Trying to sleep in, in the morning is tough with that bright light shining down on you (especially for the guy in the rear top bunk, looking right up at the sky light).
Has anyone done anything to black these out? How about *insulate* them? I would imagine that with just that plastic in between the interior and the outside world, that is a definite area where heat comes and goes when you wouldn't want it to.
5. This one is a bit tougher as I don't have a pic, and it probably needs someone who has the exact same WA2916 to know? On the left side of the TH, where the drain is, I have the black tank valve directly behind the hookup. Then on each side there looks to be a 2" pipe each with a valve on it. Do I really have 2 separate gray tanks? I would have figured it would be 1, but does the 160 gallon upgrade on the Stealth rather than just a larger single gray tank, split to two tanks?
Hey man...i just thought of something cheap to tint those awfully bright vent covers as well as the door window which pissed me off the whole trip last time cause I woke up to the bright light shining in on me through it.
Plasti-dip! I think they have a "tint" color that is like a translucent black to use for the door windows, and you can probably just black out the vent covers. And if you dont end up liking it, peel it off! for $5 a can i think im going to try it.
I was looking at covers for the door windows but all I could find was a cover that was made of the foil material like the front window shades you put in your car. I think it had suction cups to stick them on but may not really work seeing as the glass isnt smooth its got the bumpy texture to it. And the only things i could find for the vents were big black covers that prevent rain from getting in during bad weather but still allows you to open the vent to get fresh air...
I know plasti-dip may sound kind of hokey but if you mask it nicely and do a couple of light coats it can look pretty nice.
As far as the double gray tank valves, yes there are two gray tanks. Someone mentioned above that the front bathroom probably emptied into one tank and the kitchen probably emptied into another. Im not 100% sure but for some reason my mind thought the shower emptied into one (seeing as a shower uses a lot of water) and that the two sinks emptied into the other. Im going to try and get under my rig this weekend and figure some other things out so ill try and remember to verify all this stuff too!
