It's Always Something

It seems with a motorhome, there is always some little maintenance project that needs to be done.

We still haven't finished applying the Poli-Glow and were intending to get it done before it got hot!  Yeah right.

When we were at the beach last week it rained and we found we had a leak coming inside from the rear window.  Al checked the caulking around the window and decided he needed to re-caulk it.  That was his project for today.  He caulked all the windows.  We had forgotten that the window on our front door had slipped and there is actually a little gap there.  I think he will have to take the window completely out and probably just reseal it.  I think possibly some butyl tape will work   That is a project for another day though.

After we got the last kitty out, I was able to get inside and clean.  I vacuumed and mopped and washed all the bedding, towels and rugs.  Ready to go again!  I kept a blanket on the front dash to protect it from kitty claws, but when cleaning I noticed a few small holes.  They weren't actually scratching on it, but I think their rear claws may have inadvertently made little holes.  I guess I need a covering a little heavier.  I had a piece of carpet runner up there but it didn't cover the entire dash.  Off to Lowe's to get some more I guess.  My plan is to get a carpet type dash cover eventually.  I will add it to my list of "wants" for the motorhome.

  1. Sounds like a good productive day!

    When we replaced a window, we learned the BLACK butyl tape was far superior to the grayish white stuff which will dry out and leak again. Just a hint.

  3. Thanks Karen,

    I had read that one was better, but I couldn't remember if it was the black or the gray. Of course by the time we get around to doing it, I may forget again :)
