Before buying a LASR wheel I tried a heat gun and plastic razor blades and after an hour all I had was an area about the size of a playing card done.

The Large Area Stripe tool impressed me with how quickly it removed the old stripes.

Now I have to figure out whether to go with paint or vinyl, the ghosting is pretty distinct. All the years outside in Louisiana/Florida really baked them on.





These are from week before I finished removing the last of the large graphics and the upper ones.
Your coach looks very much like our 1999 Allegro Bus with slight differences. Is that an Allegro?

Got a hold of a ozone machine. I'm going to see if I can get rid of some of that old motorhome/trailer smell. I may be just

Make sure you remove pet's and any plants. I have heard they deplete the oxygen in the treated area.

And be sure to leave a vent cracked just a tiny bit open to allow for the air to replenish so that the machine continues to be functional.

Well, the trip went nice. Took my first shower in the rv, water was nice and hot. I then heard the water heater flame cut off, figured that it shut off because the temp was at the limit. When I went out to turn it off to save lp, the flame and pilot light was out. Thought that was odd......then I noticed water leaking out of the outside of the tank, looked in the burner chamber and it was filling with water. Tank is rusted out, so I ordered a new one today, this time with electronic ignition so I don't have to go outside and light the burner with a match while holding the pilot button down. So now I have another project to do. Hope it goes smooth. Even with 3 days of rain everything else in the rv worked great. Next trial run for 3 days next week.

if you leave a couple of bowls of coffee and vanilla around in places where it is secure and will not spill, eventually you will have a great smelling rig, who doesn't like the smell of coffee

Replaced the thermo-coupler on the water heater and she fires right up and has a nice Blue flame. Might pick one up for the fridge too.

A few days ago my vent tube on my gravity fill got clogged up so I ordered a huge continuous spool of pipe cleaner (well huge for pipe cleaner anyway, more like about 52 inches of the stuff) It came in today and did a wonderful job of clearing whatever was blocking the vent line so I can fill my fresh water smoothly again.

Barrel Chair

We finally got our barrel chair back from the upholstery shop and, only 6 weeks late but, well worth it. Excellent job and less expensive than buying new with the fabric we wanted
