about 8 months in to it we are living in the rv 50% of the rv systems are coming on line
but with just like a plywood roof its not any better then sleeping in a hot car its not intell 4 more months that a lot of things are fix and working like the abs on the chassis fun when you are new to this type of system and wring is all hand made its takes time like the low 60 psi air warning just came on line last month



this is the same sink from part 1

so now to the frunt cap i fond a 2006 excursion but as you can tell the cap is not made for a rv that is 12.8 high so its back to making parts bye hand

most rvs the wight is the same 8.3 8.4 so if you wanted a newer cap its not hard to find a newer year and go for it all wiring was made new some used here and there

you can see the part i made to fill in the top

sorry looks like the pics of the floats are to big well have to play with them to add them latter but here you can see trying to get every down to see what i had to work with

i an 6.2 high and the inside roof height was 6.3 i know i would not be putting the ACs back on the roof as i had a large solar system going up there so i raised the roof by 16 inc 3 or 4 more then the top of the ac would be and started filling in
