Terry,
It sounds like they know what is going on and I have seen over 300,000 miles on those rear gears without any problems, if not abused.

Good Morning, Frank, It was my recommendation to go with another rear because of the time factor, its just easier and faster to swap the whole thing. Well it was NOT supposed to rain today but guess what.......its raining, throws my whole schedule off. Sooo going to the store today to buy more "stuff" and hoping the rain stops later to get things setup to work outside.

Terry - you can never have too much stuff. The problem I have is finding it after I get it home. I can remember setting it down someplace safe so I will remember where it is. Just have way too many "safe" places.

I like the change of orientation for the bed and the idea of drawers under it. Our 5er has a lift and that works OK as well. Can sure get a lot of stuff underneath but what a pain to get anything out with the bed hanging over your head. The coach is full of operating equipment for the slide and bed so there is no room for stuff underneath it.

Good Afternoon, Just got back from our shopping trip, more 2X4's, I cut them up to make all kinds of things, mostly cut'em in half to make frame work inside. Gordon, the drawers will be on each side of the bed and I will have a couple of gas struts to lift the bed, as you say lots of storage under it, we will be building a bed system that will be stored there for extra sleeping area (granddaughter may not let us go alone).

Terry - we got a Coleman inflating bed for a gift from my brother and sister in law. Folds up really small and inflates to make a double bed. I think they come in various sizes but this one works great.

Has it own pump so easy up and down.

Gordon, I've seen those, I think that would be a great idea for the Granddaughter, a twin is what we are building.

Geez Terry,
You must have been tickled with two whole days without rain!
Finally got enough sun to see I have to move the location of the solar panels.
The antenna cast a shadow over two of them where I was planning to put them.
Now have to wait for the extension cables to finish up.
Bedroom looks great, I think you'll like it that way. What did you do to reinforce the front so you could remove the brace and panel? (Maybe didn't have to once it was all together?)

Ed

Good Morning, Ed, Yup it sure was nice for sure, should be nice for a couple more. I put up a couple of pics to show what I did, I left 3" of the brace and left the top and bottom to tie both in to what was there. Actually the head of the bed has become a structural part of the nose.

Terry,
I noticed how you cut out the center rib and wondered how you were going to tie it in. As usual you had an excellent plan in mind to tie it all together. Again Excellent job!

Hi Frank, Thanks, I wasn't real sure until I got into it how it was going to go, I kept telling Eleanor she was responsible for the nose falling off . LOL. We are doing the covering on the pieces that are going above the bed should have them done today.

Here's the first panel up, look at the top of the pic and you'll see where it is going. Working on the sides in the nose now.

The round part of the nose at the head of the bed will make it a wonderful place to "lounge" while reading or laying in bed and having a coffee.

Is Eleanor going to do the tufting at the head end?

That will look exceptional. And it will be a very comfortable place to lean back and relax. When we get together let me know what time you would like coffee in bed. I will bring over a couple cups of fresh brewed coffee for the two of you to enjoy.
