I have the normal bubble level on the side of the 5er next to the switch for the leveling legs. On the back side I put a metal piece of metal rod in the resess and put it back in place then I will place a small neodenyuium magnet{sticks to the installed metal rod} over the bubble location at the release hight of the 5er so when it is time reattach the 5er I have a place to set the height for hook up. I do go a half bubble lower than the release height

In our previous RV it was the residential refrigerator. In the current coach, it was a requirement before buying. Dishwasher was first mod made so I guess it was most important.

Here is mine
I added a gas strut to the entry door. Every time I use it I enjoy not worrying about the door swigging open too far. It opens and stays open at a 90 degree angle. With barely a little more effort it closes smoothly.
I have had a macerator added to every coach I have owned since 2006. I love them - no mess, no fuss, no hassles. Easy clean out and clean up and I have never had stinky tanks either - plus not having to worry about how close or uphill or not to a dump is great.

Our best mod was getting rid of our uncomfortable, junk collector, dual bed/couches. Replaced with a set of recliners, and a desk. We use this setup every single day. See our video from our Travel Channel on how it turned out on our 2014 Newmar Dutch Star model 4369. I have started the video for you to exclude the non-sense!

12 volt outlets

I added five home-made 12-volt outlets in various places around my trailer. I can now charge cell phones or power little fans wherever needed.

Solar panels, put on 4 for 510 watts.

Talking A black tank clean out

I got tired of having to attach a hose every time I wanted to clean the black tank. Directly plumbed a connection with a valve and a one-way fitting to keep it from flowing in the wrong direction for safety. Now I just turn the quarter turn valve when I want to wash out the black tank. Only one item to remember, Donít forget to turn it off!! Otherwise you have a potential mess in your bathroom.

Added steering damper and stiffer rear sway bar to my F53 chassis. It's the difference between driving limp-wristed all day and just sitting back to enjoy the scenery along the route!

When we found the exact trailer we wanted it didn't have auto level. That lasted a year b4 adding Lippert 6 leg hydraulic auto level.
