    Lol, tomorrow. I am going to take advantage of the beautiful weather and open her up in the morning to finish up some odds and ends and get her ready for our first trip in 2 weeks.

    That's absolutely great work - looks brand new. Where did you get the new canvas from?

    From Jayco, ordered through my dealer. It was the last one they had and had it to me in 3 days.

    That was a great idea with the shrink tubing. The curtains are great.

    Looking at all you have done I am more gung ho than ever to get started on the repairs to my 1207 Jayco. [RTM] I got the Kool Seal in last week, but it rained. [:(O] I order Gorilla Grip for the ends and are going to do the sides so that it matches the lid. I had a leak and don't have a choice but to a complete re-do on the top and figured it would look odd not to do the rest. [2C] Coin is my only draw back but if I can get most of the prep done I hope to be completely done by the end of the month fingers crossed.

    I do have a question [:!] what product did you use when you replaced the seal that keeps the contact between the top and the sides? I can see daylight when my campers down and think I need a thicker ?gasket? strip.

    I put all new butyl tape along both sides, something else that works ver very well is intrabond tape on seams before putting back on the pieces. If you need any help or pics let me know!

    I guess I didn't word it right, I'm looking for the rubber that goes around the bottom that keeps the air/ rain from entering the camper while driving. Thanks for the help. [RTM]

    Got tired of being intimidated by re packing the wheel bearings and jumped on it. Have to say not bad and was very pleased to find the wheel bearings in good shape. Also for future reference axle grease is a good moisturizer if your nose is dry lmao. Went to itch my nose and did not realize it was on my arm [LOL] [LOL] [LOL]

    Cut the old LP tank off and replaced it with diamond plate, I think it turned out good.
