Also wouldn't be a bad idea to view when I'm away from the camper.
I have (2) 2.4GHz 12V cameras. Being standard video format, the receiver antenna has an RCA plug which goes directly into our portable DVD Player or HDTV.....catch is - the wireless distance is rather short and you need 12V supply for the receiver.

What your interested in (as I understand it) is wireless IP Cameras with memory which can upload to / be addressed through the cloud by a PC program or phone app. I'm not there yet...that technology isn't cheap yet - whereas, I have always been cheap...

For starters, I'm trying new shackles. If I'm not happy with the result I'm off to suspension shop!

I would say I am just about done with my modifications (at least for now). I do want to study the parasite battery drains and add a power kill switch to the radio, for when we are boondocking.

I was able to raise my old Komfort trailer 2-1/2 inches by flipping the axles with a spring over axle conversion kit similar to this one.

although I was able to reuse the old u-bolts and tie plates. I did it in my driveway with 3 hydraulic jacks, a can of wd40, and a bit of elbow grease. Just do one side at a time.

Thanks, Tim....Axel flip is an option. Jayco uses it on many of the "Baja" Series Swifts.... on my axel it nets @ 4.5" of lift (which I feel is a little too much). About 2 inches of lift would make enough difference for me to improve septic performance and knock out some rear skid dragging.

Installing as many LED lights as possible!
Installing 'Smart Tile' backsplash in kitchen and bathroom.
Give it a good, scrubbing bath.
Get DH to check all the seals/roof, etc...

Those are all priorities on my list. Our first outing is first weekend in March.
