What an awesome idea! I have seen those "under bed" storage containers and will look for a couple. That's what I love about these forums. Learn so much from people who have "been there, done that."

Now, who has a great idea for the narrow/deep pantry. I'd love to install some type of pull-out!

Great mods.

On your pictures, you have a secondary antenna mounted on the TV antenna; I donít see any wire coming out of it.

What do-you use it for and where did you get it.

Thanks! You are correct; I was showing the bracket I made for my wifi antenna/receiver. I'll put an annotation on the pictures. I recently completed that mod and have yet to run the cable. Trailer is in storage and we are super busy so it'll be later this summer. This setup is the Alfa Camp Pro kit. I bought mine at: Alfa WiFi Camp Pro -- long range Wi-Fi repeater kit -- R36/Tube-(U)N/A. I'll post pictures of the whole installation and write a review of the kit once completed.

On the LED bedroom lights - did you drill the holes first and then rob power from the center light with a short run? Where did you find the lights? Is the power switch in the light?

Also, I just posted a new thread about a mod. We do a lot of dry camping and why there is no inside switch for the gas side of the hot water heater just blows my mind. I'm going to run one into the main control panel like you did your battery monitor.

I used these: https://smile.amazon.com/Mings-Mark-...+reading+light

Yes, took power from the center light and yes, they each have their own power switch. One note of caution, as I was trying to determine where to mount the lights, I was pressing on the panel and felt a solid backing (cross braces) in two locations. One on the left side and one on the right side. Removing the center light, I used a wire to determine exactly where the cross braces on the left & right side were. I made sure that one of the reading light mounting screws would go into the brace but the reading light wires would be clear to the center light. I used a small plastic expanding wall anchor to secure the second screw that was into the panel but did not have any back bracing.

Did you see the remote power switches that you could use with those bedroom lights? You've got me going now!

I didn't but I thoroughly enjoy finding new items (projects) to make our "home away from home" more comfortable!
