2008 26BHS mods

I have read all the threads in this forum and have found a lot of new ideas (yes, I had some time on my hands). Here is what I have done to mine so far. Pictures to follow

- converted half of the front wardrobe to shelving for pot/pans
- added beverage holders beside the couch
- converted all interior lights to LED
- added 2nd shower curtain bar to back of tub/shower
- moved TP holder in bathroom (it was screwed to the door)
- added robe hooks in bathroom.
- remounted TV to a swing mount (couldn't see it from the dinette)
- added closet organizer to bed wardrobe
- added spring clips for WD hookup bar, lug wrench and broom.
- added battery LED lights to pass-through cargo area.
- upgraded to (2) 6v batteries.
- built kitchen box / cook station (for outdoor cooking, pancakes, bacon, etc)
- added vibration damping loop to water pump (this is only a 1/4 braided toilet supply line, so it might not be big enough)
- added false floor to kitchen sink cabinet to hide plumbing and level floor

Mods still in design phase
- better organize pass through storage and rear cargo compartment.
- lengthen queen bed
- add outside LED lights.

I'm searching for a way to put a shelf of some sort in my bathroom...no studs on the walls that it would work best on...afraid to put too much weight on a flimsy wall. Can you give me any suggestions?

on the 26BHS, I found two horizontal studs in the wall behind the toilet. the upper bunk screws into one of them, and the other is lower down. I am not sure if there are any on the wall with the door.

Look for tiny staples (1/8"), or evidence of putty (where they covered the staples). you will find a stud there.

Very impressive list. You have inspired me to get busy with some mods I have only been thinking about for a while. Looking forward to your pictures! LW

purchased and installed a refer fan. interesting gaget. it is suppose to be designed to blow air TO the cooling fins? and it isn't as quiet as I thought it would be. I can hear it run with the refer door shut.

mine has a small on/off switch and is wired through the refer drain hose to the ckt board in back. I can turn it off by either unhooking it or with the switch.

Neat. The one that fits my needs is the shower pole for towel. Thanks!

Do you have a pic of your holders, I can't seem to find any that might work.
