Wow, what an honor! (I think) Thank you 007! I'll have the Drainmaster Electric Gate Valves (with gray dump plumbing converted to 3 inch) and accoutrements done soon for you.

Before he threw out the Clarion...he led us thru the update process...

New 2017 Ventana - NAV (Clarion NX 405) System is NOT up to date

Id you still have the old Clarion...this is a great tutorial. I wouldn't have even known where to start... i'll have to go thru that thread from time to time as more highways are added. At least before my next epic journey.

Kudos Neal! I think Summit Stainless, and Drainmaster should make the list.

Maybe someday...Newmar will dedicate a service bay to doing Neal's upgrades to other coaches...

That bay is currently reserved for NealC's emergency visits, it has a hospital privacy curtain around it. Hope to free it up soon, so far so good for 2019 but I have two more holes to drill, so stand by!

The weather finally cleared up and my motivation somewhat returned for "that last 10%" so I'm heading up to the RV in storage and I'm not leaving until it's done!

Full day at the coach, electrical is complete. Need one more day to finish this up. C.Martin earned his coach pay as we had to figure out the momentary switches with sanicon and I had to figure out the relay (thanks C.Martin and Stuart) as I completely bypassed the sanicon switch to use my momentary switches like the water pump in the Ventanas.

After seeing that photo, Lady Di observed "Neal needs a social life."
