Re: Planned future modifications for my 19'

After bringing our 19 home the first thing I did was secure the propane cover on. I'm amazed it was still there after the 100km drive!!!
I used two strips of very coarse foam that I had left over from a skid plate I bought for my KTM but didn't use. I used 3M spray 90 (I think) contact cement to secure the pieces to the inside of the cover at the point closest to the bottles. I cut a matching sized slot in a piece of cereal box to prevent overspray. The result is amazingly solid with no movement back and forth yet it still allows easy removal when it's time to fill up the tanks. I think this is a better solution than using bungee cords.

Cheers,

Re: Planned future modifications for my 19'

We cannot open our front box without moving the propane cover forward because the cover is firmly planted against the box. We don't think our cover can go anywhere. Maybe it is all of that stuff we have in the box.

Re: Planned future modifications for my 19'

Here are some pictures of my propane cover with plastic along bottom, strap underneath and inspection porthole. Also a cover for your 7 way to keep it out of the elements.

Installed a battery LED motion light between the screen and door for those night time dog walks. Fits perfectly and illuminates the step. On other side between screen and door is a hoof for the dog leash.

Re: Planned modifications for my 19'

Added a wall sconce (led) on the bath wall for some ambiance. Finally installed my Progressive EMS system, everything seems to be working now.

Re: Planned modifications for my 19'

Jim,

Where did you get that nifty receptacle for the 7-way? I really like that addition.

Doug

Re: Planned modifications for my 19'

Here you go, I also coat the end with dielectric grease for protection from corrosion.

Neato, I want to know where you got the battery LED motion light that's between the screen and door.
