Well we have made progress. We finally finished the painting of everything and I'm liking the color. It changes a lot according to the light. Paul did the water test and discovered only one small leak under the kitchen sink where they had removed an inline filter and used a compression fitting. He bought Pecora to replace. The new plastic sink arrived and it weighs all of maybe five pounds. But it sure is s pretty parchment color. We had bought a kitchen faucet stMenards at s tremendous savings. Though we would replace the old plastic/metal RV faucet. Just took it out of the box and it was humungous. And it required a two inch hole. Really ostentatious and ugly. So ended up with a plastic RV faucet from Amazon that matches the sink. Yikes! Can't locate a metal one anywhere. But it sure is Purty. We also changed out all of the old incandescent fixture for led fixtures, Remounted the microwave and range hood. Range hood setting are off and off and light loud fan and light loud fan. Deal with the switch later. I finished curtains for the four big windows. I'm really pleased with the bedroom ones, the dining and sofa windows not so much. Complications at the top with cabinets and my own screw up with cutting the length of the panels. I have to hang them with those ring clips and that won't look great. Oh well. Paul is finishing the install of the little stereo wall cabinet and tv. We actually don't watch tv, except YouTube and Netflix but maybe we can use s wi-for router to mirror our phones and look at photos or something. Next, sink install, clean up everything, put carpet tile in bedroom and stairs, lay grip strip vinyl flooring, reinstall the dinette and sofa. Prepare the bottom bunk for dog bed, reinstall all of the doors and drawers, and fill all of the cabinets with junk. Sorry this is so long. Will post s couple of pictures.

Lakota, you're right about stainless...it needs cleaning frequently to remain stainless. I have a refrigerator and microwave that are stainless, but to me they always look smeared; fingerprints, etc. The stainless RV sinks seem to be very thin, not quality. Saving weight would be their excuse. I have porcelain sinks at home. Love them...if you have good water. We bought s porcelain toilet for the trailer. Easier to keep clean.

Stainless steel RV sinks arent bad,, IF,,, thats a big IF,, you keep them wiped out and clean and avoid using S.O.S. pads to vigorously... But I myself prefer stainless in the kitchen because I have seen HOT coffee warp the plastic ones... and Bathrooms is almost 99% of the time plastic. I just replaced my bathroom sink and wasnt really that big of a job.   The secret to finding a good deal is checking Flea Bay AND Amazon,,, I had bought an RV product off ebay and when it got delivered it was in an Amazon package box,,, LOL,, and there are a lot of RV supply dealers selling their products online and can pick up at their buisness location if close by.

Rich, I do love them 98% of the time but when they cause chaos like yesterday, well...we were not feeling very loving as we got out the mop and bucket and took the rugs and dog beds to the basement to be washed. Especially after a long day working. :(

Russ, don't these dogs know we are doing all of this so they can go camping with us more comfortably?? Sheesh!!!!

Hi Tina, RV sinks in general seem pretty chintzy. The stainless ones don't look nice very long. The drains are also RV sized, so it's difficult to go residential for faucets or drains. This one looks really cool with the matching faucet. I don't expect it will look great in a couple of years though. Cooking shows make me hilungrier. Lol! But I love watching the British ones. There used to be one called Two Fat Ladies. They were a hoot. Rode around England catering events on a motorcycle with a side car.

Great that you have made such progress. I have never looked into plastic sinks, will need to replace the one in the project I have.  I'll do some looking on those now.  :)

I don't watch much TV either, but I do like to watch cooking shows. I'm a cooking show junkie. LOL

Heading to look at your pics now. Have a great day!  :)

You just have to love dogs 

Comment by M K Wilkie on May 26, 2017 at 5:04am
Hahaha! I guess so!! We were letting them out in their yard frequently. In about two minutes they were barking to come back in. Over and over. They are all eleven and over now and getting nutty like us!!!

LOL, karma and mad dogs is just something ya don't want to mess with.

Isn't that the truth Russ. The good news is the tub holds wAter even though it looked like it has a crack. Getting there is part of the fun right? The pride in doing things yourself your way and knowing what you have. Our dogs are really mad at us for leaving them alone in the house so much and no adventures to the river. Tonight they gave us s very bad surprise all over the kitchen and bedroom floors. They are really pissed. Just what we wanted to discover when we came in!! Good night!!!
