Friday the upper trim is done picture shows 11/16 corner moulding, this covers the 1/4 in plywood edge. Chose wood instead of the plastic edging as I am a wood guy.

Also started the 12 v wiring, 2 exterior lights one on each side, 5 interior lights, 2 power points, 1 hood fan, and 1 fantastic vent. The rear tail lights after that and then the 120 volt stuff/ you can see in the pictures that have run some of the wires in upper cabinets and that I am using the gap beside the door for main wire runs to converter in bottom cabinet. Some of the pig tails are also visible hanging under cabinets. All 120 volt will run in bottom cabinets and under trailer.
I am like a kid in a candy store every time I go to RV store, always come out with more than I need but what the heck you only go around once so might as well have what I want.

That's the attitude!

One of the best bumper stickers I've ever seen says "Spend your kids inheritenace... you'll appreciate it more than they will."

True story... think about it

It is Sunday and 4 days to go before we tow it to Osoyoos (finished or not) yesterday and today got the driving lights rewired and all 12 volt wiring in just converter hookup and 120 volt left to do ( I have not even considered the propane yet). Finished the window backing and fantastic vent backing.

Have you drawn out a schematic of your layout that you can share?

First time I energize any electrical project, I close my eyes. If nothing explodes, I figure that is a good thing. Nothing happening is better then smoke. A bit more difficult to diagnose though.
I second the request for a schematic.

I would highly recommend if you havent yet is go to Lowes or HD and for about 10 bucks you can buy an AC sniffer that lights and buzzes as you run it along a 120/240 wire. You can check switches and outlets and see if AC is there and follow it to where it dies from port to port.

I called in the troops but he had to run along after 10 mins, He wasn't to much help so 8 hrs later I have it working well enough for the weekend. I don't have a schematic but still will draw one up when I know how to draw one up. It is safe and my plug tester registered good for the 120 volt plugs, and the 12 volt side and converter are working but the darn hong kong gang breakers won't switch things off, I think they are faulty. I hooked one up separately and it wouldn't shut the circuit off, they were the main problem all along. They are all bypassed for now and will rely on my friends circuit breakers in his home in Osoyoos for safety. will rethink breaker switches after I get a reply back from Leimarine in Hong Kong if they are indeed faulty or application is wrong. They are 120-250volt ac, 36volt dc switched breakers so they should work. My friend in Sicamous is a master marine electrical engineer but can't get a hold of him, he was the electrical guru at Waterway houseboats when I worked there. So tomorrow on to other more pressing things, access doors, arborite and whatever else happens along.

The shore power plug I used the old hole for the city water connection and cut the back off of the water connection fitting and then used the past owners homemade shore power plug and attached it to the ressurrected water connection plate voila two birds down with one stone.

Just about ready for the weekend, completed a few things today. Arborite is done and countertops attached.
Attachment 59109
Attachment 59110
Attachment 59111
Also remounted the old heater. The gas is not hooked up yet but that will have to wait until next week.
Attachment 59112
One side storage compartment completed, they always take longer than they should when you have to adapt. The door was for a flat side modern trailer with no exterior fastening system so I made a liner for the inside of trailer out of 3/4 inch birch ply

I then rounded off the corners as the bulk was not needed only about 1 1/4 inch all the way around. I then drilled in new screw holes so it could be screwed from the outside and butyl on the door flange, then put it in.

I am a bit disappointed in that I have yet to see the jacuzzi and sports bar. Other then that I am jealous.
Your hard work is paying off big time and your talents are enviable.

Thank you Mike and Imogene. It took me 35 yrs to learn this stuff, I wish I was closer to others as I would love to lend a hand on some projects. Now the sports bar, I wish you would have mentioned it earlier while I was in design stage, will have to settle for drinking at the fishing holes, that will be my sports bar. In my younger days when I was a custom Van guy-- weLLLL never mind that was a different kind of sporting event!! LOL
We are all cleaned up and curtains coming in two hours, threw in some old upholstery so my butt doesn't go flat when sitting around. It is otherwise ready for maiden voyage. Yes the compartment fits the pontoon boat and cooler. NO the fishing rods don't fit in there hole, some adjustments when I get back. If other designs are good I won't hear any complaints from my bride this weekend so here is hoping all is well. Of course there will be the usual no cupboard doors and no flooring complaints but I can grow a deaf ear real quick!! LOL Will post under way picks if My daughter has her computer working.
Ryan

Nothing brings the whole thing together like fabric, the curtains!, wow did Debs friend Rhonda do a job on them! The inner fabric is outdoor furniture stuff with a black out liner on the outer (which is light brown who woodda thunk black is actually brown) the bottom has a weighted strip sewn in so they hang and roll up nicely

they look good all rolled up. The upholstery is being made from the same fabric, and the bed foam cover from the black out fabric.
