Just clean it, it's past the point of ever being shiny again, it is well used.

    I have a fair amount of diamond plate on my jet boat.  I shine it up using a mothers buffing ball and mothers aluminum polish.  It is pretty rough on the buffing ball.  It goes pretty quick but the boat does not get as much abuse as your floor has seen.

          There is a thread here by Backalleyburger that had some very good drawings on a couple of different plumbing set ups. If you do a search you'll find it because he wasn't here long but had some great post.

              The window and awning came put together ready to install. It came from simplicity innovations out of Indiana. I found them on ebay. Its 8x3....its huge. I freaking love it. I paid 1800 for it with shipping included. Its very impressive..good craftsmanship.

                Hey Doc. I couldnt find the plumbing set up but i did find a converter/charger set up you sent him to look at excatly 1 year ago. I ordered a 45 amp converter/charger last week and i am going to do something like it.
                Was the plumbing set up on the same thread as this pic?

                  Be cautious on the 12 volt system, Reese spent a ton of time and money in his efforts and he wasn't happy with the outcome. You might want to shoot him a note about that. He is a good guy and I'm sure will be helpful. On the backalleyburger post question here are some links that may help, I'm pressed for time right now but use google for your search like this Plumbing;roadfood,
                  or plumbing:roadfood .
                  or plumbingpictures:roadfood

                          Smoke,
                          I'm not the jerk I may appear to be I just think that if your willing to do the research you should do on any question and still don't feel really good about the answer then bring up the question and get some input from the rest of the forum.
                           
                          But with the ever smaller numbers of experienced members available here chances are your going to get a half assed answer. If you don't pre-read some or all of the older post on the topic.
                           
                          And I promise you the majority of the rock solid members that were here just a year ago left because they got tired of answering the same questions over and over from every new kid on the block.
                           
                          You'll do fine but please research your question and then if you become confused by what you've read ask away.  Good luck
                          jack
