What a drag! The service department says the Body Control Module needs to be replaced. Basically it is the component (computer) that controls everything in the van except the engine and the transmission.) It had to get transported from Edmonton and is supposed to arrive today or tomorrow at the dealership so we wait. During the wait we made a decision about what stain to go with for the cabinetry inside. Our initial choice was no longer available (that happens to us a lot) so we bought another one that is really close and happens to be less money. I also decided how I was going to seal the edges of the shower base and the corners in the shower. I'll put down a strip of Flexseal tape first on the shower base lip and onto a 90° vertical wood back edge. Marine fir plywood will follow that. The corners between where the marine fir comes together will get a layer of Flexseal as well. Overtop of all that will be the vinyl sheet (in reality it's flooring material) and caulked corners. Back to doing some housework!
Calvin here - after spending almost 33 years in education as a high school teacher, elementary teacher, and elementary administrator, it was time to retire! I did so happily and with no regrets; it was a terrific and fulfilling career. I do enjoy building projects as the design and building process is very therapeutic and you see a completed functional product in the end. Now to combine the build with another of Angela's and my passions - travel - is something we're really looking forward to.
