Wow! It's a land of opportunity!

I wish you well. Reach out if you want any ideas. There's a lot of good historic information here, and a good group to ask detailed questions. At the state of your remodel, I'd get rid of the screws that go through the shell, and put some interior strips in place, adhered to the fiberglass. Grind the inside to provide a rough bonding surface and use a fiberglass compatible adhesive. Use the screw holes to hold in place until hard, then remove the screws and fill the holes from the outside. Our experience is wherever there are screws through the shell, they will vibrate and become loose or allow water through to rot the wood. My two cents, but it's what we did and we LOVE ours now that it's complete.

Happy remodeling!

Randy and Ranae

Thanks for the tip! The biggest trouble I’m having right now is getting rid of that dried, oatmeal looking adhesive where the cabinets and closets were. Acetone is barely touching it. We just got done repainting the inside and putting down vinyl plank floors.

Also, I can’t for the life of me find a 31x31 shower pan to go in the bathroom. So I’m just going to have to make something

Find someone with a Fiber Stream and make a negative fiberglass mold, and then create one of your own. I could imagine doing it in place from scratch with wood backing and fiberglass overlay, but not as quickly.

The original shower was located in the corner and was custom made just for the Fiber Stream Company to fit the curve of the corner. You are welcome to inspect my Fiber Stream at your convenience.

Quick question. Just to the right of the oven is a little toggle switch. Any idea what this turns off/on?

Project is coming along.

Try looking on the Fiberstream part of the forum. There's a "resources" post that has a full wiring diagram of the stock Fiberstream. It's not computer generated, but is pretty detailed. It shows the water pump wiring. It also calls out the color coding of every wire and circuit originally on my trailer (and subsequently removed)

Hope it's of use.

I would like to mention here to do some research on what kind of insulation to use when you put your camper back together. Find something that you want to work with and that has good insulating qualities. I was going to use bubble wrap covered with foil but found the insulating factor to be nearly 0. I used foam instead. Just a thought.

Question

There is a 10 inch high platform that the toilet sits on. The shower pan is 3 inches deep. The shower pan sits on furring or padding to raise up the walls of the pan to the top of the platform for the toilet. Both the toilet and the shower pan have extensions to the drains to reach the holding thanks under the back of the trailer. I hope you can see all this in the pictures.

Another view of 10 inch platform needed under toilet to accommodate the shower pan in bathroom. Somewhere in this form for Fiber Stream owners there is a floor plan. That might be helpful for you.
