Very nice! Where did you buy the flexible fiberglass?

Either Lowes or Home Depot. They both have a section with a few different types and sizes.

I happened to already have some from replacing a screen window in my house a while back.

Check your water pumps, just found out mine was never screwed down, just floating around in there. Picture doesn't really show it too well. Easy fix just 4 screws and washers

Check your AC too. Apparently washers are in short supply at the Jayco factory.

Thanks Tom, I'll check mine. The more you 'poke' around the more we scratch our heads. Just glad I can fix most of these minor issues myself.

Yup a tape measure and level appear to be optional for the workers. We spend good money for these units and things are randomly spaced and crooked plus half of the screws are stripped.

But once you're around the campfire with a whiskey you realize to not let it bother you. Overall they are very nice with a few annoyances.

Last but not least, converted to a 50A service box for plugging in at home (wired back to a 30A breaker in the main panel)

Tom, I think our wife's have been talking. My DW just asked me over the weekend to make her a Cutting Block to go over the stove too. I'm hoping the 'projects' end soon and Real camping begins! This Thursday can come soon enough!
These look great!
