Then and Now





I thought I'd post a few pictures comparing Myrtle's original condition to her condition now. In these photos you can see her back view and an interior ceiling view. In the back view photos you will see how much more vibrant her color is after washing and waxing. In the ceiling picture, where the ceiling tiles are missing you can note the new wiring that was in progress.

Looks good, gives me hope for my rig. Why was new wiring required?

The wiring needed to be redone as; there were shorts, old fabric wrapped wires, some wires were also cut and reconnected poorly, they were all on one circuit and there was no common ground!

Myrtle's looking so fly! Her interiors seem so cozy. Yeah, your efforts to wash and wax this big momma have certainly gone a long way. This just made me want to home a motor home even more!

Thanks Erwin! Camping in myrtle is like a lovely cabin on wheels. Retro yet well equipped!
