Until I find any wiring harness diagram in my possession I can tell you about a fantastic deal I just got on eBay for some windows.
I found a guy parting out a shuttle bus and is selling me all the windows and doors for 600 clams. There are more than I need so I can sell some and recoup some of the cost but what is left has turned out to be the perfect window and enclosing solution for my project.
I've been struggling with the whole window decision anyway, knowing the old salts say get rid of the crap, to which I agree. I do like the look of the stock windows but also appreciate their lack of screens, sealing, and security. I've searched for suitable window replacements for months, knowing the re-enclosure effort after the roof raise will depend heavily on them, not to mention the floor layout.
What I've found on craigslist and ebay are a bunch of mismatched windows that left me underwhelmed and frustrated. I didn't like having to chance my way into hopefully finding windows of good quality that matched reasonably well so the final product doesn't look too awful.
Then I found this deal on ebay and realized what a superb solution it will be. I was able to rework my layout a little to accommodate them and found that I can and it will work out beautifully. I'll get:
7 - 36x36
1 - 36x42
2 - 22x24
4 - 12x36
1 34x80 bifold glass entry door
1 48x72 rear side double door
1 38x60 rear door
I'll use four of the 36x36 units up front starting behind the driver's seat and entry door (two on each side) in the living room over the couches. I'll use the 36x42 unit in the galley kitchen on the right side. Then I'll use two more 36x36 units in the very rear in the master bedroom where, conveniently, the last bay is larger than the other bays and ready to receive them as-is.
I'll use the 48x72 double doors singly when I build in the storage below deck. These are hinged the full length and will be perfect access doors. I'll need to remove and cover the smaller window in each. Question: Should I install them with hinges on top or on bottom?
I'm not sure about the rest. I could potentially use one of the smaller windows in the bathroom but I had planned on not having any windows in the bathroom. Thoughts? The bathroom is going to get plenty of insulation all the way around for privacy (as much as can be expected) but I hadn't thought seriously of including a window.
For the five units in the front and in the kitchen I'll have to cut out the structural members that will be in their way and build the rough opening to accept them, obviously. Not that big a deal and totally worth the effort.
They are located six hours from me, so I'll leave at O dark thirty this Saturday morning to get there before noon. Thankfully the seller is going to assist with the removal. Depending on how long that takes I may end up staying in town (on points!) and return home Sunday.
Here they are still attached:
