He's got a lot of stuff......I'm surprised it's not a toy hauler......but wait.... it's his neighbor with the 5er following him....now makes sense.

Another good addition to the 2109S are peel & stick soap dishes in the shower mounted head high.
If you can only find soap dishes with suction cups these will probably work if you 1st apply a dab of silicone sealant or similar substance to the suction cup first.
We have found plastic tubs useful to hold our goods in the cabinets above the stove.

We ditched the heavy factory table and went with this smaller and lighter alternative from Sudden Solutions.

Do you have the false door under the entertainment access cabinet. Our 2012 does, I change it to an operable cabinet. ( good place for liquor and DVDs). The shower mods were a must, they keep the water in.
I request factory parts for cabinet hardware, pretty reasonable pricing so everything matches. Added a fold down door with my overhead storage in the slide.
Change all my exterior locks, many TT have same keyed locks. Found this out from my friending camping neighbor who open my exterior storage panel with his key.
I changed all my lights to LED through M4.com. Added new LED with interior switch to awning 120 with all parts and mounting rail from factory.
Next big thing adding passthrough compartment LED lights.
That's a few mods

Where did you get the new locks from I always thought about that, and I don't need someone stealing my stuff

Randy, we're expecting our 2016 camper the end of July. I went on www.pinterest.com and found many useful hints and suggestions on every topic of camping and campers. Just do a search of "camping" and you'll see what comes up.

Rockfordroo, where did you get the splash guards and the plexi? I wasn't sure if you cut and drilled it yourself or ordered it. I figure I would crack it.

Got the splash guard a Lowes. I got the plexiglass at Home Depot. I'm sure you can get both at either place. You can cut the plexiglass like tile or wallboard: Score it where you want it cut and then snap it. Drill the holes for the screws carefully (have a block of wood under it to drill into) or you'll crack the plexiglass. I used SS screws and SS finishing washers like these:

I put a piece of 2 x 1/2 wood inside the cabinet for the screws to bite into. Some folks have used rivets instead of screws. Then caulk around it.

Thanks for the info. I guess the plexi doesn't have to be very thick. Since all it is doing is protecting from water. Not like its a window or something. I'll give it a whirl.... That's a GREAT idea....

Thanks so much

I'd LIKE to say it was mine, but I can't.
