Finished up the rear jacks and the center jacks as well! I did decide to mount the centers with the 2x2 square tube. Main reason is less extension needed, and less blocking.





Pretty happy with the results so far! Just need to take a trip for the real test....

Here is a few pics showing the bracket for the clothes rack on the rear bumper.







The 1" square aluminum tube slides over the "peg". Works great!

Installed a led clearance light at each step, up underneath on the crossbar facing the ground. I ran wire from the rear light all the way up to the battery, connecting the front light inline. I installed a waterproof switch just above the Blue Sea on/off switch in the battery box. Forgot to take a pic of the switch, will try to remember next time I'm over where we store our 32.



I didn't remove the factory step light on the front steps yet. You can see the new led light just above it.



Night pic.





Turned out like I hoped, (looks better in person) the night pic isn't the best. Was concerned about the lights being to bright, but that's not the case. Just wish Jayco had a seperate switch for the step light. Not sure why it is wired in with the awning lights, that are ridiculously bright.

Loving it. Not to sidetrack, but in the stabilizer pictures, looks like your suspension spring hangers are welded to 2x2 tubing. Mine aren't so just curious if it came like that?

TY!!!

Yes, they are from the factory. Part of me wonders if it's for ride height or to help strengthen the frame. Our last tt ('01) frame actually fracked just in front of the front spring hangers and just behind the rear ones. There is even some reinforcement on the top side of the bottom of the frame (if that makes sense??? Lol). I will try to grab a pic next time we are over at the 32....

Most all now have the additional flat bar bracing at the hangers (above bottom flange) since there was so much flex there. I believe that's the reinforcement you refer to. Just hadn't seen the tubing. That tubing would've made adding cross bracing on mine a little easier. I was just camping next to two late model 32's and never really looked at the suspensions.

Yes, bottom flange.... The words were escaping me this morning due to coming back to reality after a w/e camping trip at the family "ruin"! Lol

Th next project is possibly a dimmer system for the awning lights, and maybe reiforcing the front queen bed a little.... And figuring out a better flag pole set up!

Not sure this is a true "32 mod", but if any of you have ever tried using the "Big Bobber Cooler", you know it takes water on pretty easy, melting any of the ice you have pretty quickly.

Here is the solution:



Tube is for a 23x8.5/9.5x12 tractor tire.

Worked awesome going down the Cedar River in Gladwin this past Sat.

nice modifications thanks for sharing! We are considering the shower head as well, and the shelving in the closets now.

Here is the Jayco factory rear cargo hitch part number for those wanting to add it to their rig.

I would suggest having the dealer verify its the correct part before ordering!!!



Haven't finished any new mods since the last post. Unless buying a new house that has room to keep our 32 here in the driveway going back to the "barn" (16x30 separate garage)!!! If so it was one expensive mod!!! 😂

Just have some landscaping to do to get it back there. Hopefully just trimming a tree and not removing it, removing: a bush, a couple fir trees, and then will go from there depending on room around the tt.

And then installing a 30a outlet to be able to run the a/c full bore if needed.
