So I installed the Stromberg extend a shower rod. Works great, the only thing is the curtain hangers hang up a little bit on the joints. Not a big deal for us, as we are not moving the curtain on a regular basis. Just have to be careful when sliding. Also install the water guards on the corners of the tub.

All of me fits in the shower, except for my arms. The Stromberg shower curtain arm made it so much easier.

Thanks guys I have replaced the thermostat that is a great upgrade very easy to do. I have also put in the dimmer that upgrade was not a satisfying. It works but enough to take the bright glare out of LED lights but flickers when you are on battery power and run the water pump. Plus it does not seem have a complete range of very bright to very dim. I think we are up to about 60 upgrades on our trailer.

Convenience additions to our 24RKS

Over the last year, DW and I have made a few additions for our convenience. These include replacing the two coat hook style hooks in the WC with a bar with 5 retractable hooks, adding LED reading lights above the bed, removing the hair dryer and replacing it with a battery operated make-up mirror, and making a cutting board that fits in the sink. Several more things are planned as my wife and I always enjoy doing the little things that make it uniquely ours.

on our 2016 20FQ. Took one long weekend trip and love the change. The dinette came apart and out in undamaged pieces and can be easily reinstalled. I only had to make new removable side panels under the two small laminate shelves.

Just a FYI: your 7 pin connector will have back up light. “Center pin” nice work, good job. Welcome.
Nice work, Gert. Love the side illumination idea! Another FYI, for those less inclined to do the full conduit exercise, in my 2019 25RDS, I discovered that the fine folks at ORV ran the yellow wire (backup lights) all the way from the umbilical back to the driver side brake/turn light. The Platinum option includes backup lights, but even for the standard trim package, the wires are there. I popped off the turn signal, burrowed a little tunnel a few inches upward through the foam wall, then added a surface mount LED flood light just above the turn signal. Works great, looks right at home near the factor turn signal, and only took a few minutes since the wiring was trivial. On the driver side, I found that there are actually 2 yellow wires stubbed out at the turn signal. I'm assuming the 2nd one runs from the driver side light to the passenger side light. For now, I've only installed one on the driver side, but i spliced the two together assuming I'll want another one some day.

Right after I bought my trailer, a piece of trim inside the cabinet over the bed cane loose. I realized I could run some wire from the existing light, through the gap where the trim was supposed to go. The inside of the cabinet isn’t as deep as the outside, so I was able to drill a hole where I was going to mount the lights and fish the wire down to them.

About removing the dinette - eating at the dinette was about 30 minutes per day use. Many more hours are spent having a morning coffee, relaxing, watching tv, reading the news, or even taking a nap. None of those activities are comfortable or enjoyable sitting on a bench at a dinette. For eating, tv trays are your friend.

Did the same shower curtain rod swap out along with the tub splash guards. Both great things to do for very little $$ or time. However, when putting in the splash guards it turns out that the outside wall of the shower is a bit more than 90 degree from the side of the tub. Took a fairly thick bead of the sealant to fill the ever-increasing gap as you went up. We'll see how it does once it sets up and cures. I think it will be OK though.
