What was below the blue paint? Ours is that same wallpaper that is glued to the wall, similar to every other RV we looked at. I would love to be able to replace or recover some of it. If it is the wallpaper, how did you prep for the color?

Love the curtains also!

With VIN and engine serial number you can look up that info. My Cummins uses 13 quarts with filter.

Thank you so much! Before we painted the walls and drawers, it was the 'fake' wood paneling. We primed it all with Kilz stain block and then the latex paint. It seems to be sticking well so far. Next interior project is a 'marble' vinyl covering for the countertops in the kitchen and bathroom, and a vinyl backsplash covering that should be arriving soon. Will post pics when we get them on. Thanks for watching!

Cleaned out my oven using the most nasty caustic oven cleaner I could find. Mice had gotten in there and made the most awful mess you ever saw. After 8 hours soaking in the cleaner it looks pretty much spotless. I'm afraid I ruined my linoleum though. I had plans to put down one of those fake hardwood laminents anyway.

Fixed the gasoline issues due to rotted fuel lines at the tank.
That means that I had to drop the tank, since there was no floor access and the tank was tight up against both frame rails.
But....SUCCESS! Now the engine fires right up without having to use starting fluid, and the generator starts and runs from the dash or the gen. panel. So nice.

Tore more of the interior out, almost entirely down to the frame.

Bought a lot of parts to completely rewire the unit.

Continuing to update the interior. Even with the paint, my wife says it's too dark inside. So I am adding LED strip lights. They come on when we turn on the front 12v lights under the cabinets. I mounted a small aluminum angle to keep the lights from blinding you, but still focus the light downward. Will do it under the kitchen cabinets, and also in the bathroom and rear bedroom.
The last picture shows it without the LED strip turned on. Big difference!

Suggest you get dimmable lights if possible. Work really well.

washed her, got all the dust from Az off.
I think I might have a leaky, broken break line on the rear passenger side. Not sure, there was a drip on my tire on the outside dully. Maybe I'll luck out and a dog peed on it.:

Now I have power on the road

Installed a 1000W sine inverter yesterday. It was a new experience for me, but got it done and. now we can boondock now and then and still have a little power.
Today the Daybreak going to Coastal RV since I could not get the levelers to extend a couple days ago. Checked fluid level, getting power to solenoid, but doesn't seem to have power from solenoid to motor. Probably going to be an expensive visit. What we pay for glamping. Love it though.

No pictures today, but I finished an important task before the rains come again. When we parked the rv with the front a little lower than the back last week, we noticed a drip leak from the top center of the windshield area. I cut all the old caulk / silicone from the top front marker lights and windshield frame, and sealed them all today with 'through the roof' clear sealant. Hope that does the job...it is supposed to be the best at sealing leaks where you can't use eternabond tape.
I think I found the leak at one of the marker lights, because when I cut the caulk away from the bottom of the light, some water drained out. There should be no water there, so I guess we will know for sure in a couple days.

I had the same leak and it was the clearance light. I replaced all of them with 2 bulb fixtures. Led would have been nice but not at 6 bucks a pop.
Hope your repair works.
