Step Shoe Rack

Easy to make storage shelf for shoes under steps. Keeps them off the ground and somewhat protected from rain. I tried plywood, but rain drops would bounce into shoes.
Semi truck mudflap makes a good entry mat.

And another backsplash! Now all we did was cover up the existing black plastic (metal?) that was there. These are not the top of the line with real stone but they look ok for a 98 Georgie Boy! You can order them here from Amazon, about $32 for 10 of them!

Looks great and something I'm looking at for our 5er.

Installing over latex painted walls - the AMAZON info (fine print!) says to use 3M adhesive

Exhaust Modification to keep my toad cooler

When traveling to Freightliner Custom Chassis in Gaffney, SC, I was pulling my 2005 Liberty connected to our Forza 36G with a Blue Ox tow bar. Less than 30 miles from home, my TPMS started alarming due to a high temperature/pressure in the right front tire of the Jeep. The tire pressure had increased from 35 to 42 psi, and that tire was 20 degrees hotter than the other 3 tires. I pulled off, and let the tire cool down so that the alarm stopped sounding, and realized what the issue was.

Turns out that the exhaust on the Forza in directly in line with the right front tire of the toad. All the exhaust heat is directed back onto the right front corner of the Jeep, making the tire heat up, and getting the plastic bumper quite warm as well.

Since I have another trip coming up next week, I decided to make some changes to prevent this issue, and stop the heat from burning up my toad. I removed the OEM exhaust tip, which turns straight down at the right rear of the coach, and installed a 4" female to female adapter, using the original exhaust clamp.

Next, I installed a chrome 18" long elbow 4" OD into the adapter, and mounted it tightly with a Torctite 4" band type exhaust clamp. The elbow turns out to the right side of the coach, and should put the exhaust down the right side of the toad, and not directly in front of it. I apologize that a couple pics are sideways, but they were not that way in my computer.

Anyone else have this issue?

Upgrades to RV fixtures

Hello, we are picking up our 2011 KZ Sportsmen camper tomorrow 7/23/19, and just curious if anyone has upgraded their RV fixtures, such as sink faucet or shower head, or even water lines to stainless steel. (Not that youíd need to fix this stuff if it isnít broke), but for instance the sink faucet is all plastic, and the shower head is plastic, I do understand about keeping the RV lightweight, but do these items wear out quicker than home fixtures or not? Sorry this is all new to me, thanks for all the advice and input.

My 2007 5er came with residential sink faucets kitchen and bathroom. Shower head was plastic and I changed that to residential along with the controls.

I just recently upgraded our kitchen and bathroom faucets and shower head with ones we bought at our local Menards (like Home Depot). Pretty straight forward replacement , just need to be a little bit of a contortionist!

The First thing we changed was the shower head. Oxygenics makes one specifically for campers that changes the water pattern such that you FEEL like you are getting much more but is actually putting out less -- win - win - win for water usage, gray tank, and shower experience. We've had it for three years now and love it.
