Refrig was not working on propane, wouldn't litght. Took the cover off and cleaned out the burner chimney area. Works well now!

Also cut a 5 1/4" x 27" peace of stainless, polished it up and installed as a kick plate above the stairs, beneath the door. The area was scuffed up, looks great now.

Replaced the toilet valve.

Involved an R&R, but it was a simple process.....Valve replacement-1/2 hour. Cleaning.......1 1/2 hr... Best Part......no insultingly long wait at the RV repair shop resulting in half-fixed RV

I discovered the source of my persistent draw on the batteries and potentially avoided a major catastrophe down the road:

Somewhere along the line a previous owner installed a custom dual exhaust system and had the foresight to weld a heat shield above the mufflers and catalytic converters. Unfortunately, the main harness to the rear of the coach apparently was touching the shield and melted through. The 6 gage wire to the converter was bare as well as others for the radio speakers. Fortunately enough is accessible where I can read the numbers on the wires to make a new harness this weekend. One more wrench in the spokes...

Bought a new 35 gallon ABS holding tank for it, along with the flanges. Now, I just need to see if the sides are straight enough to add a side inlet off of a T- for a diversion setup (Combined waste tank setup, similar to my 74' KIT, currently it has no gray water system other than diversion).

Installed a marine ON/OFF switch at the battery. We have a CO2 & a Propane sniffer that are wired into the 12v system. House breaker to the shore power tripped and batteries drained down. Now I have a way to disconnect the 12v without removing the POSwire at the battery.

Last week plugged in my new tow dolley and the lights didn't come on. Unplugged it and tried starting motorhome. Wouldn't start. Come to find out the power distribution block melted at a relay and burnt several wires. So it took this week to pull a block and install it on rv. I have never seen so many wires or soldered so much in my life. Was really nervous yesterday when I put the key in and start it but it worked. 40 wires down and only looking at the trailer plug left to look at.

We put in a backsplash, glass tile squares. I'm glad that's done, now I can get back to the complete recaulking of the RV!

Ripped out part of the wing on the driver's side where it had rotted out and replaced it with fresh plywood and 2x4s.

Tore out part of the plywood on the floor to solved the mystery of the flexy floor. Turns out, it wasn't dry rot, just laziness on the part of the folks that put it together.
