Replace rear carpet with hardwood bamboo flooring
Replace front carpet with ?
I've had some work done on my '94 LY (also Diesel). My question is where exactly did you mount the 23" HD TV? I'm thinking of removing the front TV and mounting an LCD-type HDTV on the curb side, just above the icemaker.
As for flooring - did that! The carpet was really old and tired, so we had it ripped out and the whole floor redone with a wood-grained linoleum that looks and feels just like the snap-in hardwood flooring - except that there are no seams. The rear bed, dinette, sofa, free-standing ice-maker and the three chairs were removed. The subfloor thankfully was in excellent shape. The subfloor was covered with 1/4-inch plywood (screwed and glued to the subfloor). A template was made of the pieces that were needed (one piece from the bedroom (which is slightly higher) to the very front. The linoleum was cut to the template, then glued in place. Quarter rounds and trim (oak, finished to match the cabinets) were put in. The driver's flooring (that part at the driver's seat) was done using heavy rubber matting.
I should add that if the tires have a manufacturing date of 5 years or more, change them, irrespective of tread left, as they deteriorate internally. I had the unpleasant experience of having an inside rear tire blow out on me enroute to Bozeman. I ended up buying 7 new tires (included the spare), and the insurance covered the damage to the side of the motorhome - the force of the blowout ripped open the panel between the rear wheel and the genset, as well as broke the fender.
Your repair experience kind of mirrors mine - toilet, batteries, generator board, roof, front radio. In addition, I have the shorepower modified to go from 30-amp to 50-amp.
