Where did you find the hardware for the flip-up shelf? I need to put in two of those.

I will share how to cope with the unbearable heat. Air conditioners for motorhomes are expensive, so I use household climate control equipment, which, if properly selected and installed, can be even more efficient and several times cheaper. Tested in practice, and I want to share my experience. First of all, monoblock devices are suitable: mobile and window air conditioners. When purchasing a mobile one for your RV, remember that there are some nuances. This concerns model selection and installation. To maintain a healthy microclimate, you need a device with a power of 1.2 kW. (depends on the size of the RV, thermal insulation, etc.) It is also necessary to consider the energy efficiency indicator. This coefficient can be 3.2 and higher (class A). Pay attention to fan performance and noise level. The peculiarity of these air conditioners lies in the fact that all of its components - the compressor, the throttle, heat exchangers (condenser and evaporator), and the fan (one or two) - are combined in one housing. To maintain an optimal microclimate, there are three to four lattice openings and a corrugated hose in mobile systems, which serves to remove hot exhaust air outside an RV through a window or openings in the wall.
I found more information at this site, it might be useful

My TT didn't have a light on the side where all the utilities are connected so I added one as shown in this video

It's installed in the fridge vent, which has easy access to power.

I added a keyless entry door handle / lock recently. Here's a video of the project

I got it from www.rvlocksandmore.com which which is the OEM supplier for most TT door locks. I also had the key match the cargo compartment locks I ordered from them as well.

Those portable A/C units are sort of useless for an RV application. For all the hot exhaust air that's blown out of the RV, an equal amount of hot outside air needs to be drawn in from the outside.
