It's just a plain atwood water heater. You have to light it from the outside. Main reason it is the same size as the old one and I can use the original aluminum cover not the white one it came with. I guess I could of upgraded to a auto light, but we don't use it two much so going out to light it is no big deal, plus it was a little cheaper that way.

Thanks, That is my plan. I don't want an auto light, they seem to need 12v to light. I a big believer in the KISS principle. It is good to know that I can use the original cover. Adios, John

Did you resolve the dining table up front issue? I saw a pic on this site today of a "Planet" Air (AS). He used a wall mounted swivel swing-away hardware with a narrow table on it. I'm impressed with your AS remodel. What did you do with the water line that goes from the kitchen to the bath? On my '70 Ambassador it runs under the goucho (where you now have the side dining. But it seems your tub may be on the street side and mine is on the curb side. Guess if I want to do something different with that area I must move the pipe.

Working on the New black tank I got from Inland RV.

It has a flange around the top. So I have decided to drill holes every 4 inches and screw it to the subfloor from underneath. Then run 2 support straps as well. Then install the new pan I made. The old one was rusted out and I'm can't believe I didn't drop the tank when it was full!!!!!!!

The new pan will support it like the old one did. So I'm pretty sure this thing is going to be solid. I'll take pics tomorrow of my progress.

Well, today was a very broken up work day so I didn't get what I wanted done.

But here some pics of the bathroom and what tile I'm am using for the counter top. Tomorrow I hope to get all the wall panels cut out and put in and box in the cabinets...

I got the holes cut out for the toilet and vent for the black tank. And marked on the black tank. I need to got down to the local rv guy and get a new toilet flange to mount the toilet on with.

And I also need to pick up a fiberglass kit to put the flanges on the new black tank...

I have 3 good longs days of work coming up.

Where did you get the tub and wall panel for above the sink? Are they from the newer model AS? They look custom due to the curves. Just curious

Mary

Original stuff that came with it. I just got a kit to paint the tub/shower and some spray paint for plastic for the wall unit.

Ok, Got the bathroom walls up today, pocket door, and all the parts for the closet cut and stained. They go in tomorrow. Also Get the the last wall section up buy the fridge and get it in place...

Man tracing those old wall peaces doesn't mean they are going to fit...

Well I got the closets in, the fridge in place and the frame for the front "L" shaped couch in. Lot of work building from scratch. Plus I designed as I went. Not always the best way to do things.

I have roped my neighbor into doing some small stuff like putting in lights and the new batter box. He will help tomorrow. It will save me some time. He has been putting the new fitting in the black tank I got from Andy.

I will try to post pics tomorrow... 4 more days, then I'm suppose to be on the road.... We will see....

I'm excited to see pictures of the L-shaped sofa frame, we are doing the same on our 68 Ambassador. I'm going with a stand alone table that can be taken outside and used with a couple of vintage camping chairs.
