Living 8 years full time in our Pace Arrow Vision. She was a mess bringing her up to snuff for the first two years but we love her and she gets from point a to point b beautifully.

Having the same problem, any pix of the wood size? having a problem seeing it in my mind. did you glue it to the original paneling? I get the 3/4 x1 1/2" but the 2"????? you made a bunch of little pieces or one long piece for each side? did you insert the blocks into the foam?? behind the ceiling panel?

thanks...

I cut several pieces of 3/4 x 1 1/2 x 2" wood which I predrilled screw holes thru the 3/4" thickness and started a screw in and out. I put wood glue on the bottom of the insert wood and screwed in down to press the pieces together. after all holes had been reinforced with new wood and glue dried,I removed the screws and reinstalled the inside skylight. No more loose screws. .

On my previous unit I redid the skylight in the shower as well and inserted a LED strip all around the frame on the inside and conected to regular lights and it looked very nice. Wish I had some pictures to show. But planning on doing same on the Pace Arrow soon

Finaly chose the new floor for the unit we will use the new Lifeproof vinyl board with padding totaly waterproof and also scratchproof. Maybe this will reduce scratching from slides, just maybe.

Thinking we have bought a money pit 1999 Ford model


have had one disaster after another- not even on the road yet... bought this used from an estate with No knowledge of it's condition... 2 mos in, checking the water and the pump had to be replaced. both A/C s had to be replaced, ALL the cpvc was rotten and replaced with braided hose now, fixin to hit the road for 4500 miles and - poof- a whiff of smoke and spent 3 days looking for the transfer relay box.. not sure if we can ever get all the stuff fixed.. the RV is packed and ready to leave with 2 teens. I am an Electrician (on a Ferry from Alaska) and can do a multitude of things, but knowing nothing about this RV and finding the location of switch boxes etc. has been harrowing to say the least... at 70 yrs old I am thinking I should have bought something different.. and hindsight is always 2020- today (2 months later) I am tracing the burnt wires and trying to fix the NO Neutral on the whole motorhome... did get a manual from Intellitec and this awesome link from here ... so , onward,, really wanted to take this trip before Schools starts again.. ekkk http://www.irv2.com/forums/f107/tran...nt-118232.html

Motorhomes that sit for very long time develop more problems then those that a used. When you buy a motorhome you need to have a full inspection done of the entire unit before taking it out on a trip and then that first trip shoul be a short one and all systems shoulb be checked and rechecked before a 4500 mile road trip.

Dear Pace Arrow friends with a U shaped dinnet. Do you use the dinnet as a sleeping place and what does the cushion look like. Because my unit came without a cushion and I have never seen one set as a bed.
