No more putting on credit card for me unless it is little stuff. all the tambor doors and latches now work. The vent for the stove did not have any grease. It had some wasp nest but that was it. The vent was clean as a whistle. The interior looks like brand new. We did some serious cleaning and fixed the vista windows black tank and she is looking good.
My goal is to do the axels before spring break.
You have a "rare jewel." Congrats.
Check all the exterior gaskets. If they have never been replaced, then they are past due.
Check the entrance door gasket, screen door gasket, the window gaskets, access compartment gaskets, "AND," especially the sewer vent pipe cover gaskets. Those are good for about 5 years or so, and must be replaced to keep rain off the floor, where it's hidden. Usually the water pump valves after 25 years, would need replacing as well.
When you have the time and the extra funds, you can also update the exterior lighting with LED's.
Check for LPG leaks with a soapy spray. The ceiling lights should be milk white, not yellow. Also check the ceiling vent covers. If yours have a plastic center piece, those are well known leakers too.
Down the road, you may want to purchase a "service manual."
They are very informative should you wish to do your own repairs and maintenance.
