I'm not sure if it could be an issue, but on the slide cover I installed, when I recently raised the strip on the outside wall to stop the sqeaking caused by the bottom of the vinyl rubbing on the trim (black aluminum) and to better shed water; it produced a rather large opening that air entering at speed could be an issue. I made a shield for it.

I also made a ladder for the garage bed. I reasoned if the motorcycle was in there and I need to use the bed, with the bed pinned at a height that would still be above the bike and yet provide a means to get into a bed, that is right at 4 feet off the floor. I wasn't sure the flimsy trim piece could support it, so it slides between the bed and trim and is supported by the rail running east and west. I also drilled new holes (17/64) for the support pins.

Not sure if I shared photos of LED blue mode and reading lights.

Slide Awning

WW,
First time poster and I've been following your work closely. Am looking to order a slide awning and wondered which one you would suggest and any tips on the install. Thanks for any help or guidance! Really like the manufactured air foil but know that would be just a little outside my wheel house!

MX, that portable is a 10k Haier. I bought it thru HD online. Giving it a good shake down. Did a very good job dehumidifying and nice that , so far, I haven't had to drain the tank; it evaporates it. You can hook up a drain hose if you need to. It is also good with fan only. Has a remote, too. I used one of the blank plate type pieces and cut a hole for the pop off piece, which comes with a block off plate. Directly below the exhaust I made a hole through the coroplast and screened it. I sound like an ad, huh?

Hi Dunnage, and welcome! I really wanted to match the awning but gave up and got white. Got it thru ShadePro. I can give you the particulars later. Installation isn't that hard, but I recently changed the height if the rail on the wall. Per their instructions / measurnents... caused it to rub on the top if the slide surround and squeak like the devil. I can help you avoid that... the foil is made of 1/16" aluminum diamond plate which, is easily bent. Made a paper pattern.. Cut out with snips... Folded it... Tweaked it... Its 3M taped on.

I get heartburn pretty bad, so I built angled pieces to raise the head of the bed 8". I insulated it later

And a good ad I might say. I see u ran some power to it. Would the plug in the garage handle it. Believe it's a 15 amp breaker. Are u able to run your main ac along with this one at the same time. I believe your main is the 13.5. Mine is a 15 and just wondering if they could run together. I'm thinking not on 30 amp setup.

Did so minor mods in the past month or so. Time to FINALLY post up the pics.
First is a tv for raining days. Surprised how well the antenna picks up OTA stations (even in the down postion). But you need the boost for sure.
Second is some press wood shelves for big pantry. Still need to trim them for a cosmetic look.
Third is some more shelving but the TV wall.
Love using this camper.
