Regency Entry Steps

For those of you members that asked me to share with the community here I am.
Regency entry steps and many coaches do not have the same rise and foot area on each step. See in the picture below, the top rise is 10.5 inches. The second step is 8 inches. The different rise amounts cause a tripping hazard, especially for older Barth owners. Ask Nick Cagle about this?



The tiles removed easily from the wood base.



The wood on the steps was installed before the wooden floor in main part of the Barth. I had to use a vibrating cutter to cut apart the wood on the steps and avoid destroying the living quarters floor. The flooring was dry. I chewed it out by chiseling it to shreds after cutting it away from the floor in the Barth.



After a few hours of chewing out the wood it revealed that Barth did originally attempt to have steps close to the same rise and height.



There will be three new steps in place of two. Each will have a six inch rise and a 7 and 21/64 inch tread. The new electric steps only come in 7 inch rise, but I can deal with the one inch change from outside to inside.

It seems to me...... an additional tread 1/2 the difference in thickness of the objectionable rise could have been added to the lower step and avoided all the destruction, time and labor expended on this project. ...."just saying!"
Stay healthy everyone!!!! Smiler

Since 2020 does not count, I am posting here again, NO fooling. Finished the steps a minute ago.

This led me to another micro project.


I never thought it would be so simple head bang




The


simplest


jigsaw


puzzle


ever.


Laying the


pipe was


a breeze.
Then mapping the pipe, easy as pie

If you understand my foolish project,
to keep warm.








There are a few folks on Barthmobile, that know WTF are the last three days of the week before the weekend or where is the fudge? I don’t speak in riddles because WYSIWYG. If you do not get this it you may not be wise enough to know this is YY4U. Yes I know you have BTDT, or may be to difficult CC. Then eventually we will all RIP. IMHO, we need to spell things out But most think we should we abbreviate everything BC it saves bandwidth.

Oh and by the way this is my last post.





The website has burned up on its reentry to the atmosphere.



































































Keep Scrolling Sorry




































































Hope this made your year. Sleeping

No time to figure out the codes. Thank you for the pictures of your floor heat. I did get all the code speak was an April Fools Joke.

Looks like the tile removal was funnnnn. You didn’t burn the coach up soldering pipes is always a plus. Guess I’m not the only one up late.

No I got them all right just not what you wanted on the last one. All of mine listed for CC were correct. The printed word or acronyms is imprecise at best. Can’t hear inflections and pronunciations. Also intent.

How did you get Photobom to work?
