My 2016 23lb mods

So I thought I would put together a post of some of the mods on my 23lb


I really did not have a good place to put the coffee maker on the counter, and I did not want to put it on the fold down counter just in case. I added an outlet to the left of the range hood.


I also was not putting a bike rack on the back or the ladder. I replace the 1/4 plywood seat bottoms with 1/2 inch and cut them lengthwise down the middle and put on a piano hinge. I then added 4 fork mounts to the bottom so I can just flip them up and mount our bikes.

I replace the thermostat. I have been meaning to paint it black but have not gotten to it yet

I added an outlet up in the 3 door cabinet above the table to plug in my media box and hard drive. The media box runs of to the Radio and works perfect up there using a rf remote. This outlet is switched at the panel by the door so I don't have to unplug it when not in use

I added some switches to my panel. First I added a switch to turn on/on the electric water heater. Added a 12 volt relay behind the inverter so only 12 volts run over to it and added the same blue switch so I know if it's on or off.

I hated the flimsy panel by the water heater and the staples kept breaking anyway so I added a hinge so I could flip it down when I needed to get to something like my winterizing valves.

I added a slide out shelf to the pantry since it was a waste of space up there.

I added TVs to the bunks for those rainy days and wired them to the hdmi of the radio and antenna so the boys can all watch what they want.

I replace the drain hose on the refrigerator that was crap anyway and moved it so it would drain out the bottom instead of coming through the cover.

Thanks for sharing!
You obviously don't work full time or don't get to go camping much to have that sort of available time...
