if you have not seen the video in post 184 this is after that

ok so after holding this thing up to the roof .. giving its 2 foot wide by 14 feet long .. it dos not look that big why its up there .. but it sure did on the table

in the pics you can all so see the cups i hade to make for the lights to have room

out of the 4 lights 2 of them are 110ac LEDs and 2 are going to be 12vdc LEDs

i all so painted the inside of it black with oil base

latter i well cut the small air holes in it in the places i want it to pull or push hot air ... still thinking on this and have some things in mind ...

i well get them wired up here soon and then move on to making more parts
every thing that needs paint well be done all in one

so when paint days comes i can shoot a lot more then one part


PS i fro got to add when i said top 10 up there it was on the class A tab here and not on all of irv2

Hi Terry;
Looks like you are progressing very well. Would like to add a suggestion if I am not too late.

One thing I really would like is switched outlets on the outside of the coach. I would use the outlets to add add LED light strings on the outside of the coach, perhaps on the awning or under the awning, in the trees beside the coach, also an outlet would be great for the induction burners we like to use.

IMO you cannot have too many light circuits in the interior. I put dimmable LED lights in the 5er when I replaced the roof sheeting and EPDM. I have a circuit over the stove and counter top, one in the lounge area and one over the eating area. By switching them on or off or dimming them we set different light levels to suit our moods.

Added a LED string in the closet that has a switch. We were constantly complaining about the lack of light when looking for that special shirt or pair of shoes.

Added a reading light on each side of the bed was a bonus. We like to read in bed but not necessarily at the same time. Each on a separate switch of course.

It has been great following the thread. I save it for last every time I get notification of a new post.

so i tested the lighting the other day
i need to get one more 12vdc around 6000K LED light and one is deem but as you can see its a good start

i know have to get a relay box and a min Arduino to run the system
with this i can program the Arduino to see a ground input and run as

push the button __ time
1 all lights on
2 all 110ac lights only
3 all 12vdc lights only
4 all off

or i can run a 2ed wire for all off

there well be 3 buttons to run the lights
1 at drive set
1 at door way
1 at frig hallway

so the lights can be turn on and off

when i add key-less remote it well all so make all lights come on

so did i say the dash would be fast and a piece of cake ..

like righter s block .. its just dont coming to me .. guess to much on my mind and alot of things going on .... so its going very slow

so over 4 or 5 days this is where i am on the dash

but its like playing chess ... so much has to fit under and around it that the size as to be just right .... is it right .... ask me letter i guess

but i guess thats the fun of making things out of the blue


PS the wood dash you see is just a plug for making a mold
the dash to cut down on wight is going to be a one peace fiberglass part again

i do not want to run with the stock c7500 setup over just the cost

would be around 1500$ to order the past

this unit here was on ebay but the guy did not have any info

so if any one knows where i can find one ... i really need it

Impressive project, Impressive story, Impressive life. We all have our struggles. Sometimes we need to overlook the struggles and look at the accomplishments. Terry, given the passion and skill evident in this post. I envy you, even with your mental struggles. We all have them. We all need to understand that we cannot isolate and step away from good people. Keep up the good work and hopefully we will see you on the road someday.
