Several years ago we pulled a 30' fiver to Key Largo for a two week diving trip.
1400 miles each way in two days and about 12.5hrs each day.

The only stops were bathroom / refueling that were tag teamed by DW and myself.
We enjoyed that trip very much, but I wouldn't want to do it again in that length of time. Two days of 12+ hrs towing was too much.

Not so much a camper improvement, but I did finally finish a pad to park my PuP on.

I used the porch light wiring. I traced it back to my main wiring harness at the entrance to my coach. It was a light green and white. There was a red+ and white- wire as well(slide power). I believe the wire gauge I chose was 16. I used inline splice and this wire is always hot. No need to have lights on for the fan to operate. Get a test light and check a close by wire. Hopefully really close because there sure isn't a whole lot of room to play with in an RV ceiling. Check if the wire is hot with no lights on first.

Looks good, does it clear the slide or do you have to take it down?
Is it blocking cabinet doors?

Put on three vent covers ,still got one to go for tomorrow and two vents that we aren't covering. Still can't figure out why this thing needs 6 roof vents.

6 roof vents is a lot for sure!
Ours has two A/C's plus three vents so 5 total, and I thought that was a lot.
What kind of rig is it?
