During the last week:

Sanded, prepped, masked and painted the old faded striping on our '95 Bounder but still need to finish the drivers side.

Waiting on parts for '84 Prowler.

4) Window/vent handles. Chose metal handles and now, all will match in color and style.
2) vent lids that are unbreakable to replace the cheaper broken vent lids.

Decided while waiting on parts, I'd start removing some easier/smaller exterior pieces that the butyl seals have dried out on and re-butyl tape the pieces to seal out any water leaks.

Good thing I'm doing this. All wood is good behind the parts I've found so far, but those seals were pretty much gone after 30+yrs.

Painted one small division wall in bathroom that is facing the shower area and isn't seen unless you're in the tub and is hidden by shower curtain, but didn't want any water from condensation to ruin the structure. Need to put a couple more coats on to make sure it's really sealed well, then do a light silicone caulking around the joints to know water won't wick into them to ruin everything I worked hard to restore with new paneling.

Looking for exterior trim pieces

If you try the white tire cleaner and it doesn't come clean to your satisfaction you could always tape off and paint. Now a days Walmart has spray cans for metal and plastic. This would be cheaper than replacing. I have revived many things on my 1990 HiLo with spray paint.

X's 2 I didn't think of paint, the 99 caddie had some parts (interior) when we bought her almost 16 years ago that were painted, Most parts have heled up pretty well.

Hi Ron,
Glad your shower turned out. What a relief I'm sure.
The brown paint got sanded pretty good and then I used Rubbing alcohol. The clear just got wiped down with same. I'm still working on the rear. Don't think I will get that done before we leave for AZ

Put some of those stick on tiles in the galley area.
It really brightened things up.
It took DW and I about 4 hours from start to cleaned up and the tools put away.

I didn't think to take a 'before' picture until 'during', but we were still just getting things out of the way at that point.

Wow Tim, the PA looks nice.

Del & Jerre, Nice job on the bathroom.

Tim, have you thought about painting that trim if you can't find the right replacement. Maybe black?

Snows very sharp!

Podivin, looking good.

RLCO6, Congrats on the new to you rig. It's exciting isn't it? You'll learn and in no time be old hat at this. Then you'll come back here for more info.

Ya all are doing a great job on your rigs. The only thing I've done to mine lately is make a reservation to take her out next week camping. But hey, that is what we love.

Lynne

Thanks Lynne and Deano.
Deano, when my wife first started talking about them I was afraid they'd look too much like plastic stuff stuck on the wall (which is exactly what they are), but they don't look bad at all. You have to be careful to get the 'grout' seams to all lined up when putting it on, other than that installation is easy. They're very thin and cut with either scissors or a utility knife. Most important, they are VERY light. My wife tucked them all under one arm and carried them out to the coach.

Post What I have been doing...

Made a list of things to do to my 36' 1989 Rockwood Forest River Class A.
It sat the last 2 years in the driveway and 3 years previous to that was on a Permanent site. Always ran and drove at least a couple hundred miles a year.
Got motorhome back from Tire center. New Hankooks on the front and Milestar on drive axle.
Took Off Engine cover To see how hard my Alternator Replacement is going to be ugh!
Started my Tail Light Conversion To Bargman LED installed and working properly, Just need to make a small panel for each to fill a gap
Wrote down all lamp and lens manufacturer and model #'s
Went inside the house and researched and ordered all new lenses/lamp assemblies and LED bulbs. Also a LED T/S Flasher. It turns out that my factory T/S lamps are an exact mate to 1967-68 GM Pickup Trucks, and classic truck parts co. makes a direct fit LED assy.. My Grote brand lower body lamps and lenses are 9007. They now are 90072 for red and 9007 for amber. Clearance Lamps are all Bargman that are still in stock also, The only real Problem is the Brake/Tail/TS reverse cluster made by Reflecto-Lite... Nothing to be found online except crazy priced lenses on ebay...Reflcto Lite was bought out by Bargman Years ago and discontinued much of their product line. I am figuring that by the end of next week when the parts come in, I will be full exterior LED lamps/Bulbs. I believe that it will take less time to install everything than it did to find all these Lamps.LOL
Soooooo very much to do , Fluids and Filters, Lube chassis and Body, WASH,WASH and wax exterior and much more
