It's not just today, more like 2013 so far. Bamboo floor and steps, new water heater, new fridge, new kitchen teak cabinets, exterior top diamond plate almost complete, storage boxes re tinned, insulation and carpet in progress, painted and rehung the propane tank. Lot's more complete or in progress, I'm hoping to hit the road full-time in the Fall.

Older repairs are a fiberglass roof, all new everything on top, new charger/converter, new holding tank washer and senders. All the windows removed and re bedded.

How do I sign in from an iPad?

Bathroom Funk removal not yet complete. I have learned how well the glue holds on old flower petal batch tub traction thingies. Oh my goodness. Lots of razor scraping. Rain and wind here today so we see how the roof holds up. Hubby sealed it , cross your fingers.

I finally got the passenger side window back in. I took it out a couple months ago to reseal it, and when I was putting the trim ring back on, I somehow got hold of a too-long screw, which contacted the glass when I screwed it back in. Believe me, it didn't take much pressure at all to shatter that tempered glass into a gazillion pieces. Nobody around here can work with tempered glass. I was able to take a piece of laminated glass out of an old school bus that worked very nicely. My local glass shop was able to cut it for me, and it made for a very professional-looking install.

After many hours of sanding and refinishing all the oak cabinets in my 1991 Beaver, I was able to start putting all the hardware on the doors and drawers.

I sat on the back deck and stared at it for a half hour wishing we could go out soon. With a new baby born Friday and harvest starting it will be parked for a while.

yesterday

We had an RV repair dude come out and share a bit of his knowledge. Basically he confirmed allot of thoughts we had and pointed us int he right direction for the do-it- yourself portion of the project. Refrigerator and propane lamp removal will commence directly. Dismantling the locks on t \he back door will also get done. All keys are lost and we cannot get the back door open. The man was great and gaveus what we think is sound advice. we have allot of work to get serious on before the snow flies.

I replaced the round 7 pin trailer plug on my 1993 Vagabond 13ft. Also installing a laminate wood floor in my 16ft Casita. Sanitized the water system in my 2001 HR Alumscape 25ft.

Yanked out the co-pilot's window assembly, took out the fixed lower window, separated the panes, cleaned and buffed the glass, reassembled and installed. I can see the mirror while driving !!

Tell us the part about separating the panes? Tough? What did you use?

You should know by now if yours is doing it mine is to!
