Lee,

All great and functional MODS! I have yet to add the frig fan, or quiet down my pump........., maybe this year.

I wish I could keep my pass through storage area as clean as yours

Bob

Bob, that mod was done two years ago. Believe me, it aint that clean now!

I got the pump quieting mod idea from your buddy Les. Before it was mounted to the wall, and was VERY LOUD! You could hear it several campsites away, not to mention when someone used water for the head at 2 am and you are laying in the bed!

Yes that is one drawback to the universal 751 keys and having a front pass through storage with the bed over it. If you are in the storage door, you are in the trailer! But I suppose anyone that determined to get in will do it anyway. These things are not exactly Fort Knox.

Agreed but it's like leaving a laptop sitting on the front seat of your car. Why make it easy, eh?

I guess if we just lay on the bed all the time they can`t get in. At least not if I`m on it! I`ve seen where folks have changed out the locks, probably not a big expense.

The water pump silencing is the one that has me excited. Not difficult but likely high gain.

I also love the hooks in the front compartment. Yet another DOH - why didn't I think of that.

Both likely done before first camp this year in April...

I`ll try to post the crab sign pics.

Where you have an Eagle, your front pass through storage area may already be finished off, unlike the Jayflights which are not finished on the partition.

Unfortunately not. Here's a pic of Lady Ann's pass through. And yes, it's my list that grew
