Here are the pics for the rest of the roof mods that I did if anyone is interested. Thought I would take photos of every step of the installation of the MaxAir II vents in case someone wanted to know how to install them. There is also a pic of the Winegard Wingman as well (just no install pics, but it is extremely simple.)

I got a few mods done today too. I put MaxxAir Fanmate covers on both bath fans, wired the furnace blower to a rocker switch to allow me to run just the blower without the furnace igniting, and extended the gas line to the rear and added 2 more propane quick connects. I also managed to get a lot of moving in done. I'll have to post pics later.

Just out of curiosity, why change the location of the quick connect and add more?

Has anyone tackled, or have any ideas what they are going to do about the TV in storage area?

Got the one for the master at WM. Used it in my last 5vr and it worked great. When I traded it I removed the mount to use with the new one.

Here is the link:

Small Tilting TV Mount for 13" - 26" TVs: TV & Video : Walmart.com

For the one in the bunkhouse, I did order from Amazon. I read a lot of reviews and wound up with this one.

Amazon.com: Cheetah Mounts ALAMB Articulating Arm TV Wall Mount Bracket for VESA 100 12-24" LCD LED Flat Screen Monitors Display/TVs up to 40lbs Includes Free 10' HDMI Cable and 6" Bubble Level: Electronics

I didn't change the location, I added more pipe from that location and extended it to the rear of the outside kitchen slide. This will allow me to use the stove and a grill at the same time. I also added the 3rd one in case we have dinner in the smoker and want to use the other things to prepare lunch.

Very nice. I like the idea. Been running my WeberQ off of the 1lb. tanks. Been contemplating pulling the regulator off and running through RV system. If I do this will be a mod I have to consider.

I think that's next on my list......I have the idea and some of the parts, just finalizing my approach. The height of my 32" TV is going to not allow it to be as simple as I originally imagined. Here's the pics of the rest of what I did yesterday.

The furnace blower mod is actually really simple. In my last unit, we used it with electric heaters and also when running the AC. It seemed to keep the temperature more even throughout the camper. You start by turning off the propane, and since I was going to be adding to the gas piping, I also disconnected both tanks. I then removed the furnace fuse at the distribution panel. Once you remove the outside access cover, there's 1 screw centered vertically on the left, that you remove and disconnect the gas line. The furnace should then be able to pull out. I only needed to pull it out as far as the pics show. There's 2 screws (they're already removed in my pics) holding the metal bracket that the circuit board is on, that you remove, and then you can pull the board and bracket out. You have to remove the harness I'm pointing to in the pic, to be able to get the board out where you can work on it. Then it's just a matter of wiring in the 2 conductor cable to your switch. I routed mine thru the basement to where the subwoofer is. I mouted the switch on the subwoofer grille, but I left enough cable to eventually put it over where all the other controls are, just inside the door. I used an illuminated switch so that I can see it through the grill, and just tapped the (-) for the switch off of the propane/CO detector. You have to be careful to not knick any wires when sliding the furnace in/out but it's easy enough to avoid doing so.
