Slideouts and Basement Accessories
Meanwhile, while all of this was going on, the slideouts were being built in a separate area.
We saw earlier that the exterior slideout walls were removed from the coach and sent to the slideout
area for further work. Each panel is then fastened to a pair of sides and a floor. The interior of the walls is fitted with plywood and
wall coverings are installed. Any cabinetry now begins to be installed at this time.
While the cabinetry is installed all of the electrical wiring is also run. Once the interior of the slideouts is
complete, fiberglass insulation is applied over the outside of the interior panel, which is already covered with Flex Foil. The completed
slideouts are then placed on carts, ready to be installed into the coach at the
The completed slideout is then mounted to a carrier and hoisted into the coach where it is attached to the heavy
duty rack and pinion slide rail mechanisms. The various electrical connections are them made between the main coach and the slideout.
Once the slideouts are installed, the fiberglass panels previously cut out of the large sidewall sheet are
attached to the slideouts. Adhesive is applied and clamps are installed to hold the panels tight while the adhesive sets.
The exterior entertainment system is installed into the main patio side slideout. The 40" LED TV and all
related connections are installed. The optional freezer and slide tray are
The rest of the basement cargo bay doors and the power lift engine access cover are installed. The
entry door is also installed and electrical connections completed.
Windows are now installed into the coach sidewalls. Final wiring and plumbing connections are made in the interior
at the same time.
Once the cabinets and appliances have been installed a cart full of cabinet doors and drawer fronts arrives.
These are then installed and adjusted. Quartz countertops remain protected by cardboard until the coach arrives at Final Fit and Finish.
Fine Amish craftsmanship is evident in the millwork throughout the coach, as this trim piece shows.
The Tempurpedic Cloud mattress is brought into the coach and the rear bath laundry center is finished off.
