Yep, the only grease she had to worry about was what was on the pin already.

You’ve gotta look nice when you’re on the job! I actually didn’t expect her to come out, but she did on her own and started asking what she could do.

I'll get a picture of them, and the switch I used tomorrow and post here. The light kit was bought at my local Walmart. The switch for them was bought at a local electronics/wiring shop. All wired in to the 12 volt RV system.

Finally consistently warm enough to hook up some water and check things out.

Tightened up a bunch of screws that keep coming loose (gonna hafta put some anchors in).

Installed 27” Tv and bracket.

3”memory foam mattress toppers on all beds.

Waiting on my Oxygenics Fury Pro shower head to be delivered.

Wondering how complicated it would be to put a skylight above the shower.

13 days to shakedown.

Just use this:
Low Clearance POI - GPS Data

And find a nearby one to cut that hole open for you.

As an alternative, I used one with a tiny built in motion sensor in my pantry and it's been working great. The reason I went with the motion sensor one is because when it's really hot in the summer, I like to keep the pantry door cracked open an inch or two because it can get hot in there with sun shining on the outside wall. By leaving the door open a little, it gets some air circulation from the rest of the camper with the AC on.

I wouldn't care about the heat in the pantry if I used it for something other than food, but I found the food stays much cooler with the door open slightly.

I used this one from Amazon:

The pantry is the small area on the left front side, used for dishes, plastic wear, and items like that. We use the upper front bulkhead area for food related items.

New switch and the lights.



Switch mounted it the top corner of the pantry. One for each door where the light is needed.



Here is a link to a light kit very similar to what I used.

Yeah- my buddy tried using it on his Ram a couple of years back and couldn't get it load/import. He's a programmer by trade, even.

My furnace cold air intake is on the right side in the bedroom and only had a grill no filter. I took some scrap sheet metal and made two "Z" fittings (black parts) to hold a 16X16 filter in place. now I have a filter to keep the dog hair and such out of the furnace.

SeaDog, I like what you did for a filter. When we did our pdi on our 2504s we were told NOT to use any kind if filter when we were shown the furnace intake.I have always wondered why they were so insistent about that. Any ideas? Jay

Reduces airflow through furnace, could lead to overheating/fire.

On the sticks and bricks my HVAC guy said the hepa filters were burning out fans and compressors. Sure it's similar for the RV furnace as I doubt they account for any filter. Cost me a new compressor after 7yrs....

This true, if a unit starts to cycle it's shutting down on high limit, so I suggest to keep an ear out for that. When I bought my unit in 2012 they didn't even have a return in the unit, drew everything from the belly only, I called Suburban, they made them put one in, but then they had to build around it so it wouldnt pull from the underbelly at all. Just a bad design FR wasn't happy with me, then they started to put grills in the steps, I doubt if the new units are enclosed, people should check. There is still no way you can put a filter in.

I went to check on it in storage. Everything seemed to be in good shape. I dumped and refilled the Dri-Z-Air crystals to reduce moisture inside and refreshed the Essential Oil of Peppermint on cotton balls in ceramic mugs to repel mice if they happen to get in. The camping season won’t start for us until mid-May.

I was only thinking about using one of those blue (or green) coarse filters that you can almost see through. Just enough to stop a little dust. Usually cost about $.89. On my unit the furnace is below the kitchen sink mounted to the floor. To put a filter on the inside would be pretty tough to do. Jay
