Thanks Accordion, i just wish i had made them a Little smoother,but they aren't too bad in person. I'm wondering if i should pant the bottom side of the cabinet underneath as well, and if i should use the blue or a white for that.

I like the idea of using the metal 90 degree strip as the attachment for upper cabinets to the ceiling. hmmm.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

i did more work on the cabinet. the plywood was bowed so i made things more difficult on myself. the one next to the cabinets wasn't a problem as the cabinets straightened out the bow one it was screwed down, but the stand alone one on the other side was a pain i should have used studs, i would have lost some space but it would be easier. i cant wait to get the fridge and microwave and converter in there.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

i completed the first shelf that will hold the fridge. it is strong as hell, i think i overdid it. I'm using the chair rail as part of the support. i can stand in it and jump up and down and it doesn't even creak. once i line it up. cut the vent holes. bolt it down i can add the shelves in for the microwave and power converter, then the plywood front.









i also took a meter to my power converter and figured it out. all DC and AC works. however one of the romex wires remained energized as it was bypassing the breakers. im not sure why they did that. i began removing the romex and replacing it with 20 Amp computer power cable wire, im looking for 30A wire to replace the power input romex with.



i tested it by temporarily hooking up to 15A






1st computer power cable:

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

i built a 30A power cable tonight out of 2 used pieces. i had a 30A cable and plug, and i also had a Marinco weather tight connector with a cut cable piece inside it. the hardest part was removing the yellow rubber boot to get access to the connector. i ordered a new Marinco input socket that this connector fits into to be installed in the side of the bus

i finished up the AC wiring to the Converter. the yellow wire is 10AWG 30A AC wiring.the wires going out are 20A computer power cord wires, 12AWG. now i need to clean up the DC fuse box and wiring install the converter box and outlets for it and it should be good to go.
