Thanks! Yes, we have gone the last two years and I'm still cleaning out the dust! We are looking forward to going again this year.

I've had the electric fuel pump for maybe a year now and I just might finally get it installed. I fabricated a mounting plate that will up underneath between two floor rails. I used my Harbor Freight metal brake to bend a piece of galvanized steel that I had sitting around. The thickness was probably the max for the brake but with some muscle I made it work. My mounting plate isn't perfect by any means but it will work fine for the intended purpose.

I removed and stripped down the spice cabinet from behind the stove so I could clean and paint it. I made my first abs/mek slurry to patch a few cracks and filled a hole with some plastic weld.

Know that you two have really enjoyed BM the past couple of years. Wonder if at some point, with your knowledge and experience, you could share with us your 'to-do' list, as well as what all you plan on leaving behind this year, as well as must haves.
Thanks, Derek

Perhaps we will meet you out there.

Although, we will be in our Flying Cloud, and leaving the 350 at home.


Regards,

JD

My 280 rear bath had pocket doors between the bedroom and bath. I've never liked them and they really would no longer open and close well. I also didn't like the full length mirrors on them. I remember a couple of decades ago, I could actually sit on the can and have the doors closed. I'm guessing my legs are too long now...yup I'm sure that is it!

I've removed the doors and today I took them apart and tossed out the mirrors. The mirrors made the doors heavy. I'm keeping the aluminum and extras for future use!Click image for larger version

We took our doors off as well. I am sure they were a good idea when they were new but ours banged and made noise when we drove and had trouble staying on the tracks. We took ours off as well and we are going to use a curtain for privacy....much lighter in weight...will match our other curtains.....Paula
