Rick, tell me how you installed the LEDs. I have been trying to do this for several weeks and only able to connect one to a light for the coach, cannot figure out how to hook up the chassis battery switch.

Mine is in storage. The batteries are home in the warm garage, and the coach is sitting cold and dead in a staroage lot.
Frankly, it's killing me... if. Cash flow was a lil better, i'd be finding a place to park her where I could hookup and dewinterize.
None of this is helped by the simple fact that so far. Winter has forgotten to come to the midwest....

Found the squeek

The squeek sounded like in front then to the side looked for over a year looking every were. I found it to be the windshild molding rubbing on the glass (this made the windshield into a speaker) and the like a surrond sound.

Well, since I brought it home from storage last week, today I emptied all the kitchen cupboards and cleaned the mouse dirt from them. I washed all the cutlery and kitchen towels. then a thorough vacuum of the entire coach. Next job is to pack some summer clothes for the impending Florida trip in three weeks.

You, and everyone really need to try and keep mice out of the RVs. Do ALL you can to keep 'em out !!!
They love to chew on wiring and engine vacuum lines. That could cost you a lot of misery and $$$$$, $$$$, $$$$$.

But I don't really mind, as I make a living doing the repairs.

I've replaced my 30" Sharp TV with a 32" Sony (required trim work to be done by my cabinet maker), had a slide out wine bottle drawer installed under the sink (tired of a box under the dinning table), replaced my audio system with a current model (re-using the existing speakers), upgraded the driving stereo/GPS/CD/iPod system, replaced my dome satellite with a HDTV Motosat system, and then the regular maintenance things that go with a MH, batteries, filters, controllers and stuff. Oh what fun, wouldn't trade it for anything.

I fixed our screen door latch, replaced the rubber grommets on the cook top, fixed co-pilots beverage holder and am trying to find a replacement for our cracked outside faucet!
a bad day camping is still better than a good day working.

Added a 1500/3000 watt inverter with remote switch including auto transfer switch to switch between Genny/Shorepower to the inverter seamlessly. Put 95% of AC outlets on the inverter. Tested it by boondocking at the beach for a week. House batteries kept enough power input for inverter to power such momentary needs as 1850 watt hair dryer, chargers for iPhones, etc. had enough power to run crockpot for 5 hours at 170 watts draw! Installed Costco 58 watt solar panel set with charge controller to recharge house batteries. Oh yeah, had to install Bose 3-2-1 Surround Sound system with subwoofer under slide out couch. Listened to Top Gun as it played on 26" LCD TV. Awesome sound in the coach. DW says I'm crazy. Electrical, stereos, computers I can do. Plumbing I don't touch with a ten foot pole!!

Happy Trails...
