I hope that there is not a problem because that is what I used and it is a good thing 7 inches of rain over the last 2 weeks and yes we have some leaks (putting it mildly!) the rain gods are after my butt! If we did get another tropical storm we will be losing trees!

Yes I said that! Or did I?

7 inches! I dont think we've had that much rain all summer.
We had 13+ feet of snow this past winter. Thats my worry here that a snow or ice storm could collapse my tiny silver dream.

Your little silver Twinkie is a bit more durable than that! The only concern I have is all the salt in the air during our infrequent hurricanes! Oh well until the sun shines again or the ark is Completed I will just continue to mark the leaks! During one of the breaks in the rain I tried to cut the grass and finished the front yard but blew the transaxle on my 16 year old craftman so now another project!

I hate to date myself, but does any one remember the *keep on truckin!* sticker of yesteryear?
I feel just like those guys on the sticker every time I walk thru my trailer. High stepping up and over each crossmember.
No need for Pilates this summer!

Heres an electrical question.
What is the black flat romex type wire that comes out of the wall just above the fuse box in the bathroom streetside
closet.
It was taped off on the end and taped to the vent pipe in the closet.
It goes from there up into the end cap.
Is it for AC?

Cliff,
Thank you so much for taking time out to measure your Caravel.
Thank you also for clearing up the black romex question.
You are a Caravel encyclopedia! :-)

Today we will remove the 2 side compartment doors and reseal, then buck them back in.
Those 2 doors leak like a sieve!
If that goes along smoothly then we can start prepping the frame for the POR 15.
No rain in sight for at least 3 days so I hope to get many things scratched off the extremely long list.

Today we got 1 (streetside) compartment door drilled out, resealed and the old black tape stuff removed and cleaned, then sealed with butyl tape and bucked back in.
The other door (curbside) is drilled out, removed and cleaned up. We will buck it back in tomorrow.
To reattach the battery vent tube holder I used butyl tape and 2 closed end pop rivets with aluminum an aluminum washer on the back of each one.
It was a great day!

The blue stuff is hillbilly skirting.
Really its plastic sheeting that some of our aluminum at work is delivered in.
It makes a great wind break inside the trailer so the shielding gas for welding does not blow away.
And its free!
