Had to replaced the black water sewer valve. Used a Valterra cable pull valve.

Found and (I think) repaired a leak in my HWH system and then installed a battery kill switch on the chassis battery. I have a hidden (to me) electrical drain on the house battery and this was the quickest solution to get it circumvented.

The only bad side effect was I have to use the MOM switch to put the stairs up once I kill the battery power.

Looking out the window longing for the day when I can finally pull the cover off and hit the road!!!

Finished cleaning the roof. It's an all fiberglass roof, with some kind of rubber membrane glued to it. The fiberglass parts are easy to clean, the rubber - not so much. Road trip tomorrow to MerleFest.

Thumbs up Today I'm

going out too the driveway get inside open all the curtains and open a window (maybe its still only in the 40's) unhook the shore power and start her up ( I know it will start I have been practicing the last month) Then put her in gear and drive her to Cosco 15 miles away, maybe some high test petro a little shopping and then home. "I know" they say its going to be in the upper 50's today how about giving her a bath.
I wish some camp was open, we would go its been a looooong winter.

I am READY

I'll be finishing the last curtain for the 1992/93 Dutchman Class-C today. This is the one for the window by the sink. I hope the material isn't too dark. Sometimes when something looks good on the fabric bolt it doesn't look good on the window.

We'll probably have the oldest CC in the campgrounds.

Not if you're in the same campground as our old 1977 24 foot Chev Diplomat. The people who bought it from us are planning a trip around the Island for this year and then a trip next year to parts east.

BTW please post pictures of the finished product.

Today?

Today I pried approximately 18,472 staples out of the floor after pulling the ugly and, thanks to a minor but long leak out of the toilet inlet valve, wet carpet out of the back half of the Bounder, from the bath door back. We were going to pull it anyway, so no big deal on the leak. (Dometic is sending a new valve, as the unit is only 10 months old).There were actually TWO layers of carpet, the original dark brown, and a somewhat newer (late 90s????) vintage of light brown. Since the MH in it's previous life lived in Florida as home to a FT'er, there was also somewhere around 14 pounds of sand under it all...

Once I get all the rayon up, and the DH picks a color of Allure she likes, we'll have at it.
