1. Solar
2. Oxygenics shower head
3. Pillow top mattress cover
4. O.C. awning pole supports/tie downs
5. LED lighting fixtures

Seems like a pattern is emerging. A good hot shower.... decent nights sleep without having to worry about your awning blowing away or running your batteries down if you fall asleep with the lights on....

I'll take the win

1. Replaced factory pin box with Tri Glide pin box
2. Added Equa Flex suspension and Correct Track alignment system
3. Installed Dirt Devil Central Vac system
4. Reconfigured satellite/cable wiring in basement, added DirecTV SWM and power inserter and added satellite outlet in bedroom. One coax line in to the docking station and I've got satellite signal to entertainment center, bedroom and basement.
5. JT Strong Arms

One of these items would have been replaced with my 50 Amp Progressive Industries surge protector but I went with the portable unit, not the hard wired so it's not really a mod.

Sounds like a lot but now everything works the way I want. These are all important to me I couldn't just pick 5 impossible to do, I feel they are all important to me, until I find some thing else. My trailer wouldn't be my trailer, Sorry. If I had to pick I guess it would be the 5 things OC did for me and I didn't do myself.
