It’s been time consuming and a lot of work. Not difficult though. I’m glad to finally see the end of it, at least for now. Bathroom and floor inside the side door is next years project. The floor seems fine there for now.
There’s still that stale air smell but to a lesser degree. Probably ingrained in the walls and fabric after all this time.
One thing I noticed is that the foam doesn’t dry out even when removed.

Do yourself a favor and buy PEX tools. I have two crispers, one is the large handle type, the second is a small crimped designed for tight places. If yours doesn’t have a water heater bypass, you can make your own. If yours does not have an outdoor shower, you can install your own.

When I bought my 2000 Trail Lite new, R-Vision did not give the option of an outdoor shower. So I took it to Camping World in Kissimmee FL on my first trip out (only 3 months old). Sadly, they refused to put the outdoor shower inside the bathroom vanity in order to access the plumbing there. Instead, they placed it under the bed On the rear wall. For obvious reasons, under the bed was too low on the outside, especially if the campsite was sloped.

I put up with it for that one summer and counted all of the reasons why I had to take it upon myself to move it.

I bought the tools, measured the placement ten times, cut the hole once (trailer was still under warranty, and I probably voided it). Framed and sealed the hole, and Plumbed it perfectly the first time.

The old hole on the back wall, got expanded into a storage hatch that accessed under the bed. While I was cutting holes, I also put a long door under the bed (curbside) so that I could get chairs in/out easily.
