Cass Hudson Co.

They say to reinforce the wall it's to be mounted to, I just used a piece of 1/4" aluminum plate cut to size and screwed it to the wall (I also used a few extra screws) to spread the weight around. I used some glue on floor tiles that closely matched the wall paper to cover the exposed aluminum and for all practical purposes you can't tell the difference.

The table now no longer squeaks or wiggles when using the table.

The cost is reasonable and I got a little tour of their facility while I was there as well.

The Pace Arrow is a high end gasser and the addition of the paint work and wheels really sets it off. Very nice. It sounds like you're a DIYer looking for a project type of guy. That coach will soon be one of a kind with some really nice upgrades.

New take off lights from an American Eagle purchased from the Fleetwood factory in Decatur

Bedroom


Dinette area



By couch



Led Tubes in overhead lights from front to back, in fact all bulbs possible in living areas have been changed to LED. Old eyes like lots of light.

I started out looking for a diesel but when my wife set foot in this one (only the second one she looked at ) she decided it was the one she wanted and since she was not really to into getting a motor home I thought it was a good trade off. So much for the Signature I was looking for.

I started from this thread

Just upgrade my 18" fluorescents to LED!

Maybe a little more expensive but worth it. They were shipped in very heavy closed cardboard tubes which was good because one of the boxes was pretty well beat up in transit. I had originally bought just two of them for a trial look.

Leather steering wheel cover looks and feels like real leather because it is, it was installed a few years or so ago



I've posted several times that my overhead TV consul droops and that I thought the TV had been replaced for a lighter one and left the droop. I've been knocking my head against the wall trying to get the TV out, the plans from Fleetwood did not jive with what I could see so I just started prying it apart and while doing so found a release cable about 1/2 way up the TV and thought I had it licked but no such luck. After some more fishing around I found a second release cable on the other side and low and behold the flat screen TV from 2008 is now out on the ground.



Someone did an excellent job when they replaced the TV, you can see where the separation is in the picture below, it looks like they used three drywall screws to secure it. It'll secured with the cabinets all the way up to the ceiling this week.



Now I've got to tear this great looking bit of work out to be able to install a roof mounted GoLight and the dual Hadley air horns.

Pictures not the greatest using an iPad.

Well it seems there is a piece of wood about 2X2 that runs across the roof and they missed the first two screws and now the upright piece of wood screws went into was split by the third one, simply a matter of replacing a very short piece of wood and it'll be better than new. You can see a lot once the inner box for the replaced TV was pulled out, a lot of concern for a very long period of time for no reason.

Still dirty and dusty up on the roof but now the light is in it's not wired yet as the wires will go into the same loom as the Hadley rectangular air horns and I only want to fish them through one time and do it all while the TV is out



The dash controller is wireless as is the hand held remote



Other have posted about no insulation after they've removed their TV this puppy has four inches of it and the wiring is pretty clean and well secured compared to some pictures I've seen. The little rats nest of wires in the lower left is where I moved everything out of my way

One more Chubby hole packed and almost finished it includes a Glendinning 50 Amp Electric cord reel, the 50 Amp Progressive Power Surge Protector, Onan Automatic Generator Start, and the ability to just bypass the surge protector if needed but now after relocating it I can do the jumper trick with out having to take it out.

I'm not inclined to drop the interior headliner so I guess that means go in from the exterior roof to install the air horns
