    Ok..so I finally came up with a plan to fix this hole that was left from old fridge vent. 20190712_183806.jpg

    Cant find the picture, but I cut and glued foamboard to fill the hole. Then i cut paneling to cover foamboard. Here it is. 20190806_182539.jpg With all of that glued together and in place, next I cut a piece of smooth filon siding( picked up cheap from campers inn) 20190806_175255(1).jpg

    Then i used stay-put glue to stick it over everything. Nwxt, i cut some pvc trim and covered my edges. Added caulk will keep water from ever seeping in 20190806_195415.jpg

    YES, I know its ugly, but its a patch. And Guess what else it is.... 20190806_205412.jpg

    Soo much "real job" work, so little time.
    However....I have kept busy every evening and night , working on the rv for at least an hour every day...most days more.

    Updates are just around the corner

    This is on the inside, a spot that was previously nearly impossible to access. These water lines/shut off valves go thru this wall. (1st pic)And end up on the outside. (2nd pic)
    20190718_151758.jpg 20190622_130150.jpg

    I thought I had replaced/fixed any faulty or questionable plumbing, but my 2nd water test proved that the valve with the blue circle was leaking. Probably froze and cracked during a previous life's winter.

    I started thinking and wondering why I needed to replace this in a factory manner. And in fact..I didnt. I decided to do away with the outside accessibility in favor of easy installation of new valves with inside accessibility. Now that the rv has fold up access panels to this area, this will be a breeze. And technically, I am bringing "outside plumbing" inside. Should be less likely to freeze.

    All valves are indoors now! 20190723_225641.jpg 20190723_225650.jpg

    Well I loaded up my camper and drug it and my 2 kids over to Dylan’s place to be that trashy friend that comes and camps in your driveway. Seemed fitting. Fun was had. The kids roamed and had hours of fun while me and Dylan knocked out some key things on the RV! I can’t thank Dylan enough for his awesome hospitality, he fed me well our kids had an absolute blast together.

    We managed to get the AC unit installed and wired up, all of the fans and vents installed and sealed. The roof is 100% done now. Put the trim all the way down the passenger side, including the special trim to attach the awning later.
    Fixed the blower motor for cab AC, and tested to make sure his new generator would run the AC, which it did no problem.

    Bending the trim around the front half was actually pretty easy and went surprisingly smooth.

    And Dylan captured me and his buddy Keith having a moment while installing the AC. Dylan was no where to be found during this install might I add. Claims he was pooping...

    All in all, it was a very productive day. We got other small things done too. He’s done a lot that he hasn’t posted here yet and the RV is actually very close to being done soon!
    It’s every bit as awesome as you think is in the pics, he’s done an amazing job.






























    And last but not least, I was the first one to tag the RV.

    So far, I have not paid much attention to the cab and front interior. It's all used up, and the front seats are wasted. I've been searching for new or used seats but havnt found anything. All of the Junkyard seats I've checked out were junk. New seats are well over 1000.oo plus several hundred for shipping. And they're not even the right color.
    Here's what I have. 20190804_211732.jpg

    Time to rip the cab apart.
    Seats coming out 20190808_120532.jpg

    Ripping out the old carpet. It was junk. 20190808_121309.jpg

    Old padding was a real mess. 20190808_121555.jpg

    Scrub it down babe! 20190808_124900.jpg

    Hard to see them, but someone had added screws through the carpet to hold it down.
    I cant have all these little holes anymore. Front tire will sling water all into these holes. 20190901_133207.jpg

    Added some eterna bond tape. Should be good now. 20190808_133302.jpg

    Had to seam 2 pcs together, but I had enough matching carpet to cover the cab floor. 20190808_134316.jpg 20190808_185544.jpg 20190808_200119.jpg

    Now that the cab has been scrubbed down, cleaned up and is looking good. I still have the ugly seat blues. 20190809_140536.jpg

    I called up my buddy at Twins upholstery to get a quote on recovering these beauties.

    Negative! Ghost rider, the pattern is full!

    They're in the middle of recovering over 200 church pews and couldnt fit me in for months.
    However she did turn me on to another guy that only does automotive upholstery.
    I loaded up the ugliest seats and headed that way. He had just finished a boat and said he could jump on my project right away. I skimmed through his stock materials and found some fabrics I really liked. So...a 3 day turnaround sounded perfect. I had gotten lucky timing wise! Gotta love that luck!

    Bad lighting in this pic. But the seats turned out awesome! Black cloth in the middle, dark grey leather trim, and all new foam! 20190814_143300.jpg

    20190814_143307.jpg 20190814_180015.jpg 20190901_143504.jpg 20190901_143449.jpg

    Gotta admit...I'm super excited with these seats!!

    I dug out the sofa bed frame, shot it with wd40 in all the right spots.
    Shot it with black paint in other spots. 20190810_172106.jpg

    Brought it into the rv and started reassembly. The newly recovered cushions have been inside my home for almost a year..I'm glad to get them back where they belong.
    Brooke was more than happy to help. I lined up the bolts and holes, added the nut and handed her the ratchet. 20190810_183149.jpg

    Everybody is happy happy happy with the new sofa bed 20190810_185052.jpg 20190810_212014.jpg

    Maycee created a new spotify playlist. She named the playlist 'RV Clark' Some of her music is pure crap, but I thought the play list name was cool! 20190810_222217.jpg

    Time to get the booths and table back in place. 20190810_203057.jpg

    Cushions came with velcro to keep them from slipping. Cool! 20190810_225100.jpg
