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

Got my 4 drawers assembled and glued together today. Wahoo! http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/finishingdrawers.jpg

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

Finally got all my drawer parts cut and machined and are ready to be assembled. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/drawersready.jpg All my grooves and dado's are cut, just waiting for glue, clamps, and plywood. Wahoo!

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

Anyone remember this? http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/uvlightglue8.jpg Yes, that's the "ear" that I rebuilt on our Magic Bullet blender, after it had broken off. If you remember, I first tried gluing the original back on, and that only held up for about a week or two. Then I created a completely new "ear" from the UV light glue. It is still holding up just fine. It's been about a month or so. It's still looking good at this point. I'll wait a little while and see how it goes, that is assuming I remember to post about it. Lol.

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

Hey there! Sorry for causing a couple of days of "withdrawal" symptoms for a few of you. Anyhow, I had a little time to continue working on the next set of drawers. I cut the grooves for the drawer bottoms, and then started cutting the grooves for the slides in some of the sides. I have 1/2 of those cut, so I can finish the other 2 sets tomorrow. Forecast is for rain, so I'll not be able to work on other stuff outside, so I should be able to get some work done inside the coach. Wahoo! http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/cuttindrawers.jpg

Another computer emergency today for a customer. Took care of my day for working on the MOHO. UGH!

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

Got my next set of drawer sides, fronts, and backs cut to size. I need to cu the grooves, dado's, etc before assembling them. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/drawersides6.jpg

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

Those look like the ones I have under the cupboards in my house to light up the counters. They work very well. As of now, those are the ones that I am planning on using. They provide a lot of light, and look like they should be versatile. We'll see how they look as the build progresses.

Took the day off today. Hopefully, tomorrow will be a little bit more productive than today was.

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

Here we have it sitting in place. It's not fastened yet, but that should not take long to fasten it into place. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/drawerframe7.jpg By the way, all of the drawers under this side of the counter top, will give us roughly about 28 cu ft of storage space. Not too shabby!

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

Moving on. After picking up a piece of 3/4" plywood at the box store. I moved it into the garage, sliced off a section from the side, and cut that up into pieces that I needed to continue the construction of the frame that I need to support the next set of drawers. Using the Kreg jig, with glue and screws, I've now gotten the next section of the frame assembled. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/drawerframe6.jpg

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

Instead of trying to lift a piece of plywood and carry it into the garage all by myself, this makes a wonderful aid. You know, just like all the off label uses of drugs ---- used for something they were not originally intended for ---- this works well or moving plywood! Wahoo. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/skateboard2.jpg I think his falls under the category of working "smarter", not "harder". This info is worth just what you paid for it. Lol.

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

Sometimes the answer you need is right in front of you, if you just look around a little bit. This skateboard has been a wonderful help to me over the years at times. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/skateboard.jpg

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

Here is a pic of the led I have that was used for the preceding comparison. It has 24 led's, 18 of which are spread around the outside, with an additional 6 on the end. It works well, but I like the string lights more. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/ledround.jpg

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

in case you want to look at these lights, here is the link to them on Amazon. Led link. Overall, I am happy with them, and they are dimmable, which will adjust the amount of energy used, in case you need to conserve some, or just want some mood lighting.

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

You can't see it in this picture, but I changed the size of the wire between the twisted strip light ends, and the power supply, to a larger size, and this happened. The supply voltage went down a touch, the amps went up to 4.70, watts at 60.8, and the voltage at the end of any of the strips is now up to 10.80. Proof that wire size changes things. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/stripleds14.jpg

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

Now, with all of the incoming leads tied together, our incoming voltage dropped just a touch to 12.99 instead of the 13.11. All of the strips are getting the same "high" voltage and our amps jump to 3.94 with the watts at 51.1. Outgoing voltage on any of the 6 strips end up at 10.42. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/stripleds13.jpg You can also see that the lights are much brighter, (obviously), as well as using more amps/watts from the supply side, collectively.
fulltimin 04/27/21 09:12pm Class A Motorhomes
RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Next step is to take 6 strips, and tie all of the incoming wires together, with the outgoing ends, not connected to anything. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/stripleds12.jpg

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

Here is an overview of all 8 hooked together, and you can see that the brightest ones are at the top, with the highest voltage, and they get progressively dimmer as the voltage drops. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/stripleds11.jpg

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

Adding another strip to make it 7 in a row, with amperage at 1.88 and watts at 24.6. Outgoing voltage is now at 8.02. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/stripleds9.jpg And the final one with 8 in a row, here we have 1.87 amps, 24.5 watts with an outgoing voltage of 7.93. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/stripleds10.jpg
fulltimin 04/27/21 08:59pm Class A Motorhomes
RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Moving to 5 strips and amps are 1.87, with watts at 24.5. The outgoing voltage drops to 8.40 http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/stripleds7.jpg With 6 strips we are at 1.87 amps, with watts at 24.5. Outgoing volts are 8.17. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/stripleds8.jpg
