Travel trailer/TV tips, tricks and mods. Post your favorite!
« on: October 31, 2019, 05:24:04 PM »
So just picked up a new trailer, 2004 desert fox.
Got it for a decent price, was a little bit dirty inside, and needed new mattresses, and some minor repairs on the rear bed lift system.
I had budgeted 10k to buy a toyhauler, but ended up dealing a bit and picked this up for 5500$, so I got a little money to play with now!
Trailer already has 1 year old toyo open country ht tires.
I'm already planning on adding 2 6v batteries, and i've already got a nice inverter generator.

Trailer has a new roof put on this summer, and all major systems have been checked by sumner rv.

So, what are your must do mods on travel trailers/toyhaulers?!  I'm thinking a smaller inverter to run a few powered things off grid. Possibly a small solar panel to maintain batteries when in storage. Some sort of grip tape or sanded paint for traction on the ramp.

Were going to re-upholster the couch, ditch the dinette and put in 2 euro recliners in its place... lots of stuff planned so far to make it ours!

So what's your favorite mod, tip or trick?!

A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

Rooftop solar panel! Google systems from Windy Nation. Easy to install, great for bookdocking / dry camping. Then change all the 12v bulbs to LED and you can really go off the grid.

Swap the batteries to 6V golf cart batteries , throw away the factory onboard  " smart charger " and get a real charger like one from Progressive Dynamics. Get a set of X - Chocks
