Way to go McGyver!

Shower overhead exhaust fan meshed plastic disintegrated over last 18 years.

Had a piece of window screen leftover from another project, a little Gorilla Glue and a little time...

Is it possible to save the current fabric from the barrel chair? I sure could use it to repair my captains chair. A closeup PIC of the of the original material would let me know if it would work.

WVABeer,

I am not sure who would be selling the handle.

Perhaps contact Andy at Inland...

92landyacht,

More then happy to save the barrel chair fabric for you.

Here is a close up of the current "pleather":

Today was too cold to spend much time on "Katy"

The step wouldn't fully retract (backed into a concrete step with the stair deployed last October).

Deployed the step
Attached "come along" to a nearby tree trunk
Slowly cranked

And we have liftoff

All is well once again

Yesterday installed battery cutoff switches on the coach and starter batteries.
Coach:

Attachment 180316


Starting:

Attachment 180317


Turned both switches to "off", plugged into shore power and can operate all electrical systems.

Not worrying if the batteries are being improperly charged by Katy's original converter...Priceless!

Picked up a Schumacher XC103 30 Amp Smart Charger to maintain the batteries:

Oh My!


DW has decided to go a different direction in flooring.

I thought she wanted Golden Zebra Strand Bamboo engineered flooring from Lumber Liquidators...wrong!
She purchased Bottom of the Sea Carpet Tiles:

She found the company online "Lots of Carpet" and after talking to the sales rep in Georgia, she was sold.

She took the time to capture every nook and cranny of Katy's floor plan in order to determine the number of carpet squares required:

By her calculations we only need about 14 squares (36" X 36"), she purchased 18 in order to have some spares.

Turns out the carpet squares (including shipping to TN), is less then 1/2 the price of the bamboo. I'm onboard for the savings ($$$)!
Squares will arrive tomorrow.

I plan to lay down 1/4 plywood (glued & screwed) to the existing chipboard floorboard on Sunday.
DW will sharpen up her trusty carpet knife and install the squares in the afternoon.

Wish us luck!
