    Replaced my old mechanical thermostat with a digital one.

    Just two red wires..............One is "Hot", the other goes to the furnace "W"

    The "Hot" wire connects to "R", and the Furnace-trigger wire connects to "W".
    Super Easy!

    This one uses two "AAA" batteries for temp reading, operation, and memory settings.
    Tested and works perfect!

    Added 32-gallons of grey-water storage under the Camper.

    Also added a bit of usability to the inside shower.
    Main complaints were that the handheld shower hose was too short, and there was no good way to mount it up higher (wife was using a bungee-cord hung from the ceiling).

    Bought a 7-foot shower hose at Home Depot, and now it reaches the ceiling.
    Also bought a 72" Tension-Rod to go from the shower/toilet enclosure to the ceiling, and mounted the hook for the handheld to it.
    Now when you are ready to use it, you just tension it vertically to the ceiling and hang the shower wand on it.
    Did not get any pictures of that mod though. My wife will be happier, and that's what matters most :)

    Not to hijack your thread, but your interior pics look just like a woodgrain version (ours is all white) of our starcraft centennial 3606, but your pics of the underside show a leaf spring axle setup, while ours has a torsion spring axle. I had no idea they made both.

    Ours is the "RT" series, which are pretty beefy frame underneath and lifted axle setup with big 16" wheels/tires.
    I have taken it "Off-road" a few times.

    Great mods! I'm jealous of all that clearance. Any worries about the axle hitting the tank under articulation?
