Hi Norma G,
This is Laura - Yes and we will call her "Ziggy".
When Bill brought her home I was less than enamored to put it mildly. Not what I expected or hoped for and it has taken me a bit to get on board with the revamp or re-glamp, so it is my fault she has been called "The Skank". Not a nice name. She was pretty nasty. She is getting better by the week and I am getting really excited about both the project and the prospect of camping. This is a whole new world for us, a new adventure and we are thrilled to have found this forum for all of its wise advice and support. At this point we can say "Bill is Forgiven!" and look forward...

Hi Laura,

Looking forward to meeting Ziggy this spring.

Dean

New door hinges installed this morning including stainless steel hardware. This job took a little longer than I anticipated (big surprise there, NOT) but the delays were in removing the old bolts that had been painted/rusted in place. Laura's busy finishing the cleanup of the inside of the cabinets and we'll be ready for our "test."

We plan on driveway-camping at least once to test our setup. Then we'll prolly take it out somewhere to get a road test as a shakedown to verify we have everything we need for really camping this coming season.

Ooooo, it's getting so very close...so exciting.

I love it....SO nice....not to be confused with that Ziggy cartoon! We have named ours DeEggo...as in "Where in the World is Carmen San DeEggo" ....DeEggo to the friends. I bet no one is as thrilled as Bill to be forgiven!!

external freshwater holding tank

It's crazy cold here in Danville because winter swept in overnight. The current temperatures outside are 24 and the wind is blowing about 20 mph so I'm figuring windchill in the single digits. Much too cold to be working outside unless it's an emergency so I'm staying inside to work on our new fresh water tank.

Ian provided the motivation to abandon the scummy internal slimey water tank that was almost impossible to clean. Using Ian's instructions, I have used a five gallon cooler that we already had but weren't using and modified the valve to include the brass fitting that'll allow a connection to the external water supply line on the side of Ziggy.

With Dale's help from Central Kentucky Hardware and Ian's advice (thanx again, Ian) I was able to complete the modifications and have a posted picture of our "leak check" for you below. It'll be a while before we get to test this out in the field but this project is done. What's next?...

We are still working on menial tasks while the weather rages up and down. Went from 15" of snow and cold last weekend to staring 60F in the eye this weekend. Have been staying focused painting cabinet doors (they were painted white, now they are a lovely minty greeny blue), and making curtains and pillow covers. Pics will come when we get Ziggy Stardust put together again. This is Laura (not Bill).
