Silver I would love to visit at Goshen and if it possible I would love to see your MH. Several items you have done are high on my list. Also I would like one of your baskets from the pantry. Let me know what you want for one and we can settle up at Goshen.

Seems like we are heading from the sublime to the ridiculous here.

Is your coach your hobby??

Like the guys that buy a $30K HD motorcycle and then compete with each other as to who can spend the MOST $$$ on extra chrome, leather, etc.

But I am already conceding defeat, that being the case!!

I won't be at Goshen but I really only made a few changes.

Changed out the outside shower head to a laundry faucet.
Added LED strip lights under both passenger slides and under door awning.
Cut a notch in the electrical bay for my 50amp cord so I wouldn't have to use that hole anymore. This was simple and made that operation much easier.
In motion satellite.
TPMS monitor.

Cajun, please post a picture of the notch you cut in the electric bay of the coach. I had to change the plug on my cord and using the hole is a real chore.

I too hate fishing the power cord thru the hole on the bottom... Most of the times I just go out thru the door and let the door rest against the power cord.

The technology is changing every day and it is impossible to keep up without going broke.

Silver, all at a reasonaable cost too. I found your 4-ch dvr on ebay.

Are you side cameras near the front, looks like one is in front of the entrance door?

It would be sweet if we could wire our existing cameras to work. Did you investigate that?

Silver, I'd love to see pictures and hear a little more about the auto reel for the power cord, Pantry shelving, and the supplemental cooling fan for the refrigerator when you have a chance. All things I'm considering. Thanks

RNuzzolo, I don't know how much room you have in your power bay, but in my '14, I tried every which way to fit one in without any success.

Thanks. I also do not have a lot of room and that's why I'm curious about what Silver did to get his in the space. Sure would like to figure it out. Power cord is tough especially in the colder weather.

I ended up putting in a hughes autoformer and use a cord that I plug into it when I hookup. I store it in a larger compartment when not being used. Makes it much easier to move it around.

My cameras are below the side cameras. I did not look into using the cameras on the coach for several reasons. First I wanted the side cameras lower than the slides so I would get a picture under the slide when extended for security reasons. No sense getting picture of slide side. The new cameras are small and inexpensive (need mirror image cameras). The Voyager cameras are powered from the Jensen radio, I did not want to have the radio on every time I wanted the CCTV/DVR on.

Just seamed easier to have a complete separate system. I can also use the side camera from the CCTV/DVR when backing up. Comes in handy.

I investigated several wireless camera for the rear but finally ran hard wire as the two I purchased were not reliable enough over the distance and through the coach wall. I ran the camera cable along the frame next to the heater hose on the passenger side of the coach. Was that fun.

Thee cord reel is one of the nicest modes I have made. I was a little hesitant due to cost but it sure beats struggling with that monster cord especially when cold. I even put on a remote but found I don't need it. My 50 amp progressive power management is above the cord reel.

The frig fans are two 3 inch computer fans. I am in the process of upgrading to a 51/2 inch fan only because the current fans are a little load. New fan is due in the mail this week and I have built a duct so it will blow air in the same location. I will have pictures when done.

The pantry takes advantage of the full depth of the cupboard. I build a ladder system and slid it into the space. Made it easier rather than trying to mount the slides in the tiny space.
