I had a thick strip of window tint installed across the windshield about 13" wide, and wife decided she wanted the side windows tinted as well, so my window tint guy is coming back out Tuesday morning to do side windows, will post pics when completed. Also a tip here - pop out all of your screens and check for the retaining clips. The driver's slide window has 4 spread out across the top, but the passenger side only has one (3 missing). I believe they are Hehr part no. 010-921, and am trying to find a source now to get some replacements.

True, I did the bracket when I swapped out the TV and sent the stock one back to Forest River. A while before the cabinet project. No real need for it now I suppose, can adjust the angle down some but not exactly necessary or nothing that a few thick washers couldn't fix with that original plate.

Two more things checked off on the to-do list. Refinished the center table and added a TPMS....

finish on table looks good. The TPMS looks interesting, might have to research that. Any other review comments about it?

What happened to the table to make you want to refinish it? Is it solid wood, or did you add on a veneer or contact paper or what?

We would like a TPMS too, but want one that will also work for the toad without having to fool with a signal booster or anything like that. Are you using yours with a toad?

No toad yet, just trying to learn how to drive this 38ft monster! Lol. That particular unit will do up to 22 wheels including a toad. I'm pretty pleased with it so far. It seems to read the wheel sensors fine and allows you to set the alarm parameters for psi and temp for each wheel.
I wasn't crazy about the faux marble Formica on the stock table so I changed it out with solid wood in similar shape (slightly bigger). I stained and poly to compliment other wood finishes. I may put some cup holders in as well. Haven't decided yet....

We have the EEZRV TPMS. I am very pleased with it. It picks up sensors on our toad and tow dolly when they are 80'+ away without a booster. You set pressure and temp per axle not tire on the MH. The trailer axles all have to be set the same. Due to this I use the EEZRV rear MH axle for the dolly pressure and the trailer for the toad pressure. This is not necessary if your toad can be towed 4 down.

1. Inverter rewire: power to the outlet in the sink cabinet and power to the couch/dining slider outlets.
2. UPS behind main tv powers dish receiver and Tivo. Plug the UPS into the inverter powered outlet when going down the road. Also have infrared repeater going into the cabinet.
3. Replaced king antenna with Winegard bracket. Carry two different antenna heads. Installed variable gain control.
4. Added extra cable to get antenna and satellite/park cable into tv cabinet.
5. Linked dash stereo to house stereo and added added a/b switch to select tv or dash stereo input.
6. Yanked the couch and donated to salvation army. Replaced with power reclining theater seating. (Reason for adding inverter power to the slider).
7. Removed the top bunk (saved materials to replace), added a "normal" curtain rod and full length curtain. Reused curtain ties. Installed molding to cover up the missing bunk. Used both mattresses. Did this for my (almost) 90 year old mom.
8. Added adjustable curtain rod above entrance door and a dark curtain.
9. 5star tune
Some more mods:
10. Roadmaster steering stabilizer
11. Helwig swaybar links in the front, cheap handling fix front and back
12. Solution for two cots to go over the dining table (will add an inflatable queen mattress)--makes up for hide-a-bed sofa I removed (Item 6)
Pictures for items 6, 7, 8, and 12 (previously posted pictures for item 1):
