That looks great, but Iíll have to get you a real beer. Nobody drinks bud light anymore, especially with good food.

Looks good, man after my heart Steak and a beer , any beer will do just not an IPA, use to like them but now just to heavy. Is that a inogen oxy. Maker I see, do you like it? Is it everything they say it is. I sure hope so for anyone needing it. What a break through that has been...enjoy your dinner and sunset..

Gained a 1/2 foot of room in the under bed storage by carving down some generously sprayed factory foam, moving the dinky supports and ďwallĒ, while making the wall straight (was completely skewed in two directions).

Also moved the water pump about a foot to gain some extra space for future tool storage box in that area.

Filled all empty screw holes with clear silicon, after doing the above moves.

I did the same with those walls, looked like they were installed by a 7 year old!
Was the foam removed the stuff around the through the floor piping?
Which model pup?
I'll have to look at the water pump location in mine and how much give to the piping.

I have a 2017 Wolfpup 16BHS
The foam I cut back is against the wall in the photo. The whole is just peaking at that edge. I cut some more foam around all the edges. It now looks more like a square pile of foam. I have no doubt yours will be different.

Of course I donít mind. Be sure you check the color options, other panels also listed that may fit your needs better then this one. It is over kill at the moment, I have nothing wired to the 4 switches. But plan on doing outdoor led lighting, step light, and hard wire my cell booster. Future proof in my opinion.

Amazon: $40

Thanks for the info. I have added it to my Amazon RV wish list for a future project.

Cut foam, and have all this extra space after moving water pump. Plan on putting or making a storage box for plumping, electrical, and other often not used items that I currently taking up space in the back.

Just got back from the reservoir and we noticed a mildew smell when we opened the awning so just sprayed her with a whole bottle if Camco mildew remover (both sides) and rolled her up to let it soak. Also had an outdoor light burn out (1156) and replaced her with LED i found at Wally World. Have a few loose screws (stripped) on the toothbrush holder so getting the wood glue and toothpicks.

It's an Inogen one G4. It's everything they say it is. Small, light, 2 hrs on the small battery on 2, 4 hours on the big battery. Has replaceable inexpensive sieve beds. 12V and 110V chargers. Only weak spot is battery longevity, like all portables. And they are expensive. So far mine are okay at 2 years.

They also makes an "Inogen Home" which is light and quiet 110V unit for the camper. $1700 I think.

Even better than steak and Bud Light is a steak and a 20 year old single malt scotch!

TRIED to install my new 30 amp EMS.
I had to remove the wires from the 30 amp inlet jack to have sufficient interior cable to avoid splicing in a patch cable. Then just add a new section to go from the inlet jack to the EMS allowing better placement. Simple job, right?
NO, the damn Furion jack's cold screw cross-threaded on the custom piece that grabs the wire! Non standard item as far as the electrical supply house is concerned. No jury rig possible by me. $65 for direct replacement Furion 30 amp jack. Several other name brands slightly less, lesser brands at about $25 and I found one for $16! Guess which one is due in Wednesday? I've been using the heck out of my Amazon Prime two day free shipping! Duct taped over the hole in the rain.
I got to get "R" done cause I want to go camping next week.

Behind every simple job is the Real Job. We all know better, but .......

Just ask the house flippers... "I can't believe there are actually wires, plumbing, duct work, bad carpentry, ______ (fill in the blank) behind that wall"! "Who would have known"!
