Getting ready to purchase the Bug Screens. Where did you buy, any specifics would help. I am not sure if they are all standard. Thanks in advance.

Bought mine at Amazon.com
They have them to fit most any model, and the copy below each one describes what it will fit (i.e. Suburban, Atwood, 6gal, 10gal, etc.). Prices are competitive.

We ordered our bug screens from Amazon. Don't remember the part numbers but they might not be the same for your Solera, depending on the model you have. The screens are for your water heater, furnace and refrigerator. On the water heater, I added an additional screen for the louvered vents. You will see that bugs can also go through there.
The only problem I had was with the refr. vents as I had to cut a hole in the screen for the drain tube to go through...

Besides all the practical stuff I've done (or in the process of) like the sway bar, LED lighting, carpeting in the cab, wall mounted cup holders on both sides of corner bed, and other little storage things, I've also done some bling.

The industrial exhaust pipe looks pretty cheesy and the exhaust was hitting my scooter when I carry it on the hitch mounted rack so I wanted a turn down to redirect it. Saw they had a small one for the generator exhaust so decided to do them both.

removing the dinette

Since this thread is about mods, I think this is appropriate. First of all, I took out the table. It was surprising how heavy the table top was. Then took out the cushions, removed the screws holding the plywood "seats-pieces of plywood" in place. That was the easy part. On the side where the seat belts come out is a steel bracket bolted and screwed to the floor of the slide out. The nuts are hex head and it takes someone on the inside to hold the nuts with a 3/4 in wrench and someone underneath the slide with a 3/4 in socket wrench to remove the bolts. There is one bolt that won't come out of the slide because there is no clearance between the slide and the coach wall. So, just leave it in place and hope that it doesn't get in the way when you put something in to replace the dinette. Back to the bracket...there are many screws (with square heads) to remove and once that's done, you can remove the bracket.
Remove all the screws holding dinette components and it just comes right out...
Back to Post #44 above:
In order to get the sofa thru the door it was necessary to remove the 4 bolts on each end that hold the armrest. Then, open the sofa like it was a bed and it went right through the door with plenty of clearance on each side. Put the ends back on and you're good to go... It turned out that the bolt left in place in the slide (pure luck) was in the right place and the sofa just slid past it...

I haven't made pics yet because the manufacturer failed to include the two bolts that hold the drawer panel (a center drawer) in place.
Not advertising for this company..nor affiliated in any way with them..
Our sofa is a Flexsteel 4075-58EB and is 67 inches long and has a drawer in the center. The distance between the walls where the dinette was is 68 1/4 in so there is just a little clearance on each end. We LIKE IT!!

Our dining table has become a 48 by 24 aluminum folding table with adjusting legs (when we get it). We decided not to install any kind of table with floor mounts or the like...just go with the folding table...

Wow..sorry for the long post...

Slow_Moving .... do post pictures when you can. I really would like to see the finished product. I use the dinette table too much to make the trade, but I still want to see it!
