12v switch, Eternabond, finally started the ol' girl today

Ok

So, no undercabinet lights for 12v switch. Had a paid holiday today (thanks Post Office for observing all 10 Federal Holidays!) and got a work buddy to come help with Eternabond tape.

Got that half done this morning, before sun started heating up roof to point of sizziling.

Finished up Eternabond this afternoon, and got the beast started. Found out that ol' girl doesn't appreciate going so long without being started. Won't repeat that again. I have a leak somewhere in the Hydroboost system, reservoir tank completely empty. Something else to look for when I get underneath for change out transmission pan.

Anyhow, letting everything cool down, and will get Airstream out in the neighborhood for a spin tomorrow and get it up on ramps to change out transmission pan. Will go ahead and get a coat of Henry's Elastomeric roofing paint before getting engine fired up.

All of my ceiling lights are on individual switches.
Thanks, Derek

Week of Vacation

So,

Got Eternabond completely on roof, but weather not cooperating for outside work last half of this week.

Inside I go. Got the kitchen wall about as clean as I'm going to get it, so hopefully tomorrow I'll be installing the flexible 'steel-look' tiles in there, and get kitchen back together.

Pulled shower control, took some doing to find the type I was wanting, not to get all of the fittings for PEX. Removed all of the towel bars in the shower, and sanded walls. Will work on existing shower door removal, as well as see if I have any leaks at drain while I have lower panel out. Found a shower door that will fit in existing opening, one more project on the list....

At some point, a previous owner decided that glossy brown paint was the way to go with the bathroom area. Guessing they decided against that paint, because about 1/4 of the way through, they just stopped. 1st coat of primer, will get 2nd coat tomorrow. If it dries quick enough, will go ahead and get some of the flexible tiles installed in there as well. Hoping to get coach good and leveled and get Urethane down on sub-floor before heading back to work next week. Know I'll have no time to get inside of motorhome after work, plenty of time for Urethane to dry.

Will post pix of progress. Hoping that if Mother Nature deems me worthy, I'll actually get on roof, remove Kool-O-Matic, get Fantastic Fan installed and 1st coat of paint. WHEW! It's gonna be a great weekend!

Thanks, Derek

Great progress!

How did you get the shower control valve out? Did you pull that wall?

Dave, in the closet next to shower area, there is a lower panel. Several screws along back edge, and lower edge. Pulled it right out.

Once that protective wall was removed, I went into shower and started getting rid of existing control. Pull the twist knob, there will be a lotta screws, the two larger screws are what holds it all together. Ended up cutting some of the PEX to get all of the shower bits removed. Not having any luck with the fitting for shower hose. Local Hardware/Plumbing store should have what I need though, hopefully.

Read through the directions for 'tile'. Says if paint is fresh, wait on tile installation for at least 2 weeks to be certain paint is dry. As warm as the sun gets my motorhome during the day, I hope to be installing tile next weekend!
Thanks, Derek

In our 350LE that switch and outlet are for a stand alone hot water dispenser. Our's still works, but will trip a breaker when the heat pump and microwave are on.


Regards,

JD

I'll try and get some pix of shower water control valve area in bedroom closet area. It was really a simple removal.

Here's a question for all Airstream Motorhome owners

Has anyone replaced their window blinds? My 345 has wooden mini blinds that are ok, but really could stand either a thorough going over, or replacement.

I really like the dual pull down shades where one section is light filtering, and other is black-out.

Guess I've got some exploring on the internet ahead of me.

If anyone has done any type of replacement, please let me know.

Thanks, Derek

I'm looking at those double roller blinds as well...there are a couple companies that make them...electric versions as well.
http://www.automotionshade.com is one of the brands. Does our valence cover a 4" mechanism? Anyone else have these?

Don't know about you SebasSF, but I really don't have a 'valance'. The upper part of mini-blinds is hidden by upper cabinets. There are side valance's on mine that keep the mini-blinds mostly in place while traveling. I've found that if anyone is in the seats behind the captains chairs pretty much prefers having the blinds pulled all the way up, so they can see better though.
Will keep searching for the day/night shades. Price-wise for now, this upgrade will be delayed for a few years....
Thanks, Derek

Ok, so yesterday (Thursday) I was told by supervisor I had to work the Saturday of my 3-day weekend off. Reminded supervisor that schedule is required to be posted on Wednesday, not Thursday after I leave building to deliver mail. Also said I had made plans for entire weekend (WORK on Airstream).
Then went online last night to discover I have to pay a $256 impact fee, PLUS $78 license fee to get valid tags on Airstream.....

GUESS who's working their day off tomorrow???? lol
