I used white roofing sealer to coat my roof vents and after 1 season it hold pretty well.
What did you scale for rear axle?
My 11-10 long Lance puts 9000 lb on rear axle (and I removed rear generator to put Honda on front hitch), so even this is shorter, the first concern for SRW would be overloading.

My 11-3 scales 6200 on the rear axle.

I weighed my last camper but the scale didn't differentiate front from rear, only total.

This camper is actually a few hundred pounds lighter than my 9.5' camper.

Actually about 600 lbs lighter. It just looks a lot bigger. [emoticon]

How did it put 9,000 on the rear axle?

I wonder if there's any chance that this is the original anode rode??

Cleaning the old owners out is sometimes interesting.

I got my new toilet seat installed and the bathroom scrubbed out today.
I also sanitized and flushed the entire water system. The water heater was a joke. I'll bet its never been flushed out in the last 24 years.

This camper didn't have a shower curtain so I took the curtain and rod out of my other camper.


[image]

It didn't have any drain stoppers either so I robbed them out of my other camper too. [emoticon]

[image]

The camper came with a 1" aluminum blinds and one that went half way down the door. I replaced that one with one that covers the entire door.

Still lots more to do.

Today I replaced the vent/emergency exit over the bed.

The duct tape the previous owner used didn't quite do the job.

Getting closer.

If has the original converter/charger you might consider upgrading to a newer unit that will vary the charge rate depending on the condition of the battery. I killed at least one battery before I changed mine to a newer unit.
I have a 1999 Lance 1020 and you've given me s few ideas to spruce mine up. The interior of yours is exactly like mine except for the fabrics.
The one thing I'd really like to get is new seat cushion foam. 20 year old foam just doesn't work well anymore.
