Better Photos... I hope....

I realized after yesterday's post that that collage I assembled was the pits.  Yeah...  I do that every now and then...  (maybe more "now than then" these days)...  but since I already knew what everything looked like, it was okay to this non-mechanical...  non-??? ...  well, heck...  I was an English major....  go figure...

Anyway...  today it actually got up to 60+ degrees!  Yahoo!  Yippee!  and a few other expletitives .....

So...  after our Friday trip to H.E.B. this morning (you NEVER want to venture out into town after 10:00 on a Friday morning...  traffic is awful)....  Bill went to work on the rig again....

All the rotten wood has been removed...  now starts the rebuilding of the infrastructure

This board isn't really in place yet...  Bill is just showing me where it will go to replace the rotten one.  But...  at the top of the new board is the "gap" that Lazy Daze accidentally left when building our rig that caused all the damage.

This is where that board will go when Bill's ready to put it in.  I am going to repeat myself here, but believe me when I say that Lazy Daze puts out a fantastic motorhome.  We may have this problem, but if we ever have to buy another motorhome, trust me....  we'd head right back to California and order one just like we have.  Sure, things happen....  but we feel like our 13 years on the road were only possible because of our excellent living conditions.


And on the opposite side, he's already put the new board in place.  Those clamps are holding it secure until the glue dries.

Tomorrow Bill will head to Home Depot or Lowe's...  buy a sheet of paneling and begin the tedious job of making the cuts to replace the stuff he had to take out.

And, like so many of you have said...  YES!  Thank goodness that the "capable" handymen are here to do the job.  It's a whole 'nother story, but, believe me, I've learned that not everyone has these abilities.  So...  as you can tell...  there'll be "the rest of the story" to follow.

That's All For Today!

  3. I wonder if the Lazy Daze warranty would apply? They have a lifetime warranty on the frame to the original purchaser. It might be good to ask. This is from their website: "The Lazy Daze frame, located between the inside and outside walls, is backed with a lifetime warranty to the original owner. This unique warranty helps substantiate the fact that we manufacture a rugged product, with built-in longevity for years of trouble-free enjoyment."

  4. Dang, you are doing some quite extensive work on your RV. I would never be able to do that. Even way back years ago when a was young and able, my father-in-law warned everyone that I was dangerous when I had a tool in my hand (grin). I guess I was always a mechanical designer not a mechanical doer.

  5. And unfortunately, Lazy Daze gets added to the list of less than stellar RVs that have been foisted on the unsuspecting RV buying public. I had the notion that they were somehow a notch above the rest. Oh well.

  8. I'd follow Donna K's advice and give Lazy Daze a call. If nothing else, maybe they would reimburse you for your costs. Too bad this happened, but at least you know why, and you'll know it was repaired correctly. Even though it was their error, I think everyone makes mistakes sometimes, and if Lazy Daze is a cut above most of the others, an occasional misstep can still happen. I'm just sorry it happened to you.

  10. That's got to be scary seeing your home like that! It looks like an awful lot of work but at least you know it will be fixed right.
