I found in my 89 Winnebago Elandan, that the previous owner had done a lot of electrical work under the dash and a lot of wires were left unplugged. I found one that was just hanging there, plugged it back in and my windshield wipers work now. Got a lot more wires to figure out.

I have this cardboard pattern/sewing cutting board that folds to about 3' by 1' when open it's about 3' x 6'. It's the perfect thing to stuff somewhere to have handy for "just in case"

You are right though, those staples can take a chunk out of you. lol

In our last Class A, someone did some sort of strange wiring...some lines changed color two or three times and always behind the window trim, under the dash or some other hidden area. One of these wires began in the overhead, drivers side, wound up going to the dog house and disappeared never to be seen again somewhere beyond the motor.

Glad that's my DH's department

The PO installed a new leather sofa, quite proud of his install too. Didn't take me long to figure out where the large washers in the storage bay came from. A check under the sofa showed me that the sofa was screwed to a couple of 2x2s that were angle screwed to the floor, all done with 1-1/4 inch drywall screws.
