Removed the battery and brought it inside. Will get it into the trickle charger cycle. It bounces between the motorcycles on a weekly basis.

We bought our 201430vsk v cross in March of 2015. I made a double battery holder that hangs under the front v. The battery's are deka gel, from may 2008. This is the 3rd trailer they are in. I want to see how long they will last. They have been on a charger, stored totally dead, dry camped, in storage starting fridge for 4 days multiple times, and in use living and camping. Wet cell battery have never worked more than 1 yr. Maybe it's because there's 2.

Never did like the door going into the lav area so I finally got around to fixing it. It opened from the right side and got into the way of the refrigerator and the shelf above it. Easier than I thought...remove, flip upside down then reverse then drill a new hole for the handle latch. Much easier than I thought...less than 20 minutes.

Today I redid shelves in the island. Plumbing was moved. Old shelf was put in from front side. New shelf from back side. Panels removed new doors.

I went down to Home Depot and purchased 4 - 10' long 1/2'' trim pieces in coffee color and attached them to almost all of the wall/floor joints in my TT. I've always thought it looked cheap to just have the walls meet the floors without any trim boards. It really dressed it up and just makes me feel like it is more finished. The wife was impressed on how much nicer it looks.

After our walk through I complained about the cheap joint tape that was used on the paneling seams, so the dealership ordered the wood (wall covering covered) strips and installed them on all of the panel seam joints. That really looks nice and feels so much better than the taped seams that were peeling away.

I had gas struts installed on the front queen bed storage area to make it so much more accessible. I also had a battery disconnect switch installed on the hitch frame near where the battery is located.

I also installed the 21" HD TV on the wall just above the dinette. It looks great and seems real sturdy. The dealership had to replace the internal cable from the DVD player to the wall socket (that was bad) so the DVD player would play DVD's on the TV. It works great now!

As soon as the weather here in Idaho warms up (about April maybe!) I'm going to find a way to put another battery (end-to-end)on the hitch. The trailer just came with one.

That's about if for now. Can't wait til spring break to try it out!
