Mod fever….

With another snow fall last night and temperatures below freezing, I'm chomping at the bit to start some modifications to BlackJack. First and foremost is winterizing and hooking up the water supply, turning on water heater and getting him ready for use.
As mentioned here Planned modifications to BlackJack….
I'm hoping, once it gets above 50 to install some electronic gadgets, lights on the outside step and inside entrance, extra light over the bed, light inside front storage box, weather radio install, red night light mod to the stock lights. I also want to install the roof gutters to keep the black streaks to a minimum, but have to wait until it gets warmer for the tape to activate. I also plan on installing some plywood and strips under the bed not only to protect the pump but also make access easier. A system of bins can then be easily slide on the smooth floor. I also have the lights to install under the bed for nighttime use. Pictures will follow, but the great thaw has to occur first. This thread will allow me to check off each item as completed.

never in doubt, often wrong

Good Luck Jim .. I can't wait to admire and gain inspiration ( steal ) from your efforts ... I've also been thinking about building a cage around all of the mechanical under the bed. I also saw a picture of a 19 or 21 with a light above the storage unit and have been thinking along those same lines myself.
