Very slowly I am removing parts that had issues and replacing what I'm able. The biggest issue right now is the dry rot from the stove condensation leaking down the backsplash. Next are the windows after I replace the water lines with pex and put the port side back together. You can follow my progress on YouTube...

Please feel free to leave comments and or suggestions. Thank you.

Your welcome Randall. It is a lot of work and I found a new leak last night during the rain. Always something lol. I am glad that thsee videos can be helpful, that was my intent along with documenting my own progress so I can look back at the accomplishments I've made. Since the last video I have constructed a roof for my a/c and fixed a leak in the roof hood. I will try to get another video up soon showing this. First I'd like to find and fix the leak I found last night. DAP is a wonderful product ;)

Man that is a bunch of work Fred. Looks real good though. The videos are so helpful when someone is doing the same and figuring out what needs to be done and how to do it. Thanks for show'n.

Thank you Pat. I'm glad the video was good. That device does pretty well. I hope I get everything hooked up correctly with the weight distribution system. It's a pain setting it up but once it's set it's worth it. I just have to play with it until it is right. I had the helpers put in when my front end started bouncing around...not good. So, I hope to be on the road to my first destination by the 10th. I'll see how everything holds up on that journey. I've been living out of this rv for 2 months now and loving it. It's the traveling part that worries me, but there is only one way to learn...

Fred, some great progress. you're moving right along and the solar should do good things. glad to learn you're installing proper hitch and spring helpers on the rig too.  Video was good quality too.
