A few 29.5bhds mods

With having kids and a large dog my DW wanted to protect the cushions in the camper so she busted out her awesome sewing abilities and made some pretty cool covers for the dinette cushions as well as for the couch. She also felt we need some shelving in the wardrobes because it would give us more room than hanging the clothes up so I had to put some shelves in the wardrobes, but they are removable and adjustable so hopefully will work.

Love the shelves. Where you mounted the back support rails, is there blocking behind the walls? I'll have to so my DW this idea. I'm sure she'll want it done as well.
Thanks for adding Another thing to my 'List'. ;-)

Sweet job!
We have the 29.5 as well and have gotten rid of the hangers in the large master and bunk closet and installed shelves (kept the hanger in both "the beside the master bed" ones).

Latest mod was installing a dimmer for the awning LED lights. I was getting tired of the airplanes circling above thinking it was a landing strip.

I will post some of my other mods sometime in the next month or so.

happy travels!

OK, this sounds interesting. Details please!

I wasn't able to find any studs unfortunately, I may just missed them but I had to put the rails and stuff if certain spots for the shelving to work. But If you use the drywall anchors it should hold it fine, I was able to pull down on them pretty hard without them moving. The back wardrobe was kind of a pain to reach because it is so deep and has the center post between the doors. I am taking the camper out this weekend so I will see how the shelves do with the bouncing around.

Nice job. My DW wants shelfs too. it Would be great if you could list the parts you used for the shelving and where you got it. I've been thinking about getting the adjustable shelf standards like in the outside kitchen shelf's, where they are spring loaded for the shelfs

That black shelving looks terrific and really makes the best sense for ventilation. Those seat covers are just the ticket for the active family and I see a new business venture in your future.

Inline Dimmer (with remote) for LED Lights on 29.5 BHDS

RE: Dimmer on 29.5 BHDS
I have to admit, I was very leery about ordering and doing this at first but this was one of the easiest mods so far on my Jayco 29.5.

I ordered the "inline dimmer and remote" seen in the pics from Amazon similar to this one shown here (not sure if this is where i got it!?): Robot Check
I am pretty sure it came from China as it took 4-5 week to receive it.

Installed it on the wires just under the plastic cover plate under the awning arms going up the side wall, outside, of 5th Wheel (see pics). Sealed up the wires and inline with some caulk, replaced the plate and Bob is now your uncle! (PS- Make sure if you do this mod to install the wires in the right directions marked on the "inline")

Note: This might not be the best solution for a dimmer as you still need the remote to dim the lights but it remembers the last setting you used and was by far the easiest (and probably cheapest) that i have seen!

Steve

PS - Apologies for hijacking this post but figured since a few have asked

Here is the link to menards where I bought all the stuff for the project. just be sure to use shorter screws so you don't go all the way through the wall
http://www.menards.com/main/storage-...et=Tough+Stuff

The back wardrobe is about 25 inches deep and the deepest shelving I found there was 20 inches so there is about a 4-5 inch gap between end of shelves and the doors when closed. The wardrobe in the master bedroom I believe is 17 inches deep and the shelving was 16 so if fits good. The upright rails I bought one of each and cut them in half, to save a couple dollars. I also only bought one of the hanging track and cut that in half as well.

I was thinking of shelving like the outside kitchen area has as well but we found this and we both liked the darker color or the metal racks.
