Saying good-bye to TT

What did I (we) do to the camper today? Finished cleaning it out completely.

It goes down to the dealer tomorrow.

But, we pick up a 2017 Sunseeker 3010DS on Tuesday!

Signature to change soon!

We have been busy on our camper getting it ready for camping. We have done the following repairs/upgrades.
1. Remove old 12 volt cooling fan behind the dometic refrigerator and install two new 12 volt fans with more cfm.
2. removed all of the old caulking from the front cap and installed new caulking. (we have been fighting a leak in our front cap that FR and dealer will not help us with unless we pay them)
3. removed the D-Seals from the kitchen slide and install new D-Seals due to two of them being torn from one of the staples that FR installed coming loose.
4. cleaned and conditioned all of the slide seals and wipers.
5. installed wireless temperature sensors in both the freezer and refrigerator sections of the Dometic to monitor the temperature better this year.
6. Purchased new lighter weight 32" lcd TV for the bedroom and installed the TV with a wall mount. Made sure this time that the mount was secured to one of the aluminum wall studs. Also purchased and mounted a tie-down strap for the TV so that it would travel better.
7. Installed bug shields on the heater exhaust port, water heater cover and the two outside refrigerator covers.

More to come later.

Insect Screens

I added some screens to keep the insects out. I bought the round furnace screens and installed them but needed to do something for the refrigerator opening.

I decided to rip some 1x6s down and make a wood frame that I installed in the opening.

I caulked it and painted the caulk black, then I went to Home Depot and bought some screen materials to build a custom size screen.

I ended up drilling holes and securing it with screws so it does not come loose when traveling.

Also had to reconnect one the outdoor speakers that had worked it self loose from the back of the radio, got that spliced back together and speaker working again. Vacuumed up all the extra sawdust they left in there. May have found a secret cubby compartment under the radio, it requires further investigation.
There is a little bit of extra room under the sink down where the furnace is I found when I was adding bracing to the shelves under the counter top, might be the perfect place to add a safe or something similar.
Next on the list is to take it to the shop and let them install and adjust the Equalizer hitch we got.
We should be finished after that...until I find the next thing I can't live with out.

Pulled the camper out of the garage and washed it down - roof and all. Today, I plan on giving it a coat of Nu Finish polish. Also de-winterized and checked to make sure stuff still worked. Just now thought, I have to clean the inside somewhat also!
