Last Fall I took the bus out for work. I’m an Independent Insurance Adjuster and sometimes when I go to work a storm there are no hotels to stay in. So I brought my motorcoach to stay in. That worked out well and saved me a bundle on hotels. I stayed in a nice RV/Mobile Home park in Mobile, Alabama called Pala Verde. It was quiet, reasonably priced, and conveniently located. I was there for 2 months.

While I was there I bought a Splendide 2000 Washer/Dryer Combo unit. I was going to put it in the kitchen, under the counter. When I went to do it I realized the plumbing and layout were a hot mess. So I postponed that. Just as well, I only had one day off a week to work on the RV.

When I got back to Houston in December I decided to engage in a remodel and get some revenge on things I’ve hated since I bought the RV. That meant the “diner” seat and couch of disgust and Motel 6 carpet were going on the curb.

As I tore out crap I realized that the coach had been reconverted at least once, maybe twice. It seems to have been build under the no pound left behind program, using the heaviest crap they could find for everything. I tore all of it out, down to the frame.

I found a few minor water leaks, two in the front and a couple around AC units, the skylight, etc. The AC units are mounted to what should have been roof / escape hatches. Below are some photos of what came out and what it looked like before and after.
