Added solar panels

Just got done adding 6 of the 10 panels on the roof. Works great. I loaded it down and was able to produce 26 amps in direct sunlight. Very happy

JD - was your rig pre-wired for solar or did you need to run everything yourself?

That was my question. Mine is pre-wired and I didnít know where the wires inside the coach were.

Changed front vent to powered

I wanted a powered vent up front but when I removed the inside shroud I found it was encased with aluminum. So I came up with the idea of using pan-do-it. It is an adhesive conduit on one side. I found a small round one about 1/2 in and a little bag of corner adapters and it worked great. Almost looks like it should be there. I drilled through the wall across from the antenna amp and hooked into that power circuit.

Front curtains

I needed a way to cover up the top window 9n the driver and passenger side so my wife and I came up with this. She cut the curtain where the top window and bottom window meet. Then hemmed them . I added a rod with rings and they clip to the lower curtain.
