I like how the Vizio worked out. I went with a 22" LED Haier in our master and although the factory mount worked out fine, the picture quality is not nearly as good as the Vizio. I'm going to change my 32" RCA in the living room for a 40" Samsung (as soon as the holiday sales start) and plan on putting the 32 in the cargo bay. Maybe then the wife will let me think aboout putting a better tv in the master.

Nice work. On mine there is a drawer and a cabinet under the frig, but the frig may be smaller on the Jayflights allowing for both.

Okay here are the photo's of some of the Mods I have done to date. They include JT's, extra scizzor jacks and rails and ladders for my little ones to access the bunks. I am going to stain the rails and ladders I just did not want the bunk house to smell like stain while camping this summer as it seems to take a few weeks for the VOC's to drop. That's a winter project.

Looks great.

I have a set of JT Stabilizers to install too. I assume that, with the bike rack, that was the only way to get them on the back?

You might be able to get them on somewhere else in front of the spare but I didn't go there due to not wanting to crawl under my unit every time to tighten the t-bolts. There out for travel and so that I don't forget to loosen before lowering. I don't use them while in storage for short periods.

Also your underbelly is sealed and you will need to cut some of it off to mount them. Just not worth the headache IMHO. The other problem you have if the 12 has the same make electric jacks as mine is that the support arms hit the JT's when they go up which would leave your legs down or damaged when retreiving.

The square stock and U bolts cost me about $40.00 from a local welding supply, cut to my desired length. You can drill the holes before you mount them which also makes the install that much easier. They are 12" long each and the u-bolts are 5".

FYI, make sure you open up your kit and check the length of the eye bolts supplied in the kit well before your install date. You might need to call them so that you have the correct size for installing both the front jack legs and rear electric jacks. You don't want to wait for the parts, it took 10 days to get mine. You should have the wide 58" plus kit.

A/C Mods

Stancsr

I have some questions about your A/C mods for your second unit. I have a 2010 365 BHS and I need to make the mod on the second A/C for my camper.
Where is the cord for the second A/C unit located in the basement? Did you connect the 20 amp plug to the existing cord going to the fuse box? Let's start with this questions. The last question, does it work well?

Funny... we use that draw for exactly this stuff too. It's a nice deep drawer and holds everything.

So I am in process of "summerizing" and getting to the long list of Mods. First one on the list since I had the tank kicking around for a month now was the expansion tank. I picked this 2gal diaphram well tank up in Lowes for $35.00 and my line will run full open for 25 seconds before the pump kicks on. Easy 1 hr mod for $50.00.

I am going to add a 2" piece of rigid foam under the pump to silence it more. With it not screwed to the floor there is a significant decrease in noise while on.

I also added a hose hookup for the door side of the unit which you can see the tee installed after the tank and running to the other side. Great thing to have when you need a hose on the door side.
