After some consideration i decided to change all the lights with warmer gels. The result is similar to the colors i have attempted to portray here:

Latest Lighting Under Bed

Having great frustrations not being able to see the storage area under the bed, i wired in a line of LED's (LED4RV.com) which come on when one lifts the bed to access the storage area. Also in the circuit is a SPST switch so I can turn the light off if I have the bed up loading, unloading, or just leaving it in the up position.

Great thread! Thanks for posting all the mods.

After realizing that the 2016 30FC Recliner model we ordered has bins over the dinette (creating a more cramped space feel and eliminating two vista view windows) we have decided to switch our order to a 30 Intl Serenity Recliner - no bins over the dinette and 3 vista view windows, makes for a more open feel and more natural light.

Do you find that the translucent doors on the upper bins visually reveal a little too much of the bin contents? Any thought of making those translucent panels just a little bit less translucent?

Also... the cold white LEDs that Airstream is using is so harsh. Too bad they don't use warm LEDs. Are the LEDs readily replaceable with warm white LEDs? What is the gel mod that you mentioned? Inserting an amber colored gel between the LED and the glass surface of the light?

2015 Serenity Modifications

The gel is, I believe called "bastard " amber, this gives an almost pinkish light, but I like it. Yes the doors overhead...I wish I had Flying Cloud doors. One could do a lot of things to these, mine have the lights a bit more on the yellow side in these compartments, but may end up with bastard amber.

On another thread I described how to remove the lens of the puck lights so as to place the gel, but this is done with a non- serrated steak knife....

One more addition

Here is my first iteration of my window valences. They need a bit of tuning up, but actually do their job quite well, as is.

OK, I am curious as to how you manage to keep the espresso area clean and neat, that is without lots of water close by to clean up. Your unit must be less messy than my old Elektra semiautomatica.

Espresso area clean?

Thanks, and here is what I do.

1) buy lots of paper towels.....
2) before frothing the milk, I test steam slightly into a folded paper towel next to the Gaggia.
3) Once the espressos or cappuccinos have been finished, I wipe up with the paper towel, then sweep all the coffee grounds from the floor, and dry with a cloth.....

Truth...I am looking for a triangular cooking pan to set all the stuff in, or will figure out a way to place more finish on the table. Three coats of polyurethane are working so far, but as things move forward, improvements can be made.

As we all know, the making of a good espresso, cappuccino or other coffee delight is not done without a small amount of coffee grounds finding their way all over....seems true no matter what I do. Love it!

Two threads?

My apologies for apparently having started two threads on the mods to my Serenity.

The other stuff is here, for this interested.

Msmoto,
I believe you did a mod with the electrical outlet near the lounge tv. Did you just replace the receptacle with a double or was there more to the mod? Is there a reason AS decided to make that a single to begin with?
Thanks

Electrical outlet

In the main room I have not yet modified the electrical outlet. In the bedroom, in order to power my computer speakers, which are the external speakers for the bedroom television, I simply cut out the plastic over the area where the prongs of a plug enter the outlet, and the electrical contacts were already in place, wired, and ready to go. No doubt I will do this for the outlet in the main room as I would like to plug my computer in there. But, it may require additional wiring if no ground is available.

@Meeks

You are welcome. If you happen to be in Farmington, for the International, I will be there as well and would be happy to share my experiences.
