Water pump is under seat where fuse box is. I just leave screws out. There is a 3" hose from the heater going to the floor under that seat also, i believe thats how the tanks are heated.

The water pump location made Winterizing a breeze.

I've also kicked around the idea of splicing the heat duct under the bench and running it to a vent opening under the dinette. We'd like to transfer a little less heat to the back bedroom and into the feet area... And our pooch has claimed that area as his sleeping quarters. We really don't need heated tanks, although we'd leave a little heat going to the area.

We've decided that come spring, we'll be replacing the bathroom fan with a Fantastic Fan... Had them in our previous two TT's and the current fan just doesn't measure up.

In your mod of this area... If you noticed... I was wondering if there's room to put the charging station inside that cubby area? And still have enough room to plug in a couple phones? I was thinking if so, all the wires and phones could be contained inside the cubby... I just dislike all the wires sticking out.

You could fab it up to sink the usb jacks into the cubby. The ports also come off the plate for a smaller foot print. I can still fit phones and kindle fires in there now and just the one side sticks out a little, not too bad.

We depart April 10 to Bald Eagle SP. More of a working weekend. Mods, cleaning, checking plumbing, gas lines and such. We were supposed to do Hershey Park next weekend, but had to cancel that trip. Time to start re-stocking the camper.
Purchasing a new mattress tomorrow from Sams Club. We can't sleep another night on the stock mattress, even with a 3" memory foam. I just purchased a telescoping extension ladder to have a little easier access when sweeping off the slideout.
I'll start some mods next week (weather permitting). Two questions... How did you remove the panel where the USB jacks are? And... How did you access the stereo connections? I like the gas line mod... Might have to look into that one. Looks pretty straight forward.

We roll out on the 6th but it keeps snowing here!
The stereo lines are easy just remove the unit and there behind. The usb are a little tricky, i pushed it in which breaks the panel and remove all staples. I used loan to make new panels where needed, minwax weathered oak is a nice match, i had 1st used some teak oil but wosh i saw the minwax 1st.
Heres the shelf i was telling you about, and a kwickset bathroom knob with a lock! Quickset fit perfect and didnt even need to change the guts just the handle!

Good to see you guys are getting close to camping time. Question, have either of you noticed the slide, when out, pinching a black flexible pipe by the bunk end, or showing cables along the edge? We don't know whether to be overly concerned, or just tuck them back under. Thoughts?
