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.
After two weeks of testing I can confirm we are finally ready for a trip.

Removed the Thetford Aurora and re-sealed the upper mechanism, also replaced the water valve. While it was out it got a good scrubbing with simple green. Next I removed the old water heater (tank had split) tomorrow I will finish installing the replacement.

Framed in the driver's side tub wall and dry fit the fresh tank to get dimensions based on the original cabinet pieces so I can start calculating pieces.

Fresh water will definitely need to be up in the cabinet under the sink, with the tub wall framing in, and the size of the new tank, there's not enough room by the tank itself to put the pump.

2 days ago - replaced the front shocks with Konis. Haven't driven it yet so don't know if there is a difference.
Yesterday - put Dynamat sound proofing in the doghouse. There was a noticeable difference just sitting in the driveway. Enough so that I could tell where I DIDN'T put it, have to order some more to put on the firewall.

Finished installing the hot water tank. Repaired the 2 ceiling panels where the foam disintegrated, causing a sag. Removed the board from the fridge and cleaned the contacts so the slide switches work properly. Today will be an exterior Simple Green wash followed by 3M boat finish restorer.

Poisoned some rodents using a bait station, and a few trays of poison...

Researched DIY bait stations.

Hand waxed front and rear caps and one side complete. Going home tomorrow so I can finish using the buffer I forgot this trip. Turning out better than hopped for.

Tim,
Hand waxing with paste wax is really the hard way to do that, ask me how I know.

Very true, but don't you like the results. I usually apply by hand and use the buffer to take off but I forgot it at home. I'm hoping to go over it with the buffer before Thursday just too bring out the shine a bit better. How do you do yours?

Take care,
Tim

Tim,
I used the paste wax 2 years ago to take all the oxidation off and since then, I use mcquires Spray wax. It seems to hold up pretty good, other than the front cap, I have to use 3M polish on it to remove all the oxidation, then wax. But it raises up, so the sun is really hard on it. I do this at least twice a year sometimes 3.
Frank

Bought transparent duct tape to tape down the awning post because it was flapping. Gotta figure out a replacement. Reading the manual, this one will take at least 3 people, 2 of whom will be on step ladders. No thanks!
