RE: Tankless Water heater

Thanks for the posts! I was looking to install a gas/electric on demand system. not sure if the electric demands are the same if using it with LP gas. worse case is I just put the original water heater back but it is the original and 11 years old.

Tankless Water heater

Hello, Anyone use a Tankless water heater? Just tore up my floor due to water damage and disconnected water heater to do so. My fear is that after I put it back in, it will die shortly afterwards. These 6 gallon water heaters are more expensive than a a 40 gallon home water heater.

RE: 2003 Starcraft Travel Star 21SSO Slide out

Hi Slavco Yes there is. When the slide is in and when I travel, I have poles that try to hold the slide in place. the poles are braced against the seal and the top lip of the Slide. My slide is out right, still working on the floor.

RE: Repair vs. sell

Hi Slavco, How did you get the cabinets out? I did not know they were screwed from the otherside so unfortunately, I got pissed and tore the smaller one on the left side out in pieces only to discover it was installed from the other side, inside the hatch. talk about a project. your pictures are really giving me a good idea! thanks.

RE: Repair vs. sell

I found the leak!!! Water comes down the front of the RV, next to and over the front bunkend, over the diamond plate, where the diamond plate meets the floor in front of the hatch. The wood floor is practically visible. Water must have been saturating wood for years. The membrane on the under belly used to protect the wood actually trapped the moisture in. Rotted the wood to paper-thin flakes. have the front partially torn up down to that membrane. Would it be smart to cover the membrane with some sort of aluminum sheeting? the front part will get coated with boat epoxy and I will install a 2x3 or 2x4 wood frame for a subfloor, then either use traffic master or pergo. fortunately wood under the slide is ok.

I must say that I really love the RV and with a daughter starting college this year and another one in 2 years, I cannot afford a replacement. I have a 2003 Travelstar 21SSO which is pretty much identical to your Antigua. I just did a floor replacement earlier this summer. It was all rotted out from the front to about the entry door. It was a lot of work! Biggest problem I found was with the lack of support from underneath. It all sits on the steel frame rails with nothing supporting it in the middle. I ended up welding in a couple of support braces. Here's some pictures if you want to check it out... https://www.amazon.ca/clouddrive/share/cPde9sOUgMTRjtedL7J4xoHRpWO5viBhj4DPBDSdZAr?v=grid&ref_=cd_ph_share_link_copy If that is the case, I'm screwed! I'm in no way that handy. That is a hell of a job. Nice work though!! Going to try the Boat Floor Epoxy route and see it at least delays the execution. Hey SLS, If you have tools and can think outside the box, it's not that difficult. My biggest constraint was time. If I had more time I would have done more, including redoing the entire front bunk bed. As you can see in the picture, I only did the bottom portion which was completely rotted out. It's good now, solid and dry, it just doesn't look pretty That said, I bought this trailer knowing it would need work, the seller was VERY flexible on the price which helped. Everything inside works great so my only real investment was the floor and 4 new tires. If you have questions or need advice, feel free to reach out, happy to help Thanks! I think my biggest fear or problem is whether or not I have to take the out the slide out and whether I get it back in or not. Going to start something this weekend so I will post some results and pictures.
