Our first MH and had it a year before I learned enough to check the ride height. Don't think it had been check since the factory. Improved the ride 100 %. Also added the Safe-T steer. Eliminated the wandering, drive with one hand now. Replaced the king bed with a queen and added a bedside cabinet on DW's side. Huge difference in live ability in the bedroom. MCD shades all around. M&G braking system (love this one too) so easy to use and works so well. Amish CU with halon in the back for peace of mind.
Coach has great floor plan for us and now works even better.

Converted dinette for 4 to 2 and also made it a love sit when down instead of bed. Builted flush wall mounted table for 2 on other side. Added locks to some drawer to keep shut when driving. Took out shower folding door and replaced with the entend a rod and certain. That's it so far. As this is our last motorhome we are making it for us and not so much for resell. Good Luck!!!

Over the years I have made a lot of modifications to our toys (boats, TT, and now MH). I've made a effort to only make mods that would be either a positive for re-sale or removeable. With the exception of one TT, we have purchased used. Up until the HM, I have been able to figure out what was done by the PO. Unfortunately the MH has so many so complicated systems I have not always been successful in figuring the mods out. The PO did not leave manuals from their upgrades and they are not available on-line. Some examples:
-Adding several solar panels (two distinct sizes, appearances) and a controller. I cannot tell if they work with while the battery switch if off in the engine bay or if they are wired to re-charge house and chasis batteries
-A lamp above the transmission selector panel. I figured it to be some indicator that the brakes on a toad were on.
-A dash rocker switch labled; "Pass Shade" that doesn't operate the shade.
-Additional A/V cables behind the bedroom "tube" TV.

Most of the time I enjoy the "challenge" and it does force me to learn more about the systems on the MH.

Do you have a pic of your sideboard/storage and was it custom made, etc. I think I might like one of those. And any other pics of your mods.

My 2012 HR 36sbt Vacationer didn't come with HDMI cables for the three LED tv's when built, just old RCA cables. The wife and I wanted HD for these tv's plus our BluRay/3D DVD player, so I installed four new HDMI cables and added for each Tv a new multi componet wall plate to utilize all connections from the Tv's.
