We since we collect magnets from our travels, we removed the front panels of the fridge, replaced them with Luan plywood and thin gauge sheet metal to keep the magnets on.

A fake RV utilities pedestal, complete with 50 amp electrical box, water spigot, and a sewer hookup.

Great for when camping at U.S.F.S. campgrounds that don't have any utilities. Seem to get asked a lot about, "When do you folks plan on leaving?", by people that show up later on in the week.

Are these available at CW?
I would like to have utilities when camping in U.S.F.S campgrounds.

I love it! Do you put out your power cord, water supply hose and dump hose to complete the ruse?

Well, ...YEAH, you have to show it as if it is the real deal!

That's what makes it fun.

new steps

Sailun s637 (brand new)
Kodiak disc brakes (installed by previous owners)
All led bulbs in and out
2- 6 volt and 2 12 volt batteries wired together
Level up (installed by previous owners)
All new springs/ wet bolts/u bolts etc.
Entire frame has been sanded/wire brushed/cleaned up and painted with 3 coats of rust remover paint then 3 coats of spray on truck bed liner

Within the last few days, I ripped out the 2 carpeted steps and removed the carpet on the landing in front of the bathroom. The carpet to vinyl transition is now at the bedroom door.

I then constructed a new set of stairs with 3 steps (stained birch plywood). Each step has a rise of 6" instead of 8" and each step has a run of 9" instead of 12". Each step is hinged and flips open for extra storage and snaps back into place like the cabinet doors. This mod provides access to the bathroom without getting any carpet dirty.

I also removed the carpet in between the kitchen island and the dinette back to where the cabinets and counter ends. There was already vinyl under it from the factory.

As you can tell I like to mess with stuff. LOL

Trimetric 2020. With this I know exactly at what voltage my batteries are being charged at by my solar system. How many amps are going in, how many amps being drawn and how many amps are remaining in my battery bank.
Of all my mods and additions this is by far the best.

-Integrated TPMS for my 2017 Ford Super Duty. Plugs into the truck and
shows the trailer tire pressure in the dash instrument cluster.
-Solar
-Third air conditioner
-AND MY FAVORITE - Green Mountain Davy Crockett Pellet Grill/smoker
mounted onto a hitch insert and inserted into the rear hitch on the trailer (I
replaced the stock hitch receiver with a custom 2" receiver to hold the grill
and a bicycle rack).

Hey Forsch. I noticed your mod about the hitch receiver on same model we just purchased. I want to convert to a 2" as well for bike rack and luggage rack. Could you explain how you did it or have any pictures? I was thinking about taking the existing to a welder for a template but making it a little more beefy. Thanks for any information.
BTW. I was born in Riverside and my Mom moved us to Rialto. Stayed there until the 8th grade before we were transferred (AF). Of course this was in late 50's!

Harbor Freight has an adapter for $13. I use one for my bike rack.

"IS" is not a Montana option or add on. It's aftermarket replacement for the stock suspension. Many FTers swear by it.

Hey Overlord, I wonder what kinda looks you would get if you didn't run your power cord/water hose etc and said " I just love boondocking"
