Unhappy Nelson

Am restoring the old camper: Work in progress -
sustem by system inspection and repair/replace as necessary ...

- the seal on the old fridge is/has been a real frustration -

the factory sent me the (they say) exact type replacement gaskets for the Dometic model - and yep they (2) are different from what had previously been installed - and getting everthing to fit - (beginning to suspect the old installed attaching system is for a diferent type refrigerator gasket?)

Windows sealed // screens replaced - over head vents re-worked and re rivited -

---------Water system next - ----
Hot and cold water plumbing (lines) next (this weekend 4-10-08):

followed by

hot water heater - remove clean // test and repair/replace/ reinstall/
(any suggestions will be welcome ?)
