Hello and first, thank you all for all the posts and information. A lot of great information!!

I bought a '94 Rockwood popup and only wanted to change the vinoleum flooring and paint the cabinets. Well, after peeling back layers and layers and layers of issues, I decided to take it down to the trailer frame and redo everything. I took hundreds and hundreds of pictures but guess what? Yep, most pictures are gone and I am struggling.

Anyone in the Chicago area willing to lend some help please??

Thanks, lilpebbles7346

Do it in steps ........ floor first.....as few as seams as possible. and seams always over crossmembers. I trick that works for me is to use 4 inch metal electrical junction box covers. I screw them them to the crossmembers and side rails ........now instead of just a narrow piece of metal to screw to I have 4 inches of metal. After the floor is done and the edges repaired and sealed, I would do the flooring.
Next would be the lift system cables etc any wiring behind walls and the walls themselves. Next step the short cabinets/dinette bases because they usually house the convertor. Then the tall cabinets. and the galley last. Bingo all done

Don't worry about cutting holes in the floor etc until the floor is done and then only as needed.

Your repairs need to be strong but light just use good materials.
Ask questions as they arise one at a time. Many good people here to help you along the way ......

The floor is good and solid and glued to the frame. New floating vinoleum is good too. All my side wall repairs are done and working on restringing the electrical wires. Back spare tire panels need a hole for electrical and about to put the back spare tire skin on but in order to try and line it all up square, need to put the lift post assembly bars in. I have the Goshen 1473 lift system and ask, do the brackets that are welded to the outer post, go down towards the floor or up top?

Plus, the new OSB floor, I kept it 1" over the frame in the back and should I staple the skin under the floor B4 I secure the back panels I rebuilt?

Sorry and thank you all. I thought i had this with over 800 pictures on everything but now it's just way overwhelming bcuz i lost over half of the pics and I will not give up!!

Thanks Raycfe and the diagram is 3d and can't tell and I already call Goshen. There's a guy that's been there 18+ years that would probably know but he works 3rd shift and hasn't returned my call
