Thanks Shelly, spent the last couple afternoons working on replacing the front panel and getting the front window ready to reinstall. I decided that the repairs needed to the panel would be tougher than just replacing the whole thing so off it came. now it is ready to replace and its going to rain all day tomorrow oh well . I guess friday will be ok.

Way to go!

Now....don't go and get hurt again. You'll be well on the way by Spring. That side panel looks like you had "Cleco" help. I want to see some window pics.

Hi Kip and Robin, yes the leaks are mostly gone. One small leak at the forward fantastic vent and some leaking at the rear hatch that is not quite finished anyway so I am not greatly concerned. I will post some window pics in a few days, Is there anything in particular you want to see or just general beauty shots?

leaks

Me too. Working on the fantastic fan leaks. I have never had this problem before. Lucky that all the interior skins are out so I can see the problems. It would be a BIG problem if the leaks were hidden.

Since I'm still waiting for the conjunction of a clear day with both my wife and I off work so that we can finish the installation of the front panel and window I thought this would be a good time for planning the next phase of the restoration. After installation of the first layer of insulation it will be time for the electrical runs to be installed. Both 12v and 120v systems will be installed per Lewsters recommentations with marine grade tinned wiring and sealed connectors from Waytec. the 12v distribution panel is Blue Sea from West Marine. Dedicated runs to all major appliances for ease in trouble shooting.
I am not too concerned with laying out the wiring past the distribution panels but the interconnectivity between the 2 voltages with a 3 stage charger/converter and multiple power sources has me a bit confused
I am designing for mostly boondocking with occasional park stays and am planning a 30A shore power outlet for home use.
120v shore power via a Marinco 30A inlet with occasional generator use for battery charging, 4-6 circuits for AC prewire, water heater, refrigerator supply, microwave circuit, battery charging, and half a dozen or so outlets both interior and exterior use. no 120v lighting planned.
12v power via 2 batteries charged by TV, 3 stage charger/converter, occasionally a generator, and prewired for a remote solar system with additional batteries to be added later as desired. Circuits for 2 FF vents, small heater fan-probably a Dickensen, reefer controls, water pump, stove exhaust fan, a small audio system, all LED reading, exterior and interior lights for low battery drain and various 12v outlets along with USB charging ports
Fairly minimal actually but much more than was there originally.
We dont even carry a tv as we prefer to entertain ourselves quietly and enjoy each others company.
anybody have a generic diagram showing how all these systems interconnect? all I am finding are plans for the individual systems
thanks all
tim

LOVE the bronze screens when they catch the light, thanks again Robin

Didn't get above freezing but the weatherman said it wasn't going to get better anytime soon so I dragged my very patient wife out and put the window in at 27 degrees F. Amazingly she is still speaking to me
Now I just need to find a bucking bar that's narrower so I can finish a few odd rivets in tight places.
