This is a removeable DVD stand I made out of conduit and wood for the back bunk in our Jayco 23B. swivels and tilted slightly. I also made one that will slide in the post where our regular TV sits for those "Dry camping" days!!







Weather station.



Clock installed above Dinette.



No need to bring a chunk of wood with.

I ordered them from www.kitchendoordepot.com. They'll make pretty much any size you need and had the best price I could find online.

More details on the Hot Water Heater Drain Hose please....

I don't think my plug nor my nuckles will stand many more removals. I recognize the braided hose but what parts were used to connect to the tank & the valve?

Thx

Here are the cabinet door mods I recently made.

Upper cabinets - open cubby holes



Upper cabinets after with nice cabinet doors



Closed area below front bunk. The only way to access this space was to turn yourself into a contortionist and access it through the outside cargo area.



After - a cabinet door now provides easy access to this area.



This dinette seat has the water heater under it, but there is still a lot of useable space under there



Now a cabinet door allows easy access to that space.




Finally... Someone wanted to see a pic of the cheap ($9) Wal-mart 12V fans I modified to use as bunk fans. All I did was cut off the cigarette lighter plug and soldered on a 1/4" stereo jack plug so that it could plug unto the bunk power port. These oscillate too. In order to use the bunk fan and light together, I tried using a 1/4" splitter, but its been blowing the fuse if I try and use both at the same time, so I think the splitter may be the problem - but I have an idea on that. I'm going to get some 1/4" receiver jacks and wire them on to this set-up and plug the light into that. That would fix the problem if the splitters I have are the culprits.



Where did you find the doors for your upper cabinets?

This weekend I did two mods based on ideas I got in this forum:

I put the drain hose on the hot water heater (I hate the drain plugs and trying to get it in and out).


I made pvc racks to hold all the poles and long skinny things (in the front storage area).

Last, but, not least, the entertainment center.

Other mods seen here are much better looking jobs. I plan on a redo soon. The power and video cables will go through the closet walls when it's done.

Replaced cheap standard Roo speakers with inexpensive Pyle speakers.



Using a Viewsonic converter to utilize an extra computer LCD monitor laying around, I bought a wall mount and have a 15" TV screen to use when it rains or to check news and more importantly, the weather.



And I velcroed the remotes for the TV and audio systems.


The DVD is for movies and the audio for all the TV equipment is through the OEM audio system. I hope to replace it soon.

Very cool indeed!!

Thanks BP. I think about him when I look at that level. I wish I was as good at the woodworking and other things he did. He was amazing with wood.

Here is another pic. Maybe not exactly a mod, but, they replaced the cheap caps that came on the wheels.
The Yin-Yang stickers were my daughter's idea. Love it.

Here is a level made in the 1930s that belonged to my Dad. This tool is part of my earliest memories. He always used it during all his building projects around our house while I was growing up. He was instrumental with helping us get this trailer before he passed away in '05, so, I thought it would be a nice tribute to have a place in the camper to carry it. I sometimes use it when setting up if the site is not very level. It is a beautiful piece.

I moved the fire extinguisher to this location as it was mounted off the side of the oven box next to the door. It was getting hit when coming or going and we wanted to mount a pocket storage for shoes there.



Shoe caddy next to the door. Fire extinguisher was mounted here.

Here are pics of my battery box mod. I used a $35 tool/storage box from Lowes designed for the back of an SUV. It's bolted to the same plate as the original box. I had to move the propane tank mounting back a couple of inches to get it in behind the tongue jack.

When these interstate batts wear out, I'll replace them with the 6 volt variety.




I added the switch in case I need to disconnect the batts. The extra space in the box is used to store the wood for jack stand pads, tie-down bungies, the tongue jack foot, gloves, rope, etc.

Edit for SPELL CHECK :S

These aren't mods to the HTT, but are some projects I made for our last trip to Fort Wilderness at Disney World (we still had the Cub then).

This is a street lamp made from a Christmas tree stand, 3" PVC pipe, some couplers and acrylic globes glued together to look like a Mickey head. I also have a plain round globe that we use most of the time.



These are Mickey head awning lights that I made too. The heads are acrylic globes and the ears are plastic baseballs. We use these most of the time that we camp, but occasionally swap them out for some windsock-type lights that we have also.
