Here Im cutting out the flooring for the new access to the plenom. Surprise
#1. The sub flooring in my Newmar is glued down to the plenom and it was a bare
to chip out. I ended up cutting into the plenom by accident because the flooring would
not come out when I had cut through it. I used the Jobmax which was the best tool
for the job.
Furnace removed and you can see where the flooring has been removed. OOPS
see the cut in the plenom. Nothing a little metal tape can't fix. When you do this
be careful the flooring is only 3/4. You will have to chip it out after cutting. As you can
see there is very little space to work in. Also the duct on the right goes to the
register under the sink. Im not sure what I am going to do here yet for now it is
just not connected.
Here you can see that I had to bend the right hand side lip for the new add on
cabinet to fit. I used a hammer and a 2x4 to support the side to make the flattening.
Add on cabinet installed. I pre-drilled the screw hole in the top to help hold the
unit together after the install. There is not enough room to put this in as one unit
so I had to put to furnace in and then the add on cabinet from the inside of the
couch. Surprise #2. No room to fit a screwdriver in to put to screws in to hold the
two units together. I use a hex screwdriver bit and a socket and socket wrench
to put the screws in from the top.
