Most of these little improvements came from ideas I got while reading IRV2:

Xantrex RS400 Sine Wave Inverter
LED lights on inside steps
Black tank wash out
Vent on Black tank exhaust
Made my lamp desk for steering wheel
Added a cable runner for my four legged buddy to awning hardware
Added TV in front bay outside
Added pull out drawer under oven for pots
Stainless exhaust tips bought but not installed yet
Static cling Palm Tree on side door
Added speaker system for MP3 in outside bay
Assembled Watts water regulator hook up
Bought Aventa II tow bar from suggestions here
Bought brake buddy from suggestions here
Bought heat strip for water hose due to suggestions here
Bought Power Surge Guard from suggestions here
Used IRV2 to help guide me in purchasing Satellite system

On my short to do list is a lot of improving storage using PVC and to have the top of the front side windows tinted.

BIG TIME HELP from IRV2:
Workhorse replaced my shocks free
Workhorse added a cooler kit to my dog house to cool the wires

You mention PVC storage.

When I got my Intruder I slung a piece of 4" PVC under the back for hose storage... Imagine my feelings when the fittings on the end of the hose would not fit in the pipe (I now use it for other stuff) So I slung a length of six inch right beside it. This is slung transverse about 8 feet long, with caps on each end, one permenate one with a clean out plug They bolt to existing holes in the frame (no drilling of frame) and on each one I drilled a pair of holes in the BOTTOM of the pipe (in line with the holes in the top where the bolts go) big enough to pass the wrench socket to reach the bolts.

When done I reamed that bottom hole out just a bit and solvent welded (PVC PIPE "Glue") 90 degree elbows in pointed back (Drain holes should any water get in the storage pipe)

Work great

Thanks John. Sounds like a good set up. Since I have the little bitty 19.5" tires, I will have to see if I have room since a spare is mounted there.
I would prefer to do what you did but if no room, will have to resort to the rear bay that goes all the way across and mount it to the top and leave the bottom open for other stuff.
