Replaced all the plugs and put the new ones in junction boxes

Re-wired and replaced all my plugs today. Got rid of the CRAP RV style plugs and put them all in a proper junction box. Now all my plugs are Commercial Grade TR plugs in a Carlon PVC wall boxes.
The pop in boxes have Tabs that hold them in place but I added pop riveted to pull inside skin tight against the junction box so the plug cover is tight in place.
I’m glad to have this one done. Those connections in the factory plugs are real sketchy.

Victron BMV 702 with Bluetooth dongle install

Posted 12-16-2018 at 07:57 PM by GMFL
Updated 12-20-2018 at 05:30 PM by GMFL

Installed a new Victron BMV battery monitor with shunt and Bluetooth dongle.
This is a fairly easy install. Biggest thing you have to do is make sure that all the (-) negative battery leads are on the load side of the monitor shunt. This is best done by running a wire straight from the (-) negative battery post to the shunt and then a wire from the load side of the shunt to a distribution bus bar where all the other (-) negative leads will attach.
Once that is done and you have found...

Rear HDMI, Rear Plug to Inverter, Microwave support

Posted 12-01-2018 at 07:51 AM by GMFL
Updated 12-01-2018 at 09:46 AM by GMFL

Ok I’m going to tackle a BIG one here.
Running a dedicated HDMI cable to the Rear 22” TV, Running a new power wire to the Rear TV plug that will allow it to run off the inverter, Cutting in a New plug in the street side closet to power an HDMI Splitter, replacing the cheap RV style plugs with new plugs and boxes (TV front, TV rear, New Closet plug, and Microwave). Also while at it I added front support blocks for the Microwave and added T-nuts to hold it all in place.
Previously we...

15K AC upgrade and proper AC drip cup install done

Posted 11-30-2018 at 06:04 PM by GMFL
Updated 11-30-2018 at 06:15 PM by GMFL

That past summer we had enough! Our factory 13.5K AC was just not up to the task of keeping our 23D cool in the hot Florida beach summers. We like to go to the beach at least 4 weeks in the summer and if we happened to get a site at our favorite beach park (Camp Gulf DESTIN) that was not shaded we were T-O-A-S-T.
Our 13.5K unit would keep the inside of our unit nice in. The morning and at night, but mid day it would struggle to keep the inside temp in the 80s.
Soooooooo we upgraded...

Remounting 23D medicine cabinet to prevent falling

Posted 11-30-2018 at 04:54 PM by GMFL
Updated 11-30-2018 at 07:12 PM by GMFL

A common problem either the medicine cabinets in Airstream trailers is they are mounted to the aluminum wall with small #8 screws. The vibration and bouncing of the trailer as it travels down the road can cause over time these screws to strip out or pull through the wall or backing. If the medicine cabinet falls off the wall while traveling it can cause damage to the flooring, counter top, lower cabinet, and mirror. A solution to this potentially catastrophic problem is to “harden up the way the...
