Sorry for the long delay on replies.... Lots going on at work and also at home with the Argosy.
- Got her moved inside my garage. Thank God it cleared the garage door by an inch or so. (Note: My "garage" is a 1500
s/f metal building with 10' eaves and a 10x12 overhead door in the front. I use a forklift to move the Camper [or anything else] around.) Garage has power, heat, is dry, has a painted floor, and lots of light.
- Vacuumed real good.. bye bye mouse poo!
- Removed what was left of the center bed. Double my a%%. No way in HE11~ More like Twin by the numbers.
- Center bed will be rebuilt and replaced with something made in the present century for sleeping on. Front bed will be recovered and left as a convertible couch.
- Removed the abominations installed by the previous owner (LPG gas heater and 6" hole in camper side for exhaust).
- Upgraded the original copper plumbing system with a sawzall and high speed air saw. Split it into 20 or so pieces and took a picture of it. (Yes this means I removed that lousy pile of copper nasties... complete with 4 current splits, 10 pieces of hose, and more bad solder joints then a blind soldering shop). Will be installing PEX to replace it.
- Gave the evil eye to all the ABS/PVC. It's days are numbered.
- Spent some time getting familiar with the floor. So far I have some of the required rot around the door and a small spot in front of the shower. I'm debating how much of the shower area really needs to be worked on. From what I can see around the Univolt the sub floor is in good shape. It looks like the shower wall has allowed leakage at one time or another. I see some caulk and the damage is localized to under the front wall of the shower. I'm very tempted to cut out the rot and screw in a patch support and patch. I know that's a hack, but seriously I don't plan to stand under the bed that will be over that spot.
- Belly pan is next up, I need to pull down from the axle back so I can re-attach it and rework the plumbing.
- Trying to resist the urge to rip the whole bathroom out..... It will be much easier if I don't pull the whole thing out and only focus on the plumbing issues.
