Dave, I got the LED Rope lights from The old Wildwood Manaco service center about 5 years ago. They are the ones for a Signature. They consist of 6 ea approx 5 ft long clear tubing with the "old style" LEDs in the tube. 12 volts. Each window has to, the electrical connects in the top center. I think I paid around 75.00 bucks for all. I have had them a long time. Every now and then I connect them up to be sure they work. Like I said they are old style very low watts and light from them. Just right for the back light of the window valances. I have mounted them. I used clear plastic 3/8 inch wire clamps and hot glue. Thats the way Monaco did it back in the day. They have been holding about 5 years. I still need to run the main power and switch. When I test them now, I just use a 12 volt alarm battery and some jumper wires. DW will not let me leave them that way lol... anyway one day I will drill the top of the cabinet through the valance and pull power from the puck lights. Likw I said I really wanted them all to come on with one switch, but I can only do that on one side of the rig. The other window will have to have seperate power and switch. Got any idears???

I got the EMS installed put in the cabinet between the to chairs
at the back window, I took the cabinet out for easy install what
was funny was I just redid my stairs there were 4 screw holding
the stairs in place I took out 18 screws holding the cabinet
I guess that cup of coffee or glass of wine needs more support
then people walking up and down the stairs.
still have to install remote display on the cabinet

Faucet

Replaced the bathroom faucet with a Moen residential unit. The OE faucet outlet was so close to the sink edge, it was nearly impossible to wash hands. New faucet raised and brought out the outlet. And it pivots.
Super easy mod! The plumbing for both faucets were identical. No additional parts or adapters needed. Took me 20 minutes including pressure test connections. Some systems may be different so check before you try this.
