RE: I am looking for Vinyl Stripping

check out these on Amazon. They have a lot of different products. I bought some to dress up the rolled edges of roof. Color matched pretty well in my case. No idea how good or bad any of them are though. If nothing else it gets you the jargon used to describe the stuff.

RE: 1997 Rexhall roof maintenance

hey ya... have a '97 as well. peeling the roof coating off was maybe a good thing, perhaps it was not don't right or at all since '97? So you get yi start fresh. I would say to take as much if you've already peeled off a good percentage, try and get more off if you can. After that it's just a matter of sanding down the top a bit, then sealing the fiberglas not sure if just a few coats of primer will be enough or not. But primer then paint. I used a marine deck top paint & primer by Rustoleum. It worked great plus it's marine grade so hoping t0 get a good 4+ years. Cost me about $200 in materials yo put 2 coats if primer and three coats of the Topside boat deck paint. you might need 3 or 4 primer coats to ensure sealing all those pinholes and any spider vein cracking in the finish. I probably coild have stopped at 2 coats of paint but i had an extra can and a half of paint so wtf right? Dicor has a product to coat fiberglass RV roofs. It looks pretty easy to apply. There is a video on YouTube demonstrating the whole process. I figured the cost would have been in tge same $200-$250 range for materials. But do not worry you didn't ruin anything. As i see it, this simply showed you it's long over do for a recoating. When i sid mine i took the opportunity to redo the lap sealing as well as cleaning up the front & rear seams with new tape then new lap sealant over that. so replaced two roof vents (only about $40 in Amazon) It took about 10 days and a extra pain pill each day, for me to it all done. Do yours right & don't rush as the layers really need ti dry between coats no matter what products you use. Mine now looks like new. Yours will too! Make it a fun thing buying the old girl a pretty new hat fir the summer. FYI, the Rustoleum and Dicor products go on exactly the same way.

RE: Front outlets dead

grab your multimeter & check the outlet voltages. If you don't have a MM buy one soon as it will be your best friend RV tool. Also grab a 110v continuity tester. They plug into each receptacle and report back any wiring faults. While not likely simply replacing house batteries will cause this issue, it's kind of amazing how RV wiring issues seem to sense just when it's right to cause maximum confusion. Do your other AC receptacles work and show 120v? Remember they are all wired in series so if one in that circuit has an issue another, several or all on that circuit can fail or provide low voltage. Electrical, well 120v, is pure black magic to me so just sharing things I've stumbled into.
