so I have owned my trailer 2 months now, its been at the dealer for 90% of the time, making repairs and waiting on parts and such
I got it back today!
i planned on installing the lift kit, my LED porch light, the new fan controls, and a voltmeter/ usb charging station
well I got the trailer all jacked up, took the tires off, dropped the axle and found out Forest River sent me the Alco spacer kit, not the dexter kit.
The Alco is about 2 inches short, and the holes for the mounting are 1 inch too narrow..... called FR and vented, new kit is on the way hopefully it will be here next week
so put the axle back on, put the wheels on and on to the inside stuff!
first I have a new Fantasitc fan control, the stock one was 3 speed, thats it.... the new one is 3 speed, forward/ reverse switch, t-stat switch, and then I added an extra switch by the crank...
Then is was time to cover up the wire....
and then install the out door unit, its small, only 10 inches, but its got 24 LED's and puts out 350+ lumens
and now to test the switch
with it this low on the roof, the Bag awning clears it when its rolled up, so it can be used with the awing open or closed.
then on the inside, next to the stereo i installed one of these
I put it on a switch, and wired it into the radio power wire as its always hot for the radio to store station memory.
we replaced the fuse for the radio and went up by 5 amps as that's the max draw of the usb ports.
now with the roof down I can see the battery voltage, make sure that my TV is charging the house battery and know that i am good to go!
more mods to come as money/weather allows
no rain today but it was 96 with a heat index of 113, glad i was working on the 12 v as I could pull fuses and work in ac around 78 vs the out door heat
