Loving the work you're doing @Pac-Man

Your thread gave me the inspiration for a forward pull out bed and loved how cosy it looked!

Loving the black and silver contrast, I do love the modified T5.1s in silver, just something about them I love! I was looking at those tail lights to begin with for my van! Youve really made me think what I want for tail lights! Them or the 6.1 lights!

How difficult was it to add the vinyl to your existing units?

I got the kitchen pod in and blew some fuses. Time to strip out all the old bodged wiring and start with fresh wiring make sure everything has its own fuse and not sharing with other stuff. I should of done that when it was out anyway instead of wasting time tidying up old dodgy wiring.

I'm thinking of putting a 10 or a 12way fuse board in ours just so everything has its own dedicated fuse and maybe a couple of spares....but no matter how many times i count up i'm not gonna have 'that' many circuits off my leisure battery .:unsure:

yes making something today just to get it working but was thinking of getting 10 way fuse board myself and splitting everything via that to make life easier and safer it something wants to play up.

Need to order something like this. Just one live wire to the panel from the leisure battery then feed all your fused lives from that to your fridge, TV, USB ports, 12V cig lighter, lights, water pump, electric water tap etc. No need for LED blade fuses with this sort of board either as they have a red led light that glows if one pops.

You can get some that have a central point for the earth and all the earth feeds too.

It is impressive when seeing you guys talking about electrics, as I've said in the past I knowing very little about this and so tend to steer clear of it, I can't even get 2 lengths of led's to work with pug and play connectors and cabling, all the above is so far over my brain box :unsure:
Looking forward to seeing the updated furniture back in 👍

Kitchen pod is finally in. Now fully wrapped, added a small splashback on the top and rewired the entire Kitchen pod with fuses. Added 2 new USB 3.0 Fast charge ports giving 4 USB at 18w 3amps with on/off switch so its not always live.

Need to wrap the TV bezel and the kiravans sliding door store matt white and rebuild the wall storage pods and colour code them also.

Black curtains will have to go for something lighter, grey/white theme coloured

oh and that floor matt has gotta go lol

That looks awesome mate, very homely 👍 I added a back splash to my worktop, makes a nice addition and helps hide the curtain rail.
I've got grey curtains from THQ, would tie in nicely with your theme.

Cheers mate, yes some quality grey curtains would work. Considering making my own.......i say me....i mean the wife.

Changed a few furnishings to make the new colour theme work better

Complete redesign of the wall pods, change of curtains, vinyl wrap for the TV is next on the cards.

After that will look into changing the floor carpet and roof lining. Got a cool idea that i can make to redesign the roof.

Thanks (y)

Yes and me, have you picked the fuseboard your going with, also where are you going to install yours ?

I want mine out the way of sight but easy enough to access if you need to change one.

😂 I was look at this thinking "shark, fish, box...man"? :unsure:
All looking very cool mate, what's the plan for the ceiling then?
I really need / want to get my ceiling lights in and working...working being the issue currently.
I'd say matt grey for the tv, white can be a little to clinical.
