The gutting is going pretty well.  I am using the camera phone to take pictures of wire locations and connections as I pull out the lights and get the wire out of the way.  That way I don't have to guess on what wire went where. LOL

Found a couple of wires that had been stapled right through the actual wire.....I will be fixing that. ;-)

The bathroom shower floor is a fiberglass molded unit, and there is a large crack right down the width of the floor.  Not sure what I'm going to do about that yet.

So, here's a couple of "gutsy" pics.  Looks horrible...but my future vision is clear:

That's all I can do for today.  My Pops says he has a 5 gallon bucket of roof coating/repair for RV's, so I'm heading over on the way to work to look at what that is to see if I can use it on this roof.

Have a great day everyone!!

Tina, yes! Take lots of photos of everything. And label everything you can; especially electrical and plumbing. Blue painters tape can be your best friend later. It looks like you have some real wood in yours. That's great. We have flake board and it is FLAKY!! Onward!!!

You are coming right along, Tina. Pictures are a great thing to have, now, for the rebuild, and for ALL the stories on how hard or easy parts of the restore went. Keep posting, I was beginning to feel all alone with all the tearing out and no one else seemed to be going through it too. LOL Misery loves company.
