1973 Superior Rebuild

Hi folks, I'm happy to report that with just a few minor repairs the superior that sat for 13yrs. will be able to move this weekend so I can begin the total interior remodel. So far the cost has been about a $150.00. I plan on using as much of the appliances as i can but also plan on inserting some new tech. Any suggestions or pointers are welcome. I dont get the chance to get on here much, but know your input is appreciated.

If you camp off the grid, consider switching your 12v lighting to LED. There are many Youtube videos and threads on IRV2 that show how to replace fluorescent bulbs with LED strips. The cost is minimal if you buy the rolls of strips on Ebay.

I did it to 5 fixtures on my RV and it cuts the amps used to about 1/5. Plus they were brighter and better color balanced than the fluorescents.

There are LED 'bulbs' that plug right in where the incandescents go and saves even more power.
