There was no green light. The brightness was the result of the flash. Wait to you see what Dwayne managed to do where Possum screwed up. We are back to planning an upgrade to Gracie along with a cool colour scheme for the outside. Three shades of grey with black highlights.

It wouldn't be a propane detector, on the ceiling. propane is heavier than air. It is either a CO detector or a smoke detector. If the detectors are over 8 years old, you are supposed to replace them.

It is a Costar CO2 detector. I believe this is the old model that had a battery and sensor combination that you plugged in when the old battery ran out. It is old tech. Buy a new detector.

Took advantage of the 70 degree weather that we've been having. I scrubbed the Fiberglas roof of our Class A, power washed it, and then gave it 3 coats of the Zep high traffic floor polish...came out beautiful. I took my air compressor and blew out the rear panel of the refrigerater to clean out the dust, cob webs, etc and tested the frig and it works perfectly on gas and electric. I exercised the generator and tested both AC units. cleaned up a few spots on the exterior with "goof off". Restored and polished the front headlights with the 3M kit and they look like new. Replaced the bedroom mini blinds and valances with new natural wood roman blinds...looks great. Extended the slide and checked the seals and they look good for another season. I think that was it.

Bathroom O/H

Today I painted the bathroom. The original wall covering was peeling after 40 years. Plan on putting a small back splash behind the sink with material that was left over from the bathroom in the house. The cabinet door shows the original material which was nice enough yet but I had know idea how to glue it to make it stay again. So I took the heat gun to it and remove all the old material. Primed with kilz2 since there was glue residue left and I did not want it to bleed through. I had about 3/4 gallon of exterior semigloss in bright white left over from some project so that went on. Wife was happy when she got home this afternoon and I was happy with the out come so that's good. I think she wants to replace the sink and get away from harvest gold and it certainly would help bring it out of the 70's. We replaced the toilet last year when we first got the motor home going with a white porcelain unit. The shower stall is going to stay gold for now! Next on the list is to check the furnace to see why it is short cycling. I pulled it out of the wall today but have not got it into the shop yet. She would like the carpet gone, if the spring is long enough hope that will happen too. 1976 Dodge/Monoco.

Repaired a stripped out hole on the head of the 440. Header bolt hole was stripped. With the choice of a major operation of trying to get a Helicoil in or taking a chance on re-threading the hole to M10-1.25 I chose the later and it worked. A stripped out 3/8" 16 hole is the right size to cut the M10 threads.

I fixed my monitor panel for the holding tanks. Was a very simple process actually. But kind of funny also. I had my mom hold the button down as I cleaned the connection on the lp side and she said it was working for the holding tanks. I plugged the wire back and went to check. It wasn't. So I pulled the wire to see if I had a short and she said holding tanks work. I plugged it back up and nothing. This happen 3 times before I realized short was on lp side. So I left the ground unplugged on the lp. Next problem. The 1/2 light didn't work on black tank but did for the gray so I replaced the wire going to black tank and fixed that. Now I have half a tank of propane left so I will dig into that when she is empty but I noticed two wires taped off and to the gas line. I believe because it's the original 1994 detector that the lp shutoff sensor was removed which will need a new one installed as well as a detector and a new ground and power wire will fix that issue. It really wasn't that hard and I made my job simpler by using fabric softener in the black tank this past summer and keeping it full when we weren't using it. After a couple months the water was running clear when drained

You can use Krylon fusion paint to cover your harvest gold shower surround. I have read many a report of how well it holds up after several years.
