Did you mount the LEDs to the ceiling or the slide? How did you run the wires? I was thinking about doing this but wasn't sure where to run wires and get power easily.

Soft. I had some foam board I attempted to cut but the area being covered has too much framing and orifices to contend with. The 'run-of-the-mill' 2" soft foam I had left over from another project was easy to cut and join together. Placed a foam layer under the top panel too. Came out better than expected.

To the wall behind the slide trim. I ran the wires behind the adjacent pantry and down to the compartment that houses my converter and power distribution panel. Spliced into the 15 amp fused wire that feeds the existing ceiling lights. If your distribution panel is on the other side of the coach, I'm unsure of where you'd pick up 12 volts. Maybe the slide overhead lights themselves?

Where did you get the vents for your roof that close? I have been wanting to this for a while.

How did you attach the peg board to the wall?

Self tapping screws with flat washers into the aluminum framing.

I'll probably add a couple stainless steel hooks below the bumper in order to secure tie downs when the bikes are mounted.

Any chance you could post a couple pics of how / where the hitch was welded onto the trailer. Was it welded to the frame, or to the two extensions the 'bumper' is attached to ? I need to do something similar to our 243BHS, but it looks like the underbelly needs to come down to attach anything directly to the frame.

Thanks !
