My new (to me) 2503s, and the first mods!

Well finally traded up from a 2011 Roo 19 to a 2013 2503s. This thing is great! Taking her out in the maiden voyage in a couple of weeks, to kick off the new year. This gives me just a couple of weeks to knock out some mods. So far I knocked out:

-2 6 volt Duracell batteries 230 amp hour
-custom silverwarej drawer
-1100w inverter
-3 new outlets (with 3.1amp usb plugs) wired off the inverter
-40 amp solar charge controller




Any recommendations for the next round?

2. Honeywell RHB111B digital thermostat (Post #2)
Digital thermostat

3. Fencepost sewer hose holder (Post #10)
Sewer Hose Storage

4. PVC pipe WDH spring bar holder (Post 11251)
What did you do to your camper today?

5. BAL Hide-a-Spare for spare tire (Post #1, 2, etc)
Installing BAL Hide-A-Spare on a Mini Lite

6. 2Ē receiver/beefed up frame for bike rack (Post #12 for my Mini Lite; Post #2 for my Roo)
Installing a hitch on my roo.

7. 4 pin connector for bike rack lights

8. Routed fresh water tank drain to side of trailer (Post #5)
How do I drain my fresh water tank?

9. 110VAC outlet on street side sofa table (Post #7)

10. New locks all keyed together (except outside shower)

11. Dura Single Handle faucet in shower

12. Replaced on-board water filter with coupler and outside filter (Post #3)

Driving with lp tanks open to run fridge, right or wrong?

14. Computer fans on fridge condenser coils (no pics)

15. Removed rubber feet on Murphy Bed legs and replaced with felt (no pics) You should have the 5/8" plywood floor, so not as big a deal for you. UPDATE: Just realized you have a 2013 with the luan-foam floor, so you may still want to do this. Check to see of the feet have made indentations in the floor.


Here's some other items (and a repeat or two):
Questions about 2017 Rockwood Mini Lite 2503S

Good luck.

Krieger...went pretty cheap first, it's got great reviews on amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

We are primarily boondockers, so we never use the microwave. Just needed something that could run the slow cooker, charge phones. bluetooth speakers, iPads, etc. We had this one for the last year in our Roo...works like a champ.
