Is the pedestal just screwed down or are they bolts on blind nuts?

We find the miniblinds on our 2016 22 to be the best of the options we've seen or used. At least some of the regular miniblinds have a bottom attachment option which is often used on door applications.

Once the new location for the pedestal was determined, I just drilled new holes and used the same large screws that came with the pedestal.

Thanks for all of the ideas...

I thought about modifying the bed for easier access to storage, but instead increased difficulty of accessing storage! I increased the size of the platform to the bulk-wall for support and installed a full size queen memory foam mattress.

Intrigued by moving the table back, but we use the back of the dinette for storage commonly. Hmmm....

3. While trying to watch TV in bed with the AC on(we live in Florida), we couldn't see the TV because of the plastic bulkhead and privacy curtain or hear because of the AC (loud). Both were removed and a second TV w/sound bar was added over the bed. With the curtain and bulkhead gone, the trailer seems much roomier. The galley bulkhead was replaced with a stronger version to mount the TV.
How did you route the wires for the television? Did you go up and over the kitchen overhead cabinets? Pictures would be great!

Our Latest Modification - A Mirror on the Interior of the Bathroom Door

This is a really easy and inexpensive modification. The goal was to make the bathroom area appear larger ... it also helps to have a large mirror to ensure one looks dressed ok.

It was a challenge to capture the full length mirror in one photo so I had to take a few photos to capture the intent.

Thank you for your kind feedback Lisa. Tomorrow more modifications to come ... as a result of our Thanksgiving camping trip this weekend.

I used Liquid Nails, then I used a black felt tip marker to color over the Liquid Nails. I think you would really be pleased with the positive impact of moving that table up against the base of the dinette.

How did you patch the old holes from the table stand?
My husband just started taking our table apart and found a broken sliding piece, also multiple drill holes...looks like a botched job. I do not recommend starting this project while camping...the cramped walk through is frustrating enough under normal conditions!
Kitchen sink...I only use mine to store fruit , I have a plastic bowl that fits perfectly.i use the bathroom sink instead.

2nd TV Cable & Power Routing (22' Sport)

NWGetaways,

Sorry for the delay in replying, our Sport was getting a new A/C courtesy of Dometic, but that's another story.

COAX

The new coax was fished straight down from the amplifier,(connect to the spare outlet on the back of the amp), to a new hole drilled in the upper refer access port (picture 1), than around the louvered access door jam through another new hole (picture2). That gets you access to under the galley counter and than to the new coax outlet, next to the bed. I didn't worry about sealing the new holes... its a louvered cover.

POWER

Pull the microwave, you will see that it is served by a single 120v outlet. That was changed out to a new duplex outlet. I made a pigtail using 12/2 cu w/ground with a plug on one end and the other end fished to the new duplex remodel box. Generally the same route the coax took.

I patched the old holes using Liquid Nails. Then after the Liquid Nails dried I simply used a black felt tip marker to blend it with the flooring.
