For me, adding solar panels and a whole house inverter and 4 golf cart batteries made my MH more independent. I can boondock for around 2 weeks before I run out of water.

Actually there is more, a good battery monitor like trimetric 2020 or 2025 as far as I am concerned should be standard equipment for all RV's.

A good surge protector and AC power monitor should also be standard equipment for all RV's. Progressive Industries has a good reputation and a lifetime warranty on all of there surge protectors.

Crossfires for the dually tires lets me look down at a glance and know that my tires are properly inflated.

I just got back from lake city Colorado. You don't need ac there man it was cool and in the low 40's at night and 60s and 70s during the day. Lots of places to boondock. When we retire Im sure we will have solar too. 2 weeks is pretty good.

WOW looks like a big project. I was looking at the banks powerpack for mine but still on the fence. I have a thread to seek more info.

-Link Cat's Eye for the rear dual tires
-OBDLink LX to get engine parameters (torque, hp, mpg, etc)
-Stainless Steel exhaust extensions

To do list:
-Turbocharge the V10
-Banks exhaust system
-22.5" wheels
-trade out the 5 speed tranny for the new 6 speed one
-etc
