I finally got my egg home in the driveway, and I'm in love!
Left early this morning before it got hot, checked the tires
, hooked up and came home, no drama at all. Backed into my driveway, then unhooked and pulled it nose-in to the garage. Opened everything up and started cleaning. Vacuumed the rat fur, then in all the cabinets, floor, then wiped all the fiberglass down. Then I stripped all the cushions and curtains, I hand-washed the covers, then spun them dry in the washer, they were 90% dry by then. All hanging and ready to go back on tomorrow. Couple of the curtains disintegrated, but I expected that.
Cleaned the carpet and vacuumed again. While all this was going on I had the battery
on the charger, seemed to take a decent charge again, will see what it's like in the morning.
Found just about what I expected, needs new rivets, window-fixing, and giving it the Zep/RM job.
Also need 3 new tires
and a new spare cover, because the one on there is shrunk so tight that I'll have to cut it off. Gonna play with the fridge
tomorrow, see if it works or not. The furnace
blower comes on, haven't hooked up an LP tank yet.
Ended up after dinner I had the bare foam cushions set back into place, my son was reading and laying on the couch, I was laying on the bed listening to the radio. With all the windows
open and the roof vent, I didn't need a fan at all today and the Scamp
was in the sun for about 5 hours. Temps were in the high 80's.
All in all, I'd say the old girl cleaned up nice, will post before/after pics tomorrow after I re-stuff the cushions. Now I'm going to get some sleep! (not in the Scamp
