List of winter upgrades on the Eagle

I think I may have exceeded my expectations on upgrades this year but I am very happy with them and thought I'd share the list with you. I must say that Greg (Trees to These) motivated me on many of them! He is a true artist when it comes to his work!!! By the way, the coach is a 2002 American Eagle

1) Upgrade cockpit TV to 32" Samsung LCD. Required cabinetry work (Turned out awesome!!)
2) Upgrade Bedroom TV to 26" Samsung LCD. Required cabinetry work (Turned out awesome!!)
3) Upgrade surround sound to new 5:1 Samsung
4) Install cherry wood louvers to all 3 Fantastic ceiling vent fans inside-Awesome look! (Made from Trees to These)
5) Trees to These polished all of the Corian countertops to remove scratches and finish to a matt finish instead of a high gloss finish-Looks great!!
6) Installed MCD Day/Night blinds in entire coach. Windshield blinds are powered. (Trees to These) All I can say is "WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!"
7) Had Trees to These manufacture new Cherry wood valances (To cover new blinds) to match cherry wood in coach in entire cockpit area, kitchen and bathroom. Matches existing woodwork to a T!!!
8) Installed passenger cherry wood cup holder/cell phone holder and driver side cherry wood cup holder. Easy upgrade but very functional!
9) Replace roof top refrigerator shroud with new one and painted to match coach. (Old one was brittle and paint was flaking off)
10) Replaced (4) outside docking lights with new ones. (Lenses on the old ones were getting milky colored) New ones have clear lenses and gives it a more modern look.
11) Installed M&G air brake system on coach and Jeep-Works great!!
12) Bought new Queen bedspread and throw pillows from American
13) Repaired leveling jacks
14) Replaced headlights with brighter bulbs
15) Had dealer do my Norcold recall repair


Next mod is to install a mag switch at entrance door and add 2 ceiling lights (one above passenger seat and one above driver seat) and a timer so that the light automatically comes on for 15-30 seconds then dims to off. I will also install an override switch so I can turn them on at an time.

I will be finishing up tomorrow at Trees to These and will post some pics for your viewing pleasure!! Many thanks to Greg from Trees to These-Awesome job!!!

Kevin

Today I located passenger and driver side outside mirror mounts. The chrome was beginning to peel on mine. I'll replace these next...

Just waiting for the valances to get stained and sealed. Hopefully they'll be done next week and I will have the MCD blind installation complete. Greg had to make some custom ones for the cockpit area, kitchen window and bathroom window from Cherry wood and will stain to match. They turned out very nice.
