Hopefully this will make some sense the overall measurement are 24-5/8" wide by 22" deep I made it in 2 sections this way we can still use the front burner if we want, the back section is 12" deep x 24-58" wide, the front section is 10" x 24-5/8". I put that little curly thing for 2 reasons it allows a handle to pull up and out the section and it also allows heat to escape from over I matched the design from the sink covers.

We've got the Vegas 24.2 - We had an alignment done at GVW and then replaced the original sway bars with the Roadmaster sway bars. Awesome improvement... two finger steering with movement of the steering wheel actually equating to movement of the wheels....

This was the first thing I got rid of on my 35M. I replaced it with my wooden stovetop cover that I took with me when I traded my class C in (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

WOW that looks great. I can't believe that you found a piece that matches your counter top.

Hey guys just a reminder for you all. Check the water in your batteries. I checked mine today and they took water. Not a lot but they were low. Sure glad I got the qwik fill systems.

Kev,
Just did a kittle research for you. The mp2010 is only for one battery. The mp2000 is for two batteries. So for the house batteries you need the mp2000

I posted earlier the new blinds i got for the front driver and passenger windows. Dino used the reflexit to cover the front portion of the window that the blinds didnt cover. I didnt want yo buy a whole role just for a couple feet that was needed. So i used some cardboard that i had from a new backyard patio set we got at costco. Cut the cardboard to fit tge area. We went to walmart and bought a brown blackout drape. Glued it to the cardboard with 3M spray adhesive then to fit. Looks better than the bare cardboard. Also made one for the kitchen window when in storage
