It's been awhile, but fixes have been progressing at the rate of Methuselah.
Mostly because of my lack of skills and knowledge. How could plumbing be so complicated you ask? It's actually not. My rig is 21 foot - there's a couple of short runs and everything with a connection is accessible. A couple of back twisters but only because I don't move quite like I used to :-) For Lakota's young buck in the WalMart parking lot it would be a breeze! And, seriously, my…Continue
Having a blow out at 65mph is never fun,, in most cases, but can be quite exciting if your a road junkie, There is no feeling like white knuckling the steering wheel,, puckering up so tight you can taste your unders and yur lip is so curled it looks like a cheeto. Not to mention the fear in the ole eyeballs, Now if you have passengers or pets,, then they are doing a death grip on the grab handle or arm rest and are on the edge of a full blown spastic release of their bowels, Animals, just…Continue
Mornin gang, I have been absent for a while too busy updating my latest RV. While I don't currently own a good "old" RV (its a 2006) that's all I had for like 40 years lol so I feel right at home here.
MY SOLAR UPDATES
So, we do a lot of dry camping and in my last RV I had 400 watts or solar which kept my four deep cycle 6 volt golf cart batteries well charged. However, in my latest 2006 29 ft, Class I initially installed 470 flat rooftop solar watts (with…Continue
Things that still need to be done:
1. Replace the ball hitch and move the jack forward. This year before using.
2. Repaint the frame and tongue. This year.
3. Finish scraping and repainting the roof. Hopefully this year!
4. Remove the inside shelf and overhead cabinet and finish the ceiling, then put everything back together. Maybe next year.
5. Refinish the inside paneling or replace it. Maybe next year while the shelf and cabinet are out.

As my wife was laid up for several years I built this access ramp in 2015 so she could get in and out of the camper. It bolted onto the steps and came apart so it could be stowed inside while moving. Now that she is up and around we no longer use it.

She's dead fred.
Came over Loveland pass, no problemo and down through Denver heading home and east from Southern California on Interstate 80. Misfiring started in Nebraska and plenty of oily smoke out the exhaust.
Well not good because I'm headed for home in northern Wisconsin.
Walmart, oil and prayer.
35 quarts of oil later I am back, a little shaken and tired as the leaves are coming fast on the trees here in the north.

At the same time I replaced my Dad's hand-built 12v transformer setup with a shore power supply to keep the battery charged and run the inside 12v lights when we were camped in a place with electricity.

In April of 2014 after the roof had leaked and finding the rafters had been pushed down by the snow load over many winters, I pushed them back into place and fastened them there, at least in the center. The front has to have the cabinets removed and the rear the shelf you can see here. I hope to get to that…Continue
