Without a doubt, replacing the NoCold with residential refrigerator in previous Dynasty. While we really liked the Dynasty, we love our Navigator even more, especially for boondocking with the 900W of solar I added but that doesn’t qualify as ever day.

One Mod that you did that you love everyday.

Two mods, one in the house and one in the chassis.

HOUSE MOD - removed a couch and replaced it with this:

I now have a printer and a computer on this desk. Also removed the TV from above the windshield.

CHASSIS MOD - had Allison reprogram the transmission so it would NOT shift down to lower gears when the Jake Brake engaged. Best driveability mod ever!

Entry Light

I Tee'd into the wire that goes to the little orange light under my steps and ran the wire up to a very bright LED light in my stair well.
Now whenever I open the door, the step well and also the opposite wall is brightly lit up and it's easy to see the interior light switch.
Happy Glamping

After our trip to Arizona last winter, I decided I/we needed more room in the bed. We have a 2016 Quantum ws31 with queen bed. I did some modifications to make it a short king. Measurements are a square 72"x 72". Works very well.
I also placed a couple of these inside the entry door. https://www.amazon.com/Rechargeable-...ateway&sr=8-13

I'm pleased with my sewer hose & elbow set up. I never liked the idea of carrying anything sewer related in an inside compartment even if in a bucket/bin. My tube that is attached below the wet bay (Under coach) houses two 15' sections of hose, connector, AND the elbow fitting that attaches to CG sewer.

Nice mod. I put a 6" tube down the length of you propane tank bay, runs side to side (8') and it can accommodate a double length sewer hose. The built in one on the water bay is only 4 feet.

I wired the coach Step button so when the Step switch is On and you open the door, the Step light come on and the Rocker Switches (lighted ID labels on each switch) at the entrance come on.

That way when I open the exterior door at night I can see which switch (in the bank of 5 switches) is for the interior lights and the inside steps are lit.

- I would say the best mod anyone can do, who have lead acid batteries, is to add the battery watering system. Acid eliminated and battery life extended because it's no longer a chore to fill batteries.

- On my current and last coach, I added the SaniCon macerator system (have now been using it for 16 years) with switches for the drain valve and SaniCon inside the coach. I can now dump from inside whenever it's needed. Really nice before departing, once outside, the tanks are already drained and ready to go.

- Added electric bed lift to the king sized bed. No more breaking my back to lift the bed and access the storage. With the wireless remote....I just push a button. $200 project.

Threw out folding 2" thick/4" thick mattress, with seam at my hip, and built a hindged 3" spacer. Then we got a 7" memory foam mattress. Built it all while traveling south. Much nicer to sleep on.

Second best thing was removing the PO installed front Sumo springs. Took out the belly bouncing rebound after a bump.
