What brand is it? We are on our third GE. The first was an electrical problem not the oven's problem. The second spontaneously went on broil while we were moving down the road (generator on) then any time it was plugged in with the power on.

Noticed a water drip from the wet bay. After a lot of digging (the water pump is well hidden) I found the pump was coming apart. The screws had come loose and some had fallen out. I had to pull the pump out to repair it. Funny thing, the pump was still working!

I am in the process of replacing the mid coach CRT television with a new Samsung.

Above the co pilot chair is a cabinet with the weingard switching box. I had Dish tailgater for our trade in MH. The switching box in the new to us MH worked fine for the tailgater tested using an extension cord and had dish signal in front and bedroom tv's. That would have been allot more work to run coax and glad i didn't have to.

Today i undertook putting an 110v outlet in that cabinet. Why Thor didn't my guess would be to save a few pennies. They did at least have the cabinet cutout covered up with material so all i needed for that part was to cut an X in the material. Had to remove the A pillar plastic cover and fish tape down to another 110v supply. Getting to that one zip tie on a bundle of wires to cut proved most challenging. I only sacrificed a little blood to the RV Gods. Final results met my perfectionist personality.

My to do list for our new to us is getting much much smaller.

We had the same problem with a Winnebago class C we had. Cabinet was right over the TV but no 110 outlet. Thought the same thing. How could they not have wired this? Fortunately for us the microwave was right next door and there was an outlet in the cabinet above that.

I replaced the Chassis or Engine batteries earlier this year. Just finished replacing the old 24 inch tube Sony TV with a 32 inch LED flatscreen. After removing the wood trim that was around the old TV the new TV just fit in the cabinet. I had to make and install new trim around it. Old TV was 81 lbs and new one is 11 lbs. Now having to add some new tools to offset the weight loss so the front tires stay on the ground (hehe!!)

I sure would like to see pictures of how the new 32" fit in the box and how it looks after it is all finished. I would like to replace mine one of these days, but have not found a TV that is square, most are rectangular.

My TV replacement is in progress. The pictures are how I am mounting the TV to fit in a larger sized opening. It will be hinged at the top and have locks at the bottom. This will allow me access to the wiring and also I am installing shelves so the space can be used for storage.




The frame shown is for mock up purposes only. I am in the process of building the real one out of Cherry wood which will be stained to matching the existing cabinet.
