This is how they look off and on.

They don't show real well in the picture but don't look bad in person. I went out after dark and they show light on the trees 150 feet away.

Not a real difficult job but the wires are veerrrry small. Hard to strip the insulation without breaking the wire.
Dan,

Where did you go to attach wiring for the Daytime Running Lights?
Thanks, Derek

Ok,
You just can't leave us not knowing where you bought the manual air lift pedastal. Does it lower the dinette table so that if needed, you can make a bed out of dinette?

As well, did you install new flooring? Maybe a part number for the Koni's?
Thanks, Derek

Man you must be having a rough night or a very early morning, isn't it about 3 am in Florida? To answer your question I just picked a hot wire under the dash that is controlled by the ignition switch, on with ignition on and off when ignition is off. That way I don't have to worry about turning them on or forgetting to turn them off. I wasn't worried about overloading anything because they draw almost nothing. Used a 1/2 amp fuse because it was the lowest amp fuse I had.

Ok, the air lift pedestal is made by Springfield, and is called a three stage pedestal $277 shipped from an internet store called cascade depot, but I have seen them on eBay. Yes, it drops down and turns into a bed- I'll take a photo. The corian table is heavy, so you need to lift up a bit, but rather cool. The Lonseal flooring came from a local boat store who gave me wholesale pricing...stuff aint cheap!. I made a template out of paper, cut it out and installed it. The FSD's came from LTB Autosports on line at $655 for a full set.

That's cool. We frequently refer to our Interstate as The Space Shuttle. And we often say things like, "What would an astronaut do?" Or, "I'm trying to stay as calm as an astronaut" and other things like that, when we get stressed on a trip!

New Digital/Analog capable roof antenna

Each and every time I'm up on the roof, I keep looking at that old tv antenna. Haven't even had a tv inside of the AS yet, but I really don't like the appearance.

Found this on pplmotorhomes.com, much better price than my usual Amazon and eBay finds. Who knew?

Installation this weekend, heading to see Raveson and his new Motorhome purchase tomorrow!

Thanks, Derek

Hi Jonathan, the weather is getting pretty nice. We had about the wettest March ever but hopefully that is all over.


As for the garage I bought it used from a guy locally. His dad sold his coach and no longer needed it. I have the ends for it also but didn't feel the need to put them up. I'm back in the trees so it's pretty well shielded from the wind and direct sun. There is no tag on the cover, there may be on one of the end pieces but they are folded up back in the storage shed and I have never unfolded them so I don't know who made it.

Some parts stocking dealers have those vents and motors.
