Congrats on your upgrade. I have a 2014 228BH, if you plan on using your shower a must is mounting the shower head were you can have both hands free, made one out of plexiglass that I found on Pintrest, folding table to hold micro wave and coffee maker. Mine did not come with the hanging canvas storage bins so I made using closet storage rack and 2 baskets that I got from Target. 1/2 inch to a 3 inch grey water adapter. I found that a must is a portable waste water storage tank. The DW and I spent 5 days at Garner State park in Texas and had no problems with anything. Even let a couple of Big Rigs borrow storage tank so they would not have to drag there rig to dump station.
You will find lots of great ideals here on this site. Happy Camping

I am new to camping and only have 1 night in mine so far, still buying things, just picked up a BAL Leveler new off of Amazon as i had reward points it was $55 shipped
The volt meter and USB charger is something that caught my eye right off. I have also been looking at the outside lighting thread, lots of cool ideas there. We pick it up tomorrow from the dealer and plan on going on a short trip this weekend to begin to get a feel for must haves, dreams and mods. The one thing I have discovered is I'm not a very patient individual... we made the decision 10 days ago and in the words of every ten year old everywhere, "I WANT IT NOW!"

For lighting i did this lil job
its angled 40 degree down so instead of having the ligt bounce off the awing if open its more directed down at the ground.
I was able to mount it just below the bag awning so it will be useful when the awing is open or closed.
I got the 10 inch version and there is a 20 inch version.

as for the USB/voltmeter i again went to my favorite site : Panel Dual USB Socket and Voltmeter for Boat / Rv / Car / Motor-home - External Mount : Sports & Outdoors
