After unfortunate experiences with a battery when dry camping, we added a digital volt meter connected directly to the battery. I bought it on Ebay and fitted it into the panel under the closet next to the genny control. I had to move that over a little.

I found that the means of retaining the ladder a nuisance so I replaced the pins with Pip Pins. These are spring loaded and retained by small balls. You just press the top which releases the balls and you pull it out. It is retained by a wire lanyard and is available from race car suppliers. I also found a step ladder at Home Depot that fits exactly behind the ladder, resting on the lower supports and held against the back of the PC ladder with a bungee cord.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me and I will be happy to help.

BillRo,

Replying to all your posts, especially on interior enhancements.....I Love Them!  I really enjoy interior creativity, and you've done some real nice things that have me thinking if we could benefit from a few of them.

Thanks for sharing!

About your comments on how the factory is cooperative with an owner of a 6 year old model, making available such doors and what-not, to help the owner with their ideas on interior enhancements.  How do we explain that to someone outside the PC family?  They don't believe me when I share such stories.

Hi Billy,

The Voltmeter is by DRCO, 0-199V/Amps with a shunt - DavidRiddle.com 1-800-544-3746. If you go to his site and do a search on Voltmeter it pops right up. $89

BillRo:

Nice fixes.  I found the pins under "ball lock pins" - they are 1/4 inch diameter and have a grip length of 1 inch.  Amazon.com jas them and 6 inch lanyards - couldn't find any shorter lanyards.

Thanks!
