Great idea!
Once we get them cut to length, i will post more about it.
including the hangers used, and the sliders.
They are not "room darkening", which is fine for us.



Today is hook up the new dash Heater core day.

Yesterday I refilled with propane, changed out 2 dead marker light units, and bought an eraser wheel and plastic scrapers. Today I will start removing the old decals on the MH in preparation of getting it ready to be repainted. If I can get the decals off it will save us $2-3000.

I'm sure I'm going to forget a few things and it wasn't done today but over the last few weeks.
Radiator and air to air removed, steam cleaned and painted. Engine breather tube extended. All pulley and idler bearings replaced and fan bearing grease fitting extended. ( Cat 3126b ). New belts. Some new hoses. Lower rear 2 inch coolant pipe sand blasted and painted. Over $1000 Canadian for a new one. Valve set done. Fixed a few leaks. I had this work done at Kenworth.
In the process of making a tray where my spare tire used to be so I have some place easy to store my stinky slinky.
Just resealed the front clearance lights. Now I'm starting to remove all oxidation in preparation for Rejex coating.
Want to make sure all is good before we do a Maritime trip this summer.

Got all the interior lights changed over to LEDs,
Got the Front curtains up, using Howtel grade shower curtains, cost, 19.00

Got the dash heater core in, and now have heat coming out of the dash.
Put in a heater core bypass, and made the core housing easy to service in the future.

Installed the rebuilt Allison ECU that took a trip to Transmission Instruments and back.

The shiftpad lighting up was better than Christmas morning as kid!

Oldest Grandson & I are going to do a test cruise tomorrow.

Got a bunch of stuff done in the RV the last couple of days.
Front windshield curtains up, masse from hotel shower curtains saved many bucks
Completed All new interior LED lighting, installed.
Took the drivers door apart, Fixed the latch so it opens, and locks from the outside,
Got the heater core in, and working.
Got the dash put back together
Modified the radiator hoses to be able to isolate the heaters for service, or turn them off in the summer.
Cleaned up some nooks, and crannies. Seems a dried up mouse will not go through a vacuum cleaner hose.
Worked on the folding TV antenna. Thinking I might replace it the top half with an amplified antenna.
Got some new cabinet handles up, ran out, went to get more, seems they have quadrupled in price at the Lowes, and Home Depot stores, would have cost 130 dollars for cabinet handles, Amazon sells 25 for 28.00. Click image for larger version

Looks good. Can you or will you take a pic of your new curtains? I need or want to replace mine. I haven't been happy with them since I bought them.
Thanks,
Tim

Clean


ed the roof and resealed the entire passenger side of the roof. Removing all of the old tape and sealant was a PITA, especially under the refer vent. At least I know for certain that the roof is sealed for another season. Removed the AC shroud IOT find the model number since the next project is replacing both AC shrouds.


Honestly hanging out with my son in law on the roof made for an enjoyable day (The cold beers helped too).

Got 2 more Danes, and a terrier to fit in there too.

Be glad to post some picts of the curtains. Looks wise they are nothing great, but I got very little money in them, and they will not smell like mold, and mildew. and for the money, I can replace them anytime I want.
Have not figured the optimal length yet. I cut just above the floor, until I figure if I want them to hang, or lay up on the dash.

More than a year ago I put in a 12 volt television and blue ray player. But it kept blowing fuses so I got a little 120 volt inverter to use the tv.

I since measured voltages from 11.8 to 14.3 at the source and determined it was the over voltage that was blowing fuses.

So today I put in a 12 volt regulator that can take from 8-40 volts in and gives 12.2 volts out. I tested it with 11 to 14.3 volts in and it was very consistent on the output.

I put in a switched and fused line so I can cut the whole circuit when not in use. It will be much more efficient than the 12-120-12 volt conversions and my batteries will last that little bit longer.

Fun stuff

Finally got a few warm, dry days here in Missouri for me to get some new shoes for my '84 Fleetwood Prowler. Oiled the lug studs to make for smoother on/off of lug nuts. I'm now ready for Spring thaw and hitting the road with the old girl.


The tires the PO put on camper when he did a mild restoration was older 195-65/15, just to sell unit. I replaced with proper 205-75/15's and it raised it up about 2-1/2" for better clearance and hitch mounting.
