Thanks for the warm welcome, guys! We didn't have a chance to test out the AC yesterday, as we had to order a new switch for it. The knob is broken off in the old switch. The new part should be in tomorrow or Tuesday, but since we're going camping on Wednesday with my in-laws, it may be a week and a half or so before we can work on it again.
We did spend the day yesterday working on our camper, though, just doing small odds and ends and cleaning it up. I installed a new lock on the outside storage compartment door, and we washed all of the mattress and cushion covers. We also got the rear jack stands operational again. One had a fairly badly bent foot, and neither wanted to move up or down. A little pounding with a hammer straightened the foot out, and penetrating oil got the jacks moving again. We also adjusted the hinges on the front door so it would close properly, and reattached the trim around the countertops. My wife cleaned pretty much every surface inside and out to her disinfectant standards, and we installed carpet in the outside compartment so my blocks and newly purchased chocks wouldn't slide around. I had to reattach the brackets that hold the supporting rods above the beds, as the screws had all been pulled loose. We had to rethread the elastic bands back through to the final hole on the front bed and added a new clamp so the cord would stay looped for the last attachment point. The bottom part of the door had to be adjusted so it would close properly, and we also removed the entire top portion of the door from the camper to straighten out the metal plates. They were all jacked up, bent, and crooked. After we straightened them out and reinstalled the door, everything works as it should.
We also discovered a screen room that we didn't even know we had under one of the dinette seats. I'm pretty sure it attaches to the awning and snaps to the front side of the camper to keep bloodsucking evildoers out. I didn't have the time or the energy to investigate that theory further, though, as we had done all of this work in the 104 degree high humidity heat of North Texas.
It took a lot of work, sweat, and rest periods in the house in front of the ac vents, but we've got pretty much everything whipped into shape and working as it should. Most of the fixes were very minor, but needed to be done. I think the previous owners just kind of let things go instead of doing minor fixes when they were needed. As a result, the small stuff really added up by the time we got ahold of the camper. Guess that's what you are going to face when you get a deal, right?
