Had to shut down the bidding on the vacuum hose and attachments, it was getting out of hand. . I did get curious though and pulled the metal canister out from its hole in the bottom of the vanity. The motor sits in there towards the back and I couldnt get to the mounting screws without removing the floor of the vanity cabinet so she shall live there. I did however use the feed to the motor to add a new 120v outlet in the hallway where the the vacuum hose inlet plug was located. So that will be a handy spot to plug in.........THE VACUUM of course.
I cleaned up the metal canister and reinstalled, we will find something to store or stash in there.

Can one of you tell me what activates the small courtesy light on the side of the step well. Mine has never worked. Yesterday I found the socket had come loose from its hole and was hanging next to the steps. I put a new bulb in it but couldnt get it to light. I thought it might be tied to the switch in the door jamb. I want to see if I can get it working correctly but Im not sure what "working correctly" is. Need to know what switches it on.

Thank you, Mike

Ordered this little hand held label maker. My wife uses one at work and showed me the labels it makes. Pretty cool. Adhesive backed vinyl label tape with easy to read letters. Will start labeling wires as I go especially behind the dash. Pretty cheap too.

I have one too...but amazingly each time I go to use it, it is out of tape; a bit like how the printer is always out of paper and ink, when it certainly wasn't when I last used it!

Just finishing up replacing all my "trunk" lights with these little LED light bars. Needed two in the long compartment on the street side. They seem like nice little lights. I also added two underneath on either side of the stairs. They give off just enough light to see the stairs without the disco lights you see sometimes. My intent is to have just a little light at night without using the scare light or the one over the door. (Step light?)

Not a bad looking light. I'd buy a couple now but instead I've added it to my wish list. I don't want to order any lights for compartments until I get closer to having the compartments reworked.

Thanks for sharing

Brad

It will be nice having those all working correctly. Especially during this time of year when its dark so early. Im sure we will be occasionally setting up after dark when on the road.

I didn't know you were allowed to arrive at a camp ground before night fall!

We got out for the weekend to Raccoon Lake State Recreation Area in south central Indiana. Beautiful time of year to camp, very few folks in the campground.

This part of Indiana is just gorgeous and has many state parks to choose from. Highly recommend for anyone passing through this part of the country. (We DO have more than corn and soy beans). Raccoon Lake is a nesting area for eagles and youre pretty much guaranteed to see a few while there.

Low temps were in the 30's over night. 2 small electric heaters were plenty to keep the rig toasty. Since I had run an extra 120v shore power cord for the rear ac, we can also use that circuit to power the second electric heater leaving plenty of shore power for the rest of the coaches electrical needs.
Campsites were beautiful tucked up into the woods

The 310 ran great, no hiccups, all systems go. Load food and clothes, do the preflight and take off. Getting ready for our trip west to Colorado in about a month.
