Thanks! yah, the flowers were not our style at all! The tropical matches the rest of the motorhome & our style.

Bought a new 2012 Thor ACE in September last year. Since then I have done or plan to do the following mods:
  1. Removed the jacknife sofa and used the space for a computer table. Replaced the lost seating with 2 reclining office chairs which are comfortable enough for watching TV etc.
  2. Added spacers to the top of the TV mount to tilt the screen downwards and improve viewing angle.
  3. Installed Xantrex 2000 watt Inverter to power computer, also rewired outlet at passenger seat computer shelf to use inverter power.
  4. Made a laundry chute by cutting a 6x6 inch hole in the shelf beside the bed, framing it out and hinging the lid. Laundry drops into a basket in the basement storage.
  5. Installed Seelevel II tank monitor system.
  6. Replaced the 30 amp shore power connector with 50 amp, also a voltage regulator and hard wired surge suppressor. Line 1 goes to the existing wiring, Line 2 goes to a new breaker box which supplies 3 additional outlets and item 8 below.
  7. Ordered 2 digital panel meters which will display voltage and current draw on each line of the 50 amp supply.
  8. Installed wiring for second air conditioner in bedroom. AC unit is on order.
  9. Installed Hott Rod electric water heater.
  10. Installed Hydro Clean tank rinsers on black and grey tanks.
  11. Installed gas struts on all 4 cargo doors on driver side. Thor omitted to provide any way of keeping the doors open, presumably so they do not catch under slide. I keep a post-it note with NO in big letters to stick over the slide switch when any of the doors are open.
  12. Installed PressurePro TPMS on MH and toad.
  13. Installed weather monitor on roof. Displays wind speed/direction, outside temp etc on remote display inside MH.
Enough to be going on with.

We have a 2004 Monaco diplomat
1) did not like the looks of the a/c on ceiling ,so built one that looks better and holds a regular filter
2)we are close to full time,so i removed the sliding doors between the b/r and bath and built 2 light weight cabinets floor to ceiling for can goods,extra storage for what ever we need.This also keeps weight over the rear axel.
3) Added a wireless door bell i got from lowes for $19 works great.Better than someone pounding on door and can hear in b/r

While the batteries were out for the winter, I cleaned up and refinished the house battery tray.

That's pretty cool, rexlaw71. Does that company pay you to drive around? I'd think that'd be a great way to make some money.
