Pictures for the first three (if I can figure out how top down load:
1. Clips for keeping table in position (bought before bungee cords showed up).
2. Counter extension (tried the tv shelf in the bedroon and the one for the outside grill, but they were too narrow for brackets to clear drawers).
3. Changed two steps to three going to bedroom (to reduce amount of complaining from wife).
Couple of others:
1. Added supports under drawers under dinette so they will hold more than a hankerchief. I can now stand in them in the closed position.
2. Shelf in cabinet above refrigerator.
(skipping pictures for now) Wayne

For those of you using the electric tongue jacks with a battery cutoff switch.... do you use a separate switch for just the jack, or combine it with your primary cutoff? I was thinking I would run just the single cutoff, but didn't know if there would be any concerns that I am overlooking.

I always hook mine direct to the terminal on the tongue coming from the battery. The jacks all came with an inline fuse so I wasn't worried about any problems of shorting.

My DH made some very nifty coat hooks (1) and a nice side table (2). Also reinforced all the shelves in our pantry cabinet and bathroom cabinet. Shelves in this TT are woefully inadequate, which you'll figure out on your own. Installed water heater switch with pilot light. Wireless remote awning mod, which was covered in depth in another thread. Oxygenics shower head (wish they made kitchen facuets too!)

My disconnect is wired to disconnect every load from the battery including the jack.

The reason I did it this way was because of my kids and their fingers that are always looking to push buttons.

Triguy, in your situation, I think you did it correctly. Kids are very inquisitive and love to push buttons. I would leave it like it is.

I actually wired a kill switch to the front landing gear because a visiting 5 year old tried to run my landing gear while the rear stabs were down.

The lot was sloped to the rear so when leveled the 5th wheel end was very low. Without that kill switch the kid would have ruined my rear stabs.

We are very excited about all the mods (mostly interior) we made over the winter. Got to test them camping for the first time this past weekend. Wow!!

1. In the category of "storage" - new/additional sliding drawers (8 total), extra shelving in upper cabinets and the creation of 6 cabinets in original spaces with blank panels only.

2. In the category of "electrical" - recessed, fan forced heater in ceiling, 2 new light switches to control lights individually, and new wall switch to control bath fan. (managed to conceal all wiring inside walls & ceiling.) Also the TV articulating mount that swivels 180 and allows us to watch TV in bed and from the dinette.

3. In the category of "brownie points" - laminate flooring, foam topper mattress and soft-grab handle on the exterior door. Highly acclaimed by the other 1/2.....

I think I may have kinda cheated on the 3 item limit. I'd refer you to my album for lots of pics but have only moved a few photos into it so far. Here's the max. no. photos I can post ti give you an idea:

To Cincy6:
I use the Android App TV Antenna Helper (free). I use it once I get everything set up at the site. It helps me know which direction and at what signal strength I can expect a station. It's a very easy and interesting app.

Just took delivery of our new FW and I have already done 2 mods. Necessary to us.
#1 peel and stick tiles UNDER the mattress (it slides now making it easier to make)
#2 room darkening curtains in the bedroom for those lovely neighbors who leave lights on all night.
I am sure we will have more as time goes on.
