Anyone tried installing the Fantastic Fan in the bedroom and reversing the leads so it blows in instead of out? Could be an alternative to a big ceiling fan.

We're going to do this mod soon for the bedroom vent. Just buy the reversible one.

All I have left to do right now is install the under counter spice rack and the key rack - dog leash holder.

New to this world, but I ordered an LED light strip for the awning after reading about it here.

I'm also in the process of installing a Royal Easi-Move trailer mover (Trailer Mover | www.easi-move.com). I got the mover mounted and have to run the wires and all. It's been raining pretty much everyday the last week, so I haven't gotten to that part yet. Ordered the mover because we have limited "play room" putting our trailer in my storage building, and this should eliminate any mistakes I know I would make backing in with my truck.

The movers are very popular in the UK, but I haven't found many people using them here in the states. I'm hoping this works well for our trailer. The thought of remote controlling my trailer around is just a crazy/cool idea to me.

I'm also toying with the idea of a PVC towel drying rack. I like the rear bumper mounted one, but worry about it handing to the rear bumper. Thinking I make a folding/stand alone one that go into my pass through storage when not being used. I made a quick idea in SketchUp. This one is showing about 4ft long by 1ft wide. The legs would fold up for storage. Anyone have suggestions/thoughts about this?

Did a whack o' mods this past winter. Too many home projects to do outside this time of year to be spending a lot of time working on the trailer.

Recently installed a 30A detachable power cord though.

And yesterday, I removed the lower screen in the entry screen door and replaced it with a piece of Lexan. Necessary due to the pet dog not liking being left alone inside while we went for a short walk. The clear plastic plastic actually looks great but I am sure said pet dog will scratch it in short order and otherwise leave dog snot marks all over it....

I know a lot of you guys don't have the room to carry it, but I made an aluminum box that sits over my sky light. I carry it in our enclosed trailer. I did like dunnnc said and left a air gap around the bottom. It made a huge difference on keeping the camper cooler on hot days. Plus when thunderstorms roll through I put it up there to stop hail stones! I don't mind replacing vent covers but I don't want to have to replace that sky light.

Sounds like a good idea, how do you hold it down?

I will try to take a pic and post it. I don't like making new penetrations in any roof so what I did was remove 4 of the screws in the sky light (straight across from one another) and replaced them with eye screws. I pumped the holes full of clear silicone before replacing them, I waited 24 hours for that to cure and then went back over it with the self leveling Dicon sealer. I just use 2 bungee cords and we have been in 60-70 straight line winds and it has never moved.
