Alterations-Modifications?
 
Are any of you guys doing modifications or alterations to your rigs to make them fit your lifestyle?

:D Sure are. Solar panels. Extra batteries. Satellite TV. Invertor. :wink:

Modification
 
I built a sewage drain pipe strorage container. The one on my BTC was too small and would not fit a longer drain hose. So I went to a landscaping place where they sell stones and pipes for irrigation. I bought a PVC pipe with pre-drilled holes for drainage or irrigation. I also purchased a solid screw cap (and drilled drainage holes in the bottom) for the bottom end and a colar & screw in for the top. All I have to do is unscrew and insert the longer hose and the connectors for the hose. I installed it at an angle to the ladder over the rear bumper with pipe clamps and 2 pieces of wood with half moon cut outs to fit the hose holder.
I will try to insert a picture here if possible.

The above Sewerage pipe storage tube may be used for any RV as long as it has a ladder. But, I am sure this can be again modified to suit other types of installation.

gas cap door
 
Gonna rig up a door to guard my gas cap from vandelism. It didn't come
with a locking door or cap and filler design is formed to install a locking door easily with a little effort. Steve

I have a locking door over my gas fill. But the door is so flexible that it can be pryed open with anything even just a key. Wouldn't it be easier if you just got a locking cap instead. I was thinking of getting a locking cap since the door is really not that secure.

We added a Wilson Truckers Antenna for our cell phone. We were boon docking off of 97 in Oregon and went from no bars to five bars. This thing really works

Trucker's antenna
 
Where did you get it? And was it hard to install?
Thank you, Toni

Tonigil,
Probably but my cap is now attached with a plastic lanyard and it would be me to forget to put on locking cap after fillup and lose a 27 dollar cap.

I got it made and altho it doesn't look storebought it will work. I added two
small metal braces to back side of door to prevent flexability. It would take a big prybar to overcome. Nothing is foolproof but it will slow someone down. Steve

Thank you, sounds like it should work out great.
Toni.
