I have a 2860DS;
1) Installed spring loaded curtain rods and curtains on all the windows.
2) Put 2 more batteries in parallel with what the RV came with. I do a lot of dry camping.
3) In the same vein as #2, bought LED lights online for all the light fixtures.
4) Added 3 more shelves in the pantry.
5) Installed bug screens over the outside heater vent.
6) Had a taller glass divider made between the stove and couch to eliminate grease from splattering over the top of the divider and onto the couch.
7) Cut foil to size for the cab area windows for privacy.
8) Installed a digital DC meter where I can monitor the coach battery voltage.
9) Installed an exterior cover over the bedroom ceiling vent allowing the vent to be open when it rains.
10) Installed wire racks in some of the cupboards to utilize the space better.
11) Bought an inverter to enable me to use AC devices (like a toaster) from my coach batteries without having to start the generator.
12) Installed my own bedroom TV.
13) Put spacers on the front TV mount to tilt it, giving a better viewing angle.

Then if our oldest son needs it, will take it to Atlanta until Dec. It may make one more trip to FL this Dec. and then put a For Sale sign on it.
(sigh) It's sad to read about a For Sale sign on your baby, OC, but I think that IF you do sell it, you should hold an auction!

If we hadn't just bought our new 5er I'd be first in line to bid on that puppy, knowing all the mods you've done to it and how well you've maintained it.

I'm making a storage tube for the outside rug. I shopped yesterday, painted it with the flexseal (so it will be water resistant), today. Still working on final design...

Platokidd, Hah! Sorry, guess I misread the thread title, must have overlooked the word "Today"....

Let's see, today, all I did was look out the window at it, all covered in snow... Gotta get out there though soon in prep for my annual Spring trek south.

Finished up the plans for a rear bumper BBQ grill mount. Sent plans and aluminum to the fabricator. Should have it back in a week or two.
