I spent most of the weekend on a project to turn the table/bed into a full-sized grownup bed instead of one for short people / children. As it was, it was barely 5’7″ and I’m nearly 5’8″ so for me to sleep there I would have had to curl up and not stretch out and I did not like that idea at all.
So we cut the back support of the seat closest to the steps, put in a piano hinge, a support leg on a hinge and now we just need to install a slide lock to keep the back up when we want to use it as a table. I’m not sure these photos do justice to what we accomplished, but I’m taking the RV out for my first overnight this weekend and I’ll get better ACTION photos then 🙂
These are in-between photos. I still have some touch up to do to the paint on the back since that plywood splintered like crazy, but I want to be sure this will work out the way I hope and plan to test it this weekend.
I also got a CO alarm, fire alarm, fire extinguisher and a thermometer/humidity gauge installed. I’m wondering how cold it will be in Denali this weekend and if we need to use the furnace.
Oh! And I fixed the window that was flapping open which had been taped shut with the metal ducting tape that cuts you. All the sticky had come off and I found the original bracket that was just missing the screw to hold it in place so now this window stays shut when I drive!
I’ve got some cleanup to do to get the sticky residue off and need to replace the screen, but we are still in the 20-30F temps at night so it’s not a rush to get that screen replaced just yet.
No more flapping window! This is the before pic. I forgot to get an after pic and the RV is at the shop getting a tuneup before I take her out this weekend so the after pic will have to wait 🙂
