Re: Wildcat Lodge

And here are the after pics. We attached panelling to the wood we screwed to the wall on top of the chair rail and put a piece the same width running along the floor. Made a chase about 1" thick.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

I really like the way you used the chair rail and covered the bottom "dead zone", a good place to run the wiring! That is going into my bookmark file. Leslie

Re: Wildcat Lodge

I agree with the others, the finish work on the dinette area and all the rest looks mighty fine. Thank you for sharing the pictures.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

Thanks for all the comments. We appreciate your feedback and encouragement.

We made some progress with lighting and electrical today. These pictures are of the electrical cabinet. I added the control panel to the inverter and two switches for the coach lights, one for the driver side and one for passenger side. Also we finished out the breakers for the 110v and 12v wiring.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

Here are some pictures of the lighting which we were able to mostly finish today. I bought the twenty lights (6 singles and 14 doubles) from Class A customs on ebay for about $4 a piece.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

Nice! It's really coming together. Thanks for the link to the lights - if I opt for incandescent lighting I'll probably get these. Half the price of any other lights I've seen.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

My only concerns would be heat (these 12V bulbs get HOT!) and power draw. I'm planning on flourescants or LED's...though I may have a few of those for short-use lights, like in closets.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

Thanks all - We won't be boondocking with this bus so the amp draw was less of a concern than the price and these were cheap. Here are some flooring pics as we are starting to trim out. We trimmed out the steps and insulated under the bunks around the wheel wells.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

We put in the bath vent and fan today. I was quickly reminded to cover up my neck and collar when drilling metal above my head. We drilled the four corner holes and then cut in between. It was good to see all that insulation up there.
