Yup, I see it now! I was hoping it would be a firmware change to allow 2 speed fan. I have one on my workbench waiting for the switch install. Thanks

There is not much extra space in the Honeywell housing and I used the smallest single pole, double throw switch I could find. Something close to this one.

I replaced fisher99's thermostat with another Honeywell that has larger, backlit characters. On the new one I did not add a fan switch since we have never needed to use the A/C fan on "high" speed. But I might have to now since fisher99 has one!

ORV 24RKS Trash Can

Others have commented on the lack of a place to store a garbage can in a 24RKS. Here's one easy solution. I removed the shelf from the narrow cabinet to the left of the sink. Then I installed a roll-out 20qt. trash can wifey purchased at Home Depot. Problem solved.

The spice rack fell off in our 280rks kitchen. Was going to put a drawer in its place but just laid a shelf now it works for all the long foil and plastic wrap boxes. Click image for larger version

Added a Progressive EMS to the 25RDS today. Pretty straight forward.

Oh my gosh that would have been so much easier than putting it behind the fuse panel!

Lippert window removal tabs?

So who has the tab kit (429436) for sale now that they have changed out the frosted glass?

The AP Products Slim shade fits in the stock opening and is held together with screws provided in the package.

If you have a rig with 2 doors, do you just need 1 kit? can you remove and re-use the tabs on the second door?

I intend to install 2 AP slim shades in my 27BHS when I pick it up in a few weeks.

Thanks,

Fred

I have a kit and I will be changing out my windows when I pick up my rig on Tuesday. I'd be more than happy to make a deal once I am done with the kit.

I'll be traveling in a big loop around Washington and Oregon from Memorial day through the ORV summer camp out.

A few of my mods...

Pass thru lights were incandescent, weak and hot. Maybe used 18 watts? Replaced with 3 watt 300 lumen LED fixture, both sides.

Double light over couch was weak LED, 360 lumens. Replaced with 600 lumen unit and centered at window.

Shower curtain rod moved up and in to serve as towel drying rack and replaced with fold out-in unit to get more room. On the road it will be bungeed to the fixed rod as it swings in and out. Shower curtain has 4 stick-on clips to prevent leaks. (not shown)

Battery powered motion light added to bathroom. Has an on-off switch, too.

Glass behind cooktop removed and added backsplash tiles. Will add another 4" to the top when (more) material arrives. There was no protection on the wood on the left side and if I have to use the left burner I will place a cookie sheet on edge to be a heat shield. The burners really don't put out that much flame, though.
