2015 30DS Mods

Picked up my 2015 FR3 30 DS one month ago. So far I've added; bathroom shelves (Amazon.com Spice Racks), sewer hose holder over tank, wood dowels stained to match wod to support bed over cab (fell repeatedly on first trip), stop by bath mirror to keep door from hitting/breaking, hat rack, shower hooks, vent covers and other shelves throughout. Best (and most needed) was the grill insert.

Postal. Nice ad ons! Do you know what color and brand stain you used? I've tried so many that just don't match.

Also, have you encountered any difficulty screwing into the outer walls? When I installed my inverter in the closet I hit what I suspect was he steel square frame. What mounts did you use for the hat rack. Very stylish.

Techno, I used short 1/2 black screws and plastic anchors. I guess I was lucky and missed any frame, though I did with one hole on the bathroom shelves.

As for the stain, I just chose a dark sample sized container at Lowes. It was either black walnut or dark oak. I looked at both and forgot which I chose, sorry. I used it all and didn't keep the can. I have to point out the supports as they really do hide. That's why I took the pic from the side to make them show up. Never plan to use the top bed anyway.

I really like the sewer hose storage. Looks like it is by the propane tank? Does it run all away across or how long is it?

Sewer Hose

Yes, it's mounted above the propane tank and reaches all the way across to the steps. Mounted with three six inch hose clamps to the metal supports.

Nice job on the bunk supports. I mad a set for our FR3 because on the way home from the dealer the bunk fell with every bump. I took a Phyllis driver and loosened both the magnets, pretty loose, lots of wobble in the magnets, and on out trip to Utah and back the bunk never once fell. So now the supports just hang out in the closet.

Works well with the previously installed Go Power 1000w inverter.
