Up early lots happening again today. The sun is shinning so I can hopefully get some work done on the MH. Robby and family are flying home from the Dominican Republic and Elizabeth just called and is stopping by.
I had a nice surprise last night in my email. We bought a convertible Mini Cooper S back in 2004 just before I retired and it is now owned by a couple in Maine and they sent me a picture and told me they got it from someone in Long Island, NY. It still looks brand new.
So after she left I unpacked the two boxes and started to assemble the bed.
|The foam for the sides|
|The mattress with deluxe topper|
|I first had to drill a couple holes|
|Then cut it out so I had a 1" by 4" hole|
|This is the air unit that sits under the bed, its now in|
the upper left corner of the bed
|Then the foam sides go in|
|And the topper zips on and now its a queen size mattress|
Since the bed only took a couple hours I decided to tackle the next job.
I bought a Level 3 Culligan water filter during the winter so figured I would put that in.
|Here are the pieces and parts with the head mounted on 1/2" plywood|
ready to be mounted
|The blue PEX line should be the cold water, the adapter installs there.|
|Here is the adapter inline and the pink winter antifreeze in the new pressurized line|
|This shows the new faucet and how much has to |
be cut out of the Corian sink cover.
Not very warm or sunny this morning, so I stayed in the house and did 4 loads of wash, washed the dishes in the sink, and ran the dishwasher. Then after lunch it was warmer and sunnier so I went out to work on the MH. I backed it up to the garage and flushed out the hot water heater then put the drain plug back in it.
|The wand used to flush out the water heater|
I flushed out all the pink antifreeze out of the water lines pressurized the system and checked for leaks. Good news no leaks.
|"Wet Bay" where the water hooks up.|
|Used this to disinfect the hoses and tanks|
|Air hose hooked up|
then headed back toward home. When we dropped off our friend we got a good tour of his MH and sat in it for a while visiting.
Home now and time to relax and then off to bed.
Emily our cat must like her new cat food. She started letting me know the dish was empty around 6:30 this morning. I put her off until 7:30 when I finally gave up. Bonnie was up but must not have heard her. So Emily is fed and Bonnie has left for a Mothers Day breakfast with Elizabeth and Alexus at their church. Then she is going shopping, and then back home to go to our church with her mother and sisters for dinner.
I already went out and opened the fresh water drain on the MH to let the 80 gals of bleach water drain out and will partially fill it later. I also want to mount the Fire Extinguishers today and maybe plug in the MH and turn on the refrigerator to test the latest recall device Norcold has. Buffalo RV installed it for me last fall and a lot of failures have been reported.
|The black box is a new safety device|
|Working on the back bar|
|Plenty of room to work.|
They had a front bar to put on also but it was the wrong part. I headed for home when they took a break for lunch.
I got home had a little lunch and then went out to flush the tank and fill it part way with fresh water. I was also able to mount the 4 fire extingushers. I put in the fresh water cartridge and flushed it out per the instructions also. The water tastes really good.
|This what it looks like under the sink now|
|And this is with the sink tops cut out and in place|
Happy Mothers day. Up and off to church. Then came home and did some things around the house that Bonnie wanted done. Then we went out and she checked out the work I have been doing in the MH. Her mother and dad came over for an early dinner. So we are relaxing and talking.
Hope all of you have had a great day.
Thanks for checking in.
