Since we picked up our new 2250LE late last fall, I've been busy with various projects. The latest one was the addition of a meter and moving the slide switch from the wall next to the slide to the convenience panel.
A position was provided for the slide switch, why they put a dedicated switch panel elsewhere is beyond me. In the process, I moved the slide control box so it was more accessible & visible in the event troubleshooting was needed.
There were three empty switch spots in our panel; I filled all three:
Yes, it does look odd that the meter is sideways, but I mounted it that way for two reasons: One, I could cover the existing nomenclature (Drivers side light?) and it took less cutting to match the meter size. Two, the center is mounted above the dinette seat, so to access it, I stand to the side of the seat. Looking at the center, the meter faces me...
We do not have an arctic pac, so that position was filled with a switch for the meter. I added an additional push button just below the switch for times when I want to check the voltage but not leave it on. (Yea, I could have done the same with just the switch....) I'll add new labels to describe the correct function and to cover the text "Arctic Pac".
The slide switch was smaller than the cutout in the panel, so I cut a hole in the blank-out panel. The meter + is wired into the slide power, which is routed to the fuse panel in the step well. Turning off the house power does not turn off power to the slide, and subsequently, the meter.
I'll report on other projects as I feel inclined.
