Finally decided to try to navigate my new driveway with my old RV. It went well for the most part.

Nice! I like the stained glass dog-themed cabinet door!

My furnace is half under the stove and half under the sink as well. My battery box is a bit farther down, though. They clearly built the cabinets around the furnace but as I said the PO was able to get it out at one point. It looks like the circuit board has been replaced - that's probably why he had it out.

I'm headed to NASCAR in a few weeks and need to make sure it's ready for a few days of boondocking. The chassis battery is toast and the relay for the air suspension is shot. House-wise I think it's in good shape though. Just need to get a good breeze through it to blow out the winter funk.

our furnace is half under the stove and half under sink sail switch side is against battery box which is right under sink....  excellent planning engineers -NOT-  oh and we subbed out actual house grade faucets etc.. nice.

we redid the entire kitchen area when we had to remove the furnace for a complete ream (mud duber nests in fan)... so  once the drawers are removed the entire face is actually held in place with long uber strong velcro.  hubs is a carpenter so slowly replacing the pleather and tops with oak (both bathroom counter top and main dinette table done too)...

The previous owner of mine cut the cabinet base slightly so the furnace can slide out. The door still covers the hole. Might be an option for you.

I also ran the genny, but need to pull and replace the SAIL switch onthe furnace which requires removing the face of the lower kitchen to pull the furnace out... and yea.. a task I was not up for doing at the end of the day....  and also need to replace the plumbing under the kitchen sink.. we jury rigged a repair on it last fall, but at the time had to make do with home depot supply stuff.. and finally found RV version at SANDS RV that will be OEM.   So while kitchen face removed.. yea that also on list...

Looking good. I do want to repaint at some point. The brown is old and tired. Now that Dead Metal is back home I can catch up on the maintenance. Ran the genny for a couple of hours for the first time in about 8 months. Ran both furnaces, too.

so first day in 3 weeks of no rain... oil filter changed, K&N air filter cleaned and oiled.. all wires hoses inspected, all grease points greased, inside vacuumed (dead Jersey flies), restocked non perishables, washed, replaced a couple pieces of vinyl screw cover which needed it..  didn't tire wet the tires as rain was then of course forthcoming...

Gone is ready to roll.. sitting on sand/clay.. so yea.. need some cr6 as well at some point.. I carry 4 pieces of 2x10 for the jacks when we camp.  and yes with the curtains closed I am where ever my mind needs to be inside of her...

Thanks Rich. I will need to bring in some QP to make a pad for it. It's sinking already. It can't go too far because we're literally on the top of a mountain - it's all ledge and rock with a few inches of soil over it. It can only sink so far. I grabbed some 2x12 from my dad's house and will be putting it under the ramps and stabilizer jacks.

And it does look nice tucked in there - like a campsite. I need to run some power to it next.
