Help with upgrades/ updates
I purchased a 2002.5 Gulfstream Friendship earler this year and my wife and i love it. We are new to rv's but not to camping. I am a mechanic/electronics tech. by trade and i want to do some upgrades to my unit.
I have already bought most of the main parts to do the up grades with but having not done this type of work to an rv i could use some advise as to the best way to do these. Like how to fish the new cables, how to water proof, how best to cover up and seal where the old unit that is being replaced, how to patch the ceiling inside the rv after the old manual satellite and manual tv antenna have been removed.
Now having said all that, the next thing i plan on doing is a great deal of up dates/ mods to the unit. like 3 new fantastic fans, a new auto tracking satellite dish, two new 32" 3d flatscreeen tvs. , a new digital hd local tv antenna, new hd color 3 camera and monitor system and a new Stryker spot light system. To replace the old original one which i tore off with a low power line the 3rd week i had it. Yes yes i know ive gone overboard and i could have spent the money on a newer rv but then i would have still probably not had all the extras i wanted and then i wouldnt have had the money to do it with. So you do what you got to do or at least what you think you have to do.
And hopefully you end up with something that is distinctly yours something we can be proud of knowing you had a hand in making it special just for your enjoyment.
So if you have any advice on how to, or not to, install these items that would be great. But try to keep it up beat please, so far i am really enjoying myself and i would like to keep it that way as long as possiable.
Thanks in advance for you help.
