PB Blaster 1 hr before work begins. I have yet to find an exhaust bolt that can resist after that.

I was able to get the propane back on line today . We have heat in mh now and the fridge works. I also put air in the airbags and they held all day. We took it to the scales on Saturday she weighs 15225. Now we just need to go transfer the title and get new tags and we are set. My next project is to get the sewer hoses waterhose and what ever else I need to take her on her first jeep / camping trip in march.

  • Checked date codes on the tires - Yikes! They're original ('89)!
  • Finished tearing out interior wardrobes and overhead cabinets that we didn't want (some were a little water damaged, and some we removed so we could reconfigure the floor plan to suit our growing family).
  • Found the Master Cylinder while attempting to figure out what's keeping my brakes from working properly.

For the rest of the week, until taxes come in:
  • Finish taking up carpet all the way back to the back bedroom.
  • Take out kitchen countertop (which is swelling from water damage), get ready to move sink so it's on back wall instead of angled toward the front of the coach.
  • Clean up the trash wood (cabinets, etc) outside - take it all down to the burn pile.
  • Start measuring for the bunks that are going where the bathroom sink, wardrobe, and fridge were.
  • Figure out how to cap off the old bathroom sink drain and water supplies (shouldn't be too hard).
  • Put boards up on the wall to hold up the bunks.
  • Get ready to frame in the front face/support of the bunks.
  • Frame in the new fridge shelf (going over the opposite wheel well between the shower and window, where the small wardrobe used to be).
  • Frame in the base for the wood stove which will hopefully be in next week. We like what Chad Leadbetter did, and plan to make ours much like his as you can see here http://youtu.be/r_11vGn73a8?t=22m21s, including the wood stove by the door and the desk next to it - where the dinette used to be. The fridge will sit up against the desk.
Next week, after taxes come in:
  • Fix the leaky roof.
  • Change our two twins into a queen.
  • Maybe replace the water heater with a tankless? The water heater was left full and unused as the camper sat for years and years... and now the water *stinks*. If we can find a good place for it, we can pick up a tankless at a reasonable rate (~$200).
  • Fix the brakes.
  • Replace springs on hydraulic levelers.
  • Get it inspected, licensed, and insured as our full-time residence!
  • Move back in!!!

I was thinking about a small wood or coal burning stove. Something easy to remove in the summer.
Interested in how the wood stove works out.

Yes Sir it sure does. If I had more time I would get more done. The kids want to go help next time. I have a list of easy things they can do to help.

A lot of people give luan a bad time for being cheap, however remember you are using a lot of wood. They use luan because it is light. If you go to something like plywood, you will increase the weight of the roof. You usually spend very little time on the roof, Why reduce carrying capacity and make it more top heavy?
