Among other things, we're getting ready to get the 12-volt electrical system all wired up. This includes all of the interior and exterior lighting. All of it will get connected to the battery, so we have lights whether Maude is plugged into shore power or not! This is standard in trailers, and it will be kinda sweet, since I'll still have lights even if the power ever goes out <3
So Mike was charging an extra battery we had. He hooked it up last weekend.
When we went out to work on Maude, we were greeted by a fun sulphury smell and an exploded battery! It threw battery acid all over everything, including the back of Maude.
Also exciting has been the amount of rain we've been getting! Unfortunately, we found a bunch of new leaks around the windows at the front, back and next to the door. **Sigh** SO! After getting a bath, Maude is getting caulked some more! Upon inspection, it seems like the rain gutters over the windows were at least part of the source, so Mike recaulked the top edges of the three windows. Hopefully that takes care of the leaks!
Maude is just one hiccup after another, but we continue marching forward!
Until next time! <3 Becca
