I added this a while ago but thought I'd share since I took some pictures today.

I'm not a fan of phones and laptops sitting here-there-and-everywhere for storage and/or charging, so I put up a couple of magazine racks and a small "mail holder" on the back of the dinette seat. The phones fit nicely in the mail holder; and, of course, the magazine racks are for the laptops.

There's an outlet in the "feet area" of the dinette, so I used the electrical from that to set up a permanent power strip at the base of the charging station. The power strip has a couple of USB slots, as well.

Keeps my Type A head a little happier...

Well today I did nothing, but yesterday I opened up a place to store my lawn chairs under the jack knife couch. Since I have had the camper I changed all of the interior bulbs with LED's, installed led strips on the wall under the awning (one white one RGB) with RF remote controls. Installed Digital battery monitors, an AC power monitor / protector, I built wind / sun awnings for the windows that let water in. I put plexi-glass panels on the screen door for 3 season use, Installed power shut offs for the water pump and hot water heater (to prevent DW from turning them on when winterized) Hung a TV, I put in a wall switch in the bathroom, and made the one in the vanity control the vanity light, I installed pull out drawers in one of the closets, as well as LED lighting in cabinets. (still in process, ran out of LED pucks) I put in a 120 volt outlet in the pass through. Plans are for an outdoor shower, A better shower head in the tub, Fantastic fans, Fantastic stove vent, a full solar / inverter system and under floor insulation.

Got three of my home made ware glides installed but still have the screeching squeak. The ware glides are 3/8" thick, the slide does not seal when closed. Tried adjusting the slide to seal but when adjusted to the end limits there is still about four inches at the bottom that is not sealed and the top and about 7/8 of the sides are tightly sealed. Also has the fender well trim and graphics no longer line up. I removed the home made slide glides and readjusted slide back to factory location. Back to square one.

Glen is correct they forgot to put the (Poly wear blocks) on your unit! No the stripes will NOT line up because they did NOT have the (Wear blocks) in place when they applied the Outside Decals! It also sounds like the (Bell adjustment )is Way Off! And you need to put the proper (Wear Blocks) on! Youroo!!

Sent an e-mail last week to FR Kevin Myers asking for the proper wear blocks. It's only been a few days, maybe I'll hear something soon. Till then I'll deal with the squeal I guess.

After putting on the Blocks,the adjustment under the O/s slide wall will need set agin,as well as the Bell adjustment for (In/Out). With this type of slide you will notice a (Considerable Tip) when going (Over) the blocks, (In and Out) this is Normal! If all else fails here is your Option! Youroo!!
