getting ready for a few mods

once i get my 2516G back from CW after some warranty work, Ill start modding

We camped in in 1 night, and so far so good, but there can been room for improvements.

First up, I am going to add an LED Patio Light, I found a 24 led unit that is just under 10 inches long, and uses about 5.5 w of power to produce 350 lumens of light.
My plan is to mount it on the roof, center line from front to rear under the bag awning. I plan on tapping power from the Fantastic Fan as there is already 12V power there, and putting a surface mount switch on the roof to operate it

Then I am going to do a fridge baffle and fan mod that many of you have done, I think I am going to go with 1 120mm fan with a on100/off85 thermostat. so it will be automatic regardless of the power source.

I already put a batter tender on-board to keep the battery topped off while parked in the garage, but i am considering a 100w solar if we start to camp at the beach or state parks that don't have hookups

I am also considering doing a conversion to a few 110/ usb recepticles as we have iphones and ipads that would need to be charged and it would be nice to not have the "wall warts"

and the final mod i have planned is changing the thermostat to a digital one.

so far I only have the LED light, and 120mm fan/ thermostat, so if anyone has inputs on the other planned mods I appreciate the input
