RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

With just vertical loads, I would just screw. Glue the assembly and just screw it in place and allow for some movement as the chassis twists on rough uneven drives. The drawers will still be held firm. Thanks for the posts. :)

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Here we go. Basically, all I needed here is a structure to hold the drawer slides. This area will be all drawers. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/drawerframe5.jpg With the drawers in place, for the most part, all the weight/stress will be vertical. Question for you. Should I glue this assembly to the floor, and the bottom of the counter, or should I just screw it to the floor and bottom of the counter, just in case I decide I want to change it at a later date. If I just screw it in place, I can remove the screws, and pull this assembly out, and replace it with something else. What's your best guess?

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

When I put this assembly together, I could not put the rails all the way at the bottom, because of running into the screws. Therefore, I put them about 1.5" away from the inside edge. This will show up a little better in the picture after this one. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/drawerframe4.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

When assembling a structure, it's important to have a secure way to hold the frame. Just happened to be the correct distance between the counter top and the ceiling! Lol.... http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/drawerframe3.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I've spent some time the last couple of days looking at different options for a couple of things that will be needed during the finishing of this build. One of them is a bottom freezer, top refrigerator. They are made in a 12 volt dc compressor version, that will actually fit in the area that I have available for that purpose. The wife and I much prefer a bottom freezer, since we, like most people, are in and out of the refrigerator way more than the freezer. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/solardcrefer.jpg I have run a a bottom freezer model for 15 years and love it. Also a 12 volt unit. Specs are available HERE! I have run a 12 volt bottom freezer unit for 15 years and love it. So much nicer to get things into and out of it. What brand/size/model do you have? Does it have a Danfoss compressor? I hear they are kind of the cream of the crop. Thanks. Mine is a Nova Kool. Yes, it has a Danfoss compressor. Novakool.com. Their primary market is in boats so most of their dealer are boat places. Thanks for the info. I'll have a look at those.

I also assembled a second set for the rear of the drawer set. At this point I was out of time, so I called it a day. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/drawerframe2.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I started cutting a bunch of framing members for the drawers that will go beneath the passenger side counter top. I have the first set glued and Kreg screwed together. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/drawerframe.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Next area for some drawers. No, that's not a current water leak. That discoloration was from a long time ago, when the roof was not water tight. Hey, I have got to have place to store the Instant Pot, Breadmaker, and a whole bunch of other "must have" appliances. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/nextfordrawers.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I'll show this to the wife, but I think she'll go for the extra counter space to the right of the sink. That will still give us some space to the left of the sink, just not as much. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/sink9.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

What that means is, this size is almost correct. If you can't put a large pan in the sink, what good is the sink? This was my original plan for the location of the sink. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/sink7.jpg After putting this in place, I moved it a little farther to the left, which would give us 48" to the right of the sink, for counter space and food prep. I think I might like that a little better. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/sink8.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Alright, alright, calm down. I am not using that as my new sink! I bought this for something else, not even associated with the sink for the motor home. That said, it did dawn on me, that it would be a great space saver if I could use a collapsible type, but I rather doubt it would hold up over the long term. Here is what we need to put in whatever sink we use, though. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/fryingpan.jpg The pan we use is about 12 inches in diameter, and with the handle, we are looking at about 19 inches in length.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

And here is why I need one about this size. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/sink5.jpg http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/sink6.jpg

Hey! How do you like my new sink??? http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/sink3.jpg http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/sink4.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Remember this????? Rough couple of days. Nothing quite like experiencing lower gastro-intestinal-distress. You know, a little like someone who eats a 1/2 a bag of corn chips at one sitting, and the next morning can't stand up straight! No, I did not do that! Starting to get things under control, I think. Hopefully, within a day or 2, I'll be back at it. Yea, it took more than a couple of days. Ugh. Feeling much better now. Looking like I might be able to get some work done over the weekend.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

How about some nice, cheap, drawer pulls? http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/drawerpulls.jpg Yea, probably not. Lol. Make it a loop and I'd be happy with it... Quite a while back, I had thought about using 1/4" cotton rope, making it into a loop, soaking it in Por 15, which will harden like a rock, then painting it, and using it as a drawer pull. It wouldn't take much Por or paint, and the rope is inexpensive. After looking at some other options, I decided not to do that, although, I think it would actually come out fine, and be durable.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Drawer is now installed, with the 2 French Cleats holding the whole thing in place, and slides nicely in and out, just like it should. The extra holes will cut down on weight :) http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/frenchcleat9.jpg Now that I think about it, I could get out my 4" hole saw, and start really saving some weight! Lol. Thanks for the laugh. :)
