are you sure?

Are you sure you uploaded them? If they're too big, they might not have gone through. The warning sentence is easy to miss sometimes. Try again; we're eager to see your pictures (and your new towel hooks)!

Hi Joquin, Is the hole above the access door to the battery compartment ? If so it was/is intended to act as a vent for the battery gasses. I have the same set up in my Caravel.

What size is the extra wire ? does it look like a 110 v wire or is it smaller ?
I did have an extra 110v line in my Caravel. It wasn't hooked to anything but, it ran up into the roof. I know it wasn't for the a/c because I had a/c on there that used another separate wire.

Pics would be helpful here.

Let us know when you get some pics posted !

Interesting I had an extra 110 wire folded up inside the rear wall- maybe it was for the optional bathroon vent/fan (which I don't have).

Pics... we want to see 'em!

Try Try Try again, I had some fun with pictures at first. We like pictures. Check your size.

The above reply about the vent hole for the battery is correct - I have seen them on alot of the Caravel's I've looked at. The extra 110 wire going to the roof is in mine also, I believe it's for the 110V vent fan. Mine exits the trim at the roof vent and loops back into the skin. It's not hot when I plug into city power.

What does the message say after you click the button "upload"? With a dial up connection, you may need to wait a bit longer for the upload to happen but it will need to finish before you close the upload window.
