2012 Jay Flight 22FB mods

1. Mounted two 19" 12V HDTV's
2. Mounted DirecTV satellite receiver
3. Added a wall switch for the ceiling lights and porch lite. The wife did not like opening the panel and reaching that high to turn the lights on/off.
4. Added SeeLevel holding tank monitor system.
5. Wall-to-wall carpet (except the bathroom). No kids so it was a safe thing to do.
6. Put carpet (some leftover stuff I had) in all the storage bays.
7. Put bug screens on the water heater access door, furnace air intake/exhaust port and refrigerator access panel.
8. Added plastic caps with small holes to the fresh water overflow hoses to stop spiders and bugs from taking up residence.
9. Added fold up stove cover to increase counter space.
10. Added power strip on the end of the kitchen counter.
11. Added bat wing to the TV antenna.
12. Replaced blank cabinet panels (3) with doors. (I hated reaching around them.)
13. Put press on/off lights in the storage bays.
14. Added water dams to the bath tub so water would not run off on the floor. (Poorly designed tub.)
15. Added a backup camera to the back of the trailer. Now I can see that person that wants to hide in the blind spot.
16. Added power tongue jack. An arm-saver with a weight distribution hitch hookup.
17. Added permanent levels.
18. Replace the propane regulator with an auto-changeover.
19. Replace chintzy bathroom fan with a Create-A-Breeze fan.
20. Install 2 computer fans at the top of the refrigerator to assist in cooling efficiency.
21. Replace mouse hole cord stuffing with separate cord and power inlet.
22. Added Quickie Flush black water tank rinser.
23. Added a 4 drawer chest behind dinette next to the door. 3 drawers that Jayco supplied was just not enough.

Pretty close to the way I want it now.

I installed this high on the back of the trailer so the view cleared the bicycle. The range on these cameras is not good enough to reach the TV. I spliced additional wire in the cable and ran it to the front of the trailer and mounted the transmitter on the bracket that holds the propane tanks. Works fantastic.

That`s a great price on that camera. Any thoughts on how well that would work in back of the truck for backing up to the hitch by yourself?

Thanks,
This mod was as simple as using silicon caulking to support two plastic tabs to force water running on the edge of the tub back into the tub. I am certain my method would not survive kids. It would take very little force to knock them off.

It would work perfectly. However, I use the balls on the telescoping rods to hitch up by myself.

Sorry for the late question, but can you share where you located the extra door fronts, or if you just made them locally?
