After unfortunate experiences with a battery when dry camping, we added a digital volt meter connected directly to the battery. I bought it on Ebay and fitted it into the panel under the closet next to the genny control. I had to move that over a little.

I found that the means of retaining the ladder a nuisance so I replaced the pins with Pip Pins. These are spring loaded and retained by small balls. You just press the top which releases the balls and you pull it out. It is retained by a wire lanyard and is available from race car suppliers. I also found a step ladder at Home Depot that fits exactly behind the ladder, resting on the lower supports and held against the back of the PC ladder with a bungee cord.

The bathroom was missing towel hangers, TP dispenser and a place for a tissue box; we added them.

Picture 3 TP holder - plastic pipe that slides into the vanity to reload, and fits into a recess in the shower wall.

We felt that two hanging closets were unneccessary so we added shelves to the smaller unit,one each for underwear, tee shirts etc.  The bottom shelf is then available for general storage. The big closet was fine until the rack pulled out of the roof under the weight of too many heavy coats. I then added a shelf with the shelf support carrying a more substantial coat hanger rod and also a system for retaining the table properly.

We have added some shelves for cups and things above the door and at the foot of the bed.

This was the largest project; the idea came from Ken Humphries rig. The locker is located between the driver's seat and the slide out. It was made with solid maple ends with the front and back covered with maple plywood. Once again we utilized a door from Phoenix, cut down a little. The top is removable and includes some decorative walnut; the box is chamfered on the front to accommodate taller drivers or a reclining drivers seat. The box bolts to the floor and the surround for the slide out. It is useful for storing larger items like pots and pans and the space behind it is handy for walking sticks, umbrellas, baseball bats, and the windshield sun shade.

Our PC has maple cabinets, so it is easy to match with lumber from Home Depot. We added a DVD player , which was not installed on earlier models, in the left front unit and boxed it in so that we could store light stuff above it. We added a new cabinet between it and the slide out, utilizing a matching door that Phoenix supplied. It has a shelf in the center and we use it to store durable food stuff.

I cannot emphasize enough how helpful Phoenix are if you need odd parts and replacements for broken stuff. They sold us doors and even provided the bulb seal between the new cabinet and the ceiling. We have purchased a replacement shower sliding door, screen door and ladder.

Pictures 2 and 3 shows the new cabinet. I see the latest models have added a big cabinet here, but I think mine looks more integrated - complicated to make fit nicely though.

Bill and Carol Rogers, Newbury Park, CA. We have had a 2350 PC since '04 and are big fans. Wherever we go it generates a lot of interest. We have done extensive mods with cabinets, shelves etc. which makes it even more usable for us. Newby on this forum but it should be interesting and helpful.
