If your unit dosen't come with an electric toungue jack that would be high on my list. Next would be a Tornado black tank flush system. Easy to install and worth every penny. That will get you close to the $250 for those 2 items.

Just from the point of view of safety, I cannot see spending $250+ an additional 10 bux on anything but a TPMS system. $259.00 bux buys you a very nice system and with all the blow outs there seem to be, it should be at the top of everyones list and if any of the manufacturers are reading this just put it on the trailers you just seem to have to put substandard tires on and give us all some peace of mind. A power tongue jack or black tank flusher will do you no good if half the insides are tore out of your rig from a blowout. Oh and I am guilty of buying a power jack before the TPMS system as well, you know convience before safety.

On my 2011 minilite I have done a few improvements like. 1: Repairing all the large gaps on the cabinets with moldings from Forest river . 2: I replaced the curtains valances because they were looking very cheap and flimsy < and we installed some curtains lines because th 2011 models were discontinued. 3: I installed some moulding at the bottoom of the shower to prevent water leaks. 4: I installed a fan for cooling on the fridg to prevent the OE fan to cycle all the time special;ly at night when I sleep.

I forgot to add some shower curtains hooks to replace the terribly ugly ones and a new shower hose and head to replace the stiff no fun to use plastic hose with a stainless steel one. A shut off valve was installed just over the shower handles. Like that it is very easy to control the valve while showering.

Most of my mods have been repairs. I started at the tongue with the wiring and have insulated it all the way back to the tail-light. I added some clamps and stand offs to keep it up and out of the way where it might rub. Preventive measures..
I did replace the shower head with one that is adjustable and has a shut-off. On my 2009 Puma I added two CD cases under the entertainment center to hold CD's. I also fixed the divider where it would be easier to remove when the power cord gets tangled up behind it. Right now I am concentrating on the nuts and bolts.....

Thanks
Have a look at TV Antenna Free - decent app for Android devices.

DW and I looked over all these great mod ideas and pulled the trigger on the Barker VIP 3500 electric tongue jack, a shower curtain rod extender, and the oxygenics shower head. Keep the mods you are happy with coming though, love getting the different ideas.

You will be glad you did the power jack. Makes hooking up and leveling so much easier. I would hate to be without one.
