Installed a simple voltmeter next to my converter. It is wired directly to the batteries with an in line fuse. Nothing fancy.

I have the coffee pot on the counter next to the stove. The outlet is underneath the overhead cabinet but towards the front. This made leaving the coffee pot plugged in difficult cause the wire was just hanging. I installed an additional outlet towards the back of the overhead cabinet. Now the cord for the coffee pot is out of the way. Yes I'm a little obsessive about wires and it looking clean. While I had the tools out and cabinet opened I installed a 12v blue led nightlight.

Keep the mods coming! Our GTS is being built next week so it is only about a month to go before it arrives and the mods begin...

How do you keep the outside accessible trash can from sliding around in the compartment? The one photo I've seen has a lot of wasted space around a fairly small garbage can. It looked like it would be way too easy for the container to slide away from the "drop zone"... I'm thinking the box of trash bags, and some other outside stuff, will go in that compartment to help with any shifting issues.

Hmm, maybe that trash can was a "dealer installed" option. It looked waaaay too small for the compartment. I'm glad it isn't a problem as it could get messy quick...

Okay, our unit is on the line this week and in paint next week so I'm getting closer. So I'm going through tweaking my old PDI check list and a big one is air pressures in the tires and now suspension air pressures. What tire pressures are you running front and rear? And what are you guys running on the air bags? Do you "set and forget" the air suspension or are you adjusting them for load?

I'm considering adding an on board air compressor to be able to adjust the suspension "on the fly" and to have a easily accessible compressed air source. Anyone done that mod yet?

Thanks,

I keep extra rolls of paper towels, there is just room for two in mine.

I installed the Camco extend a stay on the propane tank. . I used a small piece of aluminum to extend the bottom under the regulator. Super easy took 10 minutes.

Nice, I got to try mine out last trip after using the furnace for two weeks. I picked up a bottle and it kept us going the last few days.
