Should always have a breaker as close to the battery as possible. My batteries are under floor next to door step. Cut off switch is there too in step well. I mounted breakers right there on frame. One circuit goes to 12 volt fuse panel, other goes forward to isolator and dash accessories.

Installed a new refrigerator today. Picked it up at Camping World. Those folks are not too bright. Do your research. Know what you are looking for. Have your part numbers. I replaced the existing Dometic RM3807 with a RM2820. Had a little trouble getting old one out and new one in but it is now up and running. Wow a new refrigerator smell and the door closes without having to use my foot.

The new frig is in and the bathroom plumbing is fixed. Also have a new water heater to be installed next trip. Hopefully I will never have to deal with a plumbing problem again (yah right!). After a busy weekend of MH repairs, it was time to head on home.

I'm looking to replace the lpg leak detector. The original has an on/off switch and controls a relay to turn the gas on and off. Most new ones seem to have a test button but no on and off switch. I need the on and off switch to turn the gas on and off. I only turn the main manual valve off at the tank when I'm not going to use for a long time. What do you suggest?

Rewired power from shore/GenSet to breaker panel. Old switch was rusted and corroded. Installed new shore/GenSet switch and a surge protector. Installed inside instead of in leaky storage bin.

All worked great except I now need to adjust GenSet so it doesn't put out too many volts. Surge protector shuts off power is voltage is over 134.

Also installed two new lights in galley.

Installed new plugs, wires, rotor and cap on 454. It sure runs nice with new carb and tuneup. It was a bit difficult to get old plug wires off spark plugs. Plugs came out very easy...thankful for that. Had to spend a bit of time making sure wires were not touching exhaust etc.

Thanks. It's been a lot of work as we all know! I installed the two lights under the overhead cabinets. There were lights there before. Installed incandescent over stove and a fluorescent over the sink. Got them at Dyersonline.com.

The water heater is an Atwood 6 gal. #96163. It is LP, 120v with electronic starter. This one is same dimensions as the original so it is a direct fit. Old heater still worked but I'm replacing all the major appliances. I use the electric heater a lot and I should have checked that wiring a long time ago. It was pretty dangerous. I got water heater from camping world and I'll bite my tongue on that. Sometimes I see interesting posts on the forum about where one "should" be buying parts, but you know there are a lot of factors in my decision making and sometimes the convenience of getting something immediately out weighs other factors. I just wish camping world understood the concept of customer service!

Only other major appliance is the air conditioner and I'm trying to decide what to get and where to get it.

Dean
