Sorry for delay in replying... As I understand it, 2 6-volt deep cycle batteries will provide power for a much longer period of time than 2 standard 12-volt batteries. The battery dealer said to me... just feel the weight of a 6 volt vs. 12 volt battery. The extra batteries are in series with the existing batteries, so they are charged along with them. I have not worked on covering them - not sure a cover is really needed though - e.g., the chassis battery isn't covered. After 1 trip to Burning Man on miles of a dusty road, the batteries were covered with dust, but work fine - not pretty, but who cares? Here's a link to another post of mine: http://www.forestriverforums.com/for....html#poststop I'm thinking about solar, but so far haven't made the jump - that's probably another $800-1,000.

it is not secured; it is held in place by the weight of the dash and a small lip on the underside of the dash. The wedge doesn't move and we've driven over some very rough roads.

The intent was to make the wedge removable as a just in case, but it takes a couple of strong guys to lift the dash enough to get it out of there. I'm going to modify the wedge enough to fit a small sheet of super high density foam between the doghouse and the underside of the wedge to see if that will make an even better improvement.

Finally getting around to posting pics of our replacement shades. No more crooked pleated shades!! And, as when we replaced the front, passenger, and driver shades - loving these day/night shades. Next year, they will probably be standard in new FR3's haha.

Storage solution for pass thu on the 30 DS. I used a chrome wire shelf from Home Depot 48 inches wide. Built two racks front to back each 18 inches wide each. . Lined up the front and back shelves.

This gives me 2 shelfs plus the base floor gives me three levels of storage. Folding table on a shelf now. No more emptying out the whole bin just to get to the grille. Chairs and folded fishing rods fit nicely on the top shelf.

Hey I'm wondering about your barbecue mod I'd like to run a line from the propane to the compartment by the door so I can run the barbecue there. Do I need a low pressure for that and did you put a "t" on the main tank
