Looks good.

Did you wrap your battery wires yourself, or did it come that way?

Also... Anyone install a battery disconnect switch?

I have it purchased and plan to install it this week when we get back home. I just can't decide exactly where to put it...

Crappy signal here so I can't search well...what are you guys doing for ventilation on the bottom bunk? Fine on top with the vent. I know there's the ladder back that can go but any forced air solutions?

So We brought the new girl home. I think we got a good one. Only minor issues. Looking forward to the many happy times ahead.

My son loves the bottom bunk... So we currently have no plans to mod that area.

I'm noodling an idea. Cut a square hole behind the ladder and make it a sliding panel. When it's open rig a fan to attach blowing into the bunk using the plug just to the right...
Need to figure how to make the panel slide and how to attack the fan so it's removable.

Also wanted to mention to watch the current draw... Today had on AC, water heater and fridge. Proved to be too much. Had to switch water heater to gas and it was all good.
