We tackle the constant squeaking, creaking, groaning, and banging noises heard when our Cortez is moving by upgrading our suspension.
It’s true — We don’t have mice problems because we found a snake inside our RV! How we wrangled a snake from our motorhome ourselves after spark plug work!
Since L and I have had our 1965 Clark Cortez motorhome, we’ve had a problem getting our RV to reliably start. It’s finally time to test if our engine is healthy …
Our steel beast sounded like a cartoon raging bull who was held back but also taunted with a waving red flag — The desire to run was more than present but something somewhere was keeping our beast at bay.
One would believe if a vehicle runs before taking a fuel tank out, once the tank was reinstalled, the vehicle would run again. However, we learned this is not the case after our tank restoration.
Our welder and friend returns to save us and our Cortez — His job is to weld two threaded bungs to our fuel tank which will nearly finish off this tank restoration.
It was problem after problem for what should have been a quick job restoring our antique RV’s fuel tank …
It was a simple job, but it got us custom mudflaps, which will protect our RV.
“Everything we do with this hunk of **** metal just leads from one disaster to another one,” Andy cusses at our antique RV in his angriest outburst yet. Find out why replacing our clutch cylinders had him announcing he was done with our RV dream.
Finding petrol spraying from the front of our Cortez’s carburetor was not what we expected, nor planned to tackle, but when you have an antique RV predicting next jobs is a rarity.
Andy and I tackle painting our roof, but the end result is not what we expect, which allows me to learn many lessons in the process.
We’ve called back our teammate and professional welder to tackle our most serious welding job yet — Welding new metal panels where our roof holes are. The best news: Now our RV is essentially water-tight!
Our first hired help arrives to weld new roof supports, but it was more than that — It was our welder’s positivity, his lack of hesitation when he saw our motorhome, and his desire to help one possibly ridiculous couple weld their dreams together.
