Curious

I just bought a 2013 microlite. I am about to start using it for work and will probably be at job sites on average for 2-3 months. I was wondering what would be the things to go ahead and replace and work on to make this as comfortable as possible. One question I have is. What is the largest tv you can replace with the 25 inch that came with it? Thanks for any pointers I'm a first time RV owner

My question to you is do you have a plan for tank management? In terms of comfort, acclimate will you be using it in (ie cold northern with the, Florida etc?) What kind of hook ups will you have? This will help direct answers.

Many of the mods depends on whether or not you will have full hook up or if you're going to have to drive it somewhere to dump the black/gray tanks and re-fill the fresh water tank.

I will be working here in Tx. I have just bought basic hook ups. I plan on doing my best to keep water in the tank and use RV toilet paper, and drain it as much as possible.

If you're not going to be sure about having shore power (not just 110 but bigger else you can't use the air conditioner) I think the number 1 upgrade would be in buying a generator.

Lots of info in here on generators and my buddy here at work built a sound-cover box for his and he says it's amazing how well it works. (He dry camps a lot in Colorado.)

Not meaning to butt in but the sound box sounds great. If you can share that it would be great. Thanks

Sure, he said he just watched this Youtube video and built one to fit his Honda generator. He said he lined his box with something called Safe 'N Sound from Home Depot so be sure to leave a few inches of extra room all around as you want to get a nice, thick bunch in there. (He just used a staple gun to hold it all in.)

He did mention he used all pressure treated wood since it'll be used in all-weather conditions and didn't want wood rot.
