      current
      Thanks.Built a box (shroud) to fit around the rear of AC.Mounted an exhaust fan in shroud to turn on (using a current relay) when AC cycles on.Fan will blow hot air out through a vent in the floor using 6 inch flex duct
      from fan in the shroud.Will post assembled pictures when put it all together.Picture below.

          Nice plan! I've seen people in the Scotty groups handle it different ways. The fan with the relay is smart.

              Thanks.When AC is set on economy the AC blower turns off also and the current relay drops out the exhaust fan on shroud.No sense in it running continuous.

                Following photos show linear actuator to adjust the bed angle allowing comfortable reading or relaxing position.Control switches are up/down and center switch to turn on a reading light overhead.The control circuitry is tucked away under wheel well cover

                    That linear actuator is a great idea that I might have to steal sometime! Is it a kit with the controls and actuator, or items purchased separately?

                      Thanks. It was pretty easy to do. The components were bought seperate but I think you can buy a kit.

                        Back to the drawing board!While working in the trailer with air conditioner on for an extended time I found the exhaust blower was not moving enough air to vent the heat out causing the compressor to shut off.Installed a different blower to move more air.Definitely moving more air.Hope this does the trick.

                            Used some LVP plank on the floor.A bit heavier than linoleum but only took a couple of boxes.Only used in walking areas.

                                    Didn't have any room above counter {due to windows}.Found these pop up outlets that raise and retract.Put one on each side of the sink. Click image for larger version

                                      Not sure if a recessed sink would be too low with the counter height so used this vessel style sink with a waterfall faucet. Click image for larger version

                                        Used a small 1.5 gallon electric water heater with quick disconnects to remove and drain.Gotta build some doors to hide everything. Click image for larger version

                                            Added a shelf above the counter.Installed 3 small lights underneath and outlet on top for a toaster oven maybe.Not planning to put anything heavy on it but seemed a little saggy so used some shower rod holders from ceiling to shelf.

                                              Found this induction surface unit with 2 burners.Can be used on countertop or cutout and flush with countertop.Haven't decided which yet.Usually cook outside so if sitting on counter would be easier to use outside.
                                              Haven't cooked on it yet but it'll boil a pot of water lickity split! Click image for larger version

                                                    Thanks for the compliments Marilyn and Mark and others.Some people have detailed CAD drawings and spread sheets but I just winged it.Built a teardrop a few years ago and definately overthought it! So
                                                    tried not to over think this project.Sold teardrop a couple of years ago just too small for us now. Click image for larger version
