(I show the shower box installation on another thread) I also installed a Spray-A-Way spray port on the right side of the camper.

    Outside Shower Installation

    2017 Bighorn 3575EL When we camp with the grandkids at the lake with only water and electric hook-up, I thought an outside shower would be an asset. They can fill up a grey tank real fast!

    Kitchen Window Bighorn 2017 3575EL

    I know many Heartland RV's have this kitchen window. I was thinking if it would open it would increase air flow through the camper when other windows are open. Has anyone replaced this window with one that will open? I would be interested in any information on this project.

    Residential Refrigerator Conversion

    You are correct I used the wrong terminology, 3500 watt would be a huge converter. I have a 80 amp converter and a 3500 watt inverter. :rolleyes:

    Residential Refrigerator Conversion

    I have a 3500 watt converter installed now on a transfer switch for the whole camper. I'll need to check and see if the refrigerator outlet is on a separate breaker.

    Sailun ST235/85R16 S637 Date Code

    Interesting the date code on the tires is August 2016, the MFG date on the camper is November 2016, so they didn't sit on the shelf for very long. They are Sailun S637 tires, which seem to have a good experience reputation. I use the Bighorn April to November and store it inside, with the tires...

    The drain hose is clear and the plug is in place. We are home so the refrigerator is not being open and closed at this time. I defrosted it again and in two days it is getting a frost build up. It does not have an ice maker.
