This switch is a really easy install. I used stainless steel pan head screws, washers and nuts. I was overly generous with the silicone sealant.

adding antifreeze intake valve...

thanks,

My 195bh is a wildwood vs a cruise lite, but if anyone's interested I added a DIY antifreeze intake between the fresh water tank and pump. I made the new intake hose long enough I can feed it out the exterior hole for the electric cord so if we run out of fresh water in the tank, I could use an exterior water container.

Welcome to this form. Your EVO 195BH is almost the same as the Salem Cruise Lite 195BH except for some mostly cosmetic changes. I assume you saw rtidwell's comment #179 with photos in this thread on his under bed slider door mod. Great info there. I have not done mine but plan to do this mod as well.

Could you be more specific on the details your looking for and possibly rtidwell or someone can chime in.

Cruise Lite 195BH Owners Thread

Added a cargo net in each bunk for the kids. These were originally in the back of a minivan we got rid of but I kept for this purpose.
A couple of command hooks and these make a great place for their books and small toysClick image for larger version

Doesn't seem like anyone has done this. You may have already searched FR Forums. There are several FR threads on rooftop ladders, but nothing on the 195BH.

I don't think the rear structure will support a rooftop ladder. I did find in the link below at Comment #11, FR's Customer Service phone number and a POC name that may be worth a call.

Ladder to the roof

Let us know when you find an answer.

Happy camping.
