Dave, since you're doing so much remodeling maybe you should consider adding one of these Bedroom mods to your coach

Brad,

Will propose it to DW and put you as the POC for questions or comments since we wont take my word about the physical and economic benefits.

Why on earth would you want any of those guys in your bedroom? I'll stick with my Jack Russell terriers, at least the worst they'll do is hump the pillow.

I forget what event I was at but I got to see the inside of that trailer personally. Definitely different and probably not for everyone

Ohh!! Now I get it.

All that white upholstery would not go with my grubby overalls and epidermis. We had a friend years ago whose mother lived in a house where everything was white, just like that. For some reason, after my first visit, she made me sit on a towel.

Bathroom fan

Well the old ones impeller was gone and the motor made a horrendous noise. It was cheaper and "easier" to just replace the whole thing. Got a great deal on a new on on Amazon....

The old one was put into stay! It was literally vulkuumed in. I had to use a razor knife on the inside, under the exterior and then beat it out with a hammer!

Once it was out, I taped around it to protect the area while I cleaned the old residue off.

As long as it doesn't leak it will have been an easy project... the hardest part was keeping my balance on the ladder.

I "found" two new ones in the 310 inside one of the cabinets and installed them. I personally think they are real stupid and doomed to fail. If you don't break the plastic handle trying to push it up, you will probably burn out the motor by not pushing the lid up...

Shower vent replacement

Finally got around to replacing the shower vent fan and the vent gasket seal for the grey water system. I wanted to do this before I redo the inside of the shower stall; painting back wall and re-coating shower pan. 2 hours up and down on the ladder an it was time for a beer!

Dave, looks good!
Did you read my stack mod thread? I made a little curved cover that goes over the vents... Protects the seal for longer.

Shower Pan repaint

Did the shower pan over the last couple of days. Turned out well. The epoxy coating is a bit finicky and shows every spec of dirt and imperfection. HOWEVER, it does still look 1000X better!

Here is the pan before I started. Ugly dingy yellow

I had enough to do the back wall as well, but failed to prep it. The shower stall had vinyl wall paper on the sides over luan. Had to take the light off to redo the vent and found out that the back wall is actually a sheet of plastic with the design printed/embossed on it. Will sand it smooth and paint it in the near future.

return fuel line help

I have a slight leak in the return fuel system. It is at a plastic fitting that transitions from rubber hose to hard pipe. Everywhere else there are hose clamps at these junctures. Does anyone know what purpose this serves other then a potential leak source? Or where I can get a new one? You can barely see what I am talking about in the below images with the red circles. It is a very hard to reach location so I thought I would ask before disconnecting and having fuel dump all over the place.

Thanks!

Very impressive!

I wonder how well the process would work on the plastic headliners.
