Speaking of the fancy paint jobs on 50s new cars:
Now this for Sunday:
Monday we arrived in the Mts, and just after set up in a great site, it started to rain. It has rained steady until Friday morning when the sun came out with clear blue skies above. Beautiful day with a slight problem.
A few RVs have Air-conditioners stemming from the basement compartments, but most have the A/C units on top. Some with one and the biggies have 3; we have two. Due to the constant bouncing and many bad roads, ALL have a tendency to leak.
The repair is simply replacing a big gasket. So except for the weight involved, most anyone could do it. The work comes with lifting the unit off the hole in the roof. Then scrapping the old gasket off (the worst part of the job) and replacing it. Once that is done you must carefully lift and ease it back in place.
I have done the job 5-6 times by myself, this time since Sherry is getting older; we actually hired it done. The two young men did it in a short time (less than 2 hours) I usually take a half day.
It was timed so well. A few hours after they left the skies darkened the blue left and the ‘bottom fell out’, as my daddy would say. We are dry. Now all I have to do is clean the stains from the inside ceiling when we get back to home port.
Before the A/C crew came I took advantage between rains to repair the ladder and had it ready for the boys to climb up on the top.
