I needed new mirrors after breaking one of the el cheapo's that I've been getting by with over the past few years (the strap on kind that are really cheesy, it actually fell off the camper driving down the road). Bought a pair of these at the local RV dealer and used them for the first time this weekend. Very impressed. Not quite as steady as advertised, but still very good. Great field of view and the mounts will never be an issue.

Thanks for the recommendation.

Jim

Wow, probably one of my favorite touches you've added to date. Those are gorgeous. I hope you don't mind, but I will be looking for something very similar as soon as I finish my reno.

Added drive in speakers today and the cool part is that they are 50’s and stamped on the casting is the name of the local drive inn that we went to.

Finished the electrical today, added outlets to the belly pan, the outlet to the left is for the outside drive in speaker and 12 volt light, also finished running the speaker wires. Everything seems to work inside and outside.

Only a comment on chaffing. Might want to add some cable wrap around all the long runs on the floor just to stop them from rubbing through while driving. I like neat work - that looks great, I like the outlets under the bottom on the bellypan - makes sense.

Installed the galley sink to gray water tank and the system worked great. Went with a waterless trap for space plus it doesn’t need to be winterized. Installed clean out, the clean out has 2 purpose's, one is to clean out and to act as a stop, the pipe is trapped between the plywood from bed to tank. All fixtures will have shut-off valves as seen in the picture, the water system is set up for the line’s to be blown out.
