Good looking rig by the way. Here's a picture of ours and a few add on things I've done in the last few days. Haven't camped in it yet. It usually takes me a few weeks to do a real Post delivery inspection, get one modified, added on, loaded up, etc etc. Hopefully by next week we'll be good to go.

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

Nice unit and storage you have there! Looks like you could play football in there.

I saw that vacuum in the bay there… is that factory or an add on? Would love to see your mods in greater detail.

I noticed Florien on your profile… my wife is from Natchitoches, we both went to school at Northwestern, as all of our four kids did.

Hey richard75w, I wouldn't say football, but not far from it. I used to have a few pictures in my album but they're no longer there. The part your looking at is just for the truck and fifth wheel. 30 amp / 50 amp hook ups, water, sewer etc. Total shop is around 6000 square feet though, complete with guest room with full bath, welding shop, wood shop, trailer bays etc. So, it's a dream shop when it comes to backing an RV in there. You're good to go for any modification from welding a hitch on, building cabinets or whatever you can think of.
The vacuum was an option from CC. Same vacuum you can get at just about any camping place, or camping world. I wish it had the vacuum dust pan, so I'll probably add that to it later. This unit is no Rainbow Vac, but it's ok for quick clean ups. In the picture showing the vacuum, I just relocated it towards the outer wall (left in picture), neatened some of the wires, added the shut off valves which feed the rear of the fw, and of course installed the Progressive Dynamics 9200 converter with the charge wizard. It's apples to oranges in the converter world. I guess you could say it's more friendly to your batteries. On the Progressive Industries EMS-HW50C, I just love those. It's a hard wired surge protector. It gives me more peace of mind as if campground voltage gets too low, it shuts off, too high it shuts off, and if it surges, your covered. Also has a remote display that I mounted in the hallway. It cycles through a few read outs (Line 1 voltage, amps drawn on line 1, line 2 voltage, amps drawn on line 2, frequency, then error code if there is one. If nothing else, it's a cool toy. On the access panel, it's just a have to have. When I do my own inspection when I get them home, I take apart as much as I can to access everything. If a water line is going to leak, I want to know it quick, and the only way to check some things is make an access hole to them. We've done this on every RV we've had. The dealer / factory will obviously not catch all of them if there are any.
As for Natchitoches, that's my home town, however I only went 1 year to Northwestern and then offshore until present.
Feel free to PM me if you need any details on mods. There are more than I listed, those are just the majors.

Well, after a phone conversation with Cedar Creek and a few brain farts, I found the anti-siphon valve for the rear black flush. I couldn't find it before as it didn't look like what I was used to seeing. It is a tiny gray inline piece, just behind the panel where all the inlets are. That one works fine. Now on the one for the front black tank, I've already ditched it. As in the past, this one put water under my bathroom sink on the first try. So, I didn't even try to fix it. Just cut the system completely out and I'll use the back flow preventer on the inlet. I hate those cheap plastic valves they put in. I've only had one NOT leak. Either way, problem solved.
