The drawer slides work well, but I overloaded the under fridge drawer and the bottom started dropping out. No problem. I had a bunch of small nails.
The outside speakers sound terrible, as does the Jensen stereo in mine. I'd like to upgrade to a high quality car stereo system, with all new speakers. And maybe a subwoofer, too. Does your radio have only one speaker, like it shows in the schematic?

I guess the second battery setup is my project for tomorrow. Need a box, wire and appropriate sized connectors.

Thanks for the schematic. It will be very helpful, but it doesn't quite match mine. My power controller has slots 3-10 filled, with the only open slots being 1 and 2. (just 2 now)

I have one speaker over the bathroom sink/bunk area and one over the sofa. I have the TV hooked to the AUX input and play the TV through it, but have to turn it just to the front after the kids go to bed. Does not sound too bad....

Sounds like I didnt miss much on the outside speakers though...I was concerned that they would annoy they neighbors anyway....I just want to get a small set of speakers to hook to my iphone and I think I will be happy...

The stereo in mine, a Jensen with 2 speakers leaves much to be desired. And the FM reception is just lousy, only real close stations come in clear. Anyone else have that problem?

YES!

The CD player sounds just barely OK, but radio reception is terrible. I guess I need another upgrade.

I wonder if it's because of a crappy antenna installed on the trailer. You'd think that even our Jensens would pick up more radio stations than they do with a decent antenna.

I do the same idea using a small output PSW INVERTER just for the home entertainment center items like the HDTV,DVD, Small lamp, outside motion detector, NOAH WX radio. cell phone charger, computer charger, etc. I use a 400W PSW inverter hardwired into the battery just inside the trailer cabinet closest to the battery bank (about 5-feet from battery bank switch). Then I run an extension cord from the Inverter to where ever I need the 120VAC power. All installed out of sight

Being a Ham Radio Guy I am always needing more 12VDC Taps - I also use on of these sub-panels connected directly to a 12VDC source at the BatterySwitch. This unit has six fused connections that can feed more 12VDC items.

BLUESEA 5025 - Amazon.com

I usually have two or three Ham Radio units or scanners connected to this sub-panel mounted close to the area where my radios are located. I would feed this sub-panel with a 4 AWG good ANCOR brand quality battery cable.

I think all of my 12VDC cirucits in the Power distribution Center are all used for something.

BLUE SEA is a great manufacturer of marine quality 12VDC electrical products. Been using them for years...
