Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

yes, i was thinking to use it for supporting wiring and water pipes.i also thought it might be useful for attaching furniture, cabinets etc as the seat rail is pretty strong. he portions of it that end up interfering with my plan i figure can be cut off with an angle grinder. here are some photos from the bedroom. the phone doesn't take good photos though

I looked for some holes in the the roof framing and i don't think you are going to have much luck with running wire. The holes on mine are abit sporadic in spacing and are only about the width of a pencil. the only way i could see it happening is by expanding the existing holes with a large drill bit which would pretty much require digging into the metal roof skin.

thanks Sam,

here are some pictures of my solar panel i got from ebay. as you guys can see there was an impact on the back of the panel that fractured the glass and probably one of the cells. its an 80W 5A panel that they say they tested and still puts out 40W 1.8A. this would make sense with the sun loss from the fractured glass and the broken cell. i bet i can bypass/replace the broken cell and replace the glass if i can figure out how to take the panel apart.

Looks good in and out. What did you use to replace the glass and what are the two Coleman green boxes in the pic? Jack

18 GA cold rolled steel. i trimmed the corners with a dremmel and a cut off wheel. i drilled and screwed it to the frame, and used silicone to seal it. the 2 boxes are actually fresh water tanks that i have yet to install. i had to clean up alot of glass. weirdly, one side was tempered glass and one was safety glass. i plan to insulate both inside frames, then carpet over them both so that they are no longer noticeable.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

here is an interior lock solution for my interior side door. it works pretty good. the door is latched tight. and this thing wont come out until i press the little blue button on the back it has 2 little pins toward the end that you cant see in the pic that retract when you press it.. other than this i spent the weekend insulating the back windows and re caulking specific windows in an attempt to track down a leak.
