I replied to this the other day and I received a message that an admin would have to approve the posting. It must have been the link to the product. So let me type this up again...

We have (5) Eva-Dry 500 Mini dehumidifiers that require no power when in the field and you can plug in to recharge them when at home. In addition we have (2) Eva-Dry EDV-4000. When parked (site/resort lot/trailhead) we use one in the garage area and one in the house section. These have an automatic mode and run as needed. We leave them plugged in and on full time when the rig is parked (not in use) at home. Moisture is the enemy so we try to do everything to keep it to a minimum.

Final wall panel went in. Was planning two pieces.... Did it in one instead so my hole was off a bit. Trim will cover it. Second dinette bench is in. I am thinking I may pull it back out and shrink it another 1/2"....



The UPS guy must love me.... And I have a very forgiving wife for letting me pile parts in the house. Thats the tank for the heater, 3 gallons, will be mounted outside.


Poop tank and parts are in.


Tried this floor, not doing it for me... It was the only "grey ish" one that was in stock at HD. Will see what else I can find.

I getting tired!

Underlayment going down. Green and red is the same stuff, I just had a piece of the green left and it fit just right there.


Here is where I quit last night. Found some flooring we liked finally. Its a vinyl plank with a "foam" core. Claims to be water proof.


Question on Inveter sizing.

My inverter is rated at 1250 watts, it says it can go 200% for short periods of time (but no real spec)

My coffee maker draws 1260 watts. (Im not sure if its 1260 all the time or not, need to plug it into the kill a watt to find out, im guessing not)

Think this will work or do I need to shop for a larger one???

Yeah its looking really good.... May get out again this weekend. We will see.

A little more progress last night. Gas strut installed on the bed. Only ended up needing one. Seems to work just fine.


Pretty decent storage access. I may put a divider in to keep things from migrating towards the back...

Are you putting in a grey water tank too? I thought the picture awhile ago showing the black tank had just a straight outlet from it to the valve?

Nope, just going to use a 5 gallon jug under the sink.
