I spent all day today cleaning the outside of my 76 Soveriegn. It cleaned up nice... if you ever want to find every nick or dent in a used car, wash it by hand. I'm very sore tonight from all the time on a ladder with a scrub brush. Even had to break out the powerwasher at one point to remove all the wet pine needles dammed up behind the awning on the driver's side. This coach sat on someone's 20 acres as their weekend lodging for the past year.
Now to my questions... I've included a number of photos taken from beneath.
1. Can I get replacement leveling jacks? Seems this one is broken in at least two spots. The one opposite isn't in any better shape.
The seam between the pan and the side wrap is open... think I need to do more than close this up with new revits?
I wasn't too happy to see this. Does this imply that this section of the belly pan, beneath the holding tank has been poorly repaired in the past? Tha extra bar across the pan looks like steel due to the rust. I can't imagine that is doing the aluminum any good.
Near the back, the pan seems to be sagging where it attaches to the frame. I don't hear anything like a lot of debris bouncing around when I tap on the piece. Should I remove and peek or just clean it an re-attach?
Finally, for tonight anyway... does this weld say that the frame was repaired sometime in the past or is this normal? There is a matching weld on the other side. BTW, this Soveriegn has the mid bathroom, so I don't suspect any rear sag like I've seen reported in some posts.
The electric brakes don't work but I'll worry about that when I investigate the axles.
If you see anything else that you think I missed or should worry about, or if you have any suggestions, please let me know!
