Thanks Paul. I guess you are eager for the weekend! We won't be rolling out until Friday. I'll let you take a nap Friday evening after some good chow, a pie, and some bourbon (for you)

Jealous here...Scotty's pies look great, and when Lance is grilling it is always a treat.

It is a good feeling to be done with the floor and frame. After this trip I'll be compiling hours and dollars spent on Abby's rear floor replacement and front floor repairs.

Great job. You have been really busting it getting this done. Lance where did you stop the Marmoleum? I noticed the bathroom is the wood floor that you did a while back, which also looks great. It looks like it came off the show room floor.

Thanks y'all. I appreciate your comments.
We are out on the road now. Been driving for two days (14 hours) and we are still in Texas. Hopefully tomorrow we will be camping at 10,000 feet.

We are making a loop around the four corners states. No real plan other than to hit those four states.

I wanted to remove the center ceiling panel in order to do some TV/cable running (the one that runs from the front to the rear above all the lights and A/C; I believe it's referred to as the "dome"). I never did it because I was stumped (even with the factory service manual) to figure out how to remove that overhead track for the bathroom door. Is it possible to do without removing the beds and bedroom walls? If it is, then could you describe how to do it? Where are the "magic" hidden rivets or screws? If it requires complete removal of the bedroom, then I'll just wait until I do a similar tear-it-all-out redo of mine.

I'm finding this thread more and more useful as I continue tearing into my sov. Ronco's prices have gone up quite a bit since last year, those tanks are 225 each now....bummer.

I'm getting ready to brace up my frame this week and start doing less deconstruction and more reconstruction.

Thanks Perry.

The Marmoleum stops at the middle of the trailer between the galley and the bedroom area. Here is a pic of the transition.
