Upon our return I disconnected the wiring and LPG line and pulled the unit for troubleshooting. Things went downhill from there...water heater was leaking and the subfloor around it was rotted,

Wife suggested that I had the furnace out, go ahead and pull the water heater, and the sink, faucet, and countertop, and the stove and the cabinets...Notice a trend here?

Yep, she wants to redo the interior of the coach.

While I’m removing fixtures, etc...she ordered an induction cooktop, convection microwave, quartz countertops for the kitchen, bathroom and the back shelf in the bedroom?

Yesterday with everything out she suggested I remove the PO laminate floor. I guess we’re getting an LVT floor.

Found some soft spots and rot...pulled up the plywood subfloor in the living and kitchen area.

So a simple furnace repair...(haven’t troubleshoot yet...) has turned into a big project

Guess I’ll have to add new Pex Plumbing to the list as well.

Did I mention we have a trip to Louisiana planned for mid-April?

My “honey-do list” has definitely grown...

I have to admit, when you mentioned mid April the rest of us were wondering "of what year". However your steady perseverance on making decisions and then getting the work done is truly impressive. While you obviously didn't make your April date the fact that you are this close already to being done is something I would have lost a lot of money on had I bet against you!

I'm enjoying watching this rebuild

It’s been an adventure!

Numerous delays due to late part deliveries and Shelter in Place rules. Still pressing forward.

Trouble in generator-land

Unable to start since March, put on back-burner as I was juggling many projects

Spent the day troubleshooting...

Cranks slowly and compression stroke pushes air-fuel charge back thru carb.

Thinking I may have to pull the generator from the compartment and tear it down...
