I run my 15K on high with no issues. If I turn on too many lights by accident, I'll trip my home breaker. A quick reset is all it takes.

184bh

I appreciate the notes all have offered here. As far as the outlet, I used an extension cord that has three outlets in it. I am using an under the bedside organizer for a charging station, and the extension cord reaches well.
We used command hooks to hang on the door to the bathroom and the wall by the bunks for coats. I am not understanding the mirror in the bathroom. There are not outlets and would not be able to see from the outlet by the sink for my hairdryer. I am going to put up a mirror maybe inside the cabinet.
I added spice clips inside the upper cabinet for my spices and a small shelf to fit dishes and cups inside.
I added pop a plate and napkin under the cupboard from our old camper. In the space to the left of the upper cabinet door I added a paper towel holder. To the left of that around the side we added a plastic bag holder.
This is a downsize camper for us. We are very pleased how it pulls and that I can fit most everything in that we had before. We did have collapsible dish drainer and bowl that would help with cleaning up dishes. I also purchased a drainer and bowls. We are ordering the cover for the stove to add to the counter space too. Can not wait to go out on a trip. Happy traveling everyone.

I've purchased a 2013 184BH, I agree with several of the modifications y'all have discussed. I've got a couple of questions...does anyone know what's behind the dummy panel above the radio? is it just empty space that can become a bit more storage? and, has anyone ever added a window to a TT? I want to add one to the top bunk.
also, how about a bumper mount bike rack?

Congratulations, Nyindal, on the new-to-you trailer and welcome to the JOF.

Can't help with your first two questions, but the last one - "how about a bumper mount bike rack?" - NO, don't do it.
If your trailer rear bumper is the usual thin metal type, it can't take the weight or the bouncing.

I think that this is probably similar to what's in my 195RB. See images below that I took when I had it apart to look at making a kill-switch for it so I can completely shut off the juice to it for when I don't have hook-ups for an extended period:

Updates on my 184BH.

Going on 4 years with my camper. Here are the things I've done.
- put a fan in the bathroom to help pull air out of the top, and remove hot air (and fart air).
- put two vent covers over the vents
- built a pine cutting board to go over the stove
- tv under the cabinet
- memory foam mattresses
- custom sewn fitted sheets for the bunks
- front jacks to match the back
- 2 inch axel flip (lift)
-porta bote mount on the underneath side of the frame to carry my boat
http://youtu.be/TnUKBWaFo6U
- led lights
- extra 110 outlet underneath the bunks
- Velcro'd battery operated fans to ceiling in the bunks (great mod)
- put a rod near front wall of camper across the dinette to make it easier to fold up the bed
- changes plane axel grease to lithium grease
- strengthened the back bumper and installed a hitch to carry a bike rack
- installed a cork board and key chain holder near front door.

That's all I've got! Getting ready for camping season!!!

Looks like your tow vehicle is a jeep, I was wonder how the jeep handle long trips.

I have a 2015 Jeep unlimited and just purchased 174RB Baja. I have gone on one very short trip, but was planning on going for Idaho to Moab this spring.

I was wonder how you jeep did in the mountains and what the MPG where.

Thanks.

xkuzme1, how did you reinforce the bumper for the hitch & what did you use? how many bikes do you carry on the rack?
also, can you show a picture of the rod(where and how it's mounted) in the dinette?

thanks
