Spring has lit a fire under you trucker! Love seeing it all come together. Could show more details on that fresh water tank install. Never seen one come together like yours has. All those fancy fans--are you planning a lot of batteries or just will use the generator to run stuff?
The Fantastic fans are low amps But I will still have two T105 batterys to start and have the room for two more later this summer and will also be adding a solar panel.

One thing to keep in mind with a Fantastic fan in the bathroom. If you have it on exhaust when you flush the toilet, it will suck the fumes out of the black tank when the toilet valve is opened. This is obviously not what you want, so remember to turn off the fan before flushing.

It looks like you are off to a great spring start.
Thanks for the tip here, For sure dont need that.

I got the cool LED tail lights today, They will look great and I just can't wait to get these put in, Also got the rubber roof seal, (For touch up) and some Lap sealant and a 50' roll of double stick eternabond, By the time I get the carpet installed I should have all the parts I need to put us on the Lake side.


Where did you get the LED tail lights? This thread has been a good read; thanks for posting it.

OT,
If your FanTastic fan is like mine with a remote control be aware that even when not in use the fan will draw current via the receiver and run down your house battery. I thought my battery was going bad at first. Now I use the battery cut off switch until I get around to installing a master switch on the fan itself.

Wouldn't you agree that it makes more sense for the manufacturer to install a 2 or 3 dollar master switch on a $245 fan? Cutting off all power to the coach or removing a fuse to disable the receiver is idiotic. I removed the fuse a couple of times and realized that the holder was not designed for easy and frequent removal and would not withstand such abuse. Finding the fuse and re-installing it in the dark can be difficult. Having the the coach sit idle for a week or two is not what I call being in storage but they deem it to be if one doesn't use the fan every day. What nonsense!
