It ended up taking me most of the day to repaint the top of the bus after the chipping away and cleaning that I did yesterday. If I had gotten after it I could have done it in a couple of hours but..... visitors, drinking some cold ones and then watching a movie in the bus slowed down progress! But alas, a pretty good day.

You should know by now that a five minute job takes five hours, I thought you were smarter than that.  Grin

Did you ever find or get rid of the mice?

So if I read this right...You have a s#%t house mouse that farts candles...Cable

 Thanks, I just spit Pepsi all over my laptop!
That was funny!!!  There was no finding them they were obviously everywhere.  We had to get rid of the bedding and take everything out and clean with bleach top to bottom.

Well believe itor not my big hiney fit in the cabinet behind the bed.  We got the old bolts out and now need to go back in with the new.  I am going to swing by Grainger to pick up some stainless molly bolts.  That way I can bolt it on from the outside and not have to crawl back in that hole to get the nuts on new bolts.  Once that is done I can put everything back together.  Next time I will pick an easier project like peace in the middle east or paying off the national deficit Grin

The next project is going to be a doozie!!  I intend to pull the gen, freshtank, black tanl and everything in bay #3.  Attempt to fix the main tank fuel guage while I am in there.  Then remote mount the gen radiator and put everything back in the way it should have been done in the first place.

If you lived closer i'd try to put you to work Grin.  Yes the bus was set up wrong.  For a cooler climate it would be OK but down here it is not OK.  It is set up where the radiator fan on the gen is turned backwards to push air through the radiator and ultimately out through a grated hole in the bay door.  It works great with wind hitting the left side of the bus where the air intake is located.  Get a wind on the other side and it won't allow the hot air to escape.  It overheats the gen and shuts it off.  Loverbus and I talked about it a long time ago and he suggested remote mounting the radiator.  That is what I am going to do.  It can't be a 1 part fix as the fersh tank, black tank and gen are all in the same bay.  So if I have to take it all out I might as well tackle the fuel guage sending unit trouble, whatever that may be and if I can get to it.
