After two and half years, "The Blue Moon", dubbed that by it's owners, Michelle and Sam, has come back for it's first routine maintenance visit. For any of you who haven't seen the "Shasta Project", you can see the transformation of this trailer from start to finish by using the pull down menu at the top of the page. The only issue so far in over two years is a cracked trim piece above the air conditioner. I'm proud to say that everything else works great.

1 Cracked board above air conditoner.
4 Kitchen counter and kitchen sink will be replaced per customer request.
6 R/H wheel assembly removed. If you look closely, you can see the grease is badly deteriorated, but the brake shoes do still look real good.
7 Right hand close up.
8 Left hand close up.
9 Here is the L/H axle assembly, the brake shoes were sticking very bad when activated. Here you see that I lubricated the shoes, springs, magnet, etc.
10 November 29, 2009 Today I'm working on removing the counter top as the customer wants a new counter installed.
11 The refrigerator had to be loosened and slid back into the hole to facilitate getting the counter out.
12 The oven / stove had to come out as well
14 After the counter was out, I found this spot not only growing mold, but actively wet.
16 This one was a little strange that the mold propagated all the way up here, but it had.
17 So upon inspection, it appeared that the clearance lights were the likely cause of the leak. So I removed them, sealed internally, and externally. I sealed the top of the window as well just to be safe.
18 December 27. Getting ready to cut the new counter top. Smokey Topaz, picked out by the owners.
19 Using the old counter top for a pattern, excluding the sink holes of course.
20 This area is notched out to accomodate the stove.
21 A closer view. It's a little wavy, but this will be under the lip of the stove.
22 Reinforcing the existing counter supports.
24 Initial placement of the counter. Notice that the back splash is a little shorter than the previous. I will put some white trim back there before putting the counter top in permanent.
