    Duane, how did you remove the decal / sticker from the front cab?

    Also, the plug by for the Heater on the entertainment cabinet, where did you pick up the power from?

    Thanks

    The breaker panel is only 3 feet to the door side of that outlet.

    I added a 20 amp breaker and used 12/2 wire.
    I used the 12/2 as I was expecting this to be primarily used for a heater.

    Sorry about that, I meant "cap" and not cab. I was referring to the "Patent pending" sticker. I wanted to remove it now before the cap yellowed and faded, and didn't want to make a mess out of removing it.

    Thanks

    Almost every trailer I saw had that decal with one corner folded over to get a lift point.

    Just pulled it off. Sometimes with decals like this if you start pulling and it leaves a lot of residue just give it a good yank and pull it off quickly.

    I don't remember which way worked on mine but I had very little residue which quickly cleaned off with "Goo Gone".

    I know someone here posted about a potential problem using Goo Gone,
    but I have never had any issues with it - it just works.

    I used Goo Gone on the remnants of my sticker and then washed it thoroughly to remove it. Waxed as soon as it dried.

    Re: And so it begins

    Started doing the bed storage. Begins with enough cheap stick on tile to make the mattress slide around so much easier.
    Added a piano hinge from HD to the already two piece platform.
    There will be about 4" of storage the width of the bed when I am finished.
    Right now there is enough room to store both the dinette cushion and filler in this new space.

    Re: And so it begins

    Cyclone vents for the forward gray and black tank.
    These are on sale at CW right now, 2 for 1.

    There is not enough room on the rear gray tank on the 3010 to fit a Cyclone vent.

    Re: And so it begins

    Garage AC vent. Air distribution is minimal in the garage and with the bunks up non existent. I got and extra vent to cut in.
    If you do this don’t be surprised when you cut in and fine no duct, it is not on the floor of the roof, it is about 2” above.
    I replaced the original vent with a closable version and added a HL style about 2 feet forward.

    After cutting into the duct I could see that it was sagging in the middle, probable reducing airflow. I added a spacer block to the duct before putting the vent in. Last picture is the new vent with the bunks up.

    I am considering adding one more vent I the living room, 2 just don’t seem to do the job.
    Although I wish the vents were directional 1 way instead of 2 way. In the living room in order to get the air flow towards the couch means ½ the air flow blows against the refrigerator and galley cabinets.

    Re: And so it begins

    There are not enough tie downs in the garage and I sure wish the aircraft style listed in the manual was available. I intend on adding it later, but the lack of access will make for a difficult job. I would really like to add some of the ABT (aluminum bevel track, aircraft style) to the sides of the garage wall, but the actual wall completely covers the steel support underneath.

    I added one floor tie down although you can’t see in this picture, it is in the middle just ahead of the storage bins and through bolted into the bin frame.

    Re: And so it begins

    I use BikePro drive on wheel chocks in both of my trailers. And I added a winch in the far left corner. If needed I will use a small snatch block I picked up at Tractor Supply attached to one of the floor D-Rings.

    Never know when – and there is no way you are pushing an 800 pound golf cart or motorcycle up that ramp!
    I figure once permanently wired in I could use it if it raining and the ramp is wet, will make for a much safer trailer entry. Even a 12 volt alarm battery will give enough juice to use this winch, but I will wire in some 10 gauge up to the battery.
