Some upgrades of little things electrical

I put in a new light in the compartment where the plumbing is . I fixed the light where the converter sits. I rebuilt the license plate light, scare light switch, scare light, and porch light. I replaced bulbs in the control panel lights. I cleaned up wires for power, DVD, and sattelite. I made my own gasket for the scare light. Here are a couple of pics

Looks good and like your making solid progress. Where did you get your scare light switch from - did it just snap into the old wall bracket....

Ganglin:

I bought it from Apalachee RV in Auburn Georgia for under $5:00 ( Metro Atlanta). They have a web site. It was almost a perfect fit. I did have to take my dremel and grind down a ridge on each side of the switch. It took about 3 minutes and it is not visible.

Are you the airstreamer who is restoring a royal mansion spartan trailer?

I took a piece of 1" X 6" board and screwed it into the wall. I measured the size of the screws I would need. I measured so I would just pierce the wall after I went through the wood. I put four screws in the wood (each corner). I don't think I hit the refrigerator. If I did I just poked a little hole. I never travel with the TV on the wall hanger.
