I recently made a "How-To" page for repairing and refinishing the screened window frames for my '73 Yellowstone.
If you'd like to see how they came together .... click HERE!
Just in case anyone was wondering, the work is still in progress on Diggity Dodge. I've had to limit my strenuous activities to stop burning off more than I put in as far as nutrition/calories. Being underweight is no fun and causes health issues too.
On to the progress...I have the kitchen wall almost finished with the Luan. Just a couple of small areas on the sides to cut and fit.…Continue
So sorry, I had a spelling error on the last post, it should read

Again a finders fee paid to who ever can find me one of the original Boater homes, made in 1986 under the names either Sport Highwave Boater homeor Spped King Boater homes.
I was in Banff National park in the Canadian Rocky's last weekend, and a 1976 - 78 fully restored GMC Motorhome rolled through the downtown area, and 40 years later it's still looks the best ever built motorhome, and still people just stop and…Continue

This one's been active since we got the LH2 (an Allegro '87 class A) and I've been working the bugs out of her. Fun, excitement, travel, drama it's all there.
Take a look and laugh and cry at the stuff we go through.
Have a good one and all the best to you....
First let me start by sharing that we all survived our first overnight camping trip! By we I mean my mother, the dog, the cat, and myself. Juno still has a long list of things to do, but we had water, fully working electric, a working toilet, good bedding, a fridge, and mechanically needed to put her through some paces so when I take her back they can try to track down the oil/transmission fluid leak (I think it's the former from the cardboard spots).…Continue
Got some good work accomplished today. Im helping a new neighbor in the small park here, put together an older Airstream T.T.,
A little back ground,,,,, the owner bought it in California,,, paid another friend to tow it from Ca. to Texas. The trailer was gutted out except the fried burnt wiring that suffered high voltage in low voltage wire. I.E. running 110/120 volts a/c thru 12 V d/c... not a pretty sight. Anywho... I got two main wire runs down the middle of the trailer from front…Continue

Does anyone know where this scrap yard was or is, and "Where", as we need to find out if possible. Or has anyone else seen any of these any where else, parked, or forsale ??Continue

A very productive day, considering it was triple digit and I being lazy till 2 in the afternoon.. I had to run a temp power line out to the power ped,, and after getting the RV plug (30 amp) wired in, realize the plug in on the other side of the ped is a 50 amp service, (there are 2 power plug boxes,, one on each side of a 4x4,, 1 being a 30 amp, and 1 being a 50 amp.), Duh,, so yea, I had a brain fert. So, back to the store to get a dogbone adapter,, a 50 to 30 plug, I get it all hooked up…Continue
I did a test run fitting the stove in a couple nights ago, and it fits level. No more sticking out from the bottom and it's a good tight fit that has no gaps around the edges. YEY! I did a little corner cutting today so it sits back more flush with the counter in the front like it's supposed to. Excuse the little pieces of wood on the wall there, they were just set there out of the way for a minute.…Continue
I'm glad to read that ya'll have faith in my trudging forward with this. My faith wains back and forth lately with all of the new opportunities that need a-fixin'. LOL
One of the progresses has been the kitchen counter top ready for a new pretty face. The new plywood is as level as it's going to get, I'm happy with it. Sooooo much better. …Continue

Ripping out all of that old carpeting under the sink/stove counter proved to be a real challenge...unlike the past challenges with this carpet.Everything in there was on top of it and either nailed or screwed down or both. Of course, rusted and tough to turn screws and nails that the hammer would not fit under to pry them up. Some areas had two layers of carpet. Grrrr...and those corners...OY vey!!
I believe I got it all, after a few scrapes and bruises. LOL
Here's what I started…Continue
Finally got my required and much needed services hooked back up, A person has to have cable and internet. I made the installers job way easy by having previously wired my own outlets. (having voids in the walls and floors helped). No dangly wires hanging out windows etc.
That was after getting the 5th broke down and moved from point A to point B. Backing into the spot the 1st time was beyond fun,,lol took 3 attempts, spinning in the gooey slippery Texas mud, and only final try, going…Continue
