Good afternoon, Lynne, I would imagine that you and Jerry are quite busy! you can read up anytime. Jay, that table looks nice I'll show it to Eleanor when she gets home, then I'll know if I'm building or buying . Gordon, we planned on some nice outside chairs that will fold up to pack. The cardboard furniture has gone south, or wherever old cardboard goes , but now its pretty much seeing where we can conveniently put things. We have been looking at maybe getting an add a room to go on the awning to add space when parked for awhile, anyone had any experience with one? Good luck with the arch I wouldn't stand under it for awhile .

Unless you're thinking outdoor lounge type furniture , those Strongback fold up chairs are sweet .
Inside , I have a nice office chair that I found on the side of the road !

Hi Popeye, I had never heard of the Strongback chair, I went to their website kinda neet, I think I'll look into some. Installed two more clearance lights and worked in the furnace/reefer area, this is the most complex area in the TH. It has the electrical center, heating w/ducts and the reefer. Drains run thru here as well as the water lines for the bath/shower, I got the wall up that separates that area with the bathroom. Sooo when this area is done it is a huge step forward.

Terry - My thought with that table is you could use it both inside and out. Would work great as a patio setup. Also like how all the chairs store inside the table and it all takes up so little space. Thought about building them until I saw the set was under $300. Other than having the satisfaction of making them myself I can't see a reason I wouldn't buy it. So we decided we would pick up the set and that will be our outside set for the coach.

Terry,

I am glad to see that your knee has improved to the point that you are able to work on the TH again. I am impressed with the work you have done and the imagination you must have had to take this project on. My wife and I bought a 40 year old house that needed completely updated and have been working on it for the last six months while we are living in it but nothing like you have done. I can't wait to see the finished product!

Good Evening, Jay, your right on the table and chairs it would be handy for both. Hi Jerry, Thanks yup the knee is much improved over what it was for sure. We've been involved with a couple house jobs and they are no picnic especially when your living in them at the same time. Have a great night all.

Terry,
Lot of work in that area, but as you said, once this is done, you will progress very rapidly. And as usual, your work is superb.

You're firing on all eight cylinders now, Terry!


I really like the e-track table attachment. A buddy has one in his enclosed (as well as bunk mounts for his kids), and we've seen a lot of creative e-track mounts in race trailers.




Is that the old style Magnetek converter/charger? You might consider an upgrade to the P-D 4600 series inverter converter/charger


Consider adding a small section outside for an outside table mount.

Good Afternoon, Another trip to Home Depot, screws ect, on the list. Still working in the bath area. Frank, thanks, I think your right once that area gets done then moving on to the bedroom area, that's pretty straight forward. MT, I think its like 7.5 cylinders . Yup, its an old style Converter, its on the list to be upgraded, right now with no batteries to worry about its supplying 12 volts for testing ect.

I removed all the old converters from my rigs....... Sell 'em to a ham operator or just junk 'em.

I know , yours has the fuse center , just unplug it . No need to replace. Unless you want a new AC circuit Breaker Box and 12v fuse bank......I know you have the know how if you do.

Solar and batteries cover most of my 12v loads.

I got a nice 15A smart charger (Stanley) at Wally's to cover clouds (or , say 1' of snow on the panel) situations.

I have the Honda for anything else...................

I've been going a LONG time with this set up.

Rebuild

Good Evening, Popeye, the thought was to throw the converter out, but I am going to upgrade to one that will charge properly, but it will be on a switch so I can shut it off. Bap, good to see your old laptop let you play, too bad it won't let you post pics of the Airstream. I worked on the bathroom today, needed a break on the other area, put up two more walls, cut the hole for the drain trap on the tub, positioned the bath cabinet and the toilet, (got to drill the hole for the flange). Need to run the heat ducts. OK the pics are sideways and I can't figure out how to turn them

Good Afternoon, Frank, Thanks!, working on the bathroom walls and a support under the "bathtub" if you call a 24"X36" rectangle a tub . built a wall for the end of the tub and also the doorway, installed the door. Everything needs to trimmed later. Do you think this Reefer will grow up to fit the hole?
