Congrats all around--to Ann, the doggies, and the PC crew!  And thanks for taking the time to post the pictures, Ann.  I love pouring over that stuff.

Nice - it's great to gain large item storage space.  I like the idea of a shelf on top too. HiThere

Beautiful! Congrats on the competition and the successful house design. I hope you got business cards from Phoenix to make your life easier when all those competitors see your new show coach and want one for themselves.

I think you did a very nice job and the dogs look very content.
Ron, look at picture two and the controls and windows. If the platform were to be higher she could not get to the windows to open them. This lady sure is thinking this out before she does anything. ThumbsUp

I see you built a platform for the crates, offering some large flat storage areas.  Nice practical touch there.  That has me wondering if you could have had the factory build a low profile cabinet-faced platform to match your couch-bed on the other side.  This way if you ever wanted to travel without the cages, you could toss a cushion/matress there for a second couch-bed.  Is there a reason why it would be a bad idea to have such a platform made taller to create additional storage?

Just the gears turning inside my head.

The plumbing for my fresh water fill runs along the inside back of the cabinet under my cooktop.  That cabinet has a good tall space and I wanted to store my gallon jugs of drinking water in it, but I didn't want them to slide into the plumbing when we're going down the road.  There are probably better carpentry solutions to this problem, but I had to do something quickly with materials at hand, so I built a guard around the plumbing with some scrap PVC and fittings that I had.  It was quick, easy and it's light and strong. It's not actually attached to anything, but rests securely against the back and sides and doesn't touch the plumbing.  The pieces aren't glued, just pushed together, so I can pop it apart and remove it easily if I need to.  I might put a closetmaid shelf on top of it for something like a roll of trash bags or such.

We are finally on our first competition trip in the new PC.  It took almost two weeks to build and install my dog bed crates and I have plenty of tweaks still planned.  We are using every inch, but everything is functioning beautifully.  At less than 23' with no slide, it still feels spacious and comfortable...and after a 12 hour day on our feet, it's all about hassle-free comfort.  

No, the dogs do not live in the crates full time, but they are securely confined when I'm driving, for their meals, and other times when I can't directly supervise (can't afford to have them redecorate).

I still have to pinch myself as I sit here and look around me, that only a few months ago I sat in front of a piece of paper and drew my dream RV.  I could hardly believe it when Earl told me they could build it.  So far it has exceeded all my expectations.  As a bonus, the PC appears to be lucky as well...we won all five of our classes and finished a major Championship today.

Hmmmm....don't have anything like what you described on my 2014 2552.  Got a picture?

The LED spool just arrived today.  I quickly powered them up to a 12v battery to confirm the tone is a warmer white color.  I will likely wait until the switches arrive before diving in.

It seems you could simply adhere the strip of LEDs to the back side of bottom cabinet lips to offer a very tasteful lighting condition.  The lights would shine down and to the adjacent wall, but not directly inward.  You'd need to dress the wiring to them.

We have the factory installed interior LED light package in our 2014 Model 2350. My question concerns the really nice strip lights with pressure-sensitive switches that are installed under the cabinets and over the bed. During the two days we spent in the Elkhart area in May when we picked up the unit, we noticed the strip lights sort of had a mind of their own. They would go on and stay on for random periods of time--seconds, minutes, maybe even until we turned them off ourselves. We had two units replaced at the factory before we headed west, but we found they acted the same. We did find that the switches (if that is the problem) seemed to work better as we got farther west hinting that, like us, they might be happier west of the Rockies! The problem, however, has not completly gone away. Has anyone else had this problem with the LED lights?
