Good Morning All, Getting here late this AM, had to make another trip to Home Depot, I don't have to steer anymore my truck knows the way . Frank, hoping for paint this weekend . Curtis, too bad we can't distribute this water better, crazy! I always liked Cummins engines. Gordon, Thanks. Ed, that thought was bounced around, I built that early in the project and in hindsight I could have done it different. Now it will serve as storage, it will be split 70/30 with the 30 being in the bottom and closed in with doors, storage probley for bedding ect. and the top open? have went there yet .

That's exactly what I pictured for that space.

All the talk about diesels , maybe I need to do a diesel instead of my 350 ,,,,6mpg ! OR maybe I just need to run avgas 100+ octane!

Just walked up to the rec hall to get free wi-fi for some downloads.
Headed down to the lake next , still pretty quiet here but that will change this weekend. Probably for the rest of the summer to Labor Day.

Hi Popeye, I was wondering how the workcamping was going. If I had the choice I would go with diesel, just a different kind of pulling power, that being said they aren't for everyone.

Hi Terry;
Just reading a thread about ice in the refrigerator and water on the floor.

defeat the ice demon in your residential fridge

It seems like there is a drain/pan installed under residential fridges to deal with the drainage when the fridge defrosts?? Have to think about it for a while because we did not install a drain in the house for the fridge. Not sure why they would be different in an RV than a house.

I wonder if a drain should be placed in the TH?

UPDATE: Just went out and checked our coach. There is NOT a drain under our residential fridge.

Love the vent on the side!
Great way to avoid holes in the roof. I wonder why more mfrs don't do that?

Good evening, Gordon, When the reefer comes I'll have to check if there is a drain. Your right why in an RV and not in your house? I don't have one in mine. I just remembered this reefer doesn't have an auto defrost, one reason I bought it because it saves on power, Have to investigate. Ed, I'm not sure, I wanted to save room on the roof plus didn't want the holes, I have seen these vents before and thought it was a good idea.

Terry,
I'm with Ed, on the vents on the side, 1 less thing to leak on the roof, less of a problem on the side. You might want to take your TH to the manufacturers when you finish and show those greedy idiots how an RV should be built, your drains look great.
Frank

Terry, one thought on the manual defrost fridge, as we have two of them here at the house, and one big auto defrost! The manual defrost has a catch pan/bucket, to catch the water as it defrosts, and is removable from the back for dumping. If you let the freezer get too frosted up, before you defrost,and the pan/bucket is not big enough, it will over flow!. So when you get yours and see how it is set up, you could always drill a hole in the catch pan/bucket, fix a hose to it, down thru the floor, to a shut off. Then when you want to defrost, just turn off the power, open the drain valve, and walaaaaaa!!!!! As I am thinking, your's will be built in, and the pan or the back of the fridge will not be very accessable? Hopefully, yours will come out the front, and it will be a moot point! Just a thought!
Rail!
