Default Lots of options

Wow, looks great. Good job.

We especially like the Menards light fixture because the center of our motorhome is really a little on the dark side. Our blue carpet is worn and thinking of replacing it with vinyl planks in the Spring.

Awesome job. Looks fantastic
We've been updating also. This spring we r pulling vinyl flooring and doing a brown bag flooring, to lose wt. Vinyl is to heavy for us.
Were replacing hot water to propane on-demand tankless system.
Lights replaced with LEDs

Some great ideas. Looks great. I think I have the same model if that is the 36' Cresendo. I also replaced the floor with planking and love it. I like the relocation of the TV and addition of the fireplace. I have found the drawer slides to be very cheap and am installing new slides. Are yours OK? Great job!

Yes, it's 36', don't jinx it, np with drawer slides, but reminded me of changing the pantry!

Thanks for any input,
Buck

We have an 2005, we are updating are front TV I'd like to know how you removed the steel enclosure that held the TV. Did you cut the welds? Or just cut the enclosure??

Thanks!

Buck, I loosened the plastic cover above it then screwed into the angle support that's there. It's not a rock solid mount but it's into metal so I don't think it's going anywhere
Sandy&Dale, I cut out that whole pan at the welds, sawsall and cutoff wheels, cover your dash & floor to catch metal dust & shavings

I'm curious about the shades. What have they done for you? It looks like they darken the interior, do they also keep the unit cooler?

The shades are for driving, I'm working on a home made Magna shade for cooling when parked
