I've been reading your blog and posts for a while trying to catch up.

The stove mounts next to fridge on curbside. It's currently sitting in front of gaucho for testing this weekend.

As of 2 hours ago I will be workcamping sooner than expected. I now have to be ready by feb25th. Oh and move the family to our home in AL that week too.

OOPS! didn't catch stove. i read the post as oven on my phone. The stove vent leaked ruining the counter top. In turn the stove casing rusted out. PO replaced exterior vent and counter. They took stove out and used a camp stove next to sink. I'll have to use similar for the time being. I would like to put a recessed stove with flush cover back in.

I gotcha. I noticed the counter top and no stove. That's cool as you can put in a newer cook top when you are ready. Will be interesting to watch your progress. You probably know this- but I would re-seal every vent on the roof and around the top of the windows first.

Plan to replace every vent and sky light. They are currently frozen in a cracked open position. Unless cranks can be rebuilt.


Guess I should do the upper window seal. No leaks at the moment.

Ordering weatherstripping once I figure out something for window latches.

I mentioned that because a lot of folks jump into the interior redo , and then the leaks ruin it. I found hidden leaks when I pulled out the fridge, some flooring, etc. Best of luck to you in this project. 66 is a special year for me.

Today was cleaning and discovery.

Found the problem with some of the window latches. The plastic trunnion cracked in half.

Fixed the electrical polarity. I wondered what the light on access hatch was for.

Found the univolt mounted next to hotwater heater in service area. Missing small fuse, but appears in good shape.

I have the table by sofa working. It was frozen in place. I'll need to clean and lube the hinge. leaf is in good shape. Later will replace with hardwood.

Need to repair kitchen sink lines. Hotwater line broken. Cold disconnected.

Is the suburban furnace original to trailer?

The heater in mine mounts on the wood panel wall right inside the entry door. There was a gas line in the floor in mine. I removed all that as I will never use it.
The wall holes in the front are probably the antenna controller, that rotated the antenna that mounted on the front outside.I have that, but the antenna is gone.The plug looks like it went in the counter above the refrigerator, I have a hole there with a similar plug in it.Maybe for venting?
Interesting that your table is wood grained, mine matches the counter tops. Does yours mount right inside near the door? Mine does, but I sure wish it was across the room. Oh well.

Thanks. I found the gas line for the heater.

I assume TV antennae controller. That is mounted on opposite side. Need new bushings on exterrior and antenna, but control and mast are there.

Table is just inside the door. Makes for interesting egress if table is out. Counter tops were replaced due to rot I guess counter and table matched at one point.

Yes that table is interesting. Mine cleaned up great so I will be using it anyway. Sure is pain.
I bought two of the folding wood chairs to go with it. Try getting out the door with them there!
By the way on the opposite side from the antenna controller is my thermostat.

The thermostat in mine is gold, and looks to be original. I won't be using the furnance probably , as we use an electric heater when we need to. Been using it to work out in the trailer lately. I am struck for awhile as the snow is too high around the trailer to do much.
