Got a couple things done the last couple weeks.

It did get warm enough to paint in the bus. So got the brown cabinet painted black to match the rest.

Under the queen bed in the back.

Made a couple panels that are hinged now.

Also made a door on the new bench seat. Put a piece of smoked plexiglass in, so we can still use the remote on the dvd, and surround sound.

About two years ago, I left home drove about 45 minutes east of my place, when halfway through another town I got pulled over. It was about 8:30am and I'm thinking what could he be pulling me over for. The officer had made a u turn in a fairly busy highway and hit his lights. I knew I hadn't done anything wrong. So I pull over right away and wait for him to come up to the bus. I'm thinking will he come to the front window or the bus door. He came to the door. So I open the door, and tell him good morning and what seems to be the problem. He says I have a cord dragging and thought he should tell me before I get to my destination. That way I would have a chance to stop and get it fixed before stopping. I thanked him and we both were on our way. My power cord must have just fallen down, because it had just a little road rash but still usable. So now I can just unplug the whole works and throw it in the bus, and not worry about my dragging cord.

Its been a real nice week. Finally got some time on the roof.

I have been battling the escape hatches since I started. I should have gotten rid of them from the start. I could never keep them from leaking water. So, out with the old, and in with the new.

Before I could finish the escape hatch holes inside the bus I had to address my falling down ceiling. My fix for this year was to take it all down and reglue it. Almost all of the pink foam was no good from the glue I used orginally. Since we don't use our bus full time, I decided to, for go, the insulation for now. I'll find out later this year if it was a horrible decision. Any way pics from the weekend.

Carpet reglued to ceiling, and big hole to fill.

Final cover, all wired up. Just need to hook up in the breaker panel.

Like all the things you have accomplished! I fully understand when you said it felt good to throw the hatches overboard...things that keep breaking and frustrating me I just usually throw against the garage to break them fully
