Hi Sharon, The sand was $105.00 and I rented a big compresor as mine would have taken me all week to do what I did in a day with this one, the rental was $95.00.

Inspirational as I am procrastinating welding in a bunch of repair outriggers here, good (and embarassing) to see seventeen of them done at once, bet it was satisfying too!!

I got to share this from experience; it's the fumes of the curing AFTER POR-15's carrier solvent has evaporated that is the worst part of using it; Next time I paint with it I'll be wearing a cartridge respirator against the fumes we get exposed to when applying the second and third coats...

Those pictures bring back memories . ..

Do you plan on building all new cabinets and the like inside or do you plan on reinstalling the old?

New wiring? Plumbing?

Hi Spiffy, Yes we plan on most everything changing except the bath and it will get a sink and vanity out of a newer AS. This one had twins, planning on a sideways queen, the closet, kitchen and living will be totally different too. Keep checking. I started the Por 15 today and will have pics on later this evening Thanks Marvin

Do you plan on adding any tricks (satellite wiring, video, built-in generator, etc.)?

Don't forget to enjoy the remodel journey - it will help when unexpected costs come or things don't work according to plan.

Not really adding much, just a coax for our dish and phone things like that, going to carry generator in back of the truck.

Ok, today was Por 15 day, I am glad this is over now I can get on with putting the subfloor patches down, the belly pan and banana rap and get on with the inside.

Marvin, Just had to relate a quick Por-15 story to you. Last month I had the rear belly pan down on the Argosy to fix a broken pipe and change the dump valves. Decided to Por -15 the frame while I was under there. I got all suited up with gloves, long pants, long sleeves etc. and was super carefull not to get any on my face. Or so I thought!. When I got out from under the trailer to talk to a buddy that stopped bye, He looks at me and says "Hey it's the freckle faced kid", I had about a thousand little specks all over my face That "Only time will remove"!. I ran in to the garage and grabbed a can of mineral spirits, and forced my wife to wipe my face down. (real healthy, I know), Got most of it off, but for a week or I looked like I had the Pox.
