the front pass side corner a little more..

Great job on the lights. I see from the tag axle it is a 345. What year? I had a 1985. Loved it except for the 10 inch TV. I wound up putting a flat screen on top of the TV cabinet.

You are correct, its a 345, and an '84 MY.
No TV's came with it so I have a 23" LCD in the Bedroom and plan to build a swivel mount with a quick release for a 32" LCD we have. We will keep that in our guest room when not travelling.

Last night I did some more work on my rear bumper which is broken, and will be prepped and rewelded for now..
I am planning to polish it, so it will have to be quite good, or I will have to get a new one... $500 I dont have now, so anything is better than it hanging off!



Dressed out a few dents...
I think this is the one that originally broke the bumper..



After..


On the center there was a couple of dings too..


Done.


Then I started on the bumper over riders...
Stripped, sanded and polished first one..

1st snow in Kansas, ( or at least in my part) and the wind blew the air conditioner cover off the top. We should face north I suppose but the power is closer when we face south. So, we trudged around the property looking for it so we can put it back on. I need to look inside and see if snow has blown in. Quite the little blizzard for a couple of hours this AM!

Didn't work on the coach today but I did install the base plate and wiring harness to our toad. Going to start on the bathroom and hallway floor tomorrow though.

Well, it won't be going back on as it is too brittle and the fall didn't do it very nice. Looks like it will be the next thing I add to the what did you buy for your RV today thread!

Make sure you go back with the replacement cover, not the orignal. The replacement is guareented for life.

Hope you do better than we did when we lost ours out on the road - the replacement cost $125, and wasn't an exact replacement, and took some adapting new placement of screw mount positions to get it installed. It was apparent the the original mounting screws had loosened and fallen out, allowing the original cover to blow off - might be one of the things owners want to occasionally check...

What did you do to your old RV today?

Sadly I don't have a garage yet. Today I watched it snow - again - and we now have over 18" of snow, 12 of which came today and it is still snowing.

UV362 left and UV512 right just after they were unloaded, on Nov 14th, from a 48ft tractor trailer flatbed.



Sadly all of them have to sit outside until the garage is built.
They are now covered with Snow - Snow - Snow. (We watched White Christmas the other night) - GGG

Actually started laying the Pergo flooring in the bathroom and hall today. It sure helps to have all the necessary tools. I need to borrow a table saw and a jigsaw to finish this off

Ordered a new follower leg for the fifth-wheel landing gear. It's back ordered until mid January.

We sure like our Pergo.
It was installed first using the "floating" method and the thin foam under it. We found it to be noisy (creaky) while driving, so I took it up, removed the foam stuff and used mastic to glue it down. Problem solved.
