What is your next Trilogy Project?

Next on my todo list is to replace some of the factory plumbing. I will change out the city water plumbing from the entry all the way to the water manifold. I will probably go with 3/4 ID or at the very least 1/2 ID. The manifold is a great addition to any RV, but it also needs a better supply line.

I know, I know.. the RV parks don't always have great pressure or supply lines that can provide 3/4 ID throughput. That's ok, we'll live with it.

I need to do more reading on the physics aspect

John

Now that we have insulated the interior with Reflectix, painted the skylight a rubber friendly reflective paint and re-caulked the roof, of concern now are the Threads related to failed suspension welds, etc. It is time to inspect and re-paint all exposed and/or rusting metal underneath.

I'm in the middle of a project now. I'm working on the kitchen trash can slide out. Ours was a very flimsy design. I noticed some of the last Trilogy's built had a much better design with 4 roller bearing guides - 2 on each side. That's how I'm making ours.

Thumper, since you're mentioning the garbage bin slide out, I was contemplating of replacing it with a longer one and build a holder for garbage bags and other little things in the back, there is so much wasted space.

Since we bought our 36RL in May, I've added lots of insulation, more shelves in cabinets, removed all 3 ac units and put in a good seal to prevent return air from mixing with the cold air, replaced the ac and furnace vents with adjustable vents, replaced the factory water filter, replaced the flimsy garbage can pullout with a much sturdier design, built and installed tracks to go at the bottom of the closet doors in the bedroom, installed metal "J" locks to hold closet doors open when traveling, added a clothes rod to the w/d closet in the hall, insulated and closed up the skylight in the shower, replaced the shower head with an Oxygenics and installed a piece of white Coroplast just above the top of the shower on one side to prevent water from splashing on the wood paneling. I think my next project is a 3 week trip in November.

After all those mods, I agree you do need a vacation.

Thumper, can you post pictures of the changes to the air conditioner and seals?

John, unfortunately I did not take pictures. All you need to do is remove the cover on top of the ac unit-4 bolts. Then remove the 4 long bolts that hold the ac unit onto the roof. Just pick the ac unit up enough to set it off to the side. You can see there is sort of a divider between the front and back of the opening in the roof. I just used the aluminum foil tape to seal everything up real good so the return air does not mix with the cold air.
