I washed and waxed it, lubed the seals on the slide out and cleaned the awning

Not much going on with the RV today, raining out side right now. Waiting on fed-x and ups delivery so I can work on my mod. Guess I'll think about things and add to my mod / wish list.

Yeah, we saw a few at the shows last year with wood, instead of carpet. It has been on my "Honey Do" list ever since.

The cheap carpet they use in campers really goes to pot quick on the steps.

I used heavy duty construction adhesive, and I used a couple of pneumatic brad nails on each side to hold them until the glue set.

I bought the treads at Lowe's. They are made to be replacement treads for your home. They already have a nice bull nose, and the trim along the front. I cut the to length, sanded, stained, sanded, and applied 5 layers of spray on polyurethane, sanding between coat. It took about 3 weeks, to let them dry good between each operation. I am really proud of how they turned out.

I got the pin nailer over against the edge, next to the carpet, and you cannot even see the tiny holes.

I debated taking the whole step assembly out of the camper and building a complete oak replacement, but in the end I just did the treads.

Next big task is to do glass tiles in the kitchen, behind the sink and range.

UPS delivered the progressive industries HW50C electric protection from Makarios RV $296.88 with shipping it was $318.65, best price I could find. Even tho it was raining I went out and installed it, took about 1-1/2 hr & had to make a stop at HD for a 3' chunk of #6-3 w/g wire. Another mod in the finished column.

Getting REAL close. Only taken 2 yrs. Just have to replace the two D rings to secure the heater and printer table after removing the carpet and adding the molding around the floor, replace the TST 507 sensors with the 507 Flo Thu I got today and that finishes mine!
