I have found the safe, just not the millions it was supposed to be guarding!
Bummer... I couldn't get the pics to load. It sounds really nice. I am anxious to see it!

Probably why it's taken me so long to post any pictures. Not very successful at it!

Peter is right about the pex. I had a terrible time getting access to all the pipes. When I replaced it I cut and fit 3 or 4 or 5 pieces together and marked then exactly how they went together then removed them, put them up on the workbench and crimped all the pieces together in a sub-assembly. Then I installed the assembly in palace in the coach. Sometimes I could do it in such a way that I could get a crimper in place to connect the sub-assemblies together other times I just used a shark-bite. I plumbed both of the houses I built for myself. The houses were easier to plumb than the MH simply because you never seem to have enough room to work.

Your coach looks great! I hope my upholsterer does as good a Jon on ours. We finally went with a dark brown "leather" on the sofa and a kind of butterscotchy "leather" on the chairs and dinette. The upholstered walls I am redoing with some reproduction Swiss army blankets that are kind of tan with the single wide red stripe. The countertops I finally ordered last night. I am doing a actual slate veneer that is 1-2mm thick. Just wondering if I should remove the existing Formica from the countertops first or glue it on top.

The trouble installing the pex is kind of why I decided ,to just have the existing system repaired in place for now. In the future perhaps I will remove some furniture and replace it but not until it is in awful shape.

Thanks. I'm sure yours will be fine as well. What I had the most difficult time with was getting the new dash cover to fit/look right. Oh well. What a good day today. Spent the day smoking a brisket and putting the refurb furnaces back in the MH. Also ordered all led's inside and out. Happy, happy, happy

Dash cover? Now I am super curious as I thought I am to be cursed with a pink dash forever! Can I get an up close pic? Also did you have the cockpit chairs recovered or did you get new ones?

To reupholster the dinette cushions, the sofa with the arms and doors underneath, and the chairs was $1160 + fabric. We got the "leather" at Joanne's with discount coupons really cheap. Now to figure out if I can salvage the cockpit seats or just get new ones.

Here is the sealed dinette. The color is what I had hoped.
