I have made a TON of progress on our old Scamp! Have the cabinet doors painted, next I want to stencil them... The interior all cleaned and the curtain brackets cleaned and painted, instead of replacing them right now. They look good. I made them silver.
The water tank lines looked full of crud.. YUCK. I mentioned to hubby- instead of merely cleaning them, lets just put in brand new..... But I wanted to test the water tank and faucet pump.
TWO bad things!!! One is that the water tank IS leaking itself. Someone must have left water in it over the winter. And the empty valve won't shut off totally either- it drips at a pretty good rate.
So- It's take the entire tank out and see if I can repair the leak at all. But it'll need a new drainage valve.
THEN I tested the sink pump faucet. Works like a charm........... BUT............ and this is factory original...... the faucet opening isn't postioned OVER the sink bowl- rather it is right over the EDGE of the sink! Therefore, at the end of EACH pump, when the water is just dropping straight down from the faucet- the water of course, goes all over the countertop.
I cannot keep a towel there all the time- what a pain in the neck!!!! Hubby said- well first we will think of some way to merely extend that faucet so it makes it to the sink bowl before you talk me into major overhauling!
I ordered new exterior rivet covers, and both the fresh water cap/filler thingy and the electric cord entrance from Scamp
today, since all those things are a bit shabby.
I'm in a big hurry, I want to USE it and right away!!!!
