It makes a world of difference when you can still use it while changing it.

You posted this originally on Pirate didn't you?
I think that's where I followed it before.
Nice work!
Will be doing the same to the interior in mine here in a few short weeks.

I live and play in Montana, the red rock geology is so foreign and so magical to me. I love slot canyons!!

I'm going to look at your Fabric Place and see Really like the flooring you installed and nice COLOR change.
What are you going to do with that com-fie Drivers chair? Recover it?
Can't wait for the next chapter.
Tim
I'm really pleased with how the fabric has worn!

I'm hesitant to recover the mauve velvet chairs, they're so comfy!!!!


Thanks all for the great responses!

Today I built a new over-sink cabinet for the bathroom, primed it, put LEDs in the porch light (hopefully no bugs!), put laminate on the 2nd dinette table top, and built a new wall mount mechanism for it. Mom and dad are visiting, dad helped with the LEDs (I can do it, but he wanted a task!), and installed my cup holders for me. Mom helped with the paint.

Dad and I determined that the porch light was wired with the socket positive and the pin negative. We wanted the pin positive to follow common convention, so I simply swapped the leads in the fridge access door. Found the blue lockouts very corroded, so I exposed clean copper and tinned all the ends before retwisting them.

That's me, Curtis!

I love Moab! Still have my Rodeo. Worked on it yesterday in fact.

I enjoyed your build when you posted it over there and got a kick seeing your family with Moab in the background. Thinking of going there this Summer and showing Melissa some of the sites. She's never been with me because most of my trips were with the guys from Pirate and 4X4 Wire tearing our rigs up.
Been playing there so many years I can brag I got to do Lions Back when it was still open. Loved it! Both up and down!

Moab is one of those places you gotta experience at least once.

Good to have you here with us Shawn!

Good morning gang...

Steady as she goes Shawn!

I will be doing LEDs throughout my camper as well... What gets me though is the price of them when purchased through RV suppliers like Camping World.
Seems to me that 12v DC Automotive grade should work just fine as long as the outlets match. Or a fella can always repurpose automotive outlets to work as well...

I have all LED 110v lighting on the outside of my house and for the most part the bugs don't gather.. There are still some moths that seem to be attracted to them..

By the way Shawn,

If you are so inclined, you can go to the User CP "Control Panel" and look down the left side and find the link to Edit Signature.. There you can add your name and any particulars you'd like to share about your rig, etc..

I will try to post screen shots but my iPad does not work well for that..

Was on Expedition Forum yesterday and one of the guys doing a rebuild over there used USB powered Led reading lights on flexible stems in his camper for map lights in the navigators seat. Been wanting a simple removable reading light in my bedroom and this was perfect. Even found a dual 12 volt power and USB charging station plug mounted on a nice plate to set up and run the thing. Plus it will give me a place to charge my phone by the bed.
The best part is these lights are less than $5 bucks each. So I could mount some in several places in my MH.

Here's a link to the outlets I'm talking about.

and there are so many different style US powered map lights Google will overwhelm you.

I like our little Towrig forum there, too...friendly people and great tech.

I remembered your diesel-swapped MH and was trying to recall which poster you were over there!

I remember my first trip there, seeing rigs on Lions Back. Amazing that you don't even see tire marks on it now. Navajo Sandstone is tougher than tire rubber!

Do you do EJS? I have never been...being a Toyota guy, we're avoiding the craziness next week and heading farther south.

Not only the scenery and geology, but also friendly people and some fun restaurants!

I soldered my own LEDs, I'll find a link. I bought most of them two years ago for my previous project when bayonet base LEDs were $18/ea and I paid under $1/ea.

5050s are much brighter per LED than 3528s.

These are from the PBB uber cheap LED interior light thread

These work great in an exterior application
http://m.ebay.com/itm/310681089109
Curtis might recognize them from the PBB rocklight thread.

Finally, check Home Depot for LED under-cabinet lights, which are usually run off a 12V transformer. Cut off the xfmr and wire them in:
