I personally like setting the furniture on top of the floor and do not use any shoe molding. If I have to use shoe molding, I try to match the wood the best I can.
Wow, that's a very dramatic finish!

Wrapping up the trimmings, need to run a thin bead of white caulk, and the wife will touch up all the nails white

Under the shower door I put a nice big bead of trempro to prevent water from getting under the floor


And finally started the last of the fiberglass work for the rear bananas

Never did get my furnace working last winter, I posted that the limit switch fixed it but I was mistaken.

I'll be needing that for any boondocking to occur during cold weather travel

Today I yanked it, changed the control board and the solenoid, and reinstalled.

Seems to have done the trick this time...


Also hooked up the new walkway lights

Clamping the banana wraps flat while the fiberglass hardened worked quite well

Anyone know what these are?
Not centramatics, nor hubcaps for the the motorhome

Hubcaps for a trailer? Not sure how they wound up with my motorhome stuff.

Anybody want them?

Finally ordered tires, duals were having a 7th birthday in a couple months and fronts weren't a lot newer, unknown history on the storage of both

https://www.airforums.com/forums/f15...ml#post2439922

2x RM170+, 225/70r19.5, load range F part number 90000039342
4x RM257, 225/70r19.5, load range F part number 90000036421
$1490 shipped, will be here Thursday

a little confused as the manufacturer chart says they're speed L(75), manufacturer marketing and the page I bought from both say N(87). Both are fine, interested to see what's stamped on the tire.

didn't spring for the centramatics at this time, but got dynabeads RV package of the larger beads, 6oz for the fronts 8oz for the duals

quick test showed that one of the two solenoid coils mustve given out. No actuation with 14v applied. Put the spare control board on the shelf.

Dropped the tank, plainly visible water. Explains why it ran poorly! Need too put more than one tank a year through it! Shouldn't be a problem this year

It actually does! I'm happy, no gunk

The PO supposedly replaced all the fuel lines as well. A claim I need to verify, but they seem more flexible than I would expect 40 year old lines to be. One of them is bright red rubber under the dirt coating, which doesn't scream 70s to me. Hard for me to tell without comparison. At a minimum the lines in the bay will get replaced while I'm in there.

Temporarily remounted the old tires to check out the air system and get everything torqued

Finally back on its own 6 feet!

shortly after airing up I noticed a leak from the hose exiting the air pump being cracked right at the fitting, due to no strain relief. I wiggled it and the plastic line broke right off, dumping all the air out of the tank.

The coach sat at its height for a good hour or so, then the valve called for more air (not sure if because of a slow leak or weight shifting inside the coach) and it dumped all the air from the bags back out that line as well.

So,
1. I need to fix a line, not a big deal
2. I don't have any check valve. not surprising as I couldn't find it visually, but now confirmed. good to know I guess, I don't think I care enough to add one at this moment

The leveling valve is a check valve, at least on my dual valve system. The only other check valve needed is typically just at the compressor to prevent back leaking.
get the soap bottle out

Right, no back leaking valve at the compressor. Unless it's internal

POR for the fuel tank to make the outside look as good as the inside, maybe I'm a nerd but I always do the full 3 step process
