Dave,

Thanks for you many years of service to the country!

I really like the driver and passenger side panels.

Dean

Spending the day and night at a local RV park 10 miles from our house. I cant run the air conditioners at home due to the angle if the driveway. So we decided to bring it down here a few times a month. That way I can do projects in the A/C. The fact that Home Depot is 2 minutes away is awesome. I save more money in gas running back and forth to get stuff the the site costs! Another important reason is we are running the mechanicals to keep the working. Nothing worse for diesel is to sit to long!

Here is an example of why we think it is so important to take your time and use the MoHo. We have our brown paper flooring down..... We often draw on it To mRk where things are gonna go and it is great to show where you have small leaks since the paper is stained even if the water drys before you get back to it.

So, this brings me to the shower door. As you can see in the pic below, when you open the door water runs of the edge. I put a bath mat in a tray to lesson the water from me when I get out

So the only way I can think if to lesson the water that will make its way to the wood sub floor is to put down a membrane and those corrugated shower tiles. And put a small drain hole at both ends to drain the water out the bottom of the coach.

Thoughts or suggestions of products or stuff to use. The current pan normally lives under the dogs water bowls 😜

Had a 12v fuse blow last night that went to the reading lights in the lounge area. Replaced and immediately blew while inserting. Knew this meant a ground vice overload since 20amp should handle the dew reading lights. Turned off all lights and realized ones in bedroom and aft radio were dead as well. Turned them off, replaced fuse and re-energized one by one. Original bedroom track lighting was culprit. Took it all down this morning and low and behold the wire had chaffed through where airstream put it through the metal housing with out a grommet or protection.

High paid technicians at AS put a channel on the door to catch the inside run down only problem is they mounted it with the wrong end up
pealed it up and remounted with the low end at the hinge end and it solved the dripping on the floor

Spending the night at a local campground again. This weekends project was to covert lighting to LED and mount reading lights in bedroom. talked to Dan at Led4rv and he set me up with every thing I needed. Led strips to do 8 fluorescent lights, led builds for the 6 fish eye reading lights and 2 new led reading lights for the back bedroom. I can't believe the difference the LEDs make. Much nicer & brighter now. Also got one of the led running lights to test out. May do that when the weather gets cooler. Here is the new light that replaced the ugly gold 70's track lighting. It is pointing down since it was to bright for my iPad to get a photo of.

Very nice, I'm a big fan of the LED lights and not just for energy saving.

Thanks! I am a fan because of the long life and low power user. With the fluorescents my converter was running all the time, now all I have is quiet! Not to mention the safety aspect of the cooler LEDs.

I just replaced all ten of my running lights with LED's. The old ones were corroded and intermittent. The difficult ones to replace are the rear 3 center ones, since they are mounted directly to the skin. Many LED's running lights have a flush mount to the skin with only 1/4" recess where the wire comes out. This will not match the entry point of your wires.
Unless your rig already uses the #13 housing for those three, you will have to find LED's that have sufficient space on the back to route your wire or else you will experience a short sooner or later.
The other 7 are mounted to a housing which allows plenty of room to reroute the wires.
They do sell the #13 housing that would eliminate that problem

This is why I love this forum!!! A solution to a problem I didn't yet know I had. Just went out and checked.... Looks like I am gonna pick up 3 of the #13 housings.

Thanks Peter!!!

Maybe Dan at Led4rv can help. I would think he is aware of the issue.
