Got a few off days so I started gutting Adelida. Whew, lotsa nasty in there. I will start adding in tips for you based on what I have learned during each endeavor. 

Pro tip #1: Always where gloves when removing old walls. It is not cool to realize you have a rat skeleton in your bare hand!  Ewww NASTY

Thats right, tearing out old cabinets, grabbed what I thought was some old debris…nope, rat skeleton. Whats worse is I held it for a few minutes before I looked and saw what it was. 

Pro tip #2: Always try to keep a few panels for templates, notice my pile of templates and pieces in the above photo.

I still have to pull the old hose and power cord reels, the hot water heater and the hydraulic brake system. After that, it will be time to remove the belly pan.

I wish I could have saved more to reuse but the old plastic parts are so brittle. They just cracked and split when I was removing them. Oh well, I wanted to gut and redo the whole thing anyway. 

She looks a mess now but she will be awesome. I have big plans for Adelida!

It doesn’t look like it but that is a 16ft trailer. It is overflowing with Adelida’s  insides. From the fisher price sized window surrounds to the old overhead bins. Cant wait to put her back together with my own idea’s. 

First tool Casualty. It’s ok, this was a horrible tape measure, may it rest in pieces..lol.
