I can hardly live with myself - throwing all these little guys out and it is so close to the holidays. But before you pass judgment I have been warning them all summer. Blame it on the economy.

Sir, you have my deepest sympathy; I too suffered as my AS also displayed dung-dunes in the duct work and vermindiums everywhere... I found the greatest hidden space to radiate odor is the freshwater tank basement; I hope you drop that ASAP and paint and seal the underside of flooring, spars and tank bay floor plywood areas... Beyond that, painting the undersides of galley shelves and countertop will inhibit more smells as will washing both sides of liners with the cleansers of you choice... Good luck to you.

Thumbs up No more rats nest!!!

I finished dropping the pan and cleaning out the under cavity this weekend. The plan now is to have a friend come over with a smaller welder and material. It looks like all of the outriggers will need to be replace and some of the main rail. Then its time for Por-15 install new floor section in back and start putting things back together. If it where only that easy. Winter has set in 14" last week see pic. with another 11" this Monday. No complaints here the weekends have been nice enough to crawl under the trailer. Life is good.

Colarado Weather is GREAT!

OK so it has been a while but things are moving along around here. I borrowed a pressure washer to clean the underside. I had so much fun I washed the inside as well. The smell is a little better. I am still fearing the interior walls will need to come down and replace insulation. But for now I am focused on frame repair. Most all of the outriggers are rusted on the bottom which leads to a problem of what is supporting the walls and roof? Not much. The floor is frowning. I put a 4' level across the floor to see how bad a drop it is. There is 1/2" to 3/4" drop from the center to the exterior wall. So what to do? I happen to have 9 outriggers laying around that will be welded in. I am also thinking of using angle iron welding to the top flange of the existing outriggers, then drop down at an angle and attach to the frame? Oh and before adding any new support I will level the frame and then lift and support the edges. I might go as far as lifting the edges more than level and then weld in new riggers and angle. Any words of wisdom? So tomorrows plan is to get everything level and prep-ed for welding.

Question on outriggers?

I am not moving forward as fast as I would like. But that is OK I am not in a big rush. I didn't get any feed back on my approach to the bow on the edges of the trailer. Has anyone had to beef up the outriggers or will the replacements everything level?

You can buy outriggers from Out of Doors Mart for about $15 each. I've got a box of them out at the Safari, and for the life of me I can't remember if the outer end of then has the curve. I think they do. But I won't be back at the Safari for a week.

The first thing to make sure is will the tanks work for you. I am not sure personally but someone out there will know. I can tell you that the water tanks on my 72 and 75 are the same. The black water tanks are not. The tank in questions comes out of a rear bath configuration. Let me know if they will work. If so I am heading to Oklahoma mid April I would be able to get them at least that far. I don't have a water pump. They aren't all that pricey. I would suggest going new.
