After vising with Stan today, we came home and started working on the 299's slide room. The couch was removed, as well as it's support frame. I also removed the windows, that were above the couch. We are trying to keep the dinette as intact as possible, so we will have to remove the siding and the screws holding the dinette to the wall.
I removed the wallboard that was behind the couch and on the front sidewall of the slide. We took some pictures, to help everyone understand how the slide is constructed. I also removed both the DC and AC slide room junction boxes. The AC power cord to the slide, is the standard 10/2 stranded power cord. There was a junction box in the front wall cabinet and it's mate was in the outside wall of the slide. On with the pictures.
This is where the AC junction box was, in the front wall cabinet:
Here's where both junction boxes were, in the outside wall of the slide. I had already removed the AC wire in this pic. It was run up through the small piece of steel conduit and then over towards the dinette. The DC wires that were connected to the ones shown, were routed straight up to the wall light and then go towards the dinette.
This is the front corner of the slide, with the exterior walls exposed. I was surprised to find that the end wall of the slide is made of coated luan. The other wall is the aluminum siding.
This view is the framing construction, along the wall of the slide. Looks very sturdy!
This view shows the flange around the inside of the slide, with all of the fascia boards removed.
There will be more to come, but we simply ran out of time today.
