Restoring a Used Motor Home
By H. Ong
Buying pre-owned stuff almost always guarantees some repairs. A used motor is not exempt from this. You may have exerted your best efforts in picking out the best motor from the set of secondhand motor homes but the most you would come up with is an almost perfect match. It is inevitable that the motor you purchased would need some modifications and a few repairs. For this matter, knowing how to restore one would make your repair project a bit easier.
Restoring a used motor starts with assessment. Assess the extent of the repairs and changes your motor needs and the costs of these repairs. Remember -- if the cost of these repairs are twice the price you pay for the motor itself, get that warranty and refund your money. But, if the costs are minimal, then go ahead and start your restoration project.
After assessing the extent of repairs needed, identify the tasks that you need to do to restore your used motor to its former glory. Take note and differentiate between needed repairs and extraneous changes like personal color preferences. Prioritize your list by putting the most important and necessary repairs at the top and the extra tasks at the bottom. It is also wise to set a schedule for doing each
task. Unless you have a motor the size of a shoebox, the restoration process does not and could not happen overnight. By streamlining your tasks, you get to maximize your available resources.
Identifying the tasks needed in restoring your used motor is just the tip of the restoration project. The work would be finished faster if you enlist the help of others like your friends and family members. You can divide the tasks and work schedules among yourself and your helpers to make the restoration project go smoother. For example, you can hardly hold a hammer while balancing the beam you need at the same time. Having somebody hold it for you would undoubtedly minimize mistakes and make the job easier.
Coming to the work proper, stick to the schedule you make to ensure that all tasks are covered and done on time. This way, you minimize the risk of doing a later job before a needed task. For example, replacing inside fixtures like curtain rods or counter tops must be done first before painting the interior of your used motor home. If you paint first before doing the necessary hammering and replacing, you risk cracking or damaging the paint. This also ensures that no task is done twice especially in the case of having helpers.
These tips are neither step-by-step guides for restoring your used motor nor replacing your motor fixtures. Rather, this is a guide to ensure that your restoration project would go as smoothly as possible. If there is anything worse than a million-dollar motor home, it is the destruction of a perfectly good and cheap used motor because of careless and unplanned restoration projects.
