First mods to Rockwood 2109S

Hi All,
Thanks to many posts on this forum, I have done the following mods to my new 2012 Rockwood 2109S.

1. Shelving in closet next to refrigerator which will be used as a pantry.
2. Shelving in cabinets above stove and sink.
3. Key holders on inside door of small cabinet under large one next to refrigerator.
4. Added double sided velcro tape to backs of remotes to give them a designated storage location.
5. Added double sided velcro tape to back of remote temperature sensor to install it on side of steps. Figured this location would give a reasonable average temp at campsite.

Cost of material without tax: $84.72

How does your wireless thermometer work? Does it seem pretty accurate?

I really want one, but the only wireless one I've ever had didn't work well. And, I can't get my wireless internet to go through the metal siding of the trailer...

I've attached my remote sender behind the spare tire mount using removable zip ties. Got it from costco, seems to work fine although my trailer is the fibreglass sided type.

Happy camping,

like shinysideup, i velcroed and cable tied mine to the spare tire bracket.
probably reads a few degrees warm there. but generally pretty accurate

I have had no trouble using my MIFI inside the trailer -- if i am in range of a good Verizon signal it works fine. Alsao nop problems with campgrounds that have a WIFI signal.
Maybe you just had a weak signal??

Yeah, thats entirely possible. My wifi works all the way down to my workshop, but not in the trailer unless I'm by one of the windows. After that, I didn't play with it much more...
