26RL Mods

These are mods I did to make the TT more live able. All were easy, the solar and regulator are from Ransond found on eBay. 50 watt, keeps up with 12 vdc with moderate use. Single 12 v battery, group 24 adding a second of the same this week.

The propane cover supports the solar and i put a 3" hole so i could see where the auto change valve is as far as operation and i can open/close the gas valves through the hole easily.

West Marine has'em but I got some at a marine surplus in Daytona Beach. They are stainless springs and I have them on all the vertical lift cabinet doors.

I like the shelves you put in the cabinet under the TV. If I ever get my coach back, I may do the same thing. I already had the door holds put on all my cabinets, I picked them up at Camping World.. And I just love Camping World.

After seeing pictures of the lifts I had my dealer install them on my vertical cabinet doors. At about $5 each why did I ever wait to do so? Makes reaching for stuff much easier.

Great idea!

Just change the battery. Pop off the two little covers, take out the screws and remove the battery cover in the back. Be sure to level the trailer using a longish level on the inside floor then reinstall the device. Adjust until only the green light is on then firmly tighten. Done.
