David, great job.  Looks real nice.   

Question, the backsplash, is that real ceramic that you used?
              And did the writing table come from PC, or is that an addition you added?

Keep up the good work... Lots of good idea's.

Three votes for HD, one for Comfort and one for Koni. We returned from our vacation trip this week, driving from Washington state down through Oregon and Northern California on US101. This highway in Southern Oregon and Northern California is well past its sell by date, rough and crumbly. The ride on the old Ford shocks was terrible: vibrating and swaying. I sure don't want that same ride on new shocks, so I hesitate to pick the HD option, but I also don't want to spend all that money and not get better handling. Sigh.

We were going to order the chairs in a neutral beige to match the original chairs. The pictures I took do not do the burgundy justice, they look much better than they look on the forum.

I was reluctant to pick such a distinctly different color, it helped that the company we purchased them from sent us samples of the material before we ordered. We were considering burgundy and hunter green.

We think the color looks great with the other beige colors in the coach. The chairs that came with the cruiser are very nice but we had these Flexsteel captains seats in our previous motorhome and really liked them.

I replaced a couple of the pictures on this post with some that show the chairs a bit better.

I'm glad you like them.

Wow!  What a beautiful difference the tile and chairs make in the interior color palette.  Love it!  Now I'm going to have to add a tile backsplash to my wish list...

Smart money says not to run the Fridge on 12VDC. Either AC or Propane, which won't kill the charging system/ignition of the engine on the road (which has happened to me more than once).

We also had a 3 way Dometic in our LTV Free Spirit LSS.   Wish our PC had one.

My first motorhome, an EZ Ryder (made in California) had a 3-way refrigerator. Thought then that all RVs had 3-way refrigerators.  It was great.

Interesting posts.  Thanks to all.

In a recent trip to New Mexico we boondocked three weeks.  For a couple of days it rained and our solar was not as effective as normal.  It works pretty well for us with just four or five hours direct exposure.  In any event, I got the same default signal, checked the gas, checked the normal stuff...most of what I checked was mentioned in the posts above.
Lo and behold, my batteries were discharged but only to about 11.7%, which is still a significant discharge in percentage of 100% charge.  Solution was simple.  I started the chassis motor and ran it for a few minutes, got a quick shot on the coach batteries and fired up the genset.  Ran it for an hour.  No more problems with the refrigerator.  

These newer refrigerators have their advantages.......and disadvantages.  Personally, I think they are much more "picky" than they were a few years ago.   Read your manual on leveling.  I forgot what ours calls for, but it seems way to tight a spec for me.  Our old Dometic in our 2007 Roadtrek would freeze up the refrig on a low setting when it was several degrees out of level.  

The lesson for me:  my refrig defaults at a battery drain of just a little under 12 volts, apparently.  

By the way, my refrigerator is two way only.  I do miss the DC setting on my old refrig.

Ron and Barry,

Your directions really helped me remove the door.  When it was off and placed down on the bed, I could see and feel that the door already has the metal hinge in place.

Before taking the door off I felt totally confident that the hinge was made of plastic, but all that I could really see was the very edge of the hinge.

Anyway, this discovery made the job very easy.  Just reinstall the door and be done with it.   LOL

Thanks again for your help.

Beautiful work Dave.  And Ron, given how much you enjoy tinkering with your PC, it would probably be a vacation from a vacation!
