I'll bet he said golly gee honey this is worse than I thought. or something like that. My wife says it would have taken hours and two bars of soap inserted oraly to settle me down if that happened to us.

All the vintage campers we`ve worked on have had 1x2`s running across the bottom of the walls. We were shocked to find that the Shasta 1500 had 3/4 x 3/4 running across the bottom. Next we cleaned all the rotten wood off (brushed off really) and measured for new.

We were in the corner of the hotel parking lot on concrete. 102 degrees, no shade and no electricity. At this point we both started feeling really sick and dizzy. Bo is really white so by this time he has started to burn. I`m lucky in the burn department as those of you that have met me know I`m a mixture so my darker side was starting to show . The hotel was great, giving us ice and water etc. By mid afternoon, people who had been watching out of their windows, started to come out and check on us and our progress.

Once she was straightened back up we used 3 inch screws through both horizontal 1 bys into the treated 2x4s. she straightened out nicely although her once perfect skin is now all damaged on 3 lower corners

12 and 1/2 hours and we had her skin back on and good old duck tape on her damaged corners. Now to find food and a room. We had magnetic lights with us as the PO had stated that he had never tried the lights. Just for beeps and giggles we plugged in and low and behold she had lights. UNBELIEVABLE!
