Tearing out old electrical

Diane stripped out old 120 v wiring and 12v interior wiring with bolt cutters, it would have taken me forever, as I would be trying to remember each existing run. She allowed me to start fresh.

Last layer insulation

Install layer of RMax panel insulation adhered with more carpet tape to fill 1 wall, seal seams with Silver AC seam tape, I hope this will add to sound deadening and possibly add to R value

Another injury - safety warning

Power wash interior skins, Diane found that power washer can go right through your foot, just inside of little toe, but trailer skins clean up very nicely.
Please wear appropriate shoes if you chose to use a power washer
