Re: Planned modifications for my 19'

one more, if you look carefully you can see some power lines, these covers are wonderful at night with the stars/moonlight.

Re: Planned modifications for my 19'

Also found this cargo rack @ http://www.farmandfleet.com
$50 with free shipping. It is a kit and does fold up. but the spare keeps it from closing. I'm going to have to drill another hole for it to close. I think the bike rack is 300# capacity and this is advertised 500# but I would not put more than 200# on it. For bikes/firewood/grills if I'm not towing with the truck and using the Jeep. It weighs about 35-40#

CP if you look on this forum we posted a fix for the sliding table in the 19ft. CP it has already been done.
That was the West coast fix, this is the East coast fix.

I'm from the west coast but that was still funny Jim.

Re: Planned modifications for my 19'

Today was a nice day and I got a couple more things crossed off my list. The shower trim screws needed sealing so I removed and added sealant to them. I also removed the door and drilled a 2" hole and installed 2 small vents. I can now leave the door shut and there is circulation via windows. I keep the roof vent shut unless camping, to keep out dirt and rain. I also wanted to allow heat to enter the bath area in the winter via the vent. I added a 12v light in the bath for those nighttime visits and not be blinded by the stock wall light. Finally hooked up my 12v monitor alarm which is set for 11.90 volts. Adds a nice nice night time glow to the door area.

12 volt battery monitor

Jim
I have a similar monitor and always wondered if I should leave it plugged in at all times. I was afraid of draw so always unplug it. What are your thoughts?

Re: Planned modifications for my 19'

I see your point but I do not think it pulls any more than the propane detector. I leave mine in 365/24 hours and the draw does not show on my charge controller. Otherwise it is worthless. I have thought about putting a switch on the propane detector, maybe this winter when everything is off for periods.

Re: Planned modifications for my 19'

I really like the vent in the bathroom door Jim, a great idea and I think I will be on the look out for a vent to do the same, I tried having the max fan on with the bathroom window cracked and was surprised that the bathroom door sealed well enough that the fan wasn't able to pull the air past it so the vent would work well.

Re: Planned modifications for my 19'

The door is hollow and I was going to purchase some circular vents, but had some surplus wire mesh lying around. I cut the hole circular, so I can always replace these with a circular, more decorative cover.
