The engine runs great and doesn't appear to have any blow by. I drove it home (about 60 miles) and that's about as far it will be driven without new tires. The tires look good, no weather cracking but I won't take any chances with 12 year old tires. I did not like the tile or the carpet so it's all been removed (the tile was fun to remove). My arms and hands still hurt. I had the kitchen bench seats and backs reupholstered. Haven't done anything with the driver and co-pilot seats.

When I picked up the coach, the generator ran and was sending voltage on the two legs. I suspected the auto switch was not working. After a good charge on the batteries, the switch is working now. The oil leak on the engine appears to be from the filler cap. The Aqua Hot has been bypassed.

The cracked tiles cracked because (I believe, not 100% sure) from the original RV refrigerator leaking. There doesn't appear to be any leaks now. There was some delaniation under the tile but I believe I removed the top layer in two spots and fixed it with epoxy. The sub floor is in good shape now. It's level and no soft spots. About 33% complete on the wood flooring. Putting down an engineered hickory glued down flooring.

Still have lots of work ahead of me but hope to finish the flooring in a couple weeks. I removed everything except the kitchen and bathroom cabinets. I saved the tile in the toilet area so the toilet is still in place.

Glad to be a new member to WOG. This is my first Wanderlodge. I have converted a couple buses (Eagle and MCI).
Gary
Congratulations Gary and welcome to the zoo. Sounds like you are experienced enough to face the challenge. Good luck with your purchase and hope to see you on the road sometime.

Welcome Gary. Quite a few repairs completed already. Way to go.

I lived in Colleyville as a youngster. After 8th grade they sent us to the big city of Grapevine. All that's changed now. The place we live is now a housing development.

Welcome Gary
I stopped by Mr Oliver's the day after you picked it up Just wanted to look at it and I was on my way to Arkansas. She would not tell me your name. But you found us now so that's great.

Lots of good guys here and we will help if we can.

Max

Congratulations Gary and welcome. If you have converted a Bus, this is going to be a snap for you. I started a MCI conversion and discovered how much work and money it took and ended up giving up and buying a BB. Look forward to meeting you and seeing the bus.
