Nice looking coach. Those mid-90's Crown Royal's are nice coaches.

I don't see very many rigs that are an exact color and model match, as ours. Hope you enjoy your rig as much as we do ours!

Have you made any changes in it.

I have done a several things, I removed all the tile and replaced it with a tile look alike materiel that is much warmer in the winter and glass doesn't break so readily when accidently dropped.
Also change out all the flourcent light bulb for leds -- we really like the instant on and when boon docking uses so much less power/.

We have purchased through Amazon the string of LED 12 volt lights and are in the process of changing out all of our fluorescent bulbs. These LEDs are very simple to work with with an adhesive back just cut to length put in cap on with wires and hooked directly to 12 volt we just disconnect the ballast use the same light fixture and switches very simple. Next project is to run light strip under awning maybe some under cabinets and on Bay doors. My wife is doing all the work and she's scared to death of electricity been zapped couple of times we have also swapped out old TVs for flat screens I will have to try and post some pictures but we love or Sig
Take care happy trails and God bless

Led conversion

I also purchased a 16 foot rolls of leds directly from china at an amazon site. 16 dollars a roll.

I was aware that high kelvin rated led look bluish 4000 degrees kelvin, so I studied sites and found that I could get a very natural looking light that I think are abut 3000 degrees kelvin. so a incandescent bulb will be about 2700 these are just enough whiter to have a very natural looking light.

I drilled out the rivets holding in the old ballast and then the sockets old wire and the ballast were removed from the fixture. I cleaned the fixture with some rubbing alcohol and then the self sticking strip after being cut to a length to fit the fixture were stuck on. I used the original switch and cable tied a white wire to the fixture to provide a placed to connect the neutral wire to and the hot wire to the switch. That way I could use very light wire to solder to the led strip-- be careful here as the run on the strip is fragile. I used a 15 watt soldering pencil and #28 wire.
So once you get into a routine it goes well. I changed out all my lights in the coach and liked that so well that I did the lights in the storage areas below as well.

Then I went back to amazon and found lights for the fixtures that have socketed incandescent light bulb and ordered led replacements for those as well. I found that this cuts way down on my battery usage when boon docking which we like to do.
Hope this helps
Loren

Yeah these things are awesome won't be long till everybody finds out the price goes through the roof when we done ours we did not remove the ballast we just cut the wires coming out of the switch and wired it to original switch it's fun to upgrade when you don't have to get dirty and spend a lot of money take care God bless
