The "M" Word

"M" as in maintenance, necessary tasks to keep things looking GOOD and running smoothly....Today it was fix the rusty stair steps leading into the rig...After two years, the paint is not lookin' too good and the steps are rusty....Sparky to the rescue!
She fancies herself a painter and a remodeler, and having repaired a couple of spots on her car awhile back by sanding and priming and painting some touch up spots, she thinks she can tackle the rusty steps! What do you think? (Not bad, not bad, nice job, Sparky! compliments E. Just one problem, you got some black spray paint on the coach!) Egad! Oh, no!
No photos of the paint splotch by the front door, but Eldo got out his trusty spray cleaner that Sparky bought for him at the RV show, and SPOT BE GONE!  Whew! That was a CLOSE one! Sparky was so busy congratulating herself on making the steps look good, she missed the paint splotch. This cleaner cleans black streaks like you wouldn't believe, and it cleaned off Rust Oleum black spray paint that just about had dried off the Tiffin fiberglass without damaging the paint! It's really great stuff!

The rest of the day we spent relaxin' and doing NOTHIN'! Then we headed over the pool in the evening to hear Danno....the karaoke guy with the awesome voice and who usually has the Willi Nelson look-alike/sound alike singing several songs. And by gollie, "Willie"  was there! If you want to hear a guy who REALLY sounds like Willi, click the video button. Wow! This guy could make some money singing like Willie, you would think!


  1. Nice job with the black spray paint to get rid of the rust! It's amazing what a little bit of paint can do to make things look new again.

  2. Rust will take over the whole rig if you do not keep on top of it. I usually tackle a section every month to keep up with it. Spending a lot of time in the salt air does not help:(

  3. Excellent work. . .congrats on a job well done!


  4. Nice job there handywoman Sparky! Thanks for the tip on the cleaner.

  5. You each get a Gold Star for the good work :-)))

  6. Nice job done on the steps, now I need to do ours too. Can you send Sparky over?
