Can you post a picture of the area? I don't have so a picture would help the creative juices flow

looking for Mod idea

I have an x23b, but here is my mod. The radio was on the bottom and there was a false panel on top. I moved the radio up to the top spot and made a shelf on the bottom. My best move was adding an electrical outlet in the cubby of the new shelf. We put keys, wallets and remotes in there. Enjoy! Click image for larger version

That would definitely be better than the way it is Bikester plus it might just keep the 3 year old away from the stereo

are you running RCA jacks out of the radio for your DVD?

I think my list of winter mods just grew by one. I like that idea!

Yes, I run the RCA jacks out of the iRV DVD/Radio unit to the TV. Here are a few more pics that I just ran out to the camper to take. I didn't have the TV installed when I took the last set of pics. Sorry if they are grainy...it's dark out . Also, I bought a cheap voltmeter that I leave plugged into the cubby outlet so I can keep an eye on power surges and deficits at all times.

If it looks like the above... Quick ideas... A weather station mounted nicely, cell phone charging location (if you add the electrical outlet) (maybe a panel in the back with USB ports mounted to remove more clutter for charging).
