Motor home update

Monday, June 03, 2013

I have been working on the motor home. It is still a work in progress.
After doing some cleaning in the kitchen area. I was going to paint the trim around the cabinets light ivory but I did not like it. I then decided to try black. I really liked the black as it brought out the wood on it to me.

We took the handles off and painted them silver because that was the spray paint we had.
What was interesting is when my hubby put some of the handles back on it matched the stove and the fridge.

This what it looked like.

This is what it looks like on the other side. My hubby is taking old caulking off on the outside so not all the handles have got back on. We even painted the grate at the bottom of fridge.

I have a lot of work to do in the bathroom yet. I may do the trim in white to match a shower curtain and picture I am putting in there. The biggest problem I have is the surround around the tub. It is really got a lot of soap scum on it. I think someone lived in the motor home for awhile. Not uncommon in this area.
I have read not to use scouring powder because it leaves residue in the tanks. I usually use baking soda and a scrunchy to get it off, but I was afraid the baking soda would do the same.
I can't use the chemical soap scum products because of my slight asthma. IF YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS LET ME KNOW IN COMMENTS.

Here is the front of the motor home. As you can see we are still working on that too.
Hope to have some more pictures when done.
Let me know what you all think.

  I wanted to make sure my comment would read. Try 1/2 cup baking soda and don't jam it in the drain, just spoon it in and the rest in the sink. Use 1 cup white vinegar and let them fiz. Wait 15 minutes or so and then run hot water down the drain. Can you leave the drain open to let the water run off in your yard?

A marvelous place to ask questions and get help is on the Good Sam Web Site.
RV,net Go to the Open Road forums and down to the General Forum. Then to the General Questions. Most people post on that one and many old timers have lots of answers.

The motor home inside looks in really good shape. Your finishing touches are looking great. Another thing I learned many years ago from an old timer that gave a seminor on hints was: I use Cascade liquid in my black water tank. That's all. About 1/2 cup Cascade liquid and 2 - 3 gallons of water. No odors. I also don't flush a lot of paper down the tank. I keep a zip lock bag in the bathroom for wet toilet paper.

  I don't think baking soda would hurt your tanks. I put baking soda down my motor home drains and then follow up with white vinegar. Let it fiz a while and then run hot water down the drain.
