Roller and brush. A 4" roller on cabinets. I sanded down the hinges and handles, sprayed them with Rustoleum carbon mist.

Looks great!! I am scared to take that plunge into white cabinetry, it gives such a fresh look but just not the norm in the rv world

Looks excellent .... fresh and clean look. What color is the wall behind slide? ... looks grey or platinum on my screen.

Thanks for the compliments. The paint color is river stone, its a medium grey with a little bit of plum in it.

As for the white cabinets, I wanted something that would not look like a traditional RV inside. I am installing 2 recliners tomorrow, and I am waiting for my magic couch and dinette to come back from
The reupholster shop. I also removed and threw Way all the valances and blinds. I am installing white shutters. Pics to follow in a couple weeks.

Yeah, DaveDeb1, the jury is still out on that one. It is one of those projects that, part-way through you are asking yourself "Should I really have done this?" I hope I can get it all back right.

Shutters sound interesting ... looking forward to seeing the pics! I threw away our valances and made oak valances with soft white cellular shades.

Just sent in the $95 fee to renew my Class A personal license plates for another year.
Doesn't anyone else need to renew license for their rig?

I have an intermittent chassis ground which was periodically killing my chassis battery and requiring the use of the house battery jumper switch for starting. Fooled around tracing wiring under the coach and found a problem with the way the trailer brake applicator was wired. I've cut off all the wiring from the battery to this unit.

Neat wiring job to boot, everything was wired in heavy gauge wire but all blue! The positive had tags every couple of feet which read (12 Volt +) or (12 Volt -) or (GRND NEUT) acting as identifiers. These are now all still in place but disconnected from the system. Weird way some think.

got back from Maine trip, not for fun moved daughters up there, pulled carburetor off of the old girl sending it to Florida to get it professionally rebuilt. i put a kit in it but still wasn't right but after 28 years of wear and tear and these folks advertise that they can make it better then new and make it perform correctly on today's fuel.
their pricing is fair and normally they ship you a rebuilt unit and you ship them your core.
but they don't have a core for mine at this time so I'll ship mine to them and we'll see

Another good weekend

finished the install of the new full motion bracket and 26in LCD, need to finish out the inside of the old CRT space, but all working.
Also installed a new, modern microwave, one that actually works on my generator. Required re-work of the opening to fit the new microwave, as it was not at tall as the old one.
Still working on getting my sat receiver to work on the installed Winegard system, a bit frustrated.

Well today I painted the sleep area above the cab. I primed it last nite and put a coat on the ceiling waited for it to dry so I could tape it off and put a coat on the front and side walls. Now waiting for it to dry so I can go sponge paint my final touch.

This past weekend I primed the bedroom and livingroom kitchen area painted the ceiling and painted walls and sponge painted the walls.

Now I have to clean the mess up!

Next weekend I get to clean the outside up..
