Nice! How long of screws did you use one the TP holder and towel ring as to not punch through too far?

For both, I used the screws that came with the set. Found the stud on the wall for the towel ring with the stud finder, so nice and secure. For the TP holder, cut a small piece of 2x4 and "gorilla glued" it on the inside of the cabinet wall, then screwed the holder through the thin wall into the small piece of 2x4. Solid as a rock!

I did the bathroom mods with the over the door rack, toilet paper holder and hand towel holder. I also have a battery operated motion sensor light under the medicine cabinet so its not dark when you go in there at night. Installed a LED light strip in the pantry along the vinyl trim from top to bottom. It has a motion sensor switch that activates it and illuminates the shelves quite well. I added a paper towel holder to the end of the cabinet by the sink just above the drawers. I also put a key ring rack near the door just below the cabinet. I put vinyl window tint and reflectix on all the windows. Insulated the under compartments and around the master bed with reflectix and then covered with masonite panels. Installed two RGB light strips, one on each side of the camper's frame facing outward. My initial goal was to be able to illuminate around the trailer for setting up at night. I placed the control unit in a 2" threaded PVC pipe with two end caps. Drilled out the end caps and ran the wires and IR sensor out then used RTV to seal up. Wired direct to battery with a fuse link and strapped next to the battery.

That sounds like a lot of work!
Question: Are you using the reflectix in the under compartments to keep hot air out? I was under the impression reflectix was really only useful when in direct sunlight - which reflects the light back out. The way you are using it on the windows sounds like it would be more beneficial. How are you keeping them in the window, tape or Velcro or something? Either way, I am curious to know how its working out for you. Would also love to see photos of your mods, some of them sound pretty cool.

Yes. I used the reflectix in the under storage areas. I used a single piece all the way across and stapled it into place everywhere I could. I then covered it with a masonite type board that Home Depot sells. I had to cut the piece in half and come in through the bed storage areas. I had to take the struts off the bed and lift it as high as it would go then put the board in. I laid down on my back, got the board in place then nailed it with a finishing nail gun everywhere I could. Made a clean finish on both the front and back. I then cut reflectix and placed it around the frame of the bed where it meets the storage opening and stapled that into place to form a seal. The reflectix in the windows is just cut to size and jammed into the grooves on the sides in the windows that will allow it. The two large windows on the slide are a little more difficult but I left enough to force it to stay. I was thinking velcro might be a better alternative but I was short on time. Bedroom fire escape window is just cut wider than the window and slid behind the blind when it is down. It was just a trial and error on getting it to stay. As far as the insulating effect, I'm currently in Arkansas at a campground and it is hot. The Reflectix is making a huge difference blocking the heat from the windows. My new AC is having trouble keeping up due to kids and door opening and closing but I believe it would be hotter without any of the reflectix. The package states that it can be used for just about anything in building and boasts up to a R-6 rating.

Here is a link to some of my pics. I'll be adding more of them when I get back from vacation.

Through the wall fan

I'm looking for a modification to pull cool air into the bathroom of my 274DBH. The bathroom has no air conditioner duct so it stays hotter than the rest of the camper. Obviously no one wants to leave their bathroom door open all the time so what I was looking to do was put a 12V fan in the wall between the upper bunk near the ceiling that would push air into the bathroom. I have not been able to find such an item. The fan would need a filter on the bunk side (to act as a privacy screen) and wall trim on both sides. Anyone know of anything out there or have done this mod? The fan doesn't need to be large but the covers for privacy are a must. I was looking at some large computer/server fans but they don't have covers.

My 274DBH Mods

I love getting ideas from here, so I wanted to post some pics for others to use.

1. Sink cover Holders (I used Michael4017 mod on the sink cover)
2. LED battery operated light strips in Storage compartments and under bed
3. Ordered 14.5"x14.5" door from FR and cut in so I could get to the Water Heater bypass and water pump. That way I could winterize without being a contortionist to crawl under the bed. (For those with 2017's where they put the Water heater in the front left corner)
