New Grasscloth wall covering in the Kitchen. To protect it: Plexiglass to the right of the stove and Flat Acrylic Varnish elsewhere.

On my 310 this switch is mounted on a comfort panel and you may have to take the panel off to get to it. The switch itself is held in by two legs top and bottom that's spring out when his pushed completely and because of the plywood backing and the material on the comfort panel it may be difficult to unsnap it. In my case the contacts were burnout because of the amount of current the that goes through the switch, I was able to find another switch and transplant the contacts from the new switch into the old. If I remember right that is a two pole switch and I believe I wired the polls together so that the contacts could share the current and hopefully it won't burn up in the future.
Good Luck
Bill

When I sold my 79, the new owner ask me to remove the entertainment center, which had 3 switches mounted on the side. I had no success removing them and finally just cut a 4x4" section, leaving them in place. Looking at the back, I noticed they were installed with large amounts of some brown adhesive. Not sure if it was standard or just some later fix.

On the subject of the Hi/Lo switch....
Mine is still working, just the action is soft with little detent between positions..
I inserted a small flat screwdriver under the lower edge and levered gently and it popped right out...
There are soft fit plastic tabs top and bottom...
The switch is marked:
UND LAB LIST INC
USA 311
10A 250 VAC
15A 125 VAC
3/4 HP 250 VAC

Pic.


Also found replacement lenses for my melted interior lights...
Look for "Progressive Dynamics Dome light"
They were $3.95 per pair off Ebay.



Slightly different, but its good..

I finally got my new cooling unit only 6 weeks late they told me 6 days. The leak was at the 110 element as you can see in the pics. The ammonia smell when it failed in Maine was so bad had to move out of it for 3 days!

Good info on how to instal http://www.rvmobile.com/Tech/Trouble/3800change.htm

A long time ago someone gave me these brand new zipdee tire covers and I finally could put them to use after replacing the snaps. For some reason the existing snaps were too big and didn't work.

Hi PeterH, I still remember your help when I was on the road many years ago and didn't have lights for night driving.
I haven't been on for a while, but I'm getting the old gal back into shape for a road trip to pick up my son from military boarding school in June 2013. It will be 9-12 hours each way. This MH has been mechanically very sound, but the systems sometimes have vexed me. Here is what I've done to my motorhome recently and in the past:

Added all the smog crap for California!

Replaced 4 barrel carb with new Edelbrock w/electric choke.

Ramco power side view mirrors.

Stereo with two additional speakers at the very front of the Tonneau cabinets behind the front seats.

Replaced central heating motherboard (almost froze to death by Mt. Shasta).

Replaced leaking hose behind toilet.

Replaced old fridge with used one (fits ok but not perfect).

Replaced leaking heater core.

Revamped battery compartment.

I think this thread is excellent in that it consolidates many great ideas in one easy to find blog!
