Here's the template that'll be used.

Hopefully soon I can make a legitimate posting to 'What did you get for your motorhome today'
Andy, I was just about to email you the location of the NuTone, and now I have a great photo to go by instead! That's some great looking wood edge trim there. Are you going to try and use that? Not sure that it would work with granite though......
Thanks, Derek

I like the black tape. I wonder how many of us have tape on our dashes?

Yes, from time to time when I know it's the sender or the gauge.

Yes, black tape...
I know the washer fluid reservour is toast, so one of the lights is for that, the coolant level is another... but why is the "Water in fuel" Lamp on? I thought they only had that option on the Diesels!
I am gonna try to fix it, and if no good, will pull the bulb out.. a more "Elegent" solution...

Water in Fuel gauge was one for diesels, but when yer building so many dashes, it's cheaper to just put the gauge in ALL dashes(contrary to our cherished belief, they actually DID make more school buses than Airstream mohos...!!!???). My gauge tells me it's got water even when the tank is dry...I also get the low coolant gauge warning on an intermittent basis, but have learned to ignore it if the temp gauge is ok...so many gauges, so little knowledge...mine is a heavy burden to bare...uhm...bear...now if I could only gauge the ensuing responses...

Ok... more LED experiments for Keyair's Lab...

The thing on the right is a 1156 to G4 bulb adapter... the LED panel on the left is a 24 element G4 Warm White bulb...


This is how they go...


Lit..

15W Solar Panel

Found a good deal on this from Home Depot. Been wanting a solar panel and didn't spend too many $ on it, like it best because I can add more if I want too.

Steve, looking like both your speedo and tach have been replaced. Sure are a lot easier to read than what I have. mmmmm, maybe a replacement is due.....
Thanks, Derek
