Bill & Victor have been moving right along.... despite the (very) cold temperatures. So cold, in fact, that Victor bought one of those outdoor propane heaters to help a little.
The windows are out... so are all the various doors to bays, batteries, water etc... as well as the fender over the real wheel.
They started this job last weekend and since Lazy Daze (manufacturer of our rig) isn't open on weekends it was Monday before Bill could call Vince and ask some questions. Most of what they were doing was just fine, but they should have started at the bottom and worked up to the roof. Not a big problem but will require some additional work later.
These photos make the damage look really bad, but actually, there are only 2 places that need repaired. It looks like the water damage was caused at the window frame. The molding that goes around the frame before the window is inserted had about a quarter to half inch gap on either side. Just enough for allow water in and over time run down inside the frame and rot the wood. Keep in mind we've lived in our rig 13 years full-time and it's never been in a garage or out of the elements.
This better shows the damage at the lower corners of the window. You can see how dark the wood is at either side. (and at Victor's feet is the outdoor heater he bought to ward off the cold). Now they have to put in new wood framing around the window, replace the insulation and replace a section of paneling on the inside. Bill called Lazy Daze yesterday and ordered the materials to make new window gaskets and some other items like the 2-sided tape they use to hold things together. That should arrive here next week.
We are staying in our daughter's vacation rental next door.
It's quite a lovely place... I may not want to move back into the rig.
Okay, it's very nice, but...really, there's no place like home.
That's All For Today!
