Easter Work Session, Day Three
Ugh. ... another long day. Let's see, plumbing vent replaced, curtains installed (see picture), hooks & holders installed, fire extinguisher, completed stereo wiring, installed vinyl tile on bathroom floor and transition strip, fabricated and installed closet shelves, catalytic heater installed, shower plumbing leak fixed (we think), shower re-assembled and caulked, toilet paper holder re-installed (first attempt didn't hold up), screen door tweaked, more rusty screws replaced, and I think I forgot a few other things we did as well ...
We also added 18 inches of flexible line to the Shurflo water pump inlet. According to the manufacturer's recommendations, this should help reduce the noise of it. In our test it was a bit quieter, but nowhere near "silent" as advertised.
Now it's past 11 pm and we're beat, and of course there's still more work to be done. We still haven't finished the hull liner and associated trim, there's one more window needing "fuzzy seal", we still need to replace the weatherstrip on all the windows and entry door, there are two outriggers needing replacement, etc.
But this is the end of the work for now. Both Brett and I need to get back to our day jobs for a while, and I also have to transport Vintage Thunder northward for the spring and summer season. The trailer is perfectly serviceable and quite comfortable, so I'm sure we'll enjoy the trip up the east coast. We will blog from the road starting this Thursday, so keep checking for updates.
There's also a bonus coming! Tomorrow we will shoot an iPix interior view of the living room, and we'll post it online in a week or two. You'll be able to take a virtual tour of Vintage Thunder, right on the Airstreamlife.com website. Check back here for details.
