The best "Mod" we have made to our Aviator was to upgrade the China Bombs from D to E rated after they all blew up. Other than that, we went solar. 600 watts, 4 x 125 amp hr batts, digital temp gauges for frig and freezer mounted on the panel above the refrigerator. Don't have to open the doors to know the inside temps anymore. 3 scare lights.

for a long time I would put the greased ends in zip loc bags and then lay the bars in the camper shell, but the bags were always tearing and blowing away when not being used, and the bars were taking up space in the truck bed,....did this about a year ago and now the bars have a place to be,......they are out of the weather and out of the way, even at home, where they used to lay on the garage floor,....
