Angle supports added from what was laying around - not sure needed.
Slid paneling under framing on floor prior to sawing the floor framing out.

I have a 2015 FR3 30DS and want to change from 30 amp to 50 amp and add an Atwood 18k BTU that FR says is on the unit (which was not on the unit, only a Dometic 15k BTU). I already used the roof holes for 3 Maxx Fan Remote fans so I will have to sacrifice the BR Maxx Air fan for another A/C. How did you change from 30 to 50 amps. I always had 50 amps on my larger units but we went down in size and do not want to go down in amps. Any pics or diagrams available. Thanks.

I believe most just run a 20 amp extension cord to just that AC unit. Then when camping, you can use the 30 amp and 20 amp that most campgrounds offer. Or use a dog bone like this: http://www.amazon.com/Conntek-Adatpe.../dp/B002MGSNNQ.

shelves

your shelves all look great. You said you got the materials at Lowes, but what did you use to mount the shelves inside each space? Thanks

Thank you for the kind words. I used the remnant material from the shelves to cut custom mounting brackets, and then screwed them to the inside of the cabinet. I then wood screwed the shelves to the mounting brackets. Here are a couple of photos to illustrate what I did.

Thanks for your compliment on the shelves. I am actually camping right now and am away from my records. When I return home next week I will find that info and send it to you. I can tell you that I used metal strips that are sometimes called shelf standards. They are used with matching adjustable metal clips that lock into the standards. I found a company on the internet that has a wide assortment in various lengths and colors with matching screws. Their product is also thinner than what you buy locally and look really nice. I will let you know the name of the company.

Shelf Standards

The name of the company that carried the shelf standards was Woodworker's Supply. (Catalog No. 895-859). You will also see matching shelf clips and matching screws on their website. Hope this helps.

Thanks to all for your assistance in adding shelves in the FR3. With your guidance and photos I was able to convert the coat closet into a pantry and add a shelf in the bathroom. I live in a small town so my local Lowes did not have the premade shelves in the color that matched, so I had to get raw wood and stain, but, I think it still came out great. See photos.
