Lagun mount, Starboard Table, trial & error to figure the best top placement for actual usage, & for articulation away from the couch, when not in use.

Removable Dometic Countertop, Gorilla glued, custom fabricated brackets using a clip & pin mount. This one idea was way out of my league including the needed skill set. I am lucky to have supportive friends.

Starboard has been great to work with for sink & countertop, also table. Tap Plastic did a commendable job with radius & bullnose finish work. A $$ idea ... the table top was 26”x20”, material cut to size was ~$58, four corner 2” radius & bullnose edge was ~$22, so Total was ~$80. Reasonable imho. The countertop with its added drip perimeter was done by another friend.

This variable speed module is a couple $ more on eBay than when originally posted but still really cheap.

Hot glued onto fan housing. Drilled a hole for new control knob. I found it easier just to bypass the wiring for the old 3 speed knob. I left it in place & did not attempt its removal, less collateral aftermath.
Got great tech consultation from my son on this attemp.
The above link is excellent & covers everything in detail

StarkPower Bluetooth LiFePo4 App. I have 100Ah & 50Ah batteries, connected in parallel, in my FWC battery box. I purchased both about 1.5 yrs ago, same generation, parallel compatible.
I am not that handy. When I found out that internal Bluetooth existed in LiFePo4, I saw it as an opportunity. I did not have to buy a Victron battery monitor, mount it or wire it, add it to an already, for me, complicated wiring task. I am now a bit more confident. StarkPower has gone out of business, but, they were in business for some years, & I am happy with my purchase. I followed an earlier FWC post, the op a LiFePo4 pioneer, had owned SP for 2 years & was happy. There were Positive reviews about the company on the net. The owner was a former automotive industry innovator. Oh, also, they were priced ~$150 less than the competition, among several that did not offer Bluetooth. After buying the 1st Battery (100Ah), I had reasons to add more Ah(50) & to have separation. I asked for a discount & received a 15% off coupon code. It helped.
Two issues give me pause ... Will my SP App last “forever”?, 7 years is what I hope/expect. The 2nd issue occurred to me with this post, w/o the use of my phone for some reason, I will have no monitoring capability because I do not have an independent dedicated monitor.
Below are some screen shots taken off my iPhone SP App. #1. Both devices shown. #2 & 3. SOC, voltage, status, health, capacity. #4. Temperature & cycle life. My battery group has been through five cycles. #5. Real time individual cell activity. The tech is cool, it’s internal, it’s live. How long will everything function at a high rate .....
