RV Mod thread

We have the pic thread for the entire rig. Lets face it, I don't think there is anyone here that hasn't modded their RV. Post up some pics of your mods.



I just added a pair of 6v batteries. The original 12v marine batteries were done. Looking forward to having double the power available.


I had to build some mounts for the new taller boxes. They are plastic so I put a jam nut and washer under the mounting holes.




Then bolted the boxes on.




Then wired the batteries in series.




All covered up.

Don't have any pics of it, but a couple of trailers ago, I installed lights on the bumper of the trailer that were connected to the battery. I had a switch that I could turn on when backing the trailer up at night into a tight spot.

Here's what I did with my old 2 battery compartment


I figured it was a better place to put the solar stuff. This was me putting the solar on the roof



Another relatively easy project is to add a strip of LED lights. They operate off of 12V anyway(even the ones from Ikea, have a DC converter), so it works out well to add those to the RV.

I finally had time to get my other two 6v batteries installed this weekend....not the professional install I wanted but it'll do for now. Trailair pin box showed up today so I'll hopefully have it installed this weekend.

Thanks for the thread Scott!!!! I was thinking of doing it too.

I like it pretty well, though I think I may want to have more battery for longer life. Hence why I made a 4 battery space box.

More mods today. Wife wanted hooks in the bathroom. The door is the only spot and it is hollow so she got hooks in the living room too. The screws for each board go through the door into the opposite board sandwiching the door.
