Been meaning to thank you for the info on using krylon fusion for painting plastic. I will make sure from here on out that anytime I paint plastic, I will use Krylon Fusion.

I keep picturing the zillion empty cans you used to paint the interior of your airstream using krylon fusion.

Thanks also for the info on the outside shower and painting it with Nickel Shimmer.

Dan

I used Fusion on my Overlander bathroom sink. It came out nice and clean looking and has been used for almost two years...

I painted my 66 TW sink using Porv whitecoat. I wish I had used Krylon fusion.

Rob installed the dishwasher and microwave cabinets, which he had to modify heavily in the installation. He is refs using the cabinets one at a time and the hickory is beautiful. We had a frustrating week: the new stove we ordered from Michigan arrived completely destroyed. We are waiting for UPS to pick it back up for return. Anyone have a 22" stove to sell?

All, is there a common source for the leak which ends up rotting the floor just inside and to the right of the front door?

I blame it on the aluminum over the step. Splash water can penetrate the panel and sit on the wood. I enlarged the panel and sealed it to death so hopefully it will not happen again.

Suhweeet!!! Is that a dishwasher made specifically for RV's? I've never seen one (I guess I haven't looked), but with your crowd, it's a great thing, I'm sure!

Oh, we love the dishwasher. We have one in our 29' too. (we are selling the 29' as soon as this 32' is mostly complete.) it saves time, water, hot water, and gray tank space. It is super quiet and does a great job washing the dishes and makes us choose real dishes over paper. It also stores the dishes, so there's no loss of storage room.

As far as leaks, I learned fairly quick that it's not worth the effort to try and locate a specific leak but I take a weekend and scrape out the old and I use adseal for the larger seams and acryl-r for the small seams around the windows, panel seams, doors etc. and I do the whole trailer. I buy it from airstreams website. I also use rustoleum oil based white paint on the roof which keeps it cool and helps seal around rivets on top. I will say though that there are a few areas that are more critical than others to seal. Make sure your vents are sealed on top. Make sure that if you have an awning that you seal where the rail is attached to the roof and it's rivets. That was where my 89-29 was leaking down onto the floor to the right of the door. Also, people ignore the lower rubrail and it must be sealed on the top. I use a small bead of adseal on the top of it all the way around the trailer. I always use blue tape on both sides of the bead then remove it. It looks pro that way. You don't ever need a very big bead. Most people use too much. When I was replacing some sub floor I watched water pour in through the lower rubrail and it soaks the insulation in the belly pan and the bottom of the subfloor stays wet and rots. I'm not listing everything but some other areas are adseal on the window eyebrows and acryl-r on the sides and bottom. I run a small bead of adseal on the top of the top beltline rail because that is wear the panels over lap. It wouldn't hurt to do the bottom beltline rail as well to keep it out of the rivets that attach it. My pet peeve is not glopping sealant of any kind all over and using to much so that's why I tape.

Everything you do looks amazing. I thought about the dishwasher, but it's just the two of us and I wasn't sure if I would be getting a little too crazy by adding it, but it might be worth it in lower water consumption and grey water tank space. What brand is that?
