started restoration

Posted 11-29-2008 at 08:24 PM by dreadydreame

We have started our restoration (we are doing our best).So far we have removed the bathroom floor. The back 2 ft section. We removed the household toilet that the PO installed. We removed the tub and sink (to make repairs and paint). Getting the univolt out was a very tricky job as was removing the water heater. I think we will update both. We also need to get a battery, there was none in it.

here is how My husband got the univolt out using our camera to zoom in, so he could find the screws bolting it down.

when we took out the water heater we had to cut the bottom of the cabinet off equal with how it was on the side of the toilet encloser.

here is the bondo repair to fiberglass tub I did, we will be painting with tough as tile.

and we are repairing sink with epoxy it had/has a large crack on both sides of drain.

    In relation to renovations, I have a question. I have a 1974 31'....Several years ago the suburban heater 'went out', in fact, it almost blew up on me!!! Needless to say, I had to remove it. I do use the little space heaters, but now that my little niece and nephew will be going places with me in the AS, I am afraid of the little ones either getting burned, tipping over the heaters, or catching the AS on fire. The Suburban heaters cost so much!!! I need to replace the hot water heater too as it is also original and having problems or else I could go out the expense for the heater....
    Does anyone have any suggestions for safer heating of my AS??? Also, I am interested in the waterless hot water system---they are pricey, but are they worth it?? Has anyone else replaced their water heater with a tankless?
