The Corian like material cuts perfectly fine with a reciprocating saw. It also sands easily.
2  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / TV over aft Bed on PC2350 on: May 11, 2013, 07:05:34 pm
We finally removed the flat screen TV from the front middle cabinet to the back of the cabinet wall over the aft bed.
The cabinet walls are double. Its easy to sneak the TV , 110V outlet and 12V outlet cables up.
Once you remove the under surface of the cabinet you can string all the cables.
We installed a spacer into the double wall in order to get a solid attachment of the TV wall mount.
Now its a pleasure to watch TV in bed.

We left the third bucket seat out to have more space at the entrance. Instead we have the passenger captains chair turn around and the little entrance corner cabinet has a fold up surface. This provides a perfect comfortable computer work space.The free wall space allows jackets etc to hang.

We finally removed the TV from the middle front cabinet and attached it on the wall in front of the corner bed.
Perfect TV viewing in bed. Can't get any better.

Here a nice pic of the white PC on white"sand"

Some mods we made. The cut out of the sink cover proved extremely useful.

We have a PC2100 are seriously researching Alaska for 2014. Want to do the ferry at least one way. Would appreciate any information you can provide.
For the Alaska ferry trip, which btw. we also did only one way, you can google Alaska inside passage ferry. Book well in advance! It sells out quickly. We stopped over on several islands over night and camped out to visit the sites. Than took the next pre arranged boat. Since there are no roads in southern Alaska there is only the Ferry which we entered from British Columbia. For the way back we drove the famous Alaska Highway build in WWII in 2 summers! It's now all asphalted and in good repair.
Also to see the midnight sun from Fairbanks instead of driving the gravel road to the polar circle we just went up the mountain outside Fairbanks and presto: perfect midnight sun.

The original vinyl floor does not reach under the carpet. The subfloor of the whole unit is plywood of course and the new slate pattern and structured surface comes in locking plates and is glued with an elastic glue to the plywood.
We left the original vinyl in the bathroom because it's less sensitive to standing water. The new material is very resistant to scratches.

Ever since the PC was new we hated the carpet right at the entrance. A real dirt catcher. After cleaning the rug too many times we got encouraged by others and looked into a wood floor. However RV Renovators in Mesa, AZ convinced us to use a faux slate instead. It matches the colors of the leather and the wood and has structure. We use a small removable carpet under the dinette.

Phoenix installed a three burner Atwood stove initially. Their effort to have a matching Corian folding lid was in vane since folded up it was a real dirt catcher. We put a wooden cutting board on top instead and hold it down with a shock cord when under way. The Tree burner gives real space to push frying pans around and allows serious cooking. Glad we did it!

Just looked at my extra locks. They are actually from Sugatsune PKL-08 GA. But I have also seen Nakamichi locks that not only lock on push but also turn to open when out.
Look them up on the internet.
The locks have an out side and inside part. You need to drill with a core saw for the outside part. Position it well so that the inside part hooks behind the wood frame. I had to do several cut outs into the frame to close and open correctly.
9  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / simple solution for shade tensioner attachment on: March 01, 2013, 05:31:17 pm
The old problem of the shade tensioner screw to pull out can be solved with a cheap self cutting drywall insert that has a machine screw in the center. Available in any hardware store. Installation in a minute. It's holding up for us for several years now.

Since we didn't like the light of the original fluorescent lamp at dinner over the dinette, we replaced it with these two focal lights with build in dimmer.

On our trip to the Mexican beach we had a lot of trouble with doors open on their own while driving down rough roads.
We modified all the critical doors with Sugatsune push and lock to close locks.

To prevent mildew under the mattress we placed a slat-frame assembly bought from IKEA. It vents the space under the mattress very effectively. No more mildew!

Up the mountains of British Columbia on the way to Alaska.

Coming off the Alaska Ferry.

Why we like the Dinette option.
