That looks really nice. What did you use for the backsplash?

It's actually meant for that. It's plastic. I got it at Menards. It's not cheap, $20 a piece, IIRC, and I needed 4 to do both sides. The edge trim is for a different product that was right by it.

I replaced the trailer plug/wiring lead somebody had put on previously. The splices weren't waterproofed, and it was to short to reach the side of the pickup bed. I also put a runaway brake switch on it, just because. All connectors are adhesive heat shrunk, and I put adhesive heat shrink over the insulation on both sides also, should stay nice and dry.

Is the landing gear motor working yet? If so how is it?

Yep, works great. Faster than cranking by hand.

Well, more bad weather so I couldn't replace the back subfloor again. I cut out the new flooring instead. I was going to remove the other stuff I put down, but the glue stayed on the subfloor instead of the cheap flooring, so I just laid the new stuff on top. It doesn't get glued, so I can deal with the old stuff later if it becomes a problem.

I was hoping to keep a 12" pattern across the vertical part, but my remnant was just long enough to cut the two large pieces out of, with 1/4" extra, talk about luck. I got it centered at least.



The heater is going to be permanently mounted under the sink, with the new converter above it. I'm going to remove the door and make a new wood panel to cover the hole to mount them in.

On another note, I have enough of the side of the vinyl left to cover the table. Anybody see a good reason not to glue the normally glueless vinyl down to the table? I'll jsut paint the edge of the table turquoise. I'm also rethinking painting the cabinets with that floor in there. I think I might paint the benches, the couch, and all the doors in the camper tropical turquoise, and leave the rest of it alone. We'll see. It matches the floor quite well. The cushions are loaded up in the car, I'll get them to the upholstery shop monday...I'm afraid that's going to hurt.

Except that it's not heat resistant like laminate, I see no reason not to use the vinyl on the table top. I'd think it would be fine so long as you don't set anything hot down on top of it.

The floor looks really nice! I've always liked that black/white pattern. For your table I'd consider just painting on the squares and then put liquid plastic/Varathane over it.

Both of theses are very good ideas...
and I know for a fact that stick on tile would make a pretty nice table top,but like has been said Don't put anything hot on it, and we want talk about how I know both of those facts. Lets just say after a long hard job of covering a table I am still upset at myself

Looking good, Jared! I've considered chess board for when I redo my floor. I thought half black might be too dark. I like light. Seeing yours, maybe not. BTW, are you saving a piece for the fridge door insert?

Maybe I shouldn't tell you about the whoppin' I got for putting a hot clothing iron down on a formica counter top when I was a kid... laminate is NOT tile.

Just about anything can melt or distort. Maybe this should be an "education" moment?

I'm going to paint it turquoise to match the upholstery.

I put the vinyl on the table, also. I subscribe to the Darwin theory.

It looks like this weekend should be nice enough to tear out the gray water tank and replace the rear subfloor.

I got the quote back from them, $1200, yikes! 22 yards of marine vinyl. It's going to be turquoise on the front panels, ivory on the sides and back, with black piping.

I have to bring a bench in tomorrow so we can match the color.
