Thanks for the Props Guys!
The transmission should be on the truck headed this way this morning. Fingers crossed they don't drop it or the ball.
My wife was discussing her required home upgrades, since I just got a big one for the MH, and we decided to put wood flooring down on the entire bottom floor of our home. Since we already has real wood flooring in the Foyer and dining room she has decided the wood color is too light. So it come out! Well, the dining room is barely used so that wood is almost new still. And guess where it's going when it gets pulled up? Yep! I'm going to re use it in the Motorhome.
The Motorhome can sure use a new floor!
You see, our Big Girl has been our base camp for our Adventures over the last 20 years since we bought her, so the carpet has seen it's better days.
If you look hard enough you'd probably still find sand from Scuba Diving in Key West, Arkansas mud from Kayaking the White and Buffalo Rivers, Utah grit from rock crawling in Moab, Thorns and stickers from West Texas Dirt Bike Rides, Granite dust from Mount Rushmore, Moss from the hiking in the Dells of Wisconsin, Salt from Bonneville Salt Flats Races, Wine spills from Oregon Beach Sunset Parties, Ect ect ect in the cracks and crevases.....
Gosh, I just realized that's only a few of all the places and things we've done with our Motorhome! Brings a tear to my eye thinking about all the good times she's taken us to! Looking forward to being able to do those long trips again.
Since the fuel prices have gone through the roof we've limited our camping to local campgounds and off roading within a tank of fuel. With this new transmission and dropping fuel prices, we should be able to take her cross the Country again and do the fun stuff that's out there.
Having a wood flooring will make it a lot easier to clean up. And it will give me an excuse to toss out the fold out couch, since it's never been slept on as a bed. (Other than my occasional Afternoon Naps in the Shop!) I'm going to replace it with a pair of wall hugger recliners. The MH recliner goes too so I can build a new TV cabinet for the wall in front of the Recliners. The flat screen Smart TV will rise up out of the cabinet top and I'll put an electric fireplace in the front part of the cabninet.
Like I said, We've had the Old Girl paid for for a long time, and we've used her a lot. I replaced the gas engine at 85,000 miles. So she due for some serious upgrades other than the required maintenance. (It had 16,000 on the clock when we bought it second hand!)
I would give you a list of what has been replaced or redone since I bought it, but you'd get bored reading the 10 page list.
I'll post up some updates as the upgrades get done!
