Linda, the instruction manual for the Dometic 211 fridge can be downloaded from this page:
Fiberglass RV - Document Center - Refrigerators

Print it out and keep it in the camper, along with any other "how do it work" info for things like furnace, inverter/charger, etc.

I removed all the gas fixtures and lines. I am staying away from gas and opting to put in a 12v system that will be independent of the 110v service. I will cook with gas outside and will be using a cooler in place of the fridge. Will be keeping the sink and hooking it up to 12v pump to small 3 or 5 gallon tank.
As far as your floor, I do not have any better way for you to look for the way the table mounted other then ripping up the carpet.

Just wondering........did you keep the table? Or is the bed "permanent"? If it is, where do you eat? Outside?

- Removed front and rear windows ( I am planning on running long planks from front to back through the window openings to support the shell so i will not need to support the shell from the bottom. This way i can completely remove the old floor).

I am also looking for suggestions for the new floor. I assume i will need to install the floor in 2 or more sections due to the lip on the exterior shell that the wood needs to slide into. I am looking for advise on materials, how they installed the floor in sections, and how they joined them together keeping the sections from sagging.

I look forward to reading suggestions.

End of day one... Day 2 should be fun...

Iphone pictures uploaded upside down... sorry for the head tilt...
Sorry....my question about the table was for you......
