AC as in A/C or 120 volt?
The Breakers are under the sink as part of the energenics. There are breakers and a switch over relay as well.
The A/C switch over is under the forward bench set and a single throw dual pole switch is above the sink.

Thanks, I was thinking 120v. Now I remember where the main switchover relay is...it's part of the Energenius.

If you pull out the energenius. The switch over is on the top back part. Take the time to cut out the other crap besides the circuit breakers and switch and replace with a 3 stage charger. If left the way they are they are a fire hazard. 3 dog night had a fire in his. When I pulled mine to check I had signs over over heating as well. There are details earlier in this thread.

forward progress

Well spent some quality time the last two week-ends working on the moho. Got everything set up to start making the new beds. Decided to leave out the old aft most bulkhead and just box in the spare tire well. The walls were sprayed silver where the mouse fur used to be aft. Built the box for the spare tire carrier.

Then built the side bed panels out of 2X2's. Used biscuits and screws. Don't know why the pics aren't orienting correctly. To tired, sore and in need of another Malbec to care right now .

Covered the framing with 3/16 birch plywood. Contact cement and brads around the edges that will be covered by 1/4 molding. They are just propped up at a 34" bed width which would give me a 32" mattress width for 80" length so a narrow twin XL.

Plan on staining it "gun stock" by min-wax then a couple of coats of spar varnish. Hopefully the wx is nice next week-end so I can stain and coat. Then on to the attaching the aluminum angle on the walls. Plan on using 1/2" pine plywood with cross members for the mattress.

Very nice! That aluminum tent is looking great! Yes more Malbec please!

Made some more progress this week-end. Finally doing things that I can see! With all the wiring, piping and stuff that know one will ever see done, finally able to put the living area back together.

Stained the wood last week-end and put 3 coats of spar varnish on it.

Assembled the passenger side framing. Hopefully this week I can make the supports (1/2" plywood running perpendicular) for the drivers side. Then assemble that next week-end. Maybe even get the plywood cut for the top.

Then I can make my final measurements and order the mattresses. I decided on 30X80. I was going to try and eek out 32X80 but the width of the panels sticking into the isle didn't look good..... I know comfort is more important.

Then I can put the corner molding and 1/4 round on it to neaten it all up.

The DW had the quote of the day. I asked her if she liked it so far. and she said yes. I told her that's good since I was worried about that. She then looks t me with a strait face and said.: "I love it, but even if I didn't I am not hard to please...." Really?? Wish you would have said something before we started cause this reno would have stopped when we brought it home 2 years ago!

Another week-end of work on the bedroom. Started off in a bit of a panic. It rained on Friday night. and Saturday when I went to move the moho up the driveway away from the garage (work areas) I noted some kind of oil on the cement.

Fricken great.... The oils was maybe an oz or two, but due to the rain had spread it a but, giving it a very bad first impression. So I climbed under the rig to see what was up. I noted the oil was coming from the bottom of the flywheel housing. Well, I actually noted it was coming from the big metal thing between the oil pan and the transmission, I later learned it was the flywheel housing.

There was a threaded opening at the bottom that appeared to be missing a plug..... So how long has that been gone... Well a few tense minutes later I called BKahler, airstream and mechanical guru. I calmly explained to the non mechanical me that there is not supposed to be a plug in there and the fluid I saw was probably transmission fluid that is leaking past the seals on the angle I have it parked in the driveway... Well, that's a relief! There is no part number for the threaded opening from cummins, however, I have found that some of the cummins that came with the dodges in the early 90's had a plastic dust cover that pooped in there.

So on with the work. Finally completed most of the passenger side bed. Till have to build the book shelves in the back corner, but it can now sleep 1!!! Final mattress dimensions came out to 30X80. I could go to 31 but to get it to 32, I would have to encroach into the passageway. I was going to do that, but my DW pointed out that all thought the extra inches would be nice (typical woman) however we would end up stubbing our toes nightly on the corners of the bed sticking into the isle. I think she made a very valid argument. Also I tried the passenger side and it seem wide enough.

I beefed the structure up more then needed but I realize I will most likely beef up as well.

90% done with bedroom....

Been a few weeks since I posted last. Worked all last week-end and this week-end. All that is left in the bedroom is to put down the floor. Figure out what to do with the wires that used to go to the florescent lights that were hidden behind the shade coverings. And shorten one of the old side drapes to cover the sides of the new side blinds.

First off, Felicia wanted me to post this pic. She thinks I am to anal retentive. I don't disagree, but made perfect sense to put the diagram for the water valve system on the inside of the bed frame were they are located. No more looking for that piece of paper I had everything written down on!

Got the new mattresses in last week and finished up the side rails and trim today. We think it is definitely an improvement. We were going for the yacht look. I think we did pretty well considering our lack of skills and wine consumption! Also installed new Ocenair shades (OEM on new air streams).

We are really happy with how it came out. Much more stylish then what was there before and so much more functional! There was barely 9" on either side of the bed to get around. At least now we can change there and I wont wake the DW up when I get up at O-dark-30.....

Putting a permanent diagram next to the hardware in NOT being anal. It's sound engineering practice.

It's also a good idea to make copies of the important parts of appliance manuals and store them next to the appliance.

A Brother label maker or other that does laminated labels is super for making wires and cables for electrical and entertainment cables.

Tell DW it's just being highly organized 😄😄.

Sigh. Main thought was that you did a superb job on the bed. It looks like stuff I have personally seen in high priced yachts. My dad was in that business.
