Is changing something included in your question? If so, the first thing I changed was adding a battery disconnect switch.

Thatís a good one.

First thing I replaced was the rear stabilizer jack. I lifted the front jack to attack the truck before I raised the stabilizers 🤦🏽*♂️

If your talking just randomly what failed first that may not have been fault of my own? Our classic queen bed has a bed lift to raise and place it in position so you can read or watch TV sitting up. The mattress is head and slides down. It actually bent the mattress bar at the foot of the bed that prevents the mattress from sliding completely off.

Airstream redesigned it all and the bar is now only half is tall and doesnít bend with the weight of the mattress sliding.

Two sets of fried batteries followed by a converter that wouldn't fry the batteries. 🥴

I Replaced all the lighting to LED nearly first. That 10 amp draw for the 11 lights in the dining/kitchen/bath area went to 1 amp. The batteries lasted a lot longer.

I'd recommend changing the Goodyear Marathon tires, ASAP!

Same here. I have a 63 Cadillac AM/FM radio in my parts cabinet that I think would be better. At least easier to understand how to set it up and operate.

First thing I replaced and upgraded was the overheat sensor inside the range hood motor.
