2015 Jay Feather X17Z Mods
This is my first jump into "threads" so be gentle. My wife and I had a Jayco Baja Popup from Manteca Trailer for several years and enjoyed it, but decided we wanted a shower and some of the other conveniences. Their Jayco Feather is just what fit the bill. We go over several California Mountain Passes and needed something short and light.
With the following mods it is a joy to use: had the dealer flip the axle for more clearance, added two, 7000 lb capacity stabilizing jacks to the front (they bolted in), a battery cut out was added to the side of the battery box, a clothes rod was put across the shower (it can be removed to use the shower, or just slide the clothes out of the way), installed a review camera for traveling and parking, glued steel strips in the front storage area so I can attach small canisters that hold fishing gear, extra fuses, etc. with magnets in the canisters. I also put a portable solar light inside, while the Jayco is stored, so I can just go in without turning on the battery. When camping the light is attached to the bed platform closing levers and acts as a motion sensor. I also use a section of plastic gutter to protect the awning.
Sorry if I got carried away, hope someone can use the info. The guys at Manteca Trailer did the axle mods, I did the rest. Planned future mods: magnetic door latch, cargo net retainers for open shelving, overload springs for my F150, and I'm open to suggestions!??
