I like what you did with the Gas Struts and 3/4" Board for the bed. I might add that one to my list. I'm curious as to what you did for where the heater exhaust used to be. What kind of light
did you install and how effective is it? I no longer have a heater and would consider an accessory at the exhaust location rather than fiberglassing hole. Can you elaborate?
Also, was your front hump both screwed and fiberglassed? The hump on mine is screwed and fiberglassed. I would have to unscrew and cut off hump, then grind to smooth where fiberglass is. Is that what you did?
Keep updating us on your camper. You seem to have an addiction to working on it just like me. I had to slow down. We've camped twice since we got her in the heat of summer in the florida keys and it was nice except for the mosquitos. I bought a screened shade shelter so that ought to do the trick for next time.
i'd like to see your led tailligt mod...
actually, i dont have a light
at the exhaust vent yet, i have evreything setup to make one but i'm waiting on my LED bulb to come in. the round part is from a security camera housing. All i have left to do is add the light
But i now have other ideas and i might not use the vent hole as a light anymore..i'm thinking of making a plate with USB ports to connect a speaker, or maybe install a waterproof speaker into the hole... not sure yet.
My front bump was screwed and fiberglassed but just at a few spots..i've been able to remove by pulling on it really hard...after that i was an afternoon og grinding/bondoing/painting...
if you do the plywood mod, cut the plank 2" shorter than you think...you need to clear curtains/window handle plus fiberglass is curved at the wall/bed junction...its a pain to get the plywood into place...
in order to have the bed up with matress and sheets, I use a strap under the matress to bring the side up a little to clear the curtains and window handles.
current project are.:
-installing usb ports to recharge electronics and supply power to speaker.
-keep on updating wirering
-fix the non working position lights
next year project
-re-seal all windows
-repaint exterior red.
-replace power converter system.
-find a way to prevent water to come in from the range hood vent and fridge
-LED tailing convertion.
- exterior rgb led lighting
strip under the awning
-plus tons of ideas i have in my head!
it was quiet at the office today so i used my worktools to build a small distribution panel
i've hacked an old usb 1 hub and usb ports from old computers to use as my usb power source. i'm planning on having 1 close to the door, 1 by the front table and one somewhere at the back.
