So far I have purchased all my dicor for the roof as well as the proflex for all windows and corner seals ( no leaks yet, not bad for a 23 yr old coach from bc) spark plugs, air filter, I have already sewed new window curtains ( me! Not d
DW! Lol) and yesterday I made the 45 min trek to do a complete resto with the Zep wlfw as well scoped out our site for the may long weekend DW can hardly stand my obsession

I'm afraid about the best suggestion I have is to measure the area and get on Ebay and buy one. You gotta have water. At least I know I do. I don't think they're that expensive because I'm sure you can find one that will fit already made. No need to have one custom built.

As for me, I got nothing done outside of spending money. I did buy a set of chrome wheel simulators from an Ebay seller. Cheapest guy I could find at $139.00 with free shipping. Closest to him was $169 or higher ($202.00 @ O'Reilly's Auto Parts). I'm pretty good at this money spending thing. Which, of course, is a problem in of itself.

OOOOHHHHH Copper water lines. Got to be from the seventy's. You will not find a tank that lines up with the old water lines, but you can replumb the tank area with plastic.

There are some very reliable pressure fit connectors that will take you from copper to flexible plastic on the market that will make the transition easier. Most DIY stores would have them in the plumbing section.

BTW LaZy507 I have a smaller tank that came out of a TT I scrapped for parts for another project. Let me know what opening you have and I'll measure mine. You can have it for the cost of the shipping.

Repaired my rear ladder after it was visciously attacked by my garage overhang. Bought repair parts from RV surplus in Elkhart In.. Cut out an 18" section and inserted the new tubing, looks really great, have to know what to look for to see the repair, took about 2 hours.

Repaired the lift link on my Fantasticfan, the plastic roller that fit into the lid rail, it failed from sun damage. Used a small bolt, locknut, two 5/8 od diameter washers with a 5/16 diameter washer sandwiched between the two 5/8. Better than new, never fail again.

Sold the 77 without even advertising it was for sale.

Now on to playing more in the only one we got left.

Oh, and I took a nine foot 12 X 12 fir beam and cut at a long angle to make ramprs for getting the front end up for working under the old girl.

pulled the main fuel tank removed the in-tank pump plumbed it for an external pump cleaned all the rust off and painted with a coat of rust blocking paint and reinstalled it with new hoses.
my thinking is if the pump ever lays down i can replace it now in twenty minutes or so instead of an all day project

I pulled the cap off my reefer vent, removed and resealed the vent. It seems that the only thing I thought was no leaking on that roof had a tear in the old sealant. New butyl tape, stainless screws and Eternabond, and hopefully, that's a done deal.
While I had it off, I installed 2 12-volt computer fans to cool the coils. I'll know this summer how that works.
