The picture of your window side dressing (???) was shown to DW who is in the process of redoing the window trim and valances in our unit. She likes what you have done and will be copying the treatment to the sides. Thanks.

Last week I ordered a couple of speakers for the front of the ACE, Safe t plus and bracket, and a Garmin RV760LMT. Man this thing is getting costly, oh well...

Thanks, but I can't credit for the valances, they came like that from Fleetwood.

Nice! I wanted to do something similar. My RV is stored right along my property line. I asked my neighbor if they would mind, because it would totally block their view of the mountains. They were polite, but said my RV blocked enough of their view. I agreed not to build one.

ScanGaugeII

Installed my scan gauge in the existing slot that the Fischer Cbox (cd holder) that I do not use. Unscrewed box from dash and measured opening on face after removing trays. Opening was 1.5 tall(perfect fit) and length was .5 too wide. I cut a couple of filler pieces from the cd tray face and inserted them on both sides.
1st pix is old cd tray(not my rv but same cd tray)
2nd pix is after install.

4. Installed TPMS that has been sitting for two years.

5. Fixed a couple of the day/night shades broken strings.

6. Wilson cell phone extender.

7. Wall mounted new TV in bedroom and now have a much needed storage cabinet from where the old one was.

8. New hydraulic lift arms for the outside compartments.

9. Tailgater portable satellite system.

10. Replaced the 12v spots with LEDs and also replace the outside porch and light over water station with LEDs.

11. New sink facet.

12. New engine plugs and wires.

13. and lots of other minor repairs/fixes.
