Yes, I like the idea of the combo storage/seating. I did open up the floor plan.

Fixing my waste dump system

When we first bought our 2010 Aerbus the dump connection was mounted theu the floor at the very back of the compartment to hook hose up to dump I had to crwl underneath on my back, Yuk!!!

I cut off off fittings after draining & flushing the tanks.


Cut hole out larger where old fitting went thru the floor to fit an 8" boat hatch cover.
And glued on new pipes & installed new black & gray valves and added a rotating discharge valve.

Job complete with macerator hooked up for dumping the tanks at home

And with hose hooked up for campground dumping

Rex2010, I can't believe that they designed it that way originally? Makes no sense, especially on a higher end coach! Nice job with the fix.

TV Change

We wanted to change the old tube TV to a flat screen so this is what I did.



Old TV.



Cut Cabinet in half.

I think that looks great and factory! I am thinking of doing the same thing with ours since I did remove the original big tube TV. Thanks for sharing.

Great job. Do you have to store the new TV when you're on the road?

Smile Water Heater Switches

I can't be absolutely sure, but the wall switch with water heater marked on it is actually the block heater for the Cummins engine since they get recalcitrant in the cold, and the switch on the control panel that you pictures is the actual water heater for the coach. At least that is what it in my coach, a 2001 34' DP Rexhall Anthem with a Cummins ISB and Allison 5 speed. In my coach that switch is labeled "engine heat", and because diesels get picky in the winter, a block heater is sometimes necessary to get them going in the morning. Best of luck to you, enjoy your coach!!!

I was wondering why my 2000 Rexhall diesel has two turn ons for the water heater.

Also on this panel.

Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Yes but it's not a problem. I simply unplug the power and cable then set the TV on the floor under the dinette next to the fireplace and set the dinning chair in front of it. The biggest challenge was to find the right size TV. Ended up with a 37".

I did it...I Zep'd my roof

I had read many ways to try and manage the white streaks from the fiberglass roof. I finally decided on Zep Wet Look Floor Finish.

I scrubbed the whole area by hand, using Bartenders Friend and a stove top scrubbing pad. Then, I applied four layers of the Zep.

Front cap shot:


Shot of upper roof edge:


Shot of rear cap, you can see ladder reflected in the shine:


I used something like this for quick application over large areas:

The warning would be to wash the pad before using it to wax, or color might bleed. I used a small microfiber pad for smaller detail areas, like around running lights.

Hopefully, I can get a few years before it needs to be stripped and rewaxed.

It rained one day after I completed the job, and no white streaks!

I did the same Zep treatment to my 2007 Winnebago Class C before we bought our 2010 Aerbus. The Zep held up very well for the 2 years it was on.

John, I do the same treatment to our Aerbus every year. I just got done applying about 4 coats to the rook and it looks great. I haven't had any white streaks ever since I started doing this. Yoo hoo! I use the Poly Glo product for the sides and it looks absolutely like new. I get compliments all the time which is nice.
