Newbie looking for DIY advice

Hello! Owner of a 2015/2016 (?) ASPEN TRAIL 3600QBDS. We are seasonal campers at a campground and we attached a 4 season sunroom onto our rv. Our campground is no longer accepting any 50amp rvís so if we were to upgrade itíd have to be a 30amp and that just doesnít agree with our lifestyle. So if I canít upgrade Iím DIYing!!! Iím looking for any advice, tips, or tricks that you may have to pass along! Iíve been researching this topic for a couple of years now trying to learn from other RV DIYers about what have worked and what has not and what brands or tools to use, this year is the year that Iím finally going to do it! I would like any advice you are willing to pass along!!! What worked? What didnít work? Brands you used? Tools you used? Painting advice? Furniture or appliances replacement? Door replacement? Flooring advice? I want to rip that carpet out thatís in the bump out and replace it with the same or similar to the existing linoleum flooring, paint the interior with a light color to make the RV brighter but I canít decide whether to sand the walls first or skip sanding and apply a high quality primer with 2 coats of paint, replace the jacknife sofa with a sleeper sofa from ikea, and replace the dinette with a narrower table & chairs. Iím begging anymore who has done any DIY for these things to please pass along your knowledge to me!!! I want to learn from you
