My problem with luan is that the stuff is practically hydrophobic and should never be used as an exterior product. I know that theoretically it is never supposed to contact water, but one little leak & it disintegrates. At least 1/2" cdx ply can take a little water abuse.

awning

replace the dometic A&E awning lift handle. old one wouldnt fully disengage the peg allowing the awning legs to adjust. Used to have to get a screwdriver to push the peg in. Got tired of doing it.

Works like a charm.

Next, im replacing the quickee step !!!

Replaced all window coverings with new shades(92 Bounder). Eliminated front curtain and replaced with roll-down blackout shades on the side windows and blackout-suction-cup-stick-on the windshield thingy. I found a local company that sells it's mis-cut blinds (still new) for $4 foot. It took a while to gather all of the shades, but got it all done for under $200. Yes I am a cheapskate. More pics to follow.

More pics. Yes I used different colors for the bedroom due to limited availability of the blinds.

Built some new oak cabinet doors yesterday to cover up the holes that will be left when the old tube type NON HD Tv's are removed.

Mounted them today and drilled them for the new flat screen TV's.
Mounted up the TV's onto the outside of the doors to check the measurements and fit.

Going to work just fine.

Now if I can get some good warm weather I'll stain and varnish them to match the factory Oak cabinet doors. I hear Winter is almost done here! Yea!

Thanks for posting this up. I have a friend in the Mini Blind business and I'm thinking he'll have some mis cut blinds I can pick up off him cheap for my Fleetwood. Great idea for a source.

Put up the front curtains, which are hotel grade shower curtains, for about 20 bucks in them, instead of 200.00 for front curtains.

That was very smart when you think about it Jerry!

On almost every coach I've bought, the front curtains have had water stains on them from condensation at the front Windsheild!

Great idea!
