1- removed bottom half of skylight in shower and spray painted it black to block the light. tried other things but kept falling down

2-added rope light tracks and lights the whole length of the canopy and wired it into the plug above the door. Works really well with electri awning.

3-moved central vac behind wall in storage. gets it out of the compartment door.

4- cut and repositioned vent linein storage to follow the toilet pipe.

5- add a receptical on outside between entry door and compartment door. can now close compartment door and plug something in.

6- had screen replaced with tinted film

7-added the second a/c was done when we returned it to the factory for major repairs.

8- added verious hooks inside and in storage.



future mods

1- add a receiver hitch on rear

2-LED tail lights

3- wet bolts

4- this one should be first build a rv cover

I would be very interested in a picture/info on the outside 110 vac outside plug-in that you added by the basement compartment door. That has been a real problem for us.

Hey Ken,

Wasn't that hard and is very useful. I renoved the breaker box and pulled it as far out as I could, there were three holes in the wall behind it that came out behind panel in compartment. I ran some cable that I had through holes. Breaker box had a 15 amp tannam breaker that was empty. I may have to replace it with a 20 but will see if it trips for what I use, The hardest part was drilling and cutting the hole in the fibergass(mentally) There are studs in the wallyou will have to miss. I had spotted them when having the a/c on real low durning 100 deg weather it would sweat. I put in a handy box and bought a recp. cover from a rv supply to match the other one. I sure you also have trouble with the entry door and the conpartment door banging when open. I bought another door catch and installed the long part like the one on the wall and installed it on the inside of the left compartment door. I open the compartment door and latch entry door to compartment door. Works really well. Just If you do install a recpt. temporary tape cover on wall and open compartment door to see where it hits and fits the best. I'll try take some pictures when I get hame and post later. Let me know if you need or I messed something.

Thanks for the reply. I can understand adding a breaker....and installing the box on the wall....but can quite compute where/how you got the wire from the breaker to the outlet. A picture would probably tell the whole story. "Take a picture when you get home"?....don't tell me you are camping....my rig is all done for the winter....winterized....battery out....all food out...etc. I do have some mods in mind for next spring though. The first one is going to be modifying that big sheet of plastic in the basement so I can use ALL of my basement. Then a coat rack in the bedroom. It is nice though to see what others like you have come up with. If you have time pictures would really be appreciated for that outside outlet

Ken

Here's some pics...hope this helps. Between the breaker box and the receptacle, there is only one inside wall to go through.My camper already had holesbehind the breaker box leading to wall with the access panel.

Wow! Nice job! That will be something I have to do in the spring. We have an electric grill so it is in use everytime we go out and that current arrangement is a true aggravation.

That looks excellent....I was thinking about doing the same thing once it warmed up. How hard was it to fish the wire from the panel?

John I glued the track with GOOP glue It s been up for more than a year with no problems, I did have to replace the lights cause a section burnt out. If I did it again I would spend the $ for leds
