Its been over a month now since I purchased my 2005 Eagle. I have done a ton of updates over the past month, and the camper is really looking good.

In a previous post I mentioned that I ran all the test and everything was working except the heater. Since then I added the following updates.

  1. New 12v marine battery and wiring
  2. Got the fan to work but it only works in one direction
  3. Fixed rotting wood in floor and added new laminate flooring and trim
  4. Added new outside LED lighting
  5. Removed heater, not working
  6. Clean up wood rot on front exterior corner and patched with waterproof board
  7. Added a waterproof to protect from sun and rain exposure
So, I don't have a picture but the first item on my list was to get the 12v electrical system up and running. I bought a marine battery from Walmart and some thick 12v wiring from amazon. I ran the wire from the car battery to the battery separator and it the powered right up.

The fan was only working in one direction. I think the in/out switch is busted. So I took it apart and swapped the wires on the switch, so the air was forced out of the camper. Ill have to add a new switch later.

I ripped out the old nasty flooring and noticed some wood rot. So, I patched it up with some flex seal, but I expanded the area around the door for extra water proofing.

After removing the old flooring I noticed one of the original builders wrote "Eagle" on the floor. Super cool.

I have never installed laminate flooring before, but it was surprisingly easy to install. This laminate is waterproof and has a lifetime warranty. I also added some trim. Looks and feels great!
