Well that was fun!
I could not remove the skin without removing the tank filler on the exterior. It was of course completely rusted in place. I finally had to get the sawzall out and cut it loose. I’ll put the exterior fitting back, but I will probably not put a fresh water tank back in. I’ll leave the plumbing in place in case I change my mind.
After many failed attempts to shove it out the door or wrangle it out of the bunk, I finally had to cut the box spring in half. I don’t think the rear framing is bad enough to replace entirely and create a big hole for the box spring to be removed. I must say, the lingering closet funk on my hands and clothing has me convinced that was the right move. Ewww
Back to removing screws and twisty nails…But first some garage organization!
