Even better is a remote thermometer so you don't need to open the door to find out! We don't have that yet, but have a similar thermometer to you.

I've done two that spring quickly to mind.

1 was mounting 2 cup holders to the side of the sofa in my 23RB. Anyone siting on the sofa near the wall has a counter to set a drink. The person sitting near the entrance door doesn't.



The 2nd was mounting a double clear plastic pocket on the back of the dinette. I use them to hold the remotes, when we are parked.

We do have trouble finding good places to tie her up when in cramped quarters. In larger spaces, she's often tied to the picnic table, with enough slack that the collar end can be hung on the door safety handle (the one attacked next to the door), for easy access when she's inside.

We did the cable through the wheel of the trailer when we took our puppy. Buddy was a Bullmastiff and weighed in at 125lbs of pure muscle at his peak. A little over a year since we had to put him down. We miss him like no one can believe. As much as he slobbered on everything and everyone he was the best.

Nothing like losing a member of the family to tug on the tear ducts...

I added similar units with a 12v port as well as USB in the bottom of the upper cabinet so the jacks sit above the counter. Also in the sidewall of the basement so I can plug in and charge while outside using a device

What a beautiful looking dog he was! He looks like he was strong enough to pull a trailer right off the chocks if he put his mind to it.

Not my mod, but dog related. I saw a camper last year who attached a cable to each end of his awning roller. Then he attached his dog's leash to the cable. This allowed the dog pretty good range on the campsite, and kept the lead up off the ground so it didn't keep winding around the obstacles. Very smart!

Drink Holder Micro Mod

I didn't add pictures to my earlier "micro mods" post. I'll add them here, but they will probably show up sideways or upside down.

1st is the drinker holders.
