Added electric fireplace

This is by far the best mod yet to the fifth wheel.
After getting the TV installed last week, I looked at the huge cabinet under the TV and knew that an electric fireplace would look awesome there.

Everything was screwed together, so I can take it back to original in less than a half hour.

First pic is the "before"

Here is the building process. The fireplace is only 7 inches deep, so this would work in the newer cabinets that aren't nearly as deep as the ones built for tube TV's.

Frame is simple 1x2's secured by angles and screws.

That is awesome! When we get a new TT we will order a fireplace. Or if we go to a Class C room for one will be mandatory. I want to get to New England (and many more places) in the Fall of the year. A fireplace just helps to make a RV look and feel like home.

Smart Lady
Going into fall (someday) it will look so nice and feel so good on a damp chilly evening. Congrats on a really nice up-grade
