Finally installed our 360 Syphon Vent caps on gray and black water vent pipes. Last summer we allowed our p-traps to dry out in storage and pewwwwwww, I never want to smell THAT again. Hope these work as advertised!! (And now we ALWAYS run water into the p-traps every month when we exercise the generator.)

I want to post to this thread, as much as anything, to get all the mods in one place. We bought an 07 Jayco 36RLTS three years ago from friends. They also sold us the F350 dually that pulls it. We got a good deal compared to NADA, etc. Since then I have added a hitch receiver for the bike rack to the pin box.
I changed both CRT TV's for flat screens and modded the bedroom one to fit in the covering door like a picture frame. The main one, I filled in the box with the slide and put a mount on the outside of the door. Wasn't sure about that one, but it has weathered some pretty bumpy roads without issue.
I changed the toilet for one with a bowl shape I liked better. Changed the shower head for an oxygenetics. Added a "secret compartment" for valuables not under the bed in the factory "safe". Changed the kitchen spray nozzle for a new one (second of two "Opps" from winter). Replaced the RV antenna and the crank twice (first of two "Opps").
Added shelves above the rear window, above the sink, pull-out in the pantry next to refer, and storage above the "Hall closet" (ours looks like a clock in mirror). Replaced the 5 n 1 stereo because the old one started sounding static. Had to replace the dinette slide motor for not functioning (that was a real doozy) and removed two of the four table chairs and turned the table 90 degrees.
Replaced both hide-a-bed and recliners with loveseats. Added a nice big foot-stool (Ottoman, to some). Added a 2300 watt inverter and associated safety duds like fuse, switch, etc. Replaced water pump for a failed one, from winter I think, but not this one. Added shelves to the front basement bay for organized totes.
Replaced useless manual vent above kitchen with a Maxxair power intake/exhaust 10 speed fan that can be open in the rain. Replaced lots of halogen with LED. Replaced a leaking black tank valve with new (pheeewwwww Don't want to do that again!). Replaced 7 yr old G614's with new (Ouch!). And added a post-it board/key rack inside the door.

Hardest was the black tank valve, and the old one had a golf ball sized wad of paper blocking the gate. No way to get it out, though. Next was the spray nozzle for the kitchen sink, as I couldn't fit any part of my body under the sink, nor could I see anything without a mirror. Most of these mods were fixes, but some to correct deficiencies (My wife and I still agree to disagree about what is a deficiency!)
Thanks for letting me post. Happy Trails!!

Looks like you rebuilt the thing oldtrojan66. If you are enjoying it, that's all that counts. Good looking job too!

I was unhappy with our pantry and bought some plastic tubs to use as slide-outs but I like your fix a lot better. Now I have another project.

Thanks

Had new EZ Flex suspension kits installed. Glad we did, the nylon bushings in the OE units had worn away after only 3 years. Never thought to have it checked. We had brought our 5er in to be it "blocked" as our new F350 was a bit higher than the old F350. While doing the work around the axle the tech checked the old units and found them badly worn. I love our 5er, but the OE part was sure a POS, because it was cheaper no doubt.

I've kind of re-thought the pantry idea. I saw one with a single slide at the top and bottom with a "clothes rack" style assembly of four shelves. The only downside of that is you pull all shelves out at once. We'll see what happens in the end..

I don't know if this counts as a mod or not, but I found two ES2000iS Yamaha generators at $300 off per unit. I also forgot to mention the TPMS for the RV and TV.

Is the volt meter, USB ports and 12 volt plug a store - bought panel or home made? I'd like to put one if them in our MH.
