This camper has a 18cu ft frig with inverter. How many batteries should be in camper and what volt? Also I want to put vent covers over the vents, should I get Tom Johnson to put them on for me or is it something I should be able to do myself.

We do not have the house style refrigerator with inverter. We have a RV refrigerator that works on electric and/or propane. An RV refrigerator was one of our must haves because we are not always hooked up to electricity. If I had a residential refrigerator, I would add a couple of large solar panels and high capacity batteries to ensure that the refrigerator always had power. As far as the vent covers, the kitchen vent will close if it rains - it has a rain sensor - if rain is the reason you want a vent cover, you may not need one over the kitchen vent. Tom Johnson charges $112.00 per hour. If it is something you are comfortable doing, you can save yourself some money by doing it yourself. If you don't want to be climbing up to and walking around on the roof or are not sure about installing it yourself, let TJ do it.

Spock123, we have the 20 cubic foot in our 38rd. The factory states there should be 4 - 6 volt batteries which gives about 12 hours operation. We have just tried using at home since we have only had the coach for 3 weeks. The only comment is that the 4 batteries leave little room in the battery compartment. Going to be a little hard to check fluid levels but will need a mechanic mirror to see the side batteries since they are hard to see directly. Hope this helps. We are glad to have an all electric refrigerator so that we don't have to turn off when fueling.

Rain sensors will not be effective when cooking as range and convection are NOT vented to outdoors. That is the PRIMARY reason for using vent covers. Try cooking something with the "rain sensored" vent in the closed position.
Let me know how that screaming alarm works for you as the kitchen fills with smoke. Been there, done that. Not good, bad, very bad!

Do you know how deep where the couch is at. I may take the couch out. There is only two of us, I have a big recliner that I would like to put somewhere.

You know I have never turned off my frig, it stays on all the time, even at my house. Camper stays plugged in all the time. In winter the heat stays on in camper. But going down the road and in tunnels frig stays on.

I have done that too, that's why the vent covers are on my 30RL. But this time I got another color, champagne, looks great, better than black.

I was looking at the tv and I was wondering where the DVD player went and also do you have a satellite receiver and is there space for it? DW can't go anywhere without Direct tv, DW has to be happy.

Can anyone tell me that has the
32rl how wide is the drawers beside the TV. The drawers between the stove and the TV. I have to find somewhere to put my Direct TV receiver, plus my Sony blue-ray 3d player. I may could take the front off the top drawer and replace it with glass or plexiglass. I have to find somewhere to put the Direct TV receiver in at. It does not look like there is anywhere to put the receiver at on top or under the TV so I just thought I could put it in a drawer next to the TV, the top drawer.
