Did it help with cooling? Mine looks a lot like your before, but I have not gotten around to cleaning mine up.

I didnt even try it. I had to work on the roof so it just did it while I was up there.

Started R&R on roof vent, and repair on old water damage to ceiling. Going to try to glue the minimally separated plywood and loose ceiling covering.

DONE!! Replaced roof on 5er. Replaced sheeting, EPDM, and resealed everything. Added insulation to some gaps, sealed the ducts better, replaced the existing lighting with dimmable LED (some on a dimmable ciruit and some on a switch).

Just waiting for the self leveling sealant and caulking to dry.

I actually did it FOR the RV and not TO the RV, but today I had an electrician run a dedicated 30A line to her carport. Now she has a 20A and a 30A all to herself. Lucky girl.

My "water pump switch" is ON whenever we in the the coach, (unless we have campsite/city water)....it has been for 13 years, 105k miles.
Since we never turn our sticks & bricks well pump OFF why would I want the water pump OFF in my coach?
Wondering
Thanks

Been a lot of disasters created by not turning the water off in your sticks and bricks. We ALWAYS turn off the water and water heater if leaving for more than a few days..... cheap preventative insurance.

Agree - we leave our pump on all of the time unless we are away for an extended time.

Well I got a new fridge installed in the camper, the old one died after 24 years. I got a call saying the fridge was working great, but they had a power surge due to an open ground and it blew my rear AC and convection oven so now I get a new one of those at no extra cost to me!
