Bathroom Remodel

This is being done to a 05 28' Safari with the original desire to install a nature's head toilet, the removal of panels has exposed the desire to just go ahead and do the whole thing. Given the price of new Airstreams, I expected to reuse instead of chunking. So I'm going to track the remodel here.

Starting with the tear out pictures, removing the wood panneling behind the cabinate (this wood panel jutted all the way to the window in the dinet area) where the mirror and cabinate were really worthless and cheap to my surprise, so it was fun removing that!

I'm currently pondering replacing the sink cabinate for different arrangement, but that is still up in the air.

All exposed areas will be painted with MultiCeramics for a white finish.

The one picture showing the cardboard pattern on the wall will be the new cabinate that will cover the entire 4' width of the wall which will gain a bunch of storage area.

I've got to drop the tanks and determine where to reroute the sink and that part may happen over the winter.

Here is an interesting tid bit... See the wire that runs along the drain pipe over thw wheel wells to the wall post? It would be great if that wasn't there... come to discover that that is the furnace control wire.

If that hasn't sank in yet, I'll fill in the blanks. Since shore power comes in on the street side, the A/C is wired from that side. In Airstream's infinite wisdom, they ran the wire across the floor, through the bathroom, up the wall post and to the A/C control board along side the thermostat wires.
You'd think they would run the wire along with the A/C electrical service wires and skip going to china and back.

I'm going to try to fish a wire through the frig area or as direct as I can to eliminate it.

Keep in mind that in general you do not want to run low-voltage wiring in the same bundle as AC power as the AC power can inject signals onto the low-voltage wiring which may cause glitches or odd operations depending on what is traveling over the low-voltage cable.. This is the reason that in the electrical code books it says to always cross low-voltage cable (if needed) at a perpendicular angle to the high (110V) voltage cables -- you never run them next to each other or bundled together is even worse. Just throwing that out there to make sure you're not going to cause any problems..

Paul:

Airstream might be one up on you here - I couldnot determine if you intended to mount the AC controls on the side of the fridge - be aware that any side wall adjacent to the fridge will indicate about 5 degrees higher than a true inside wall - the side walls of the fridge conduct heat from the rear of the fridge that I have not been able to seal after repeated attempts.

Rick, thanks for that. There shouldn't be any problems as that is probably a 12V relay line, but will try to locate away from AC power lines.

Dennis, I'm not moving the thermostat, just the furnace control lines. They are separate from the RJ11 thermostat line.
