Mahoney at Davis Cabinets
« on: July 17, 2007, 12:41:55 AM »
I am spending the week at Davis Cabinets getting a new dash overhead with 37 in HDTV. Today is deconstruction. After everything is gone, Shaun came in and measured and we decided on details. The evening shift will build the cabinets tonight and Construction will begin on Tuesday.

On July 2, Peninsula Glass in Vancouver WA replaced 3 windows. Illustrated are the before and after of the driver's side window.

On June 30 I got the Silverleaf glass dash installed.

July 5 found me back on the coast for a week and a half. Here is a sunset with the Newport bridge.

LOL Wendy. Given that Davis specializes in cabinetry, I've wondered how they get it all back together when I've seen coaches they've stripped like that. It's not only older coaches - I've seen brand new coaches in there having the same thing done.

Actually I wouldn't be suprised if Davis doesn't do a better job putting it back together than they would at the factory.  I have always been favorably impressed with the capabilities of Davis Cabinets.

Russ,

Thanks for the pics of the new install.

How about a report on the iPhone?

>>Terry has some catching up to do.<<

I have wanted a "Glass dash" for over 9 years....but even at the half price that Russ got it for, I couldn't get Betty interested in parting with some cash.<G>  Now the new TV remodel I will probably get depending on how it looks on Russ's coach.

Harumph! I'll have you know I spent a whole dollar for 6 of those cups!

They actually do a fine job of corralling some of my clutter. I used earthquake putty attach them.

Day 2 at Davis....nothing happened. The deconstructor called in sick. and he is the only one who knows how to put it all back together.

Phil, look for a iPhone review in another msg.

Lets hope it is only a 24 hour bug.  Might be pretty complicated figuring out where everything goes.

Day3
The installer is back. Not much progress visible today. He cut up 2 of my gauge panels and then made holes for them in the new cabinetry. Because there are so many gauges, I get no storage space. He had to put extensions on some of the wires that join items on the same panel that is now cut in two. The curbside panel is in and 2 backer boards on top. The driver's side panel will need some re-cutting tonight. He says there is still a good chance all will be done by tomorrow eve.

Thanks for the update.  Good to hear the installer is back.  Looking forward to photos of the finished product.

Yes! Nobody has yet used it. Will somebody report back to me if the shortcut I say is correct?

Day 4 Not much progress. The largest wood structure is the floor of the overehead that has the holes for the air ducts, dash radio speakers and map light. This will be reused. They carried it in and out several times, measuring, remeasuring, adding and subtracting wood to get it to match up with the new cabinet faces. After they got that satisfactory, They started the same process all over again with a 1/4 inch sheet of plywood to cover the ceiling 25 inches from the new stuff back to where evidence of construction could not be seen.

Day 5 My appt at Carrier is shifted to next week. The greatly modified wood pieces described above are sent out to Countryside Interiors to get reupholstered with a thin layer of foam and surface of pseudo-leather.

The installer putters about with temporary mounting the display panels and laying out the HDMI, and component audio-video cables.

After lunch, the upper dash floor arrives and 2 people shoehorn it into place. Now the rush is on! The bundles of wire get rearranged, circuit boards reinstalled, air handler em-placed and all the octopus arms attached to the outlet vents in the correct holes, dash radio speakers set, map light reattached, blinds screwed down, gauge panels get final reattachment.

Now it is 5:30 in the afternoon and we are read for the final event...The TV is brought in and installed. It fits the cabinet so closely that the attachment bolts must be tightened to pull it into its final resting place. The HDMI cables are first attached as they are inaccessible later.

Power up ... It works with Tivo on first try! Over the air HD is crisply clear and detailed with the batwing antenna still flat on the roof.

The installer, Rick Davis (father of Shaun who is over in Redmond manning the shop booth at "the rally""), and I do a rapid clean up, shake hands and we all depart for the weekend...me without paying up!

I will return in 5 days for the delayed appt at Carriers and to have larger electric blinds installed. Unfortunately, Shaun will have the bill ready by then.

After a fuel up, I departed Junction City at 7:15 PM and got over to Newport by 9 PM just as darkness settled in on a drizzly evening.

Sorry about the periods and spaces in the file names, OSX allows it, so I thought no further.

Very nice installation, looking forward to seeing in for real this winter.

Most folks didn't have a problem with the spaces and periods, but it's a good practice to avoid them in general in file names.

Hi Russ,
  The cabinetry and window and sunset look very nice!
How about mounting some foam rubber on the TV cabinet corners
so it won't hurt as much when I hit my head on it.
Stay cool(not to bad here today)

Back to Davis Cab

   After a pleasant 5 night stay in Newport I am back in Eugene area for the penultimate series of service calls.
 
July 25. Carrier and sons. Drove over from the coast early this AM through mist and fog on the passes into sun in the Willamette valley. They installed the new color back up camera so quickly that I thought I would be done by noon... Hey, I am ever the optimist! Installing the sonar fuel tank sender turned out to be quite complicated.

The fuel tank is behind the front wheels with the sender located in the mid-line. Unfortunately, Carrier and sons do not employ any orangoutangs. Behind the fuel tank is an electronics bay accessed by a hatch in the front wall of bay #1. They had to dismount a bunch of gear from the front wall to access the fuel tank inspection port. So once again it is an hour of overtime.

I used their 30 amp hookup overnight and settled the bill Thursday morning.

Next stop 6 miles north at Davis Cabinet for finishing the 4 items we missed during our rush to get everything done the previous friday evening.

Mike the installer did that quickly and then I settled down to spend the rest of the day and night boondocking in their back lot. Tomorrow I go N to Albany for the Country Coach rally.
