PS when I do run out of mods, Jim, it will for sure be a kick in the butt black day.
Myron now that I see your beautiful table again . Hope you don't mind .. I wanted to change my table too . .so I want to borrow your idea , different colors but same idea , make a new table and get all the paint cans out , I have a lot of blues , etc. , let the paint go where she goes. Hope you don't have a copyright . You have very creative mods . Pat

Thanks, Pat. Get yourself a lambs wool pad, probably in Home Depot paint dept, wrap around a piece of 2x4, and dab away. That was my secret and I'm sticking to it.

Decided our one over-the-bed reading light needed an upgrading to two.

Was a tad more than I wanted to pay, ($37) but was very pleased to find these attractive, well built, matching LED’s on eBay. I first took down the factory installed center lamp under the cabinet and ran 2 wires from it to each corner. I wasn’t going to run my wires up into the cabinet space. Unscrewed the window valance and unsnapped the rollup shade. Wires could be hidden behind them. The two reading lamps also needed a wood base for threading wires. Fortunately there is plenty support framing up behind the thin oak plywood for firmly attached wood screws.

The most difficult aspect of this job turned out to be the instability of having to do it while bouncing away on the mattress.

nice job, Myron....I know working on the bed in a 19' is not the best situation. Neither is working underneath it pleasant.

Both of you can quit your whining, neither of you have spent the last couple of days packing wheel bearings etc. in zero degree weather.

Good job Myron, much better for reading. Must do the same one of these days. Looks like they're a warm white?

Very nice Myron . You do nice mods .Update- I did watch the movie as I said I would do about ,Jackson Pollack . I just haven't gotten my piece of wood yet .Didn't have a big enough piece on hand . I did cut my table down for right now . See if I like that size better . It still makes a bed just cut the front down . It makes the trailer look much bigger and is easier to get in drivers side . I still want to make mine own table (Myron 's (Jackson Pollack ) table . It will happen doing other projects right now . Pat
