Went to the storage lot, plugged the 'ole entry level in to shore power. Turned on the fridge and serviced the batteries. Checked the tires for proper inflation, getting her ready for a trip this weekend.

Ripped out the nasty old blue carpet. Scraped, sanded, and primed the floor for "lick and stick" vinyl tile. Tomorrow's job.

Took her up the mountain for a long weekend at Big Bear Lake.

She likes being used, not abused.

Still trying to find the correct P-Trap for the shower/tub stall in the PA. I've tried 3 different set ups and none work. One set I bought said it was for the exact thing I am looking for Motorhome shower/stall/tub P-Trap.
I guess I am going to find it doing piece by piece at the big box place.
I did find the correct petcock and pressure relief valve for the water heater

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.....
It may be a long process, but have you tried removing the screws, one at a time to see if this is the cause?

Drove up and down a pass, not really a mountain pass as it's not really mountains but still struggled to go much faster than 25mph at times.
2 New Problems:
After a 500 mile round trip looks like the tracking might be a little bit off by the state of the front tyres :-(
Anyone know where to find the tracking details for a 1983 Forward Control Chevy chassis?
And the passenger side wind screen wiper motor finally died, think I'll replace both as the drivers side is definitely a bit tired too, just got to find where to get them from too.

Pretty lights and a happy dance to make my night.
It was the cover panel.

Are You sticking around this fall or heading South?
