ID:	59632yes I have I made the cabinet with a hinge so it would fold flat and the futon folds flat also. I made the base of the futon with heavy duty draw slides so when the futon is made into a couch it fits closer to the wall and when we need it as a bed you pull the handle at the bottom and it moves away from the wall. I have the doors to put on the face of the cabinet and build the top bunk.

The AC won't know the difference as long as the thermostat tells it to run. 22 amps seems a little high from my experience. Might I ask how you were measuring the amp draw.

And now it is cooling better than expected. Is it now parked in the shade so the AC doesn't have to work as hard? Was it in the open sun before?

Now about the tree limb, if it is over the street and is in the right-of-way, I wouldn't ask, I'd cut it myself. Or at least get the city/county to do it.
I still think it pulls more than it should, but the dealership said it was within specs. I was measuring the amp draw with my PI surge protector.

The first time I was in here complaining about it was day one of a trip, and that first day it was having a heck of time cooling the interior. The next two days were comfortable.

And, I fixed the @!#$@#$ leak where I was venting a lot of air outside.

I'm going to insulate the unit as some of the guys have done to see if that helps as well.

I'm using the PI. It was a hot day, I have two fridges going, plus the AC, plus the ceiling fan.

The exterior fridge needs an on/off switch - that's a project for another day.

Not much going on just wish we were at the rally. I weighed the truck with DW, 2 dogs, a rabbit and a full tank of fuel a couple of weeks ago. The bed of the truck has the hitch and a generator loaded in it ready to camp. Today with nothing better to do I hooked up the RV and headed for the scales. No food, no clothes and no water. We generally travel with 1/3 tank of water, RV not ready to camp. Here are the results.

I figure maybe another 500# for food, clothes and water but it will be weighed again when ready to camp. I was surprised at the pin weight, I would have guessed it to weigh more.

Now lets hear from the weight police

New carpet. New drawer slides for sofa. New screen in bottom of door. Outside molding repaired. New matching legs on sofa. That's what forest river Tech's did for free.

We have trouble hearing our TV with our ac running, so I now have our TV hooked up to radio aux. so now we have the volume of TV plus the volume of radio.

I installed a Fabulous Products replacement kitchen fan. I has a pancake motor and squire cage fan with 3 speeds and LED lights. Makes hardly any noise compared to the little plastic bladed monster.
