Do you replace the existing aluminum siding with the diamond plate or install over top of it? Can't really tell from pics.

Hi Tommie,

I have not done the diamond plate yet on my T310. We did do it on BenB's T264.

I plan on taking the orignal aluminum siding off and then put the diamond plate on in place of it. We did BenB's that way. See here, will be doing the same thing. A Winter Project - Roof Repair (Picture heavy)

In my case, I want to make sure I never had some kind of road water splash get up under the front Darco area. With the siding off I can inspect. I have a few rusted screw heads on the bottom of that lower sheet and that may means something is behind it.

I have seen others who put the diamond plate over the top and it came out really well. I think it was Kathy and Leo (Poppy & Nana) who did theirs this way on their T2499 and it blended in so well it was hard to find it was put on over the top. The caulked in the edges such that it blended right in.

When you said bottom front, I'm assuming you mean the angled knee lower part of the front wall? Not the under the camper bottom up front. If it is the lower knee part, you can do it both ways. If you already sealed the corner on tight, then going over the top is a good idea. Just stop the diamond plate to fit between the moldings. Once install, then Dicor caulk all edges so water does not get behind it. May even want to put some caulk on the old siding at the edges of the plate and like glue it on and over the outer edge to seal out any water. If the corners are still off, then you can put it on without the lower siding piece, diamond late all the way to the outside edge of the camper and the moldings over the top of it. Either way is good.

Non slip shelf liner

It's finally over 30 degrees here in Pennsylvania. I visited Plum Crazy and added non slip shelf liner to the two cabinets where I'll be storing dishes. The extra shelf in this cabinet was added by the previous owner. I am interested in hearing hear what you do to keep your dishes "safe" while traveling. We like our ceramic dishes and will be taking a select few in the TT.

Here's the product I used. Our local Walmart had a much smaller roll. I would have purchased this 24' roll if I would have known about it.

I tried to include a pic but it didn't stick...

We use Corel dishes and some Corning ware casserole dishes. We put the dishes in the drawers under the sink. We all store these different and for different reasons.

As a rule, we do not put a lot of heavy ware up high in a big open cabinet. The sliding around while towing shifts loose things real easy. Most all glass is lower to the floor and in a tighter fitting cabinet or drawer.

We use some of this liner, the grippy kind as needed, ours is white but I found this from your link at Walmart.



These pics should help. Again use these as ideas to spark thoughts on your end. The drawers are full and by being full they help from things shifting.

This our galley setup




Here is our sink drawers.


Top drawer shorter draw has the silverware


Second drawer has the Corel plates. Some of the grippy liver is cut into a plate circle to keep the smallers ones from shifting on the larger ones underneath.


Bottom draw has some of the Corning ware casserole dishes. They work well in the micorwave


Above the sink, we have a top cabinet we have plastic and some glass cups in. To keep the cups from flying all over we put them in a plastic bin.




Under the stove we have a larger drawer, in there are pots and pans.

Above our table (we have a slide camper) there are small upper cupboards. This is mainly paper & plastic products and some glassware. Here is a pic of the table setup





Hope this helps

John

I somehow managed to injure my leg around Thanksgiving. I was on crutches for a while so I couldn't get up on the roof to clean it or check for leaks. After I healed, there was either bad weather or holidays or something that managed to get in the way so that I couldn't get out there and finish the job. Finally today I climbed up there and looked at the roof. It was dirty, but there were no apparent leaks. The previous owner had just redone the roof so it appears to be okay. So I went ahead and put the cover on and it's zipped up for the winter. I will clean it in the spring!

I just bought a cover last month but have not had a chance to put it on yet. Still covered with the tarp. What brand do you have? Are there any brands that last more than a year? I have read many reviews and one of the main complaints was on how quick the covers deteriorate.

I was in the thrift store yesterday and came across a brand new, still in the sealed package Kwikset Hall Passage doorknob set, which I had been planning to pick up at Home Depot et al for some time. It was satin bronze.

Why, you ask? Good question!

Every time the 1950 goes on the road, the bathroom door swings shut and then LOCKS ITSELF. I have to go and get a flat blade screwdriver and fiddle it open.

Every. D@MN3D. Time.

I finally put some Monster Tape over the lock to prevent it from locking but it STILL managed to somehow catch just enough to lock!

So, since I'm at the age where I hope MsDig WILL walk in on me unexpectedly and she's at the age where she will DEFINITELY NOT, I decided that we probably don't need the door to lock anyhow so I decided to get a non-locking passage door knob to replace the current miscreant. At just around 3 bucks, the thrift store knob was just what the doctor ordered.

I got it home and realized that all of the knobs and pulls in the camper are bright brass and the new knob would not match the rest of the hardware. Since both the new and the existing knobs were Kwiksets, I just removed the locking half of the knob from inside the bathroom and replaced it with the new non-locker half. The outside is still bright brass but inside the bathroom, it's satin bronze.

This means that the camper is yet again, another step removed from correct restoration (although I kept the original part in case someone is a stickler for detail on selling day) but unless you knew to look for it, you probably wouldn't notice it.

Oh, and Sunline Fan..?
