I went inside, and it was chilly. Yay! Air temp coming out of the air conditioner was less than 49 degrees. Yes, 49 F not 49 C.

Inside wall temps were about 66 degrees including the floor and ceiling.

I was happy with that, since that little ac is only a 5000 btu one. Unfortunately, it would not hold that temp during the day. It was still cooler inside this afternoon that what it was outside, but I wasn't happy with the results, and didn't have my camera along to take any pics.

You remember, I added a piece of plastic at the front of the coach to help keep hot air from the pilot/copilot area, so I am sure that helped.

Then again, that little thing doesn't move an extreme amount of air.

Just one more test in the real world, to see how it might work.

Here is a cute little number that I have used on occasion. This is a trim router that is also powered by the Ryobi 18Volt battery. It takes a 1/4" router bit, and does okay.

The newer version has a larger more stable base, which would be a plus, because this one is difficult to keep stable. The newer version should be much more stable and has a depth gauge on it as well.

Here is the new version of the cordless Ryobi trim router. Might have to get one of them sometime. Looks like it should be much more stable, due to the larger base.

Left the ac on last night. This is what the outside of the windows looked like this morning. It was near 80 degrees outside, and in the 60's inside the coach. Single pane windows. Yup. High humidity.

Anybody remember this? Yup, the wheel well template. I am finally going to get around to using it. After a little clean up today, I pulled this out and braced the ends just a little to get it ready.

Now, I just need some fiberglass mat to get started.

I have a question for anyone with experience with using the Kreg jig for joining plywood together. Any special considerations or things to look out for.

My son bought me a Kreg kit for Christmas and I am about ready to start using it.

Any info you have would be appreciated. Thanks!

Went out to the motor home this morning. Outside temp was close to 80 degrees. After running ac all night, we looked like this.

Not bad for a little 5000 btu ac.

Went shopping again today. Needed some Lacquer thinner.

Also needed some Fiberglass Resin.

Then I also bought 3 of these.

All that for preparation of starting to lay up some wheel wells. Something a little like this.

Now, I know this looks horrible. The fact is, most of the wrinkles are of the plastic being doubled over, underneath the glass cloth. While the glass is not perfectly flat, it's not as bad as it looks.

Hey, if I don't like it, I can always do something different. I'll see what it looks like tomorrow. It's dry now, but I'm too lazy to go back out and check it out, to see what it looks like. Lol.

One of the things I needed to do before putting the wheel wells in, was to get the wall plywood in, and now that the wall plywood is in, I can work on the wheel wells. Yahoo!

Also need to update the spread sheet. Prior total was $7435.29. Today's spending amounted to $82.58. Brings the new total up to $7517.87.

I'm thinking things will start to move a little faster now. Sure hope so, anyway.

Thanks for following.
