Pimp my 26rr

I'm actually going to make a removable back for the couch so when it's nice weather I can have ramp down and screens down and be able t lean back without falling out the back. I will upload pics when I get it done. I plan to do that this weekend.

Just for more details when I did the couch mod I unscrewed the two 2x6s from wall and cut to width of couch. This made it so you don't have boards sticking out on wall makes cleaner look. I also put heavier hinges on since the old ones were bending. Also put a support board under for more support.

yea i did that too, that was just the excess of the cover before we wrapped and cut the excess off. i am interested in how you plan on adding a back for the summer.i thought a padded angled piece acrossmthe door opening but that seems kinda bulky

Decided to use space between couches and ramp door for storage instead of moving. Tie downs, broom etc. Perfect space for infared heater between left couch and fender well.
Reconfigured straps on both sides to hold back above couch and added strap on bottom of left couch to hold chairs, table etc. Also built 8" x 8" x 5' drawer for under left couch for jacks, wrenches etc.
Probably will leave left couch up all the time but after living in all winter will have a better idea what works.
I am adding a ramp to the gate today. I put a 1/2 " plywood ramp on 4' by 18" with a piano hinge which was to weak and to short so am working on Rev 2. 3/4 " plywood 24" wide by 4' with two hinges to allow a droop of 4-6" on the extension. Then have to find two 6 " rubber bumpers for the outside of door to replace the short ones.
Just sold my winter tires and put on road tires so I guess I am committed to warm country for the winter.

Radio amp?

When you guys mention the radio amp, what are referring to. I know what an amp is but I do not see one or a button for one. I have a 2016 26RR.

Thanks - Patrick

Does the pvc give enough support? I would think it would flex too much when you leaned back

Patrick,
If you look at the 12v outlet in the ceiling near the Entertainment cupboard, you will find a very small push button on that plate. It is very small. Press it upwards and a green led should come on. That's the amp for the TV signal etc. why it is so small and so obscure is known only to some designer who never used it in real life. If it's not on you get nothing.
Hope that is what you needed to help out.
Ron.

Yes it does. I'm 220lbs and does well. It has worked well. I used pic over wood for weight. Very minimal flex.

Makes it really nice. The screws and pvc glue on the elbows and caps make it very sturdy. The uprights when pushed in don't move.
