X17Z Mods so far

Thought I would throw some pics up of a couple mod I did at the end of last year.

We liked the bunkend fan/lights we had in our popup, mostly the lights however their were no power ports in our X17Z.
I went a slightly different route with this and used plastic surface mount cable runs. I think it came out good, nice thing is the run in the front is usually hidden by the curtain.
The run going down the wall is speaker wire, that project still in the works.

Also added a crossbar handle to the screen door and an opener so you don't have to slide the plastic door to open it from the inside.

I just realized that I installed my door opener backwards. No wonder it wasn't working right.

Looks good. My power outlets for my fan/light combos are installed in the ceiling. Fished the wires from the ceiling lights by the bunkends.

I had thought about fishing the wires from the ceiling lights, but with having to also work the speaker wires down, this just seemed easier.
