These Sovereigns are just too cool aren't they? We're the new owners of a 76 Sovereign and we're excited too. You've done a beautiful job. Is that a Dometic frig you put in? Also did you paint all the cabinets or replace them? I'd like to see more pictures.

Pic's are on post 18, if you haven't seen them. More are available.....We painted ALL brown laminate surfaces......primer, then paint. Caulked everything, then painted ceiling two tone blue. Wife made curtains from IKEA fabric, Laminate Bamboo floor from IKEA, new galley countertop from Home Depot. Removed center sofa sleeper and closet/counter and installed two single bunks, with LOTS of storage underneath. Bath mostly original, wife liked the wallpapaer. Layed OSB subfloow under the laminate nad left it as is in bedroom walkway and bath....we ues washable IKEA throw rugs...........Did I mention the three English Bulldogs that travel with us?? Need to finish, as I've said, the toilet leak and will probably seal the OSB that under the throw rugs, just in case one of the 'kids' has an accident.

Any information you would every need is on this forum. If it isn't, then all you have to do is ask.

Congrats on your AS!
I did the windows, and boy that was fun. As suggested and recommended on ASF, I broke out the inner pane of the vista wondows......a punch, a hammer and steady hand. Tap it first, then harder nad harder as you until she breaks. Punch at the very edge of the weatherstrip so you can knick the edge of the glass (if lucky enough). Took all the other windows out, apart, scraped cleaned and washed, then back together. Caulked aounr the old gaskets after rebuild/reinfirce the seal. I have a couple that still condense, so I'll need to go back and caulk some more after they dry. Most of the time, clear as can be. Use lots of WD40 if they won't slide apart. Some took longer to get apart than it took to completely remove, overhaul and replace others.

Sounds like the hose connection from the flush valve to the inside rim of the toilet.
If it's like my Thetford Galaxy, there are only 3 nuts holding the thing down and it is not hard to remove the thing.

To reinstall, you would need a new seal between the floor flange of the toilet.(a few bucks)

Keep flushing,

Michael




PS, Fotos PLEASE!

I keep seeing those screen door guards in several trailers. Does anyone know where you can purchase those? I also travel with dogs and they can do damage to the screen. Loved your videos. You've done a great job on the Sovereign.

We bought one at an Airstream dealer (Oasis RV in Tucson).
I have not replaced the screen in almost a year!

The old 78 is gone, but replaced with a 67 Overlander. Anyone explain the tail lights on this baby?? Most photos of these show a wider layout............... skinnier on older ones, but we have all the original paperwork and it shows 67.
