The weather is semi-respectable again! Back outside tearing out the interior of the Amerigo
. Lord, what a mess! NOT looking forward to tearing up the floor!!! What little wood I can get in contact with already feels damp. This isn't encouraging. This may end up forcing a removal from the frame - which I'd like to avoid if possible.
Haven't gotten into the walls too much yet. Bound to be some water damaged wood in there too. All in all - I think the way to go is to remove absolutely EVERYTHING and start from the ground up. So, cabinets and seating is all going, as are the wall coverings and electrical
gear. Dunno if it originally had a converter box or not - but what's in it NOW is a fusebox with two circuits (yes - fuses, not breakers). May reuse the fusebox if I don't get a converter box instead. Alternative is a small breaker box with 3-4 circuits in it. The fusebox may be one of those "if it's not broke don't fix it" items though.
Anyway - I'm gonna hope that the damp wood is just from tramped in water that's just now thawing out and not something more serious. Fingers crossed.
Gotta finish the tear-out first. Then I can take care of any floor issues, replace any rotted wood in the walls, seal up the windows
(I'm replacing the front window with a modern egress window with build-in rock shield) as well as basic cleanup and repairs to the glass shell. After that - it'll be time to start rebuilding the interior. Gaucho in the rear, dinette in the front/left corner, everything else pretty much the same as the stock floorplan.
