Latest Modifications - 35QB4 - WH Switch, Air Deflector
Did a few more modifications today I thought I'd share here since it's Cedar Creek / Silverback specific. These mods are all over this forum, at least one of them, but figured I'd post my version.
1) Water heater electric switch. Everybody knows about the typical Suburban electric switch located on the outside. The receptacle for the electric part is located behind the water heater. All I did was replace the receptacle and install a switch in the hallway that turns it on or off. The switch on the water heater itself stays in the "On" position.
2) AC deflector, or "tent" as it's called by the creator. I robbed this from the Heartland forum. There were several people there complaining of the cooling efficiency of the roof units in the summer, plus lack of air flow. The problem may be brand specific, but figured I'd try it as most RV's have the ducts tied to the AC unit the same way. One problem was how the air discharge is configured in relation to the duct tie ins creating turbulence before the air hits the ducts. This guy made a deflector that directs the air straight from the blower to the ducts. You lose the effectiveness of the quick cool vent, but you increase the quality of air flow to the ducts. I did this on the front and rear AC, and it does make a difference.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.
