Yup it does. Reminds me of a spaghetti dinner! Can never have too much wiring and circuits.

Just curious about the height of the bedroom above the main floor. Looks to be about 3'. Are you thinking about a reverse aisle? Most likely a center aisle but with an open floor plan everything is on the table.

We are still in the cold. Snowed last night but not enough to rationalize starting the tractor.

Good Afternoon, Hi Frank, yes just starting the floor has kinda made things look so much better, and these couple of warm days is very nice to work outside again. We put up the awning today. Only took one hour.

Terry,
One of the new toyhaulers in the park has a carefree awning over the ramp, it looks like it is powered with no side supports. It is a new Spartan model. I will try to get you more info when I talk with the couple that owns it.

Ha! Looks like a mess Terry. Hope you can get them all straight in the end. Otherwise when you flush the toilet the microwave will come on. Could be a shocking experience. Good luck. Ha!

Yikes that would be something, might be worse if the other way around! It looks worse than it is, its really pretty simple, just making sure I have all that I need, I am going slow with it, and sometimes just set down and look, trying to see things where they are going to be. Its unusually warm today here, 67degs , so I installed the antenna. Here's a picture of the wiring when I started, now thats a mess .

That bottom picture looks like under the table for my model train layout. What a mess.

When I pulled the donor FW apart the wiring was left largely intact, with labels on everything, I just straightened out and hung it where it was in the other FW. Simple

After eating too much I had to go work on the TH, so I set up and started to insulate the garage area.

It even looks warmer. Not too long and a candle will keep the inside warm.
