aboatguy,
I have the same type Tv Antenna but mine has a cradle on the roof that the mast sits on, I don't see it on yours. Doesn't it rattle?
We bought a Square Antenna that attaches to the window by suction cups and we get around 30 more channels from it. Its one of those "as seen on TV" but it works.
I bought and installed a Fuse-able link that is for my Rear Heater and it works again...
Installing the 4 new cam locks today on the engine covers.
Vacuumed the MH.
I putts all afternoon yesterday. Furnace came on once and the little electric heater didn't run much. I just opened the curtains on the S.Side and the Sun warmed her up quickly.
Watched a little TV and made a bunch of smokes.
Next big project is getting the P-Trap for the shower hooked Back up so we can use it. Hasn't been hooked up for years. It was that way when we bought her and didn't know about it for 4 years. I really don't think it was ever used, there isn't a mark on the enclosure. Glad I never had to take a shower in that time. What a mess that would have been.
I will have to re-install it blindly, I can just get my arm in the access cut outs and that blocks my View.
The Picture that show's it hooked up is just the P-Trap hooked up but not permanent, ran out of time/weather last season, so will have to glue it but have to wait till its a little warmer out.
Have a Safe trip to those on the Road,
Tim

Removed the range hood because it wasn't ducted to the outside anyway, and I'm 6'-6" and need the visibility to see what I'm cooking. It was in the way.

Fished wires to run a slave LED light tied into my over-sink light switch.

No light over the center of my living quarters, so I fished another pair of wires to feed one. Need a junkyard light to match the others and install eBay LEDs in it.

I had previously tied my passenger side 110V receptacles into my invertor, but the kids had to set the DVD on the overhead bunk. I moved the over-dinette receptacle into the cabinet and am adding a grommet so only the video signal and TV power cables have to show. Also adding headphone jacks and charger ports for the kids.

Previous owner added a giant residential microwave. It was too big for my EU2000i to run. I replaced it with a smaller 800W unit and moved shelves to take advantage of the larger space. Also adding more shelving inside the over-sink cabinet.


Got on the roof to look things over and it appears I have pinholes in the aluminum. Is Dicor metal roof coating the right stuff to use??

What did you do to your old RV today?

I got everything fired up today and warmed up a bit then started checking over my Pacbrake as it is not fully engaging. Have to check how much pressure I am getting back there as it sounds a bit spongy.
I have to say I just love being out in it again even if I can't go anywhere yet.

Try under the refrigerator and the near by seat.
My buddy John found his under there.

I did a quick circuit breaker this morning and was sitting there thinking maybe I should just drive it for a bit...not a 100 miler yet...but...go to Starbucks across town for a coffee or something but while I am sure I could get it out easy enough the getting it back in would be considerably trickier...praying for SOON!

Yesterday I used the City Water Fill to fill our water tank, this uses the normal water hose to fill the tank. After closing the valve it didn't shut off the water flow and the tank overflowed during the night. Today I set about fixing the problem.
I tried to remove the old valve but there was not enough room for me to separate the Pex lines from the fittings. I hit on the idea of removing the guts from the new valve and leaving the old valve body in place.
Worked great, I unscrewed the cover, pulled the valve apart replaced the parts. We're back in business. Attached is a photo of the damaged valve parts.

On my 1989 Chieftain, the water pump is located under the dinette set seat, the one nearest the rear.
