Mods and Tweaks for 30WR Work and Play #3


I have changed 70% of the inside lighting to LED.


Additional Clearance lights. I added four more lights to each side and five across the rear. I can also turn these lights on from inside the TH when not connected to the TV. Because...I could.....


I added a second AC to the Garage. My W&P came pre wired for the second AC.

Mods and Tweaks for 30WR Work and Play #1

I thought I would start a thread and show some of the Mod and improvements to my 2011 30WR Work and Play. Maybe there are some others out there as well. I wish I had read the small print before I loaded all the pics on this one thread. Guess I will have to do more than one to get them all in here.

This is the 30WR.. Minus most of the awning that blew off going down the highway...That was fun, and before the second AC install..



Delta Tongue Box. I use this box for battery storage for four 12 volt deep cycle batteries. I also included a shelf above the batteries that hold power cables and water hose.

Four deep cycle batteries give me about 340ah




Folding End Tables put in the garage at the end of the garage couches.

Mods and Tweaks for 30WR Work and Play #2

E Track Tie Downs Locking Condor Wheel Chock in the Garage


Added 19" TV to the garage. Cabled for Sat and Park Cable. Also added Satellite to Main TV.


Fresh water tank support. I did not like the way the fresh water tank drooped over the front axle. I added this support padded with Neoprene.



8 Foot ladder storage under garage.

1/243, You didn't get a spare tire with you WR, Mine was mounted under the garage floor where you put your ladder?
Looking at how you cabled up your 4 batteries, since they all in parallel. You could have terminated your negative cable to the first battery instead of splicing it the way you did and running it to the last battery.
That support for the water tank looks real good, I'm concerned about my fresh water tank bulges when it full.

Thanks. I did not like the way the fresh water tank drooped down. Mine kinda molded that way even when it was empty.\\

I found putting the positive at one end and the negative at the other is the best way to go. This allows the bank to act as one large battery and better balenced. .

Just thought would update my Mods and Tweaks thread

Added outlets to each side of the dynette. Before the outlets were under the upper cabinet and cords and wires hang down..



Added a heater vent to the bathroom, my 30WR did not come with one.


Battery Off/On Switch. This will cut off all the power to those little vampire lights that stay on when your on battery which means I can go longer before having to recharge the batteries..


Polished the upper cap and fenders

What polish did you use on the aluminum?
Looks good.

Diamond Brite from Lowes. This is the kind of polish that turns black as you work it on aluminum. You want to use a foam applicator on your drill or polisher and make sure you tape off any caulking becuase it will turn it black if you don't.. Lot's of work and lots of elbow grease required..
