New RV owner & forum member

Hello everyone. I just purchased a Jayco 2014 SLX Swift 154bh. It is my first RV. I just took it out over the holiday weekend, we really enjoyed it. I am already planning our next trip. I found this forum, and knew I had to join. There is some really good info here. I am excited to start doing mods and upgrades.

Congratulations! and welcome to The Forum! Just remember: doing the mods is only half the fun. The other half is that they work as you intended.

I am a newbie too and these guys and gals are a great source of wisdom and information. I have not even taken delivery on my new coach and already I am better prepared to hit the ground running.

Thanks to everybody for the warm welcome. Now since my trailer is brand new, with no mods or ad-ins done, what is the first or shall I say most important/helpful item/mod should I do?

First thing you should do is camp! Then have a pad of paper and make a list of "I wish I could have a..." Things.

My list has paper towel holder, led interior lights, more counter space, and growing. But have fun first!

One of the first and easiest mod I did was install a fridge fan. It helps to distribute the cold air through-out the fridge.

And, BTW,
