Jay Feather SLX 19XUD Mods

We have had our 19XUD for about 2 months and done a number of mods to it already!
  1. Added 2 front stabilizer jacks
  2. Added dual 20lb propane tank holder
  3. Added medicine cabinet
  4. Added LED strip light (wired to the 12V outside light)
  5. Added 2 inch receiver hitch for bike rack (bolted to the frame)
  6. Added towel bars in washroom
  7. Added MaxxAir vent cover (of course!)
  8. Removed some paneling to make front storage area bigger

I hopefully get some time this weekend when we are out to take some pictures of some of the mods and post them.

Next on the list:
- Camco Tornado Rotary Tank Rinser for black tank
- External speakers

I ran the LED 4 wire strip in to the wardrobe then behind the microwave and then out to the outside light. I put the controller in the outside light and ran the IR sensor out the bottom of the light. (Thanks 5swigerts for the idea!!)

Awesome! I'm hoping to pick mine up next week and have been thinking about similar mods!

EDIT: Just wondering where you bought the accessories from? Still new to the game, so any advice, info, etc would be appreciated!

The medicine cabinet will probably be one of the first mods, but is it like installing one in a home using drywall mollies?

I just picked up the medicine cabinet at HomeDepot. I just screwed it to the wall using the paneling join as a guide to locate the stud. I did add an extra magnet to the door to ensure it stayed closed during travel.

The LED lights I ordered from Amazon - "ADX LED-STRIP-NA Strip 16.4 Feet SMD Water-Resistant 300Leds RGB Flexible Led Strip Light Lamp Kit Plus 44 Key IR Remote Controller"

Awesome! Thanks for the reply.

How did you run power to the LEDs on the outside of the camper? Is there an easily accessible grommet?

I drilled a hole through the wall just below the gutter at the end of the awning in to the wardrobe. Then used silicone around the hole after to seal it up.
