I did two mods right away...
1) The sewer hose carrier underneath is a 46" Valterra, my 15' Rhino flex was 48" long. I removed it, cut it and placed a corrugated pipe extender in place with some SikaFlex adhesive and machine screws. Gorilla taped in the interior to ensure the screws did not scrape my hose...

2) Installed speaker switches for inside/outside so I did not have to rely on the fade....

This is our firt trailer. I don't know if we have a hose carrier...where is yours located? We haven't done any mods yet. It came just as we liked it. Did get a 4000 watt champion generator at TSC for 250... thinking about mounting it to the rack and getting another batterie. Ours came prewired for solar just haven't figured out what we need yet.

The hose carrier should be located underneath, about a foot to the right of the sewage drain.

Also, if getting another battery, do it before you get any use on the first one. They need to be put into service in pairs or else the older one will create issues for the newer one.

The solar prewire is for ZAMP solar only. The wires are not hooked up to the batteries by default. They are looped up in the front of the frame underneath.
