so do you think you will still have a chance to get it out this year? i would think the season is a bit longer down there for you. so when it comes time to get it out its time to sit and just relax huh?!


We do our RVing mostly in the winter and spring. We will spend most weekends in the Palm Desert away from the snow and ice, playing in the hot springs feed spa's. Then there are some yearly things that we do in March and April that are off-road and RV related.

love everyday like you won the lotto.

I am curious to see what you did at the edges of the diamond plate. I am thinking that roll in the front must have quite a bit of tension on it?

For right now I just have a few screws holding it in place for now. Since its aluminum, it shapes pretty easy, I left my jack support in place over night and will remove the screws today. There is a support beam that runs side to side about 6" from the seam between the two sheets that I will screw to every 4" or so, along with the screws at the seam.

Have to take the DP back off.......it seems that when I "tightned up" the front nose after rebuilding it, I went a little to far and have a slight arch to the underside of the C/O. The arch is enough to make it so that the DP wants to wave or buckle and does not want to sit flat. No big deal....just time....live and learn.

Started taking the back apart to replace the bad wood this week, to find out that the TC is to close to the ground for me to replace the bottom plywood plate that is rotted. :sad0016: So I will do some replacing to the point that I can put the tin back on and mount the rear jack plates. So that I can pick it up far enough to get under it to cut out the rotted plywood so I can replace it. I can say one thing........there are ALOT of hidden screws holding that bottom plate on! :scared0011:

Today was start on the roof along with working on the back. I chipped off the old caulk around the ladder and other various holes and bolts that have been done over the years. To my joy and surprise EVERY screw and bolt that I removed was nice and shiney with not a hint of rust. I also removed the useless TV antenna that didnt work and it appears that the sat dish will take its place nicely. While doing this the DW was inside with a steamer removing the horrible wall paper that was in the kitchen.....things are moving along, slowly, but moving.

OK............did some more work today, the weather is nice and the back is doing pretty good. Awhile back I removed 90% of the tin that was on the back to make sure that there wasnt any more rot that needed to be taken care of. So today I started to paint and reinstall the tin back on the TC. All I have to say is CHEESSIE......VERY CHEESSIE!!! So Here I'm plugging along puttin the tin back on when I notice that the seems are NOT lining up with the sides! :M So I end up havint to removing all the tin that I just installed and here is why. In the name of CHEAP!!!! instead of sliding the tin into the slot the 3/8 of an inch as it was designed, they only slide 1/8 of an inch into the slot to save a grand total of 3 1/2 inches of tin on the TC, that didnt have to be used...........wow BIG savings. CHEESIE...VERY CHEESIE! OK that rant is over, I guess sometime in the future I may have to fix it....or not, we'll see.
So I cut the rotted plywood and framework on the drivers side today and started to replace/rebuild the lower corner...progress so far.

Oh yea........a pic of the back with the painted tins on it. I have to finish the repair on the drivers side before I put the tail light tin back on. The piece of tin that was on the bottom was REALLY torn up and ripped badly ao that is going to be replaced with diamond plate when I'm finished. I take the door on and off when I work on it, its pretty light and I hold it on with 4 screws when its in place.

Fixed the lower/rear passenger side today, mounted up the rear jack plates and put it up on "red" so I can cut the bottom plywood plate off and replace it tomorrow. I like the look!

Today I finally finished the back off mid-day, and the DW started the sealing. Its coming along and the trim pieces are starting to go on, so I think the next posting after this will be in the middle of Nov. We are leaving on vacation early next week and I wont be able to work on the S&S for a bit.

Finally done with the structure rebuild and the "new" look! I still have to put the jacks back on, I havent decided if I am gunna paint them or not yet. I'm holding off on the reseal of the power vent, since we want to upgrade the fan to a fantastic fan and it doesnt have any issues.
