Nice setup. Is the slide mechanism on the bottom? What was the cost?

Just finished installing LED light strips for steps inside/out. Inside I used a motion sensor to activate the light.

I've done a few things thus far, nothing too big except my battery bank though.

Built a shelf for the front bin, effectively doubling my storage area up front.

Moved my pigtail box up inside the pinbox, it actually hung down, moved the emergency breakaway leads through one of the bolt holes in the side of the pinbox also, they actually got pinched in two at some point.

Replaced the junky expensive Forest River house water filter with a GE Watersmart filter setup.

Added a light to the front bin since for some reason it was left dark.

Added three batteries and a multi position switch so now I have a four battery, split parallel setup. I'll be testing that this September.



Two on the left, two on the right. Interstate group 27 96ah giving me 384ah of deep cycle goodness! In a few years I'll pony up for Trojan 105, then I'll be unstoppable!



How I tied the vents together. Paired on each side then the sides are paired to the original vent hose. All I had to do was drill holes in the floor for the box vents. It's a 1.25" pvc tee from Lowes, a screw through the hose and tee to hold the hose in place, a zip tie to seal the hose against the tee. I ran it across the top and tied it and the positive cable to the hydraulic hoses.



My switch, it's out of an old ambulance. I have the right batteries on position one, left on position two, and it has a both position.



The wiring, I've since adjusted it some. I moved the positive from the left battery to the right battery leaving the ground on the left battery. Now, the pair acts like a battery bank, sharing the load equally.

Since I can switch between battery pairs my converter will only see two discharged batteries at a time and won't have an issue, and since they'll be separated I can place a charger on the isolated pair.

We picked up a new kitchen faucet from Lowe's. The old one is starting to rust out from underneath and was starting to leak. We caught it before it become a major problem. When Thom gets it installed then both water lines will have a shutoff valve instead of just the hot ..... not sure why just the hot had a shut off valve.
Also picked up a ceiling mount for the TV. Thom will have the TV bolted on a pole with the ceiling mount so that it gets bolted under the cabinet at the top and to the entertainment center on the bottom. It should not move while going down the road. When he is done I will take some pictures.

The walls by the front seats were torn up when we got it.

Put some Masonite, water proofed, primed and painted. Then some wood trim. Looks a bit better now.

What to do with original furniture?

I did not read all 56 pages of this thread so I apologize if this has been addressed before.

When owners replace the original rv furniture with more comfortable or functional items, what do you do with the originals?? Is there a resell market or are they pretty much salvage??

I don't know but if you have the small La Z Boy recliners like came in a Sierra for sale I'd like to talk with you. My wife wants one for the house so badly she's threatening to take one from the camper.

I referring to the Flexsteel furniture (dinette and jack knife sofa) that come in the Newmars. I'm looking at purchasing a used rig and know that I will eventually want to replace those items.

I see them advertised on Craig's list quite often. They are perfect for small apartments and dorm rooms.

Thanks V-Rider...I guess I might need to pay more attention to what's posting on craigslist than what I am posting. I'll check it out.
