Mods To Your 351DS

I'll start with a way to keep your remotes in place. Got these really cheap and painted them black. One in the living room, one each for the bunks, and one for the bedroom.

This is a must do. Relocate the trailer wiring tab from the bottom of the hitch to the top. If you don't it will eventually get knocked off.Click image for larger version

I installed an additional inverter to operate various plugs and entertainment components. This one from energizer actually fits with no drilling. It come with an on off switch, like the one for the fridge. Click image for larger version

Agree, tore it off on our first trip. Broke the metal bracket in half and destroyed the plastic housing.

Moving the tab is straight forward. It is ridiculous that it wasn't done at the factory. I took a picture of where the wires were once I took apart the plug so it could be reassembled properly. I cut it off the bottom with a recip -saw. If you know how to weld its a breeze. I can't imagine that anyone would charge more than a few bucks to weld it if you brought it to them.

The insulating padding on the door - do you notice a big difference in temperature?
