Called her.
She and I drooled over this for an hour. Karen and her husband go gold prospecting and gem hunting and she says this is too beautiful to wreck on the gold claims. She wants a Casita - which actually makes sense for the places they go and the things they do. When she gets one and visits us at a forum rally we promise to gift wrap it in aluminum foil to fit in.

Zep, I just LOVE your cabinet work. You've really squeezed a lot more use out of every inch of space than I could have imagined. The dish drawer is brilliant. I wish I had your skills.

Doing a short Airstream is more difficult because you really don't want to waste a single cubic inch. What you don't see in the photos is the 9-bottle wine rack under the other end of the bench seat. You also don't see the storage shelf that's behind and above the dishes--uses that little triangle of space that the rotating dish drawer can't. The shelf is big enough for a few bottles of propane and one of those round catalytic heaters.

My skills are a lot of trial and error. For example, the joint at the end of the over-kitchen cabinet is something I'd like to replicate in the Overlander, so I went out and took a look at the joint. It's been three weeks and I still can't figure out how I made it...

I think the tilt-out idea for the dishes is the best. I have two other dish drawers on drawer glides. They do fine, even though they are heavy, unless they get loose while traveling, then it's a potential disaster. I've had it happen twice, with no broken dishes, but the rollers on the glides get bent interesting ways and it's a real heart attack when you open the door and see the drawer on the floor... bungees--hate 'em but use 'em. One of these days I will figure out an elegant drawer restraint system.

With the exception of the brake wire, all wires run in the ceiling, along each side of the center strip of skin (mostly 115V wirs on one side, 12V on the other). The wires from the 7-pin umbilical connector usually run up the front wall on the curb side of the windows.

I'd start right at the 7-pin connector. Make sure the marker lights wire is snug under the screw on the connector. Failing that, it's a real problem, since the marker lights wire is a daisy chain. In a Caravel, with no side markers, I think there's only two branches--one up front and then a branch going back to the back.

Taking the ceiling down won't necessarily solve your problem, since the branch connections for the marker lights are actually under the domes, not in the ceiling channel. You can get to the front connection by taking out the eyebrow shelf. The marker light wires are accessible behind that shelf. If all your marker lights are not working, I'd bet that that is where the disconnect is, if it isn't at the 7-pin itself.
