You can see in the first picture there are two different stop switch locations, I moved mine up where you can see those screws. Be sure to remove both stop screws. I missed one and bent the rail at he other screw.

One of the other things I might try if needed will be to move the complete system up if I can verify there to be enough framing.

I've got the lower bed out but here is a look at where the brackets are with the beds fully raised. Be sure if you raise the stop switch to make sure the bed is out of the way of the motor.

Stop switch is below the motor inside of the track.

I just moved the stop switch up on mine and I ALSO forgot the screw on the other side of the track. Broke the screw and a piece of the screw wedged in between the bracket and rail. Managed to get it loose after hammering on the bracket. I was planning on taking the top bunk out but after that happened I just decided to leave it in.
Did manage to gain a bit more clearance under the bunks tho..

Installing video cables to front bedroom.

I finally found the route for the video cables to the front bedroom. When I had to replace the cover over the bathroom vent, I found the routing under the vent moulding.

I am going to install my HDMI and video cable by going through the bathroom.

Rear patio

We added a rear patio to TH. We put two jack stands to support the rear deck, a step ladder, and used the ramp locking rails as a hand rail for the patio.

You do need to be a little careful at the but it is still nice on cool days.

Nice NG2951,

I thought about trying something like that but was afraid my door would not handle the weight.

Creative patio mod!

That's the most appealing aspect to me with the larger TH...the rear ramp patio with fence & awning, nice extension on indoor space

Keyed Switch On Bunk Beds for Child Safety

We picked up a lightly used 2013 Puma 351 last week and I'm already making mods before our first trip. My kids are now 5 and 7, so they love to push buttons, to keep them safe when my head is turned I replaced the standard rocker switch for the power bunks with a keyed switch. I transferred the keyed switch from our old Travel Trailer to the 351, that is why the cover plate is Brass.

I bought the keyed switch on Amazon and figured out the correct wiring using an ohm meter then soldered the wires and crimped on spade connectors. I filed the Brass cover plate slightly to fit the keyed switch and used a piece from a box to fill in the gaps above and below the switch. I then pulled off the factory rocker switch and installed my spade connectors.

In the next few weeks I will be installing a master keyed switch and required high amp relays in the kitchen to kill power to the slide, awning, and power bunks. That will eleminate the need for this setup, but I though I'd share anyway.
