Small eye hooks screwed to the bed support structure that makes up the top of our outside storage compartment. Spaced and bent just right to hold fishing rods up and out of the way in what would otherwise be wasted space. Did the same thing for stabilizer crank on the other side of the storage compartment.

Have a quick question for aceinspp. When you added the LED strip lighting to your stairs and in your cabinets, how did you wire it. I am the DW and when I find these upgrades and try to tell my DH about them, he basically tells me that I have to research this to make sure that it works with our trailer. In other words, it never gets done and he gets tired of me looking at this website for updates and finding things for him to do. I think this would be great because we have an older dog and he has a hard time going down the stairs especially at night. If you could help me out that would be great!!!! Thank you so much.

My front landing gear is STOOOOOPID slow. So instead of standing there fighting horse flies and mosquitos while hunkered over with my bad back, I built these simple little steel levers that swing over the switch either up or down to hold the switch down while I stand back for a minute, and swing out of the way when not in use. Since these pics I have painted them white to look better.

Also added a 12v power outlet inside the basement. Will be handy to charge phones instead of going in and out of the camper.

ratherbecamping: As soon as it gets dark enough I can grab a pic of the step. I wired into the existing so called step light. This is the little light lto the right of step. Brown white wire is positive. I added 3m double stick tape to the LED strip as the sticky tape they attache is not to good. The Cabinet lights I bought from Lowe's for $12 a piece and they are bright. They have a Velcro backing so when the battery dies just pull down replace battery and re stick to the Velcro in the Cabinet. They will last for a long time on battery.

I've attached a couple of pics but the step light may not show up as it was not to dark but I will retake. Later RJD

Cheapest mod I ever did was to shove a board (4 x 17 in) up under our "pots and pans" cabinet to keep floor of cabinet from sagging. The board is just "there"... unattached, because it's in the way of changing the water filter. Not the sexiest mod anyone ever did but my cabinet doesn't sag anymore.

Added 2 towel rods in the toilet room cause there is NO PLACE in this trailer to keep towels. And the fan in there will dry a damp towel before it can turn stale. I think they were $6 each.

A piece of scrap foam board keeps birds from nesting in the pin box. And another blocks off the laundry chute to lighten the load on the air conditioner.

No pics but...

Plugged up all the air leaks I could find with 2 cans of Great Stuff (one of the first mods you should do) to again lighten the A/C load.

Installed a 12 volt cigarette lighter outlet in the bedroom. Got the cigarette lighter port from an auto parts store. Got a wall outlet plate for cable TV F-connector and reamed out the hole to fit. Tapped into the 12 volt lighting circuit for the cargo hold.

Put a strip of led lights on my steps and connected them to a Dusk to Dawn controller. They are never turned off with a switch, but come on and off automatically 24/7.

There is a joke in there, but I'm not going to say it.
