I like this idea better than mine...........nothing to hide away like the bungee.

The step itself I had laying around. New ones can be bought at Overtons. Just look up "folding step". I used "L" brackets and a flat piece of steel I had laying around to mount it. Amazon may have it too. Sorry I am not good enough to post a link. Jay

Well.....

Packed the TV with firewood and the blue transfer tank. Then packed the fridge, hooked the ole girl to the Chevy in anticipation of heading out to the western mountains of Maine for a few days. Really hoping this is not the last trip of the season, however it is winding down quickly.

Oh and this too

Took one of our favorite sunset pictures and had it printed on canvas. Plan on hanging that while we are at the CG. DW decides wear it goes....thinking that might occupy several hours

I mounted the controllers to the wall and the buss to the bottom (Last two pictures), then tightened all the connections. There was even a stripped wire attached to one of the controllers that could have easily shorted out something. Everything works, so I just taped it off...

The wiring still looks like a rats nest, but at least I feel better knowing the terminals won't be bouncing on one another.



Yeah where was this MHs QC department? Out to lunch this day for sure, and they want to say they build quality products, while industry really needs a lesson in QC for sure.

Did the magical "pimp my AC" thing. Turned out nice. Added a door to the one side so it can be opened to read the schematic. I will let you know next hot day if it helped.
