SLX 174BH Mods

Got my new TT last October. Over the winter I have been busy collecting parts and ideas for mods and upgrades. Below are pics of my mods to-date. Still a few more ideas I am considering. Please let me know if you have any suggestions!

Added Vortex 2 vent fans. Did not have powered fans standard so I had to steal power from nearby lines.

Bottom bunk curtain. I ordered a factory curtain for a perfect match with the rest of the interior. Also used the glide track system for a perfect match to the rest of the unit.

New stereo. Replaced the factory unit with a double din unit. It has all of the connections you could need and it includes a DVD player. I fished a 14 foot RCA cable through the roof to the TV for a perfect factory installation.

Also installed the 19 inch television. Ran the power and RCA cables into the overhead cabinet and used a short coaxial cable and 90 degree connector to plug into the tv antenna. Again the DVD player is part of the stereo unit.

Was it difficult to install the vent fans?

Fan install was easy. Hardest part was running the wires because I did the have powered vent fans before. The other tricky part is getting the holes for the mount screws and the roof vent gear crank to all allign. Other than that it only took maybe 30 minutes per fan. They made a huge difference in airflow. On high the one fan pulls enough air to make the other start circulating. I also noticed how much air was leaking via the wall mount ac unit. Some pipe insulation and aluminum tape seemed to do the trick.

We just picked up a 174bh yesterday! A tv is a must. I like your set up. What mount did you use? Was there a stud behind it to mount it to? I asked the dealer and they said no, but I've seen a few mounted there. Very clean install!!

It is the smallest and most basic mount made by Ion. You can pick them up at walmart. No pan or tilt features but you can see the screen from every seat/bed in the house. There is a "stud" there, probably a 1x1. The electrical box above the counter is attached to the side of it. You can find it with a stud finder or just use your fingers to push the wall in until you "feel" the stud. The most important points are to get a single stud mount tv bracket, a small/light tv, and use short but stout screws so you don't go through the wall to the outside. I think I even drilled and added 2 extra mounting screws in the bracket.

My Jay Flight SLX 174bh TV mount

Installed with cheap mount on amazon that has an arm. I think it was $10.
I also wired a 15ft. headphone jack in through the cabinets and the ceiling so it can be plugged into the stereo system and listened to either inside or with the outside speakers! My TV is a 24" Vizio smart TV for $100 at Wally World. Great Deal.

Articulating wall mount at Amazon:

Installed a medicine cabinet today to increase the storage for necessities. They should have installed one from the factory... next project is a tv/DVD set up. Has anyone installed a cable hook up?
