Mods to my 2015 364TS

I finally figured out how to post pic.s so have responded on several threads with some of my mod projects. Thought I'd start my own thread specifically for this purpose. I would be very interested to hear what custom things everyone else is doing to their units.
For instance,
I wasn't happy with the rear camera, so I search and found one on the Walmart website of all places for the one the is pictured on the center of my dash above the stock one. When it arrived I found it had hook ups for two cameras, only one included, so I ordered the extra. I mounted one towards the top of my ladder and it points pretty much straight out (so I can see what's behind me from a good angle), and that way I repositioned the stock camera where the edge of the screen is the bumper of the coach and looking back, which is perfect for keeping an eye on whatever we are towing, from as simple as the rack we call a "backporch" which holds the honey wagon and the kids bikes, or our Tandem tow dolly with a deck for the golf cart and Fiesta behind it. I can watch it all now plus traffic. With the second camera I solved the issue of keeping an eye on the kids in the dinette or on the sofa while driving, for short trips from home my wife normally will drive her explorer separately so we have transport and the kids always want to ride in the RV with me. Anyway I placed it on the side of the cabinet over the door and positioned it where it picks up from right behind the driver seat to the wall behind the dinette. I'll take some more pic.s and get them posted.

This sounds fun. Once I get mine back from the dealer (last round of warranty repairs) I'll share some of my pics. Here's my list:
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

I might borrow some of your ideas on the backup camera. Also saw a mod for converting the space behind the bedroom TV.

Instead of the tandem tow, I have one of the Landgrebe dollies and pull my bike and car.

toolman 57 Great ideas. I thought about the 5star tune. What is your opinion, do you think it was worth it or only marginal?

Has anyone found the matching black out shade material for the window in front of the sink?

I think it was a good investment. The addition of 4th gear when downshifting is an improvement on the small hills and it seems to stay in the higher gear longer. If you go 65 to 70 it pulls really well on medium size hills in top gear.

The first thing I did to my 2015 364ts was, install a Roadmaster steering stabilizer and set the tire pressure at 90# all the way around. I have traveled over 5000 miles now and it rides like a dream. No problems with wind or semi traffic.
I also installed a power leather Love seat/recliner from Ashely home store. The best thing I could have done for the comfort of this coach. Installed max air covers over the vents on the roof.

If you have the big fridge/2000W converter, you may want to switch out the power to the main slide to run off the converter. Much easier to recline the couch when you're not on the generator or shore power.
