That overhead scraping is a real pain, eh? (Can't hear ya ... EH?) I'm trying hard not to imagine it.

This isn't related to the 12v wiring, then? Wotcha doin on that front? (Martin has done an incredible amount of rewiring on various coaches -- w/ me on the other end either pushing or pulling wire or a fish.)

Our 12v outlets currently won't light even the infamous rope lights, although 12v appliances & lights seem okay. Turns out, the voltage drops immediately to 7.5 or so when something is plugged in. �� Martin hasn't figured that out yet, so we'll ask the Thor techs to deal w/ it at the rally in October. X fingers they can. I need my ropus lightus!

Here's to fancy ceilings designed inhouse, and to upper body strength!

Cheers!
Hi, Denise!
I found basically the same problem with the voltage drop. I ran heavier gauge wire from the source to the splitting point to allow for the probable drop in available voltage. The manufacturers tend to cheap out on the feeds because we will never ever want light or electricity where they didn't think to run it during construction. BTW I do admire Martin's prowess with a soldering torch. Very nice work on the lighting of the panel.

BTW Denise says Hi back and she is quite pleased with the added light in the bedroom area and is looking forward to being able to see at night in the midsection of Gracie.

I thought it was Oklahoma where the winds came barreling cross the plain?

Ain't been through there with a moho so can't really answer your question.

Not in a motorhome, many times in a car or truck; grew up in NE. Yes, it always blows

Now OK, that is in a class by itself. Rode across in 2009 on my motorcycle. I swear I had a 10* list to port for the entire trip.

Had a fun afternoon, a little tongue-in-cheek here. The dogs got in a fight Friday. When I separated them, got bit on my wrist. Nothing special, it has happened before. This time was a little different. Noticed my wrist was swelling around the bite and turning red. Went to the walk-in clinic after lunch. Clean it up,put a bandage on it, nothing to it. Oh, BTW, when was your last tetanus shot? Turns out they could not find where I last had one, soooooo Darn things burn.

Love the dogs, but was not too happy with Clyde about that time. Now I have to take antibiotics for 10 days. That means happy hour consists of a soda.

That's because we're all happy when you're asleep.

So I have to tell youse mutants what a nice little town Payola, KS is and how great Marty and Bob are.

We wimped out and didn't make it to the Farmers Market. Marty said it started at 7:30 and ended at 11. Well I think I got up at 10. My bad. But...

I did have lunch with them at a really good BBQ joint in Payola. And Annie and I really like Bethovens #9 in Payola. German with some Italian mixed in for good measure. A desert counter to be appreciated from afar for me but man... they have you covered.

I had my first beer since I don't know when. And it was a good one, Paulaner Salvator Double Bock. There is no PoP... but the're witnesses.

So we're doing the TV thing and headed to MMDC-R tomorrow. More mutants to tag on the way west and south and west again. And south... or...
