Wow !!! Quite a list of enhancements

Pics or it didn't happen

Would appreciate write-ups/pics of what you did...

Was the awning switch covers to protect them from being accidently turned on and where /what did you get?

I just used weatherproof switch cover from Menards. Trying to list all mods is too time consuming since I,m on the iPad. Maybe when I,m on the laptop.

johnboytoo, plastic outlet covers from Home Depot to keep switches from being hit by anything in basement. Got idea from earlier post in forum-it has pictures, don't remember title of post. Most of our changes are due to other members posts that we have read prior to us purchasing our RW. Just thought we would share so other newbies could gain knowledge as we have on how to improve an already very nice RV. Thanks to all of you who have shared in the learning curve of RedWood.

Thanks ! keep the pics and diy's coming, getting closer to our delivery and anxious to plan the mods

but actually have two of the 'pipes' on the 'old' 2012 5th wheel !
It holds the extra sewer hose that doesn't fit in the boom and the other holds misc 'long' things... Will probably movee them over but the white ones would be SO mismatched the wife may balk !

for those of us that are newbies to the RW line,
these mods are great and pics ARE worth 1000 words !!!
like for the:
Rubber bumper on shower door ?
bracket for bottom of table so it can be removed?
pulled out metal table brace and made it removable with net fasteners ?
built a hidden storage area under the stairs (don't hide from us !)
replaced sewer boom? why ?
added glass shelves on either side of bed?
