The redo continues

The redo continues with all new curtains. Found some great material at Wally World $2/yd. All the curtains came to about $11 of material. Also changed out all the interior lights as the old ones were yellow and dim. Found some "euro" style on the internet. Easy change out.

Added an LED TV to the back wall. Because the mount holes on the TV are on a very flimsy plastic cover we will not travel with the TV mounted on the wall. Picked up an easy to lift off wall mount so all we do is unplug the power, slip off the antenna cable and lay it on the bed. 30 seconds each way.

Another upgrade has been to change out the complete 12 volt power delivery system. The old wiring had a very hot running ac/dc converter and the wiring attached to it was a mish-mash of corroded connections. All of that was dumped and an Iota 45 amp 3 step smart charger was mounted in the back well along with a new power block for distribution to all the 12 volt users. The old single 12 volt battery was dumped and 2 T 105 Trojan 6 volters were installed. Should have no more 12 volt issues. All 120 volt stuff will be shore power connection right now as no inverter is contemplated for a while.

Great job! Almost makes me wish for such a project. Think that urge will go away quickly however.
