Update 34.5

We have the 34.5 washed and have been cleaning the inside ton of work you all know that. Engine started and runs great I did not see that coming fuel tank is out has a leak.
Did see that the back up camera works as does the flood light how cool is that thing.
No brakes yet but did drive it around the yard slow. Rear air bags holding air been 5 days.
Heater hoses dripping next to the propane tank.
Next pull the Ac units up top and replace the seal and caulk the vents and what ever needs caulking.
Had some water dripping inside.
I'm still a happy camper and find my self looking for more AS,MH. Yes It's that bad.

Hans, doesn't matter whether you park it level. The roof itself will likely not leak. The leaks will come in the holes: lights, horn, a/c, antennas, windows. The windows seldom leak *if* the drain channels allow the water to get out, that's what the little slots are for (which are supposed to have plastic covers to keep the bugs out.) Replace the Schlegel channel for the front windows so they slide easily, be sure to get it from someone with fresh stock. No glue in the channels for that! Get *all* the old caulk out before you use new. Polyurethane (both the stiff kind and the 'self-leveling') will be your friend. Eternabond as a last resort.

Took our '76 31' LY on her "Lucille" maiden voyage this past weekend. After learning how to tighten up the torsion bars it wasn't a bad trip. Rained a lot in Michigan at the races. Duct tape helped with window leaks until I get new gaskets for the Vista Windows.
