I have the almost the same coach, a late-built 96 Endeavor 37', and a ton of questions. Don't mean to hijack the thread but I'd love to see interior pics of your new reefer and flat screens. Also, did you have to add house batteries to handle the residential fridge and where did you put the inverter. All things I'm struggling with engineering right now.

Anywho, hears my old beast, 89,000 miles young and still going strong.

Hi! .... nice looking '96!

I did not add bats or inverter for reefer (but my boondocking is almost non-existent and the genset handles the reefer at 4 hour intervals). If I do more boondocking I'll probably add a standalone 1000w PSW and maybe 1 more battery.

Here's some links to my projects. Things have changed as time has elapsed and most stuff is a little different.

Trash the sofa ... extend the slide floor

Replace Dometic with Summit FF1152SS

Here's a recent pic of the reefer. I don't have a pic of the flatscreens but maybe later this week when I'm at the RV. If you want any details or pics of anything send me a PM and I can upload any big pics to PhotoBucket.

Here some pics of the 98 Pace Arrow we purchased last August. Really was in pretty good shape (except for tires). After we purchased it a few problems occurred, rear jacks started leaking (replaced the seals) and then the hoses started leaking. Believe it or not the jack problems happened after we purchased it (go figure). Looking forward to being able to get it out this spring (soon). Just perfect for the co-pilot and her Boston.

Thanks for the kind words on the '96 and thanks for the links. Very nice work! I've always fancied myself a pretty clever craftsman but I think I might have just met my match

I actually went down to check on the beast just this afternoon, needed to run the genny and see how she faired the winter. And while I was sitting there on my original flower-print J-couch (which after looking at your "trash-the-sofa" pics I now hate BTW, thanks for that ), I couldn't envision how I'd ever find room for a res fridge, but obviously the room's there.

Can't wait to see the flat screen pics. From the flooring job link it looked like you had already removed the big EYE from the center console but I couldn't see where you put the new TV.

cheers...

Well ... the 32" flatscreen is now on an adjustable arm located on the end cabinet opposite the door. Here's the arm ... TV is stored for travel.
You'll need to use your imagination until I get an actual picture. We normally sit in the passenger/co-pilot chair (swiveled) and the recliner that is behind it. Viewing distance and angle is near perfect for a 32" TV. The TV can be rotated and viewed from the dining table. TV swings the other way and almost flat while cooking.

Old TV location is now map, binocular, sunglasses storage and the radio/cd player.

I guess we are as old as the thread permits !!! We love this old Bounder. Has about 48K on it. We chose to remove the king size bed and installed two twins in it to allow for more comfort for us. We are planning on installing Allure flooring in the bedroom, bath and living area this spring. Like everyone else we removed the old TV and installed a flat screen. We put it on a swivel mount so we could move it in a direction that best suits us.

Really enjoy this forum. We get so much useful information here. Still ugly cold in VT but we can hardly wait for some good camping weather.

Boy, looking at your coach sure brings back memories. We had a 94 32H and boy did we have some great times with it. Enjoy.

Our rig is on a 94 F53 chassis with a 460. How often do you folks with the same change your oil?

This is our Moho. No slide but quite a spacious upgrade from our truck camper. We enjoy it very much.
