Last, but, not least, the entertainment center.

Other mods seen here are much better looking jobs. I plan on a redo soon. The power and video cables will go through the closet walls when it's done.

Replaced cheap standard Roo speakers with inexpensive Pyle speakers.



Using a Viewsonic converter to utilize an extra computer LCD monitor laying around, I bought a wall mount and have a 15" TV screen to use when it rains or to check news and more importantly, the weather.



And I velcroed the remotes for the TV and audio systems.


The DVD is for movies and the audio for all the TV equipment is through the OEM audio system. I hope to replace it soon.

This weekend I did two mods based on ideas I got in this forum:

I put the drain hose on the hot water heater (I hate the drain plugs and trying to get it in and out).


I made pvc racks to hold all the poles and long skinny things (in the front storage area).

Here are the cabinet door mods I recently made.

Upper cabinets - open cubby holes



Upper cabinets after with nice cabinet doors



Closed area below front bunk. The only way to access this space was to turn yourself into a contortionist and access it through the outside cargo area.



After - a cabinet door now provides easy access to this area.



This dinette seat has the water heater under it, but there is still a lot of useable space under there



Now a cabinet door allows easy access to that space.




Finally... Someone wanted to see a pic of the cheap ($9) Wal-mart 12V fans I modified to use as bunk fans. All I did was cut off the cigarette lighter plug and soldered on a 1/4" stereo jack plug so that it could plug unto the bunk power port. These oscillate too. In order to use the bunk fan and light together, I tried using a 1/4" splitter, but its been blowing the fuse if I try and use both at the same time, so I think the splitter may be the problem - but I have an idea on that. I'm going to get some 1/4" receiver jacks and wire them on to this set-up and plug the light into that. That would fix the problem if the splitters I have are the culprits.



Where did you find the doors for your upper cabinets?

More details on the Hot Water Heater Drain Hose please....

I don't think my plug nor my nuckles will stand many more removals. I recognize the braided hose but what parts were used to connect to the tank & the valve?

Thx

I ordered them from www.kitchendoordepot.com. They'll make pretty much any size you need and had the best price I could find online.

The hot water heater hose parts. . . I was going to take a picture of each part before I put it together, but before I could, DH grabbed it all and put it together. I think he was jealous of all the time I spent working on the trailer.

So it's the plumbing hose, and I got 1/2" connections on each end. The original mod I saw had one end descending to 3/8", but the valve I found was 1/2", so I got the 1/2" on each end. I got a 1/4 turn valve (easier than the multiple turn). And between the hose and the hot water heater was a 1/2" plastic plumbing nipple ( looked like this but was plastic).

Plumbers tape between all the connections and put it all together. Tested for leaks. . . no problems. Very easy mod and so useful.

Rather than living out of duffel bags for weekends/trips and constantly stacking and restacking them in our wardrobe, I opted for an easy drawer setup. I thought about doing permanent shelves, but the drawers are handy because I can remove all 3 to bring inside and pack. One for me, one for the wife, and the two kids (4 & 18 months) share the third. We have enough room in there for a 4 night trip. Makes getting at jammies and stuff a lot easier.

I added woven straps via velcro to the front of the drawers to keep them from flying open and spilling all over the floor (ask me how I know....).

Now for loading, when we pull the trailer home to load up, we bring the bins inside and when they're packed, they go in the wardrobe. Unloading is just as easy.

We let the kids decorate the front of each drawer with crafty foam stickers
