RV Lifestyle Thoughts
This month we stayed at an Airbnb to get a break from the RV and give me a chance to do some overhaul projects. My wife came up with the idea and at first, I was against it yet it turned out to be good.
I finally completed everything on my checklist! Go me!!!
Clean up wires in cargo Maybe run wires from the roof through the ceiling Clean up roof wires Install new 200-watt panel
The big jobs were fixing the slideout floor and running the wires into the RV through the roof. Yet it was well worth the work. Now every time I move I don’t have to climb on the roof to unplug the solar panels.
I do have some more big renovations coming up on the RV. Right now I plan to repaint the interior and update a few things to make it feel more like a home and look updated. The paint I’m using is stain-resistant and allows you to wipe off stains with ease. Our current paint you can wipe off but it’s not easy nor fun.
After this next renovation, I think I will be done for a while with RV projects. Or at least I hope so!
In case you missed it here is last month’s breakdown. Keep on the journey and path!
