Too bad you're not in Dallas anymore. We could compare notes.

Thanks for the complement on the rock guard, but I can't take credit for it's beauty.

Aye, it is a real granite counter and back splash! Don't know if I will keep it though, is it too heavy?

And yes, strange spot for a sink, but I will fix that.

I have a 72 Overlander. You have one tank for black water only! So not run your gray drains into it!! You need a blue boy, portable tank for gray water. It's no biggie to hook up and use.Do not use black tank for gray water.

Good to know, thanks mccrosti! I think that I am going to install a gray water tank while I have everything pulled up. Also toying with the idea of using the gray water to flush the "potty", but I still need to wrap my mind around that one...

I wouldn't think a piece of granite that small would weigh enough to matter, but there is some reason you never see it, not even in $100,00-$250,000 trailers and motor homes- must be because of the weight-

So of course it's rained cats and dogs all day.. Did get the chance to make a pattern and prepare the black tank - install the valve etc for its new home.

So, the verdict is in. I hate Fiberglass insulation. It is the absolute worst.

The wife and I pulled out all of the interior panels, insulation and wiring.

I had no idea that the front and rear domes were fiberglass. Learn something new everyday. We are going to put in some beefier wiring since we are going to use an induction cooktop.
Do you think 12 gauge will be able to handle the power draw?

The next step is to take the shell off so I can work on the frame. The question here is, do I need to remove the buck rivets around the outside shell or should I be able to remove all those rusted out bolts from the c channel inside and have the shell come off?

Also the on the pieces of the shell that wrap around the frame, I have seen people say they rest the shell on the ground. Wouldn't that deform those pieces unless you removed them?
