Toy Hauler Improvement

Inside the TH garage the manufacturer installed a series of hooks. A few of the hooks were mounted into the wall studs and a few were not.



My concern was if someone hung something from a hook not held by the stud it would tear free and leave a big hole. I went over to our local Home Depot and bought a nice piece of hardwood. I measured (more than once, LOL) pre-drilled all of the holes including the wall studs. I did a quick sand and lacquer finish. I added more hooks for smaller items and also pre-drilled a second piece in case I wanted more hanging space.





The heaviest item I will probably hang will be our camelbacks (see 1st photo) usually full and ready to go.

Here's a website pic of the clock itself:

And the external speaker connectors (Speakons):


The internal sound system that the TV and other items use indoors:


The inverter install: a Xantrex 3000w:

...and the battery disconnect for the inverter:


The Tornado Black Tank Cleaner system:



The Polesandholders.com Flagpole install (one on each side of the ramp):


...and the new controller for the LiveWireWhips.com LED lights on top of the flagpoles:


Welll..that's enough for now. I also have shortened the sewer pipe, and done some of the other mods that others have done. I particularly want to look into the Fuel mod so I can run the genny off the 40gal tank.

Awning LED Strip Lights

I want to install LEDs along the front edge of my awnings. I am easily able to get power to the support arms but I'm looking for a way to run the small cables to the light stip permanently so the extend and retract with the awnings and don't bind up or pull. Any ideas? I was thinking maybe sewing the lead into the edge of the fabric???

Check out the carefree awning website. They have awning light strips and the led harness runs in the fabric edge.

Made a flag holder to fit underneath the tongue jack.


I removed the spare tire to work on the extra space above it. Once completed there was no way I could replace it by myself. I now store it inside the TH Garage.


I fabricated a plate and mounted it to the extra space above the spare tire storage area. On the plate I bolted a 30 Amp disconnect with a single throw, double pole breaker.


Next I mounted a 12 volt 2 gallon 140 psi air compressor.


Next I wanted to protect the garage walls from being scuffed by the quad tires. They fit with inches to spare. This was taken after the trim was removed with assistance from my little helper.


One side completed.


And the other side.
