Preliminary Final Winter Addition List (Update 3)

After the initial spring, summer and now fall camping seasons in the Montana, we are compiling the winter season project list for myself and the dealer. Some are needed, some are wanted, but it looks like all will be done. Some are noteworthy as they have resulted from Forum input. Regardless here is what we will have done before Spring:
1) Installation of 2nd AC with heat strip. Dealer is currently installing 13,500 low profile
2) Installation of internal Autoformer and Surge Guard with bypass hookup for generator usage.Sitting in garage awaiting install
3)Purchase and permanent truck installation of Kipor 3000 generator (finally convinced me Dave(Dsprik)). Sitting in garage
4)Installation of new kitchen faucet to enable quick connect with Vesta Dishwasher. Complete - see Thanksgiving Faucet Relacement Post
5)King Size 4" Memory Foam (Before Thanksgiving).Done
6)300 psi High-Flow DC Air Compressor (waiting for Harbor Freight sale). Purchased at $49.99 at HF - raised Monty tires from 65 psi to 80 in about three minutes each
7)CB radio with antenna for TV. Done but will be changing antenna
8)Extended Warranty for Montana. Purchased from dealer, six additional years of insurance with no deductible
9)Wheel casters for OEM recliners.
10)Garbage can slide out tray (Lowes has a nice one that I looked at this weekend).
11)Cabinet slide out trays (again Lowes).
12)Step stool for upper cabinet access.
13)Cabinet enclosure to be built for Vesta Dishwasher.
14)Construction of 8" Round wooden plugs with water hose and coax cable access for Convenience Center circular openings (mouse entryway prevention).
15)This number is reserved for other forum-induced ideas!!!! LOL. Basement electric outlet now added alond with external coax hookup for second Directv cable input, new project will be rear view camera installation - other Forum ideas still under consideration also

Updates as listed
2nd set of updates
3rd set of updates

Daggone, here goes a pile of coffee can change!!! Oh well, we knew this was an expensive hobby!!

Bingo and Cathy - Our adventures begin in the hills of WV. We are blessed by our 2014 3850FL Big Sky (previous 2011 3750FL and 2007 3400RL) that we pull with a 2007 Chevy Silverado Classic DRW CC dually.

Bingo, one thing you might consider instead of the casters for the recliners are the stick on pads to put under furniture. They come in packs of 4 at Lowes. We put them on ours and they work great. The casters would have raised our chairs too high for us.

You'll be happy with that Kipor, Bingo. Sounds like you will be all set for spring camping.

Bingo - you are having way too much fun with this!

I'm particulary interested in how your docking station plug and garbage can tray turn out (Our trash can is where the lazy suzan is and was hoping for somthing that will slide both into the kitchen and out into the hall through the other side of the cupboard).

Did you relocate your little side shelves by the bed to get that 4" king foam to fit?

4" Foam Topper from Walmart was evidently measured with a ruler made in China. It did fit under the side shelves (barely). We keep our garbage in the last cabinet towards the living room, it is accesible from the kitchen under the sink, but the tray installation will slide out towards the large slide however. The worst part of all this fun is I haven't started yet. Dealer is installing 2nd AC and hopefully resolving the shower leak, then my part will begin on the weekends (rig is kept next door to dealer in mini-storage). I am anxious to get the new plug in too to see how the generator will work while pulling. Reservations for the summer are underway....3 weeks at Pirateland or Lakewood in Myrtle for last week of July on..Virginia MOC rally after Labor Day and Gettysburg rally after Memorial Day to go along with a few other local outings. All wintertime camping is done via the forum as is yours!! Ha Ha.
