Take your time with the plywood spacing under the shower base. Use a hole saw to make the hole for the drain and stand in it before you finalize the install. Also a good time to seal up any holes to the underneath while youíre there.

Thanks Bob, will do
I think part of the reason this one cracked was because it wasn't lined up from the factory



Got the floor prepped yesterday:
Pull all the staples and carpet remnants
Use the spackle stuff
Sand the spackle stuff
Paint with latex sealer

Today i should be able to lay down the vinyl tiles, or get started at least

Yes....apparently the factory has had a problem with lining things up for quite a while...itís even apparent on the new cabinets that they manufacture. But then again, what do I know....I only sell screwdrivers. Regards, Bob

Going down pretty well (used a chalk line, see our previous conversation about things being lined up, was a good idea, the couch is crooked )
I definitely think I got the early 80s look I was going for!

Go for it, we copied it from someone else, LOL

Baseboard on the couch was not parallel to the centerline of the airstream

Spent the rest of yesterday cleaning up and installing the post holders for the little tables, and fighting plumbing

Replaced the runs to the shower
Got a detla cartridge holder/cartridge combo... Got home and oops, it was just a cartridge holder, went to home Depot with the part number, employee tries telling me I need to call delta and there's no way he can help me because there's sooooooo many cartridge options... 30seconds on google with the part number tells me it fits 13/14/1300/1400/1700 series cartridges

Grab one of those... It's supposed to control temp and flor rate... It only controls temp, flow is always on!
The first univetsal trim kit I got was actually moen, so I went back for a delta one... It doesn't fit either...
Plumbing...

Fixed another factory flaw...
The top shelf in the pantry, it was sagging
Turns out, of the 4 holes supposed to have rivets in them, there was only ONE rivet in the corner... Good job airstream

My first thought was road vibration caused the rivets to fall out but after looking closer it doesn't appear there was ever anything in those holes. I guess I shouldn't be to surprised

That was my thought as well, but there were no holes
The one in the corner you see is my replacement, that one had fallen out, causing the back corner to sag

Could be, I tried seeing if it fit on either the microwave or stove and it didn't seem to...
definitely an original knob or cover of some sort.

I think it's the top cover of the filtered water faucet. Is your filtered water faucet still in place?

It's been replaced, so that would make sense.

Does anyone want it? If not, it's trash to me I guess
