Sadly, the last thing I did with my poor truck camper was stick it in the barn to await major repairs. It has some bad water damage that formed over last winter, and I just haven't had time to tear into it to replace the wood with steel.

I got on my roof and checked all my calking checking for cracks and voids. Found a few and put the calking gun in gear and fix them all. 6 weeks ago put 6 new tires on my 1996 Allegro and tock a 500 mile trip DW loves the new tires says it rides great. Keep them shining

Start to winterize her, get propane, bring the stuff that comes in the S&B and put some wood under the tires.
Read my New Motor-Home magazine during breaks, :}

Didn't winterize her nor did I get propane, But we got the new CB hooked up and got the rear heater working (That s been on the list for a couple years now...) Its really loud. I started her (MH) up and got it to operating temp and turned it on and man the heat that comes out is unbelievable. I am not sure how many MH have that type or if they are even used anymore but I think it will work out fine. Never new they had them. Its like the water heater. All supplied by heater hose from the MH engine.
I will try today when I go to get propane. I think a great idea.
JMO,Tim

Did this the other day. I do not like the original cup holders on the doghouse so I quickly put this together. I like doing some woodworking but wish I had more cabinet making skills/tools. I took the tv out of the dash and plan to install a flatscreen in the future. I'd really like to put a custom cabinet in the space with a drawer on the bottom and a slide out tray where I can keep a small laptop to use for GPS.

I also installed a new car stereo with bluetooth capabilities. It is so much more convenient to not be holding a cell phone while talking to people (it's dangerous too!).

Well, we finally got her home. First freeze predicted for tonight, but we are hoping to skate by since we plan a trip next weekend to Arkansas. We need to replace the house batteries which won't hold charge & fail under load testing.

Shower re-do x2

So I initially repainted the shower with white plastic paint as it was pretty yellow:


Which turned out really good for about a year:


Then the yellowing began again... I was really not in the mood to tear out the whole shower and replace it... so I thought I would go with a darker color, show less dirt and give it a more tile look since it had the fake grout lines already. I think it turned out pretty well.

I also hated the curtain, so bought a SHUB shower door and I am very happy with it. Very easy to install. I did paint it a metallic color to match the other fixtures in the bathroom, as it was white.

Fired up the furnace to make sure it's working before we need it.

After the grey tank fell off! Removed the wheel-arch, trim and panel on the rear quater to work out how to rebuild some form of mounting for the straps that hold the tank on.

Started running rough and was hard to start "service engine soon" light on. flashed out the trouble codes and it referred to a "coolant temp sensor".

$13 later she purrs like a kitten and the dash is light free.
