Nice Job.

On our old class B, I installed similar shelving. There was only thin 'cardboard' to mount the brackets, but the floor at the bottom was quite solid. I sat the vertical standards on the floor so the vertical load on the shelves would be supported by the floor, not the fasteners in the 'cardboard.'

Re Shelf Bouncing etc.: Although it would hinder easy shelf adjustments, you could add a support (block. screw, etc.) on the backside of that center post between the doors. It would be out of the way and virtually invisible.

I have to admit, I was very leery about ordering and doing this at first but this was one of the easiest mods so far on my Jayco 29.5.

I ordered the "inline dimmer and remote" seen in the pics from Amazon similar to this one shown here (not sure if this is where i got it!?): Robot Check
I am pretty sure it came from China as it took 4-5 week to receive it.

Installed it on the wires just under the plastic cover plate under the awning arms going up the side wall, outside, of 5th Wheel (see pics). Sealed up the wires and inline with some caulk, replaced the plate and Bob is now your uncle! (PS- Make sure if you do this mod to install the wires in the right directions marked on the "inline")

Note: This might not be the best solution for a dimmer as you still need the remote to dim the lights but it remembers the last setting you used and was by far the easiest (and probably cheapest) that i have seen!

Steve

PS - Apologies for hijacking this post but figured since a few have asked
Did you go color for color on the wires? Just splice them together? I ordered this just now. It cost me 2.51 with free shipping....normally 25.00

LOL, I ordered mine a few hours ago myself. In fact, I already got the notice, it's been shipped. But delivery is expected between May 9th - 26th.
Must be coming over on a boat.

Sweet! Yup >Colour for colour. As I said, just make sure that you connect the module in the proper direction (written on module). Only connects one way from your switch towards your LEDs. You will see it when you get it. Good luck (but you won't need any!)

I am finally getting around to posting pics of an install that I did. I installed a wired/wireless camera on the rear of the camper. I ran the cable behind the plastic molding that covers all of the screws. The cable runs under the camper held in place by plastic P clips and zip ties, to the large front compartment behind the propane by the driver side landing gear. In there is where I spliced into the running lights for power and installed a wireless transmitter. Then in the truck I installed the other wireless transmitter that is hooked up to my in-dash radio/dvd receiver. The radio has a camera option so I can watch the camera and still listen to music, xm, or ipod.

Here are a couple pics i will upload more later.

Nice use of channeling to hide the wires, that came out really nice. I presume you'll caulk the heck out of it too.

On a related note I've had to fix quite a bit of caulking (or lack of) on my trailer. What they did put on was so thin a few of the door trim edges managed to pull away from it, letting water in. Had to do that to 5 or 6 different areas of trim so far.

Yeah I caulked the heck out if it for sure I will get some more pics up later I don't think I have any with the finished product yet. But I will say it is nice having a camera, especially if you have bikes on the back or like us we like to pull our quad behind the camper as well, to keep an eye on things while going down the road.

I haven't noticed any areas that had pulled away yet but I will being doing a good look around tonight, as we are leaving with it in the morning for a 4 night trip.
