I found a 20 foot 1975 Fleet-Wood Prowler back in February.
I started working on it as I could.
I got it camping ready in late April or early May. I love it.
Then...
The old wall air conditioner quit. I don't know how long it has been in this camper.
By the time I got ready to replace it the temps were high 90s with humidity
equally high. (Alabama Summers are tough)

I finally started working on it last week (No Rain)
It took a Sawzall to cut thru liquid nails and open the wall for framing.
The next day I installed a new air conditioner. Red Neck Engineering.
Now I'm about where I was in April... [emoticon]
I have the camping bug again, but I'm gonna wait till the temps fall
out of the 90s.

This has been a frustrating, but satisfying experience to say the least.
Lets say I spent a lot of time on 'Plan B', then 'Plan C' and so on...

Like the movie saying... 'I'm getting too old for this Sxxx'...
Satisfying, but I don't want to do another.
I have one small project left.
I'm gonna name it 'BTDT'... I have.
A neighbor made me the vinyl lettering to put on the nose of my camper
and another set for the rear.

If you have ever wanted to start renovating an old camper...
Have patience, money, time, and a sense of humor.

Congratulations on finding a way to get out and camp. You will look back on this someday with pride on how you figured everything out. You could consider giving up on the wall unit AC someday and getting a roof top model. But, it's hard to beat the wall units for there cheap price.
