Well had the whole story written out once then lost it will try again.
Have moved into my Argosy. Was hoping to have it a little more finished but sob mh was falling apart . So I figured it would be better to move in then I can concentrate all my energy on the Argosy.
Still have a long way to go on the inside and outside.
Motor and tranny are sitting on the ground beside the Argosy. Will be rebuilding the original tranny and using the engine out of sob mh.Am in the process of getting motor ready to pull . Maybe will get it out this weekend.
Have pics of engine removal but was waiting to post until I have pics of engine and tranny going back in.
Inside is Ok.No flooring yet I have two bad spots by the door I need to fix before I do flooring .Have throw rugs down on plywood which is working ok for now.I got a great deal on a 100% cotton 5'x8' rug at Ross fits perfect in the front room going up the step to the cockpit.
No shower yet. can shower at my friends house so I am not stinky.
A little scared to try the shower pan again. Will cost about $350 for the right supplies. I will get tired of not having a shower and will attempt it again soon.
Good news is
water system works
water heater works
and 110 work
fridge works on 110 haven't tried lpg yet
Have installed a new china toilet. Small issue with it . I was so excited by the great deal at cw,$100, that I didn't pay attention to the measurements the toilet fits fine.Except If I wasn't tall I would need a stool to get to the stool.
The bed is very comfortable . Says a lot for 30+ year old foam.It even fits all three dogs and me.A little extra work to put up and down but as I alter my bedding to fit it will get easier.Also the small piece that goes against the wall I need to make some new ones I threw out the original ones because they were moldy . The correct fitting piece will make it a lot easier. Right now am using some round pillows and a scrap piece of wood.
I've got to admit there are times when I think I can't do this its to much work .But then that passes and I get back to work.I feel a connection to this mh. I have looked at others on the internet but I can't bring myself to give up on this one.I figure if I put the money into this one that I would spend to get another one, Airstream or Argosy of course,I should have a nice mh and I will know it from one end to the other.
I would be lost without Airforums.I really appreciate the time and energy people have taken to document there work and experiences.
Time to get back to work.
