89 Winnebago Elandan Redo

Finally back to working on our rig after a long hiatus. Have got all the subflooring redone, new 115 A.C. wiring thru out, Currently working on the kitchen. Totally redoing floor and wall cabinets, got the floor cabinets roughed in today. Extended the countertop by 36 inches, by taking it from the wardrobe next to the kitchen. Ran separate circuit wiring for the electric induction cook top and mircowave and refrigerator. Going to use ceramic tile on counter top and back slash. A few pics attached hopefully they will go thru.

89 Winnebago ELANDAN REDO

Really good day on redo efforts. Re-worked some of the original wall cabinets to build wall units for the kitchen, am very pleased how they came out. Very pleased with how easily I was able to mount them. Also got the A.C. power outlets for the cook top and microwave mounted. Hope to get another smaller wall cabinet, to go between the kitchen window and entry door made and mounted tomorrow., along with the door for a fold-down-out trash can area between the main sink cabinets. Is no easy job c8tting the new wall panels cut just right with the radius window corners and gdtt9ng them to fit behind the original interior window frames, but getting there. Meant to get more pics today but daylight out ran me, maybe tomorrow.

89 Winnebago ELANDAN REDO

worked on the original refrigerator alcove , adapting it to house the new power center, microwave, and refrigerator. The power center was originally stuffed into a small cubby hole on the floor between the diner seat and a wheel well. When I removed to old power center it showed signs of rust and corrosion. Putting it on the top shelve in the re-worked alcove, as it already has a external vent for the original 3 way drug unit, thought would work well there to help dissapate heat build up, and definately out of the way of a defrosting frig water, the roof vent will also provide good ventilation for heat build up from the microwave and frig operation. I was able to leave a 5 inch void between the alc9ve wall and the shower/tub wall for an access door to plumbing fixtures, room to mount junction boxes for each of the A.C. circuits, flush mount electrical outlets. I have made red oak face plates for the 3 compartments. I was determined to get the power center off the floor for easier access, and away from busy little grandchildren hands, and to mount the microwave no higher than shoulder level for safety.

This new format will take some getting used to, but such is progress right.
Totally miserable day here in North Florida weather wise. Worked on getting the new power center/converter wired today. I elected to use 6 foot pig-tails on the center itself which will be connected to the various circuits using junction boxes located in the redone frig alcove. I also added a seperdate circuit for an electric fireplace we are putting in. Hopefully can get all installed and connected tomorrow.
