Stinky slinky storage mod, roof vent covers, electric tongue jack, and an RGB awning LED strip with wireless remote and wifi controller (to control the lights from a smartphone).

I just grabbed a Husky jack off Amazon. It had good reviews and it has a wireless remote which will come in handy when I'm trying to level the trailer myself. I can go in the trailer with the level and use the remote to level it little by little until it's perfect. The speed isn't crazy fast, but it's faster than the manual jack so that's plenty good enough for me. It also has enough room to get the tongue high enough to load the bikes in (decrease the break-over angle on the ramp) so all-in-all, so far it's perfect. The sewer pipe doesn't extend any further down than the steps or the axle so clearance shouldn't be an issue.

I can't take the credit, it was a thread on here somewhere. It's a conduit carrier kit (the end covers), a 6" sewer pipe (for the life of me I could not find any 6" PVC locally), and a rain gutter to help slide in and out easier. I found some nice 1"x1" square tube stock (piece will all of the holes in it) to act as a spacer to keep the pipe off of the propane line that runs along the frame. It works great, but next time I would probably have gone the full 8' (I opted for 7' so it stayed under the trailer more and it's a bit tight to get everything in there), but I can fit my main slinky, the extension, and the elbow all inside the pipe. I still have to get a quick lock or something to keep the conduit carrier cap closed because they are known to pop open from time to time. Over-all it is possibly one of my favorite mods because it freed up roughly a 3'x2'x2' space in my storage compartment

And the good thing is, it doesn't get as tired as the manual jack does. VOE

Thanks buddy. I didn't know they made them with remote. That would be handsfree handy... Not thinking when I fastened the level near the door, instead a front corner. The carrier freeing up some space is always a great mod.
