Made the first modification today on my 30DS...
With the Motorhome "plugged in" most of the time while it's parked on my RV slab, I kept wondering how to keep bugs and critters out of the large storage area in the back of the coach.
When you're plugged in, you have to remove the 4'' black cap and poke the cord out the bottom.... I was thinking bugs and mice could just walk right up that cord and make a home in the rear storage area...
I took the screw in cap and notched it to fit the cord. The power cord can fit right through it and you can still thread the cap into the housing. It was a simple fix that you can do with a hacksaw, file or dremel tool...
I think it turned out pretty good.

I've been thinking of doing the same thing, and with the water hose bin as well. Or just purchase the pre-made ones so that you can close it up tight while on the road. Nicely done!

Another easy fix; put steel wool around the cord where it goes through the hole. Mice can actually fit in the space between the cord and cap. Most field mice can squeeze through a quarter inch gap. Mice and most bugs will not go through steel wool.

Any of you "innovated handymen" ever add a cup holder to the passenger side in the front of the cabin?
It kind of seems weird it doesn't have one. I didn't want to just screw one on from the auto parts... just wondering how you guys did it?

I have been looking for one for a while, I don't want a cheap plastic 2.00 one; was thinking of having the local cabinet shop build one for me with a compartment with a door, maybe after the first of the year, unless I find something else I like,,,

Yep, picked up a beige colored plastic one and just screwed it on where I wanted it. Works just fine.

FR3 Pictures of Mods

Put one of these on the passenger side for the wife and also to each end of the couch. Easy install and they work great. They fold flat against wall when not in use.

That's the same one that I used, only in beige.

Same for me! Passenger side, each side of couch and both sides of king bed. They work great.
