Thanks Dino, my thoughts exactly especially that it is right next to stove, next project is a matching piece of Corian to make a cover for the stove for more counter space when not in use

We bought a large cutting board at camping world that fits perfect on top of the stove. It has rubber feet so it doesnt slide

Our coach came with the splash guard on back and side wall. The side wall was coming loose so I put a little liquid nails behind it to hold it in place. I'm going to take both off, found some nice looking "stick-on" tile at Lowes that can be cut with scissors, you can look at it on-line by searching for "stick-on tile". Lowes has several patterns that look nice, need to wait for warmer weather so it will stick better.

Those are nice SD. I was going to put them on the 5th wheel but bought the mh instead. I like the back splash we have on ours but if they ever get messed up ill do the same as you

Why do you go higher than the Goodyear chart shows?

I have the same board for several years now, and it still works fine.

MAXXAIR Fanmate Covers and Telescoping Ladder

Hello all!

Attached is a pic of my next Mod. If you remember from an earlier entry, I replaced the OEM vent and vent fan on my Windsport 29M with MAXXAIR powered vent fans. This installation will complete that Mod. I also ordered and installed the bug screen for each cover. The extra bug screen seen will be installed in the vent cover that came with the MH. I purchased a telescoping ladder too. We are supposed to get a little dusting of snow today so I will have to wait until the weather clears before I get on the roof again.

My coach sticker shows 82 and the coach rides great at this psi Goodyear says 75 with my weight, if I decide to fill up my on board water tank, run between CG with tanks not empty, bring additional people on a trip or extra amenities I don't need to adjust psi

Jerry, I have the same ladder only it's red, love it! Bought the ladder at Target in the clearance section for $49!!! Someone must have mispriced the ladder, didn't care, bought it and ran like the wind! Tip: spray the slides with silicone occasionally or it gets hard to extend and retract. I use mine to get on the roof, drape an old towel across the rung to keep from scratching the ladder, extend and then lean ladder against coach ladder. It makes getting on the roof a lot easier not having to climb the straight skinny ladder!!!

x2 on the telescoping ladder. Ours is one of the heavy duty ones that will hold 350 lbs. and is very solid when propped against the coach. It also came with a storage and carrying bag which makes getting it into and out of the storage compartment much easier. I found it on Amazon (they have quite a selection.)

I picked up one of the Little Giant ladders when Costco had a special on them... (they make a special ladder for Costco - so can't match it exactly elsewhere...)

Was bought with more than the RV in mind - and has gotten lots of use at home... The ability to telescope... use as A-frame (including uneven for stairs) or extension ladder is great.

Not sure I'd bring it on every trip - but for the long winter voyage it was strapped (and locked) to the rear ladder. Already used it a couple of times here.

Definitely costs a bit more...
