I agree, those are great and inexpensive. I put one on mine a few weeks ago.

The most recent thing I did on mine was wander around inside it during Tropical Storm Hermine looking for leaks - none found!

Replaced wiper blades (the entire blade, not just the inserts). I searched for 26 inch blades on the internet and found them around $20+ per blade. Walmart was about $8 per blade. I bought them at costco for under $9.

I had to modify the plastic mounting a little and made a good fit.

Repainted the front strip on my 82 PA Primed it, then 3 coats of paint and 2 coats of clear using Spray Bomb's. 100 % better.
Just for sh** and giggles I sprayed the lower area under the front bumper with the clear and it darkened it too look like new. Can't count how many times I have tried everything under the sun and then try a clear spray bomb and it turned out really nice. Got too late for Pic's so have to wait till tomorrow.
Also pumped out the Blk Tank.
JS,
Tim

Tim, what do you use to get the wax off before painting?

1993 Fleetwood Coronado 28F

The past few days I did a few things. I washed the roof and coated it with protect all uv treatment.Cleaned up nice and has a nice sheen.I washed the body yesterday and today zepped it. I cracked my fan-tastic vent fan while working on the roof so I fiberglassed it and coated it with flex seal.I will probably do the wheels tomorrow. I am expecting a wesco lift tomorrow which I am going to attach a wheel chair to it to lift my daughter to floor level.I got a plan.We have been using 15 feet of aluminum foldable ramps for it so far.Hope this new idea makes life easier.She is totally road ready I would love to get in a just go to parts unknown.Almost time to look for color changes here in Mi. and we do plan on a trip to the U.P. when the time comes.I am also hoping to get to the township hall to see about putting up a R.V. carport.Boy I tell ya, got to ask permission and pay to get it to do things on your own property.

Last week I tore out bathroom tub/shower walls/trim and associated parts to repair water leak from 2015 winter.

Before I destroyed the interior, I first fixed where I believe moisture was penetrating. I fixed the side and rear (exterior) walls corner metal trim molding with new butyl strips and silicone caulking w/new longer/one size larger stainless screws to get rid of old rusted steel screws.
Bil came over with his tools and helped me install new 2x4 boards surrounding tub that didn't come up high enough for metal tub surround trim to attach too, so that was a good thing to catch and also add some new support 2x2 studs to provide better panel attachment points and we attached plastic sheathing to better waterproof interior panels and put up hardboard as wall backer before the waterproof shower panels went up. Used combination of both panel adhesive and screws to hold finish panels.
This is on our 1984 Fleetwood Prowler.Here's a few before/during/complete pics. I can add more if needed.

Does anyone have a source for some solid D shaped side molding (double-sided tape is on the flat side)? It is a trim piece on the sides of our '94 Montara that is quite weathered.

Could you show a pic to get idea about the molding you're speaking of?

I've got an idea about type, but size/length is not developing as an image of where it goes.

I've restored and customized cars/trucks and bikes and some of my trim pieces came from an automotive store, but large RV's require larger trim pieces. Many times when looking for parts, finding a packaged product gave me a name of who to contact to find product I needed.

What did you do to your old RV today?

It's 1" wide in cream color. I need 2 pieces roughly 15' long and one 8' long. I will take a picture tomorrow. It's a freestanding molding and not an insert. It run the length of the camper section about chest high

I finally did find some that might work at www.trim-gard.com. BTW, the D shape is the profile looking at the end of the molding.

Here's the trim as installed. UV rays have significantly dulled it.

Might I suggest a product called Blech-white, its for white wall tires. Try on a rag and a small area to see, I bet it will bring it back to almost new. I now it will take the mold above it off. I use it a lot. Works great on mini blinds.


JMO, Tim

Reverted the king bed modified by previous owner back to a queen for bedroom space and comfort, fixed the patio side slide topper where the plastic beading was deteriorated and compromising the integrity of the tooper's attachment to the coach, serviced the generator, fixed the reclinine function on my co-pilots chair so she we will keep her feet off the dash lol, installed some sliders on a pull out pantry, washed the roof, learned the front tv operation on antenna, DVD and surround sound and flushed all tanks and topped her off with fuel! All this Labor Day weekend...did I mention she is "new to us?" Lol

I repainted the front stripe on my 82, PA, Sunday,Monday ,not today, For Sh// and giggles the lower parts under the front bumper was oxidized and looked like hell so I tried a coat of clear over some of them. And looks almost new again
.I have too ask, the black streaks in the lower parts Pic's are the results of one of my batteries that blew its top. How can I remove them? I have tried a rubbing compound, wax's and nothing I have tried has removed them.


Before After






Thanks
Tim
