Propane light works great!

Hitch cleaned & repainted. New safety chains, hitch lock,
propane tanks & sidemount jack installed

Rear access door refitted with vents for a/c

A/C didn't cool as well as hoped. Needed additional venting
and added a fan to help circulate the air. A small boxed area was added
for insulated flexible duct and route through. Ductwork was then run behind the refrigerator and into the closet area.

Electrical box moved to accomodate the a/c ductwork. Second a/c
vent added above the closet door. The a/c now works well enough
to hold cool in the direct sun at 100 degrees!

New vintage light added to replace broken one in rear.

A/C ductwork takes up small portion of the cabinet under the fridge

The refinished sink and new paper towel holder

New curtains & curtain rods. Kids voted to keep the tie-dye on the back
bed as they said it suited the vintage look.

Hammock pilfered from another Scotty and installed over the dinette.
Cushions covered with Grandma's vintage drapery fabric.

Ready to roll!
