Allegro Restoration - Engine R&R

If you recall, my RV has been sitting for around 6 years with a bad engine. I bought it for basically nothing. The owner said everything works, and so far he has been 100% correct. He also said he put Stabil in the 80 gallons of fuel when the engine failed. But, the generator would not run unless I put the fuel supply into a 5-gallon container of fresh gas.

Installing Inspection Ports in Water Tank

I decided to write a short how to blog instead of a film strip. People can take their time to read and look at the photo's at their own speed. In the spring of 2013 I started working on the water system in "The Queen". The fresh water tank was just gross. The price for a new one was a little steep. So I figured if I screw it up I'll buy a new one. If I can make it work I'll save…
