My question is: is it possible to replace only the damaged portions of the sub floor or is a shell off necessary.? I canít seem to find a thread on a shell off on an airstream MH. Thank you!
Take a look at Bella's thread...

Cliff, thank you very much, i just drew a sigh of relief...however if there are evident signs of water infiltration we will take it from there.
Ciao!

Can anyone tell me where the main wiring runs through the coach. I have a direct short on circuit 1, purple wire. Does it run along the roof?

Yes, there is a main bundle that runs down the center of the roof and branches off as needed to various locations.

There are rivets holding the center panel in place but once the rivets are removed you pull down on the center of the panel at one end and work your way to the other end. Best to have at least two people involved when performing this task.

Looks good

As a suggestion you might consider coating the wood with a good quality spar varnish. That will help keep it from rotting away, especially since it is open to the outside through the fridge louvers.

Donít mind the construction mess.

Also installed the replacement exhaust fan in the bathroom. Had shipped all the way from Australia. Almost identical from the original Dometic GY 11.

Hi,
I am also following this thread. Is your rear bedroom original or did you modify the layout? I am asking because i want to move my mid twins to the rear and the bathroom to the middle. Is yours a 28ft? Would you mind posting photos of the interior?
Thanks very much!!
