getting ready for camping

We washed our truck and gave it a deluxe detail and well as our camping trailer. Tired but glad it is done. Had to use JB weld to glue a small piece of interior trim and also glued the exterior door stopper on. Put on the new RV registration sticker. Had new tires installed on the truck and have to make an early morning trip to the store where purchased for retorking.(sp)

two weeks ago replaced the house water pump not to bad tore out the dining area carefully, replaced the pump and lines cked for leaks repaired leaks and reassembled
last week pulled out the dead r/v fridge installed an energy star rated 4.4 cu ft Frigidaire remodeled the Cabinet around it and replaced the cheesy plug-in with proper plug-in.
still need to wire in the inverter so it can run with out the generator if we don't need the rear air.
this week end starting on replacing the exhaust manifolds pulled mine and resealed earlier ,just to far gone so will do what should have done in first place
but getting closer to finished so we can take it to Maine and see the grand daughter

well lesson learned had extra day off from work decide to install new exhaust manifolds today, should have done it while had it tore apart weeks ago.
being a ford all went well after i gave it an offering of blood, seems if you just cut your finger and drip a little blood on them things will go better,because you are going to bleed one way or the other.
but on the good side i tapped all the holes and used new bolts when i tried to get by with resealing it.so it was just a matter of getting the hands into a place they don't fit and turning bolts you can't see.
six and a half hours later started no exhaust leaks and dog house is back in gave up for evening will reinstall sets tomorrow.

started the day going to build a cradle to mount my portable generator on the rear of my rv, the rv generator lost a $800 part or that seems to be the going price if i can find it, so I'm just going to use a portable for a while.
but the power steering pump decided to start squealing from a bearing starting to go out.
so today's project was replacing the pump with a side job of installing the proper spring in the secondary's on my carburetor .
better now then while on the road

I didn't do it today, but over the weekend I did the two step Camco roof cleaner and conditioner treatment. Looks good.

Added a clock and outside temp to the panel above the sink, added 120 volt/amp and 12v volt/amp meters as close as I could get to converter box. The original converter works like a dream, not sure if it has battery charge capabilities(if any old timer's have an answer) if not I will just add a trickle charger. Started changing all bulbs over to led. Should save alot of current original 1141 bulb = 18 watts new led under 1/4 watt and really same brightness just cool white not warm. SNO

Spent the afternoon yesterday going through the generator, fixing a mysterious no-start problem that came on out of nowhere when I started tuning it up. Turns out the paper gasket for the plastic choke housing was out of shape and making the choke stick on. It's the little things that can mess up your day! Put the choke back together and got the genny running smooth and strong now, just took a lot longer than it ought to!

Removed our forward bunk and replaced some vinyl on the ceiling above the driver's area. Reassembled everything, then made sure the tv still work for about a half hour.

Waiting for mine to get out of the body shop after a semi truck/trailer took off my drivers mirror and a chunk of wall.
