Default TM Fixer upper

Hello everyone! I picked up a 2002 2720sl in rough shape. Iím excited to rehab it. Already tore most of the nasty out (see pictures). The flaps will need replacing. The one major problem is itís shell does not align, even with jacks leveling it. Has many rub marks on the inside. Hoping there are technical posts on it!

Hi Robertsonclan, looks like you are taking on a project! We went as deep on our 2005 2720 and also replaced all of the bathroom fixtures, sink, tub and toilet. Tons of help on this forum and the Facebook page. I am still putting things together and am just beginning the plumbing. Have fun.

There is a leveling post in the technical docs section and a video someone made on the Facebook page.

By chance are you replacing the couch? Any suggestions on a new one?

I don't know the brand, but if you look at my pictures page I have pics of one that works well. My furnace is removed and I don't plan to re-add it, but you could make a new housing for it.

We have the queen bed option so don't have the couch. I can't be much help there, sorry.

Does it have A/C?

Leveling the roofs isn't hard. I had to do it to my 1998 2720. That was a long time ago and I don't remember exactly how to do it. I just remember feeling silly for being intimidated about it when I was done. These are the adjusting bolts but there is a sequence that you must follow.



We always used industrial "Orange Cleaner" (available at Home Depot) to remove the rub marks. It works great. Just spray it on, leave it sit for a few minutes and rub it off with a terrycloth rag. It even works well on the outside, where the roof seal rubs on the outside walls. Be sure to keep your seals clean too.
