The fans are two different brands, only because I had them lying around. The fan that works best is a Maradyne M083. They are tied to a relay with the coil actuating from the compressor feed (blue wire). Whenever the compressor is on, these fans are on. I did not switch them using temperature. The only conceivable issue (one that doesn't concern me as many cars do this same thing) might be when running the defroster in cold weather. I will probably revisit my fan install at some point and add a third fan, and replace the odd brand fan with a maradyne. https://m.summitracing.com/parts/mar-m083k

Shade extension on order - I think that's it for now haha - oh we also added a screen door bar as I've pulled the plastic thing several times trying to catch the door. And we've added several flamingos and a lighted palm tree to the stock of needed items. and a bike rack to the rear ladder. It's too many photos to post all of it Attachment 117800Attachment 117801Attachment 117803Attachment 117804but if anyone wants to see just ask! We've only had it a little over a month hahaha ...... But using a lot of the ideas we read on here!! And we are loving it so far


Would you mind taking a picture of where you added the 20 foot hose for propane .. I'd like to see how you split it!

What's an eyebrow?

We bought those exact same shelves and cannot get them to stick for the life of us. What brand of tape did you use? We've tried mounting tape, 3M products, and even tried screwing them in under the mirror in the living room... nothing has worked!

Best (and most needed) was the grill insert.

We bought those exact same spice racks for the medicine cabinet. We were unable to figure out how to get the second free floating shelf to fit perfectly in with the two multi-tiered shelves already installed. How'd you manage?! We wound up placing it above the freezer to use as a spice rack.

Beautiful shelf! Did you make that, or buy it? If purchased, from where?

Thanks!

Here's a couple of DIY mods I recently completed. The idea for the Quick Disconnect on the water inputs was from an earlier post on this Forum. I used 3/4" chair tips to cover the open end of the QD. The padded headboard inserts were the result of getting tired of knocking my hands/knuckles on the sharp edges of the wood headboard while I slept. I used a multimedia (DVD/CD) rack for the pantry in the broom/coat storage area by the front door. The headboard inserts and the pantry shelves are secured using Velcro (love Velcro and Command Strips).

You know that random cushion that's hanging around. The one that turns the dining room table for a bed? That's what we use for the headboard cushion.. we just lay it up ther when we aren't using it

That works too. I spent less than $15 and it makes it feel more like home for the DW (i.e. Happy Camper).

What media tower did you buy? That looks fantastic in the pantry closet! We are having an awfully hard time finding bins that fit properly so I absolutely love your use of a CD/DVD tower. And very nice job on the headboard as well.

Thanks. Here's the link to what we purchased for the pantry.

How did you fasten the cd tower in the closet.
I plan to order one?

I used a 6 inch strip of 2 inch adhesive backed Velcro on the back near the top.
