A seperate wire has to be run from the TV to the refer for this system to work. I haven't decided if I am going to use this feature or not. This could be what the extra wire is for.

Looking over the wiring diagrams on all there models, I think that the blue wire is what they call a "test point", will call Dometic tomorrow.

65 Caravel, not even a small scratch, very lucky.

I have received a few questions on how I'm going to do my screens on the Safari, I was going to cover this later but I will do it know. The screen in the picture's is my prototype just to see if it will work, I bought the frame from Home Depot along with the screen material, the 90 deg bracket's come with the frame, very easy to make up. ( I used my power miter to cut that perfect 45 deg angle) The first thing that I will do is to install new trim around all window's, then cut my screen frames for the perfect fit to each window. When making up the screen you will notice that I cut the screen to fit the window openers, I will place a little piece of aluminum with slot so that the screen will not tear. Open the window opener, slide the screen onto the window openers and slide into position, the screen frame will set againt the new window trim, should make a clean design. will apply some small clips. Hope the pictures help.

Thanks Toastie.

That really looks like a much better way to do it than the original.

cheers,

Thumbs up

I like that as an easier replaceable solution. What are the dimensions of the screen frame? 1/4 in thick? They look 1 in wide rather than 3/4. I'll plan on something similar with mine. Ed

toastie-- this is a very good way to update those screens. Those Hehr windows look great, but they have their quirks.

I'm really looking forward to seeing you make more progress on your project as winter passes, your work is truly inspiring.

Thanks,
-Marcus

Thanks Marcus, it's been a very bad winter, and a very bad economy here in Michigan, a 12% unemployment rate and its going to go even higher. We won't even talk about the Detroit Lions 0-16 season.
