I never got a chance to clean it out after camping last weekend. I just pulled it up to the house and plugged it in. Its been raining the past couple days. Yesterday afterwork I came home and cranked up the air on high. it was very hot and humid. After a hour or so I went in to get the cloths hamper, some stuff outta the fridge ect. It was raining inside under the air conditioner. Took the bottom cover off couldn't see anything. Got on the roof took that cover off. Found plugged drain tubes. Now I have to take the whole thing apart.

Started taking the roof sheathing off yesterday. Today will finish that task. Then will start installing dimmable led lights throughout.

replaced the seat cable on my driver seat so the seat can rotate. No old cables available due to improved redesign, this means larger levers, enlarging the mounting hole. No time left today to attack the passenger seat.

We bought a 3.2 cu ft dorm refrigerator to replace our dometic that died and will use the extra space for more storage. we never filled our old fridge so we think this is going to fit the bill just nicely.

LED Replacements

I just replaced 10 of our 1156 light bulbs with LED bulbs, another 20 to go. This is an expensive conversion, anyone have a source that is cheaper than $24.95 each?

The M4 bulbs are highly regarded. Looks like they sell the 1156 type for 12.99

Thanks all, this is going to make my project a whole lot cheaper, I should have checked here before I ordered the original 10.

Lights over the mirror in the bathroom wasn't working, scared I would have to run wires down to find a break.....found it was just a bad ground at the housing!!! All three bulbs were blown, so new bulbs tomorrow.
Also found the ice maker does work, for a while then the water won't stop dripping so over night I had a half full pan of solid ice. May just turn water off and use it as a freezer.
