I love this thread. We used to do this before didn't we?

We removed the overhead cabinets in the kitchen and installed two 18' sheets of aluminum veneer in the forward area. Also put in new screens and weatherstripping on the screen door.

Once the window frame are back in the paseenger side aluminum will be done and we can start putting in the new (yet to be built) cabinetry.

It was nice to work on the stream again.

Also found a SS Microwave/Convection oven for over the range at Sams.

So, Shari... what did you spray onto the other disgustingly shiny tank to get it to that nice, calm, evenly distributed flat-aluminum patina...??? Did it take long? Was it a multi-step process? Did you use Southern Dull? Please tell us so we can all make our trailers and tanks look dull and gray!

Steven,

Yes we did this before. I merged the threads.

It rained here so all I did was change the oil. I was able to fit a 2 qt oil filer in there, so I did. Then I put the MH in storage. I still have a short list, but I have a more pressing RV project to complete........

Oh Shari how I wish I had your ambition. I don't know how you find time to keep Maxwell looking so sharp between moderating these forums and all else that you do.
While I was polishing the tank, Mr. InsideOut was spiffing up Maxwell. Still trying to get the whole thing Cyclo'd with 'S' in the next week...pretty ambitious for working folks!

Haven't made it to the really fun stuff yet

This weekend, I removed my rear electric stabilizer jack assembly for repair and cleaning.


Next weekend, new brakes.


Might be more fun were the ambient temp not flirting with the century mark... Oh well. Guess I'll roll out the awning and plug in the really big fan... and ice down the really big cooler.

Dad and I removed the heater for bench testing(it failed to light on our last trip), vulkemed a few areas, resealed the awning with 303 fabric guard, washed the trailer, rewired the jack, replaced the fiber gear, masked and painted the AIRSTREAM logos front and rear (1.5hrs of masking time each!!), sanded the face of the rear logo to match original. Couldn't do the front as the sun had warmed the new paint too much and wanted to ball up instead of sand off.

Oh yeah, replaced the horn on my dads van, removed both front door panels, tightened various window hardware, replaced the door panels and smoked 4 pork tenderloins.

WHEW!

Wink could it be....?

Anybody here remember the movie "The Neverending Story"? It was a children's fantasy tale. Could we somehow do a remake

We, too, became the willing slaves of the "Mini" calling and finally redid the belt and rubrails and all attached hardware that was painted by PO. Finished the install of the new WH and the patch job on plywood underneath where it had rotted. Reriveted some of her bellypan that had torn loose while finishing the valve replacement on grey/black tanks. Took down and washed (carefully) the curtains. (Going to repair some of the tabs that are worn out.)Added her faux stained glass in back window.
Still have to finish: adding new ventpipe covers, putting back up the aluminum panel to cover black/grey tanks, taking down all outside lights and adding new vulkem under. WE ARE ON A ROLL....

For the first time in almost 8 months, I got ABSOLUTELY NOTHING DONE on my trailer this weekend, and the guilt is killing me.

It rained... excuse me... poured all weekend here. I did clean up my garage, which is a key component in me getting stuff done on the trailer, so... I suppose that counts. I still feel guilty though!

New floor

I worked on putting in my new floor - Knotty pine laminate by Armstrong (Lance is awesome) and am 3/4 of the way on my 34' Limited. As I'm full timing in it while being recalled to Active duty, I got tired of walking on the plywood from removing the rug about 3 weeks ago. It's coming out very nice, see my pictures in my photo album.

I missed this earlier...you had me going for a half-a-minute! LOL You know how everything comes back around in time...maybe dull unpolished trailers & tanks will be in style next year...then we'll be in BIG trouble and completely out of style!!!

I got my new RV 30 amp plug completed. Had an electrician buddy come by and do the final connections in the panel.

Now I can run the AC when working in it without worrying about the power

Chas,
You've got a set of sharpie eyes~
Actually, the newer models have these additional features:
Front handle is plastic...yuck
Rear handle is covered with black rubber~
Apart from this, they look the same.

This weekend I replaced the belly pan from the axle to the rear of the trailer which I had removed to work on the holding tanks. Also replaced lp line to water heater which had a small crimp in it.
