Electrical

WE STARTED WITH BLOWN FUSES,
CORRODED BULB BASES,
BURNT OUT OR MISSING BULBS,
BUNDLES OF FRAYED-EDGED WIRES,
SCREW-ON CONNECTORS, AND —

“MORE DOESN’T WORK THAN WORKS,” HE SIGHED.


We have huge plans for our electrical system! From KC fog lights to Hella headlights to LED upgrades to a vintage Helphos spotlight (courtesy Andy’s dad — Thanks, medad!) to added rock lights to new fuse boxes — okay, I’ll try to contain myself. In short: We are super excited about this phase of our RV restoration.
