I weighed the a/c and the hotwater heater, plus all the plywood surround and such. It comes to about 125 lbs. I am quite sure all of that on one back corner was causing problems with swaying.
The hot water heater is very rusty because it was sitting in water and it was never drained. I tossed it. Didn't look worth saving.
I have two different kinds of ant poison in the trailer now and I've scrubbed out most of what I can reach. I have had a fan going in the bench compartment for several days. When I have to close it all up I am going to put in two of those water absorber things meant for closets. I figure that will continue to dry it out. Eventually I'll be in Utah (where they recently set a record for 3% humidity) so I think it will eventually be REALLY dry, then I'll glass it over.
The stove top was starting to rust, so I scrubbed it down with steel wool and sprayed it with high heat grill paint
. I was worried about the silver but it looks greqat. Only the tiny silver insects stuck in the paint
are marring the new finish (urgh!).
The big challenge right now is trying to figure out how to hold the window in place since the original brackets are long gone.
