'16 32 BHDS Mods

The first 2 weeks of owning our new Jay Flight 32 BHDS, I have been pretty busy trying to get it ready for our S. Higgins Lk St Park (Michigan) trip which was this past Wed- today. While I still have a few things I would like to do, I definitely put a good size dent in the list! Lol

I don't have pic of eveything as some people have done the same, and/ or didn't take a pic yet.

We bought a Oxygenics shower head. So far it is a nice upgrade over the stock shower head. Also came with an on/off so we don't need to buy one now.

4 hook key rack mounted just below the monitor panel door.

Re-keyed the main door, bathroom door, and pass through locks so all the keys match. Keyed them all to the outdoor kitchen. Only other key needed now is for the outdoor shower which has a very short lock cylinder.

LED puck light under the bathroom cabinet for a night light. May add one or two more for night lights as well.

Shelving in the hall and front bedroom wardrobe. It would be nice if there was at least a shelf option to make this easier! Lol We didn't take a panel (wife didn't think we needed to) from the trailer to match the stain. It turned out fairly close. Do need a led strip light in the wardrobe though. Lights added to the list!

Bedroom Wardrobe



Hall Wardrobe



Hooks on back of bedroom slider doors. All 3 slider doors have 2 sets of hooks.



I moved the water pump "wall" under the sink that protects the pump from "stuff" back for a little more room. Also mounted a plastic bag holder underneath the sink. I would like to get rid of the knife block, but my better half doesn't like the "rv knife block", and not sure what else to do...



Fence post sleeve mod. For when the weather doesn't cooperate we have a large tarp to allow us to still enjoy being outside. One post I have 4- 6' pvc "tent poles" to support the tarp along the sides. One post stores the 7' GPL folding ladder. Last post is for the sewer hose. I have 2- 4" u shaped gutters inside for when the hose needs some support. Inside the bumper we carry our hot dog forks on one side, and the fire tongs and poker on the other side. Due to the weight of the ladder and the pvc poles I mounted the fence post sleeve using Uni Strut. Hopefuly it won't be going anywhere it isn't suppose to!



Bumper mounted clothes line.



Still on the mod list:
Main door step light on it's own circuit and a light at the bathroom door steps. Battery switch to prevent all the draw from killing the battery.
Probably a gel topper for the mattress.
Rear cargo receiver hitch if it ever shows up (on order) for the bikes.
May move the outdoor kitchen fridge a little so the door will fully open allowing removal of the shelves if needed.
Still need to find a place to store the Camp Chef cast iron griddles.

Additional pics in the 32 BHDS Mods link in my signature.

Nice looking mods. I'll be borrowing a couple of them.

Bluie5,

TY!

The rear cargo hitch showed up today!!!

I did forget to mention a couple mods:
Have a vent cover for the bathroom vent, just need to get time to mount it.
An extra set of stabilizer jacks just in front of the front tires is on the list as well.

My rig is quite long too. I've been planning on adding the extra stabilizer jacks.

Nice mods. I'll have to look into rekeying my locks. It's a pain to have three different keys for the doors now. Plus my keys seems to be hard to turn and we found last time that several of the keys opened multiple locks. Weird.


Did you just know how to rekey the locks, or was there a link here you followed?
Thanks,
Mike

TY to all!!! Been a little busy since we got back from our trip so I haven't worked on any of the other mods yet....maybe next week I will get a chance.

Mike,

I went to the website that was printed on the sticker on the door, RVlocksandmore.com. I had a local locksmith order 2 sets of cylinders (w/ dead bolt), and 2 matching cam locks all coded to the outdoor kitchen. To replace the cylinder, you need the Yellow "change out" key. That is why I had the locksmith order it. Only him or a dealer can order it to change the cylinders.

I did all the work instead of dragging the trailer to him. Just had to drop off the yellow key back to him once I was finished. Maybe your local dealer has the yellow key. If so, maybe they would let you borrow it to swap out the locks. Or if you buy it "for them", you get to use it, then let them keep it. It's only a few dollars.

I also ordered 2 keys w/ a small led in them to be able to unlock the trailer at night if needed and no lights on or flashlight on hand. Was only a few dollars so I figured why not.

Husker, your welcome! Sorry for the very slow reply!!!

3 bikes on our bike rack on the Jayco rear cargo hitch this past w/e was a success! It will be nice to not have the bikes in the truck bed. Made room to take the WSM this w/e so we could have some pulled pork!





Bike rack even cleared the driveway when pulling out. It is a 4 bike (we have the 2 bike add on kit) tray style fork mount rack.

Here is the rack set up for only 2 bikes on our 'Nox when we had it.





It does not come straight out of the hitch, but bends up about 4" or so.
