Reading Lights -
On the wall above our heads in the bed, Joe installed aircraft reading lights.
Storage bench and book shelf
- We tore out the extra chair next to the door and built a storage bench
complete with padded, hinged cover and bookshelf. It is wonderful
and so much more useful than that chair!
More outlets - Under the
table, in the side of the back bench seat, Joe installed a telephone jack,
a 110 volt outlet and two 12 volt outlets.
Outlets put in
with the help of Russ and Chris. From left, 110 volt; 2 - 12
volt outlets; and a phone jack.
Front Laptop holder - In
the cab, directly behind the center hump, Joe installed a Gamber Johnson
NotePad III laptop mounting system with articulating arm. This holds
and locks in Joe's Toshiba laptop.
GPS - Joe's laptop holds
the TravRoute CoPilot 2001 GPS system. This system will give
turn-by-turn navigation instructions just by putting in an address.
It revises the course as I deviate from its instructions. The system
also has a conversational mode that listens and speaks as an interface.
Rear Camera - The laptop
will also hold the visual for the camera which is mounted on the rear
(when it is working).
Wheel Chock's - Two
wheel chock's were installed, one for each motorcycle.
Back hanging fixes -
Lots of little things were done in the back garage. Hooks were installed to
hold the motorcycle side luggage. They are strapped to the side of
the RV, this makes more room between the bikes. Joe took out the
long poles under the storage compartments. They tended to be in the
way. He cut them and installed short hanging poles in the front on
each side. This allows us to hang a small garment bag on each side
between the front tire of the bike and the side.
Bike Rack - On April 6,
Christine's Dad, John, helped Joe put a one of a kind bike rack on the RV.
Designed by Joe and John, and put together by John, it is perfect.
It holds 2 bicycles. It locks into closed position and swings open
easily, so as not to interfere with the the opening of the ramp.
