Have partially completed my long list for our 'new' 28RKBS. So far: I've installed one of the two 5X5 PVC fence post storage boxes under the frame; added a partition between the basement and front bay; installed a hot water tank switch under the sink and added vent covers to two of the three vents.

Still to go: polyurethane the table top; install a fireplace under the TV; relocate the spare tire; add a Winograd sensor antenna; add a cut off valve so the beroom slide can be blocked from opening and add some pullouts to the pantry.

A lot there but at our age - this is the last RV we will be buying so will make it just for us!

New back splash on the kitchen area walls and may also remove the carpet and replace with floating wood floor.

Well, first off Dunnnc, you mentioned Clermont area...isn't that the Groveland, Florida area? I frequent both Groveland and Auburndale, Florida for work...as the customer needs support...

Mods...Tornado tank cleaner (sorry half-zeimers kicking in), 5x5 fence post storage areas...2 of them. One for the pet Rhino and the other with separations for fishing poles (fishing poles will accommodate the front storage). Figuring out how to SAFELY install a small rack on the back (obviously tied into the frame), changing from single to dual batteries, and lastly...also not a mod....figuring out where the flaw in my current electrical system resides and giving it a swift kick in the seat of the pants.

That's my to do list, however, as we all know...this is completely dependent on time availability and what the DW wants done first.

In the "just did it" column. Had to replace a water fitting in the shower, while I did that I changed out the faucet fixture with a better quality unit and installed an Oxygenics shower head.

The Thousand Trails CG is actually about 12 miles south of Clermont on Hwy 27.

Well, I am familiar with Hwy 27. Hopefully during a trip I can check out the CG. Thanks

I added a wineguard sensor to existing antenna and actually found that I was getting worse reception in Canada. Maybe because the channels I am receiving when camping are mainly not digital and wineguard makes your antenna more directional. Just a heads up for those north of the border. I took it back off but have it in storage for future consideration.

Well, this is a mod I just did but a good one before closing up for the winter...

I added aluminum window screen over all of the heater duct openings by pulling the plastic covers, applying the screen, and screwing them back down. Turns out the rodent critters used the heating system as their own private playing ground. I also removed the access panels in the back of the cabinets and discovered HUGE access holes for the pipes and wires were cut with seemingly no care whatsoever...sprayed those with expanding foam until filled. Hopefully no more critters.

I added Reflextic to all the walls inside all the cabinets and wardrobe close/added it to the whole baggage compartments. Installed a fireplace under the tv.
Just finished the island for the kitchen....it is on locking wheels so I can move it when not needed. Gonna look this weekend to see about laminate floors for the kitchen and bathroom areas.
