getting ready for spring more restoration

We got the new black tank from inland installed here is a photo of my husband fiberglassing around the fillings.

We ended up needing a new thetford valve and new part that the hose attaches to. We got them from vts. We also had to get a new closet flange (toilet floor flange) because the old had the threads rusted off. here is the floor and cut out before we installed black tank.

Well it's been a while since I last posted but we are waiting for parts right now.
We got the new toilet from VTS it's a sealand travel lite high toilet. Looks very well made. We tried to use the old floor flange but the threads that go into the black tank were rusted off. So we ordered a new one from VTS (it's on backorder) We looked for a threaded flange everywhere but only found that sealand makes them. We tried to make the old thetford valve work but it was broken and not usable so we...

The fridge is burping right now, and let me tell you it wasn't easy getting it out.
To start out we knew there were 4 bolts in the floor you can see from the outside compartment. We also knew there was an L shaped piece of aluminum on the side that held the counter top to it. We removed the overhead cabinets and the cabinet on top the counter. Then we got the side piece off and the counter up and...

update, a little more work done

Posted 01-03-2009 at 08:00 PM by dreadydreame

Getting it in was not an easy job. We realized it was either try to get it in in one piece by removing the belly skin and getting the skin up high enough to slide it in like some full monti's have done here. or cut in 2 and have a seem somewhere. After starting to remove the belly skin to the right of...

so much work getting done

Posted 12-23-2008 at 06:26 AM by dreadydreame

Since my last update I have painted the frame in the back with por 15 after using marine clean and metal ready on it. We decided to go with regular plywood because the treated wood we bought was a little tiny bit too thick and I read on the forums that the chemicals will eat away at the aluminum. We painted the wood with por 15, and it is cut, we just need to make sure the back end is not leaking at all before we put that in.
