Hope you take lots of pictures of your version of
the Snoozy Dave. Looks like you have some good
ideas.

Thanks Carl, I will. You have no idea how many hours I have spent looking at all of your pictures and anyone else's I could find, and would think of ways to make it to our liking. I'm really sorry that you had to sell your Lil Snoozy. I hope you'll have another one or some other FGRV soon.

I am having them install a MaxxAir fan on the roof above the shower, and they are also installing Hehr crank out style windows, and lowering the air conditioner, so I can install larger overhead cabinets. I also have a 2 burner flush mount cooktop with glass cover that I will be installing. I don't know exactly what or how I will be doing other mods to "make it our own" until we actually am able to see one and use it a while, but it will be an enjoyable project.

WOW, sounds like you went all out.. Great ideas please post some pictures when you get it.

Very interesting, Dave and Paula; take lots of pictures and show us the details when you can. We already have the 7 pin trailer connection because that is what our TV had.

There is another way to run a 120 volt A/C frig while towing. It involves installing a 300 watt inverter under the hood of the tow vehicle and running wires to the frig. Don Dayton has a very detailed step by step of his method.

Thanks Dave.
I've already emailed Lil Snoozy again.
Just can't help dreaming....................LOL
Had to get up and put pain cream on the old
feet. That Neuropathy makes it hard to sleep
sometimes.

In the meantime bought the wife a new Honda
Odyssey. Traded in the Tacoma so will also need
a new tow vehicle if we're ever able to get back
out there.

I'm sure glad Snoozy is so flexible with the builds.
My ideas have certainly changed over the last year.
Really looking forward to your pictures when you
get yours. I know it will be a real dandy.

Thanks Susie, Melanie and all who chimed in. I had planned to have the factory replace the refrigerator with a 12 volt but now I think I will try the stock one for awhile. I can replace it myself if the 120 volt does not work out. The drain hose seems like a non issue.

I have not seen the newer Snoozy gray water tank , but the old one was bad real bad , not a gray water tank a water holding tank sprayed black the discharge valve is about the size of a water hose and is on the side of the tank about 1/2 the way up . you can not empty the tank 100% always 2 to 4 gallons of water left . after a while it will stink no mater what u do . I changed mine to a standard rv tank with 4in drain it will drain in 60 sec. as for fridge an inverter in the truck does the job.

I looked at one at the Snoozy shop last week. It was clear and the outlet was not right on the bottom but close. It appears that with the trailer tilted a little it would drain completely. I wish I had paid closer attention to the hose size.

We are ordering ours next week!!
