I need to get some gas detectors installed while everything is out. Any suggestions on which ones to get?

these seem to work pretty good and do not need batteries.

Our original gas detector, located just inside the door to the left, is a "NewTec"...don't know if they're still in business, but it still works. At home, we use a Nighthawk(made by KIDDE Safety), which is a dual CO/Explosive gas detector...it has a 9V DC battery back-up, but plugs into a 120 AC.

Is there a switch or something to run on the coach batteries? When I plug in to the wall, everything works. When I unplug, it doesn't . Not sure how to go to the batteries.

Overhead wood storage

My PO put these cabinets in, I believe, and they are quite handy and blend well. It is possible they are original to the coach, but I don't think so as they are different from the rear. Anyone know if these could have come with the motorhome in 1982? The bedroom storage has the standard tambour type. The area over the cockpit really is nice, it makes use of otherwise wasted space and could solve your headliner issue at least in part. It also hides a lot of extra wiring for speakers and such. The PO also made the dashboard to match the wood cabinets. Sorry the pictures are not ideal, but if you are looking for ideas and want better pictures, just let me know.

The oak overhead cabinets were an option...we have them in ours...the closets, bathroom, and over-the-fridge are also oak.

Running 120 V AC requires a landline or an inverter...you would need extra coach batteries to make this viable...solar panels are a BIG plus, and can recharge your batteries during the day.

Yea, I know for the 120v I've got to have the onan running or be plugged in. How do I get the 12v lights & such to work off the two 6v batts wired in series located in the same compartment as the engine batt?

They should work...the drawback to 6V batteries, is if one fails(or is failing), the system goes down...you might consider 12V AGMs...?
