Must Haves for 2016 29.5 BHDS

This weekend was our first trip out. While hanging around the camper, I noticed somethings that would be helpful to us.

1. Couch - Needs Cup holders - I ordered these for this fix. http://smile.amazon.com/American-Tec...ilpage_o00_s00

2. Outside Kitchen
A. Fridge needs bars to assist in holding my beer in. I ordered these.
B. There is absolutley no power at the outside kitchen. I'll have to run some power from the plug for the fridge. Where will I put my blender?

3. Drawers need dividers - I bought more these. http://smile.amazon.com/Prepworks-Pr...ilpage_o00_s00

4. Screen door
A. Door handle is awkward to pull shut. I ordered this - Amazon.com: Camco 42183 Screen Door Cross Bar (Black): Automotive
B. Dogs may scratch at screen - http://smile.amazon.com/Camco-43981-...ilpage_o00_s01

5. Stock propane hose for outside kitchen is too short to use quick connect on converted weber Q - Amazon.com: Camco 57282 10' Propane Quick-Connect Hose: Automotive

I also ordered some plastic shelve standards similar to the ones in the outside kitchen to put shelves in the rear wardrobe, and the front wardrobe. I'll pick up some wooden shelves at HD.

Thats it for now. I'll post pics once I get the parts installed.

One of the Must-Haves for us was a better kitchen faucet, which I finally replaced with one that has a pull-out sprayer.

Scott, I also noticed that while using the outdoor kitchen, I couldn't really hear the Red Sox game. Since I don't want to Blast the volume and bug any neighbors, I'm adding these.

I don't 'really' need High Definition sound, just want to be able to hear it (music or the game) while cooking outside. Plus it will be nice if the campsite fire pit is in the near as well.

I also have a few 'other ideas' I'm working on. Stay-tuned.

Dave,

My trailer already came with these exact speakers. Your new 29.5 doesn't have outside speakers? Sorry, but I'm a bit confused.

Yes, mine has them as well. But they are mounted on either side of the main door. If you are at the rear kitchen cooking, you can't really hear them. So I will be adding 2 more near the outside kitchen. So I'll end-up with 4 outside speakers!

Ok, thanks! That makes more sense to me now! Not a bad idea for us to do as well. But, we were thinking of upgrading the speakers to some nice coaxials.

I looked at the speakers on the unit. Easy enough to move them, but it will leave mounting holes. It makes no sense on why they are up front...let me know how it works out with the new ones. The stock speakers are horrible.
