I welcome another 'newbie Trillium
! Mine also has the front curbside window (8 in total: Large front & rear, one bathroom, one kitchen, plus one curbside and one driver side window in the front and rear dinette areas) Got mine 4 months ago, and, besides a LOT of measuring, dreaming, serious contemplation, all I managed to get done before the snows hit was to remove, change out and re-seal both roof vents. What a job!!! Took me 4-5 hours atop a ladder just to get the many, many layers (ineffective at best) of several types of sealant that had been piled on top of the bathroom vent to roof join. Almost as long for the main roof vent. Seems to have accomplished what I set out to...no leaks
as yet. (Fingers crossed!) Now it's so cold out, I can do no more until spring. (Discovered the hard way that my 'Trudy Truillium' is too tall to fit through my garage door into my 4 car garage.
So....can't work on her over the winter as I'd planned. Darn!) Are you planning to do the work on yours by yourself, as I must? I'm planning to pull and re-do the wiring, as well as replacing all water lines; buy new tires
with a new spare too. Also, I'd like to change out the existing countertop with an arborite or formica one. All of which will be a miracle upon completion, given that I have zero experience and precious little knowledge
. What I do have going for me is a strong determination and a seemingly endless source of energy (when it's something I want to do
Here's to you!! Have fun. Please share your retrofits/renovations/refurbishing with the rest of us Trillium
