RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Depending on how the "V's" are cut, will make a difference on how much contact area there is between the mating surfaces. That will either increase or decrease the surface area. Like I said earlier - if the mating surfaces are coated "only" with wax, so the was soaks into the wood, it works well. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/shelfjoint3.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I offset the groove on the 2 pieces that will screw to the wall, to allow some space between the sliding portion and the wall. Here you can see about 1/4" between the sliding portion in the center, and the wall. The drawer bottom will be fastened to the sliding portion. If you haven't used a wooden slide with furniture wax, it's actually pretty slick. (pun intended) http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/shelfjoint2.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I started off by creating my sliding joint, (no, not drugs), this is wooden. I'll be using the same type joint that I used on the rear window cover. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/shelfjoint.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Good morning. The maniac is back! Lol. Here's the next part of this project. Below the top shelf "area" in the rear, I am going to install a sliding shelf. This will be to house the Breville oven. Say, what? Well, I figure, if I put it in the back, mounted on a slide, it will be out of the way when not in use. When we want to use it, we'll just slide the shelf out, and we can close the door between the kitchen and rear "area", and keep all of the heat back there, as well as either open the window, or turn on the vent fan that I will eventually install in that area. If on the other hand we want the heat ... we can just leave everything closed up and the heat will filter front. Crazy? Maybe, but, at the moment, it looks like it should work. You know, kinda like "Hey, watch this"! http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/bathshelf2.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I did get some work done today getting ready for drawers in the passenger side rear of the coach. I even took pictures, but, alas, did not have enough time to process and post them, so I'll have them up tomorrow.

Glad you are still rocking! Yup, haven't quit yet! Looking forward to being able to work and post every day again. Hopefully, that will be starting tomorrow! Wahoo....

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I also have a setup that looks like a nice shelf, all the way at the back on the passenger side, but it's not... This area is 19" wide and 26" deep. I don't like those dimensions as the stuff at the back tends to get lost. As a result, after a discussion with the other half, we are going to use a basket in this area that can be pulled out completely with access to everything inside. Since this is on the high side, we will use this for toilet paper, and paper towels, and a few boxes of tissues. That won't weigh much, so it should be just fine. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/bathshelf.jpg I'll try and do better with my updates in the future!

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Another thing I needed to correct was the space between the rear escape window latches and the slider. I thought I had enough room in there by using 3/4" plywood for the rails, and 1/4 in for the slider, with the groove offset. Alas, the best laid plans..... As a result, I got tired of messing with this, and just cut a small groove in the slider to get enough room for clearance. Yup... I finally hit the point with this particular area --- That's close enough! Lol. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/rearwindowcover4.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

After adding a few screws to secure the sliding tracks into position, it looks like this. There is a small gap on the right side, which will be covered by the time this installation is finished. After closing this, I went outside in the dark, and there was no light coming through to the outside. That's exactly what I wanted. Yeehaw! The slider is a nice fit, and doesn't take much pressure to move it back and forth. I do plan on being able to remove the slider when it's in the bathroom side, just in case I need to remove it. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/rearwindowcover5.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Hey everyone! I'm back. For all of you who are suffering from withdrawal symptoms, due to no updates.... well, here ya go... Lol. I did some more work on the rear window cover. I needed to add a little extra space between the 2 x 3 and the sliding cover. I think I may add a mirror to the sliding plywood, and wanted a little extra space available. Should be a useful item. I don't plan on driving with the cover closed. That is primarily for use when we are stationary. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/slidingrearwindowcover.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Our toaster/oven just bit the dust! Which model did you choose as your favorite? Breville BOV900BSS Breville's website with full specs. We currently have the model BOV845 and it works wonderfully. The 900 has 13 different settings, and includes 13 Preset Functions: Toast, Bagel, Broil, Bake, Roast, Warm, Pizza, Proof, Air Fry, Reheat, Cookies, Slow Cook and Dehydrate. It will also take a 1/4 sheet baking pan/ 9x13 and will roast a Turkey that is about 14 lbs. I want to upgrade to that model for the dehydrator and air fryer functions. Overall, we are very happy with the Breville ( BOV845BSS) we have, but I want more features for the one in the Moho. They do go on sale periodically. A wonderful website for sales of anything is Slickdeals.net I have no affiliation with them, but have found some good deals on items over time.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I think we may have completed our list of kitchen appliances that are on our "must have" list. This is for fulltiming use. Our first is a 3 burner cooktop, powered by propane. We also have a convection oven which doubles as a toaster. There is a newer version of the one we have, which also serves as an oven, a toaster, a dehydrator, and an air fryer. There are about 13 different settings on the upgraded one, and I must say "I want one"! In addition, we use a microwave frequently for reheating small amounts of food. We also use an Instant Pot frequently. We have a small portable blender, used daily, as well as a bread making machine that we use at least twice a week, plus at times making pizza dough, or dough for rolls, buns, or bagels, which get made in the portable electric oven. We also use a Keurig coffee maker on a daily basis. Our frying pan is of the non-stick variety, along with a few T304 surgical stainless steel pots for cooking things like pasta and veggies. Along with that is my newest best friend - a vacuum food saver. I have discovered that most foods actually last muuuuuch longer in a vacuum sealed bag than food that is stored without vacuum packaging. In some cases, food that would have gone bad in 1 month have lasted 4 - 6 months! Yay! As a result, I have created a few cardboard replicas of some of these items, so I know where and how they will fit. Wahoo!

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

This is what I was confronted with. The 2 with the red arrows were the same width, but different lengths. The one at the bottom was 12" long, and the one at the top was 30" long. Prices? $6.48 for 12", and $7.98 for the 30" one. 2.5 times longer for a mere $1.50. Whoda thunk? Yes, they are identical, except for the length. Same width, same thickness, same finish - everything, including the same manufacturer. Go figure. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/hinges2.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Had a family day yesterday with the son, and it was great. It's always a good time when family visits. Anywhooooooo....... Went to the close Lowes store, 3 miles, instead of the 8 miles to the Depot, and looked for hinges. I ended up buying a pair of these to use with the shelf at the rear of the coach. They are 1 - 1/16" and are 30 inches long. Got 2 of them. Yes, we are decorated for Valentines day......... http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/hinges.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Where does all the equipment required to "put on her face" go when the table is folded down. Sounds like a lot of work to move it to and from the shelf everyday. That's actually a good question. Currently, almost none of her "put your face on" items are on the counter. Almost everything is in a small cabinet behind a mirror above the sink area. Using a drawer to the left of where the shelf will be will hold her "stuff". She doesn't use much makeup, so it won't take up much space.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

When the shelf is pulled into the upright position, the hinged piece of 1/8" thick plywood will automatically fall down into this position. The only hardware needed is a hinge, as gravity will do the rest. When putting the shelf back into the down position, all I need to do is push the 1/8" plywood back up into position, and the 1/2" plywood shelf will fold down easily. I do plan on using one of these towards each end of the shelf, so between the 2 of them, they should hold the shelf nicely, and out of the way when not in use. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/rearshelfhinged.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I also started work on a prototype setup for the rear shelf, which will go beneath the rear window cover. Let's assume that the window behind the plywood is a wall. My shelf is 1/2" plywood, and as you can see, I routed out a portion so that a piece of 1/8" thick plywood will sit in there and the plywood will still be flush with the wall. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/rearshelf.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

That closes things off when assembled and provides a better glue joint when using the Kreg pocket screw joint. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/rearwindowcoverfix2.jpg
