Making progress...

With a LOT of help from the AirForum, I have managed to completely rewire the 120VAC and am now working on adding 12VDC. I have manged to get the running lights working and will be replacing the TV umbilical cord with one that has a fuse box. All the cabinetry has been sanded, stained and painted with 3 coats of poly and we have replaced the plumbing with PEX. Right now we're in the process of installing a new fresh water tank and adding a gray water tank. The black tank has been ordered and will be installed with a new ceramic potty when it comes in.

We have also replaced all the screens and refinished the screen/window hardware.

It's hard living in Podunkville where we have NO stores and the closest town with a store is an hour away. Home Depot and Lowe's are 3 hours away.

It's been a challenge but so far, so good!
