Hey Chuck,

Where did you get the netting? I am also of the "take advantage of every inch of storage space" mindset. I'm thinking a yard or two of netting would be a great addition to my project box.

Thanks for the great ideas!

Ebay Item description "Net netting sports fish cargo golf baseball soccer decorative 8ft wide" seller "liveforit3816" $3 ft plus shipping which is discounted after first foot. NOT stretch material.
This is used but excellent condition net. I just bought one foot and very happy with quality.

Try a cabinet/counter top shop.I used Formica type product on a fridge in one trailer. Use the old panel for a template. Hundreds of patterns/colours to choose from.

Make sure the thickness isn't an issue with the trim cover! Some laminates are quite thick compared to the sheet metal used on the original fridge. Take a sample and check before buying and cutting.

Not that exciting, however I did purchase the little Camco fan that circulates air in the fridge. Will be trying it out tomorrow and will report back with how it works. I'm also considering the fan for the refrigerator exhaust with the solar panel and wondered if anyone out there has good experiences with them and which brand you might recommend. As always, I appreciate all of your input.

Electric awning crank

My springs broke on my Carefree Awning so I replaced it with the Pioneer endcap upgrade. They wanted $50 bucks for a hand crank and I figured I could do better than that. So I went to Lowes and bought a threaded rod and a turnbuckle - $6 total and no cranking.

Bathroom Tile

I've been planing this project for a while. I started by extending the tile in the Kitchen over to the dining table, then removed the carpet in the salon and installed hardwood, then extended the tile in the entry area over to the driver's area. Now, I had to get the carpet out of the rear bath. This took longer to do than the kitchen extension because only one tile was left uncut and some had two cuts and a hole (for screw access). The stainless trim around the access panel turned out great. I got that idea from one of the high end coaches at an RV show. I still have a little caulking to do around the shower where the cabinets meets the tile, but it's good enough for a picture.

Finally got around to doing my led conversions. The grab handle light burned out a few months back, I ordered some four chip superbright LEDs from Oznium.com. I first installed a red led in the handle, Wow! I liked it, wife didn't. She said I'd have too many late night visitors so in went white instead. Works very well, in fact it lights the area and makes it easier to see the locks. Next I converted all the interior lights to warm white led panels, each has 48 3528 SMD LEDs on them. Using T-taps I tapped into the 12v circuits, this way regular bulbs can still be used. Very bright and pleasing to the eye.

Razzman by chance do you have a picture of one of these lights? I may want to reconvert.

The only bad thing about the 48 SMD panels, is they don't include a 1156 type adapter. Looks like they do, but it's more of a flashlight bulb size. I busted some 1156s and made my own with a little soldering and hot glue.

Yeah your right. I used the 194 bulb adapter, pulled off the end leaving a harness. I soldered small spade terminals on the ends. I then used T-taps and tapped into the wires on the backside. Worked great, did 14 total and it can be converted back to bulbs simply by unplugging it.
