Sid, I am blown away.
How cool is that!

You of course are going to post more than just a "finished" photo right?
I, for one, would like to know the grizzly details like who ya bought em from; what they cost; and if you had any problems installing them.

I have also added 2 to each door. Bought 18 on ebay a couple of yrs ago for $20. Main thing is the door anchors must be put on a larger plate (Alum) and riveted to the door as they are only vinyl & foam and the frame anchor should also be reinforced to the wall to eliminate flexing of the frame.

OK, anyone wanting to catch me in a mistake, point them to this thread too.

Disregard my posts regarding moving this one as I found FireInstructor's post further down.
VERY embarrassed.

Well this project has been going on for a couple of weeks now. I want my RV to be seen. It just blows my mind that all the manufactures use the same light, tail & turn, and clearance on all RV’s. When I have to get on the brakes I want the guy/gal behind me to know I’m on the binders, so.

I added red LED’s to the existing rear lights for stop and turn. I also put a nice polished piece of stainless behind the bulbs. In addition I also added two round four inch LED’s to each side below the bumper. So now I have three stop, turn, and tail on each side. Then the wheels really started to turn.

I ciphered out how and tested it and it does work, when the running lights are on, and the left or right turn signal is on, the lower clearance lights on that side will flash opposite of the turn signal. Now if the brake lights are on, brakes applied, the clearance lights will not flash until the brakes are released.

On my 831RKBSS it was easy to find all the connections inside for the lower clearance lights. I’m running a fused hot wire to each of the six lights. The wires will run under the floor between the bottom cover and the relays and fuses will be located under the lower drawer in the kitchen. This will make access easy with the slide in or out.

So if you see some guy flashing, it is me, er, ah us. And Lu, when she found out I had over $250 in this little adventure; I just received another “Oh Brother”.

Jonny, which solar kit did you order?

I got paid this weekend, sat down paid the mortgage and all the other bills and had just enough left over to order two solar panels. Everbright was supposed to have free shipping, but the online cart couldn't calculate it.

I guess I'll call on Monday and see if I really do have enough money to order the panels or if I need to keep shopping.

Due to wife's complaining, made one step into two (cut-out on bottom is for the carpet when the slide is in). Two screws hold it in place.

Since finally checked into how to add pictures (thanks herk) added one of clips installed to hold table in place when traveling Worked o. k. so far.

Third picture is counter extension (may need to refinish top, although not as bad as it looks in the picture). Tried to use the t. v. shelf from the bed room or the grill shelf, but they were too narrow for the brackets to clear the drawers. Wayne
