Added some pipe foam to quiet my noisy slide lock. We'll see next time I go for an exercise run.

I did, in fact, pull out my entire dash and paint it, along with the vinyl engine cover and all the doghouse trim work. I used the Rustoleum 2X paint, which is supposed to be good for vinyl and plastic. It came out great. Make sure everything is very clean (I cleaned mine with acetone prior to painting.) Also, I noticed it took several days before the paint got completely past that slight "sticky" feeling, so be patient before reinstalling it. Overall, I was very pleased with it and it has been done for over a year now, with no chipping or peeling.

It was nice weather, so decided to take off the exterior Furnace chrome cover that combines the intake/exhause as one exterior unit, to clean out dirt and wasp nests and replace the butyl gasket that had started to give way from 30yrs time on our '84 Fleetwood Prowler. Bought used recently, so going over things to make sure that when we take it out----everything works properly.
Was glad I did. I found 2 nest 6" back inside the air intake side. One nest was from dirt daubers and one nest from paper wasp.

Right now, I have some plastic bags in the vent holes to keep out wasp, so I have time to get some screens to install.

Got busy and replaced a good receptacle with an upgrade to double USB/plug so we can charge our phones without all the gadgets getting lost...with the good one I replaced another double gang receptacle that had one side fried

now if I could just figure out why the running lights are not working????
blowing a fuse. only thing I can think of is when I screwed the fabric covered window panel back up into the ceiling.....maybe hit a wire?
gotta love owning a pre-owned 1981 rv.....

I pulled out the Suburban furnace and ordered a new control panel for it. We will need it as we camp during the winter. Also checked out the Atwood water heater, debating whether to fix or purchase a new one, parts are a shade over $300 and a new one from Amazon is $375.

Part # 0884028
