True!
It usually takes ms amy 8 mo. To decide on an expense like this.
Last two units took her almost a year.
She sure fooled me, I figured I'd about have that second a/c worn out by time she got her thoughts rounded up.

Well congrats to you both! I've got the bug myself but Im sitting tight for the moment. It's like a disease to keep modding, trading, upgrading, tinkering etc...

Looks just like where I installed mine. Thankfully I had enough cable slack (after freeing the cable from some clamps) to make all the connections with it outside of that area.

I then used Velcro strips to "fix" the unit to the floor in there, and made a small hole beside the panel to run the cable to the remote display (which is mounted directly in front of said hole with industrial strength Velcro strips)

Just realized that I never actually posted pics of the install, or with the display mounted. D'oh!

Got the output side wired, tomorrow I will wire the input side and then hopefully get the whole thing in the hole and clear of all the wire mess and mount the monitor just to the left of the converter unless I can feed the wires up to the blank area above the refrigerator.

Sure does. I think it'll hold out, though.

Dropped off at dealer for repairs:
1. Cabinet trim finish bubbling due to water leak at water connection
2. Tighten water connection
3. Decal on exterior is bubbling
4. Bedroom window condensation builds up, does not drain.

They can keep it until next year as I'm in no rush-it's getting too cold up here in NY.

Completely emptyed it out and made abig "pile" of stuff" down at the shop.Dumped and drained it. Now I have two choices. 1) find a 7 yr old kid thats small enough to crawl thru the basement and around the sewer drops to turn the water heater vales to bypass,or.2) saw a hole thru the interior wall with a sawsall,then just reach thru and do it myself.

Hole saw hole would be prettier.

Lol and if it does hopefully you didn't use a 1/2" drill with no variable speed!

Dropped my Reese hitch by one notch (1.3") yesterday
I had over 8" clearance between the bed rails and the fifth wheel overhang, so still nearly 7" clearance in theory, and hoping it'll improve the ride a little.
I'll see how it handles on our short (1hr local drive) camping trip over this weekend

Picked up the replacement dinette table from the dealership last weekend.
They'd ordered the entire table, even tho it was only the folding legs that needed replacing, but they'd shipped it in two boxes, with no mounting hardware, so we just put the new legs on the old table top. (They did also include new metal brackets to raise the table height, rather than the wooden shims that are on the existing top, but switching those out was gonna be a waste of time, so we didn't bother)


Also ordered the Camco bug screen for the fridge vent (from Amazon). I'll measure up the furnace vent since thinking of using a rectangular cover, rather than the little round ones
