Busy weekend doing some maintenence. Pics

Well I spent some time under my new to me 39k this weekend. Honestly I have a lot more to do. Lots of rust to deal with. I purchased some Chassie Saver and found some spots but I wont apply it until next weekend.

Things I wanted to do and got done was power wash the engine and paint the oil pan.

Removed the rear TV. Installing a new flat screen.

Fixed a water leak on the sink drain.

Im removing all the gold and going to Oil Rubbed Bronze.I dont think I will do the hinges. I ordered some new light fixtures but a few of them I just painted with some great Paint by Rustoleum. They actually turned out pretty good.

Scrubbed the roof spic and span and washed the outside.

I had to buff out my wheels. Mothers Polish is some amazing stuff.

Im changing the plumbing fixtures to Oiled Bronze as well. Had to order those and should have them next week.

Its going into the Freightliner shop this week for some chassie lube and alignment.

Lots of work to do still but its getting there.

Very nice! Wish I had the energy/stamina to get that much done in one weekend. If I can do just one of those tasks per weekend, I consider that a hard weekend of work!

Im in the Heating and Air business and I used a product called Triple D made by Diversitech. I hosed to top of the engine and applied the Triple D with a pump up garden sprayer. I let it sit for a few and rinsed it off. I used the power washer from the bottom.

Nice job so far, anxious to see your other progress. We have the exact same color scheme for the exterior and interior fabric. The only difference I see is that we have the cherry cabinets and you have the oak. I like the ORB instead of the brass handles. FYI, my wife noticed on our TG trip to Reno that the side seam in one the cushions on the Rest Easy Sofa was beginning to separate. I stopped by an uphostery shop and he said that particular material is known for that problem because of the way it is fabricated underneath. I removed the two seat cushions(4 nut/bolts each, takes 5 min.) and took them down to him and he removed the covers and seam taped all the seams from the inside and resewed them. Said I wouldn't have that problem again. Might want to keep an eye on them.

Some of the improvements I made to ours are:

-Added 110V outlet in drivers area
-Added 110V outlet on wall in dinette below the mirror
-Added 110V outlet on toilet wall near floor(for a small ceramic htr)
-Added 110V outlet on rear side of dresser to plug a lamp into
-Added 110V outlet and cable connection to the second bay on curbside(I set up a flat screen on the slide out tray for the g-kids to watch
(No, I am not an electrician, just a general contractor who loves to dabble)
-Installed a 14x14 vent in bedroom ceiling(wife always complaining how dark it was in there during daytime)
-Removed carpeting at entryway back to the floor vent and installed Allure vinyl planks
-Changed out the bedroom TV like you are doing. Mounted it on the door.
-Installed a 12V light in the cabinet above the end cabinet in kit.
-Removed the garbage can sized restrictive muffler and installed an Aero 5050XL

I still have a list of things to do, my pyrometer gauge is arriving tomorrow, so that is my next improvement. I hope you enjoy working on yours as much as I do mine; it has become a tinkering hobby for me. I will be looking for your progress.
