I have a long list of probable modifications I want to do to our Scamp
13 footer. They include lots of custom woodwork for storage and utility. There will also be lots of tweaks to the systems. Here is a list of initial ideas, most will happen.
Change all lighting
Add extra brake and clearance lights
to rear of trailer.
Consider moving porch light
away from entry door to keep bugs out. I should have asked Scamp
to not install it.
Add charge wizard to converter.
Cut off tongue jack handle and weld on a nut to allow use of my electric drill.
Add a panel display to show battery's voltage.
Add a main battery
Add removable 12 gauge shore power cable. (I intend no AC)
Build a box to contain propane
, chocks, etc.
Add a deadbolt to the entry door and install pins on hinge side to defeat hinge removers.
Replace Scamp's porus foam door seal with a water tight version. (bad form Scamp)
Mod water pump with silencer kit, 2 gallon expansion tank and anti freeze filler hose.
Add low profile Camco cover to fantastic fan and buy resistor from Fantastic to allow lower current draw, quieter operation and 6 speeds.
Insulate floor from underneath with foam. Consider insulating exposed plumbing while I am under there.
Consider adding stabilizer jacks powered by an electric drill.
Add fence post stinky slinky storage under trailer if I can find clearance. I asked Scamp
not to install their storage over propane
Investigate the possibility/cost of lifting the trailer 2 inches.
Add a 100 watt solar panel
Add storage cabinet under dinette. With the 54 inch bed and benches it looks like 12 inches could be use for bedding storage against rear wall.
Think about replacing Scamp's table design with a more flexible arrangement.
Screen all outside vents, frig, water heater, furnace
Consider adding fan to outside frig vents for circulation if necessary. We don't camp in hot weather very often.
Permanently mount my macerator to allow black and grey tank draining if I can find clearance underneath.
Add Oxygenics sprayer in shower.
Add peep hole in bathroom to view tow vehicle when things go bump in the night.
Add EZE gutters on at least the door side. This is also handy when using an EZ up or tarp like "awning". Probably above the rear window too since we like the window open on rainy days.
Add 12 volt powered usb chargers for i devices.
Use furnace's additional duct options to feed heat to bathroom and water tank storage area.
Add small fan in black tank vent to create slight negative pressure to lessen smell when flushing. Perhaps power it from light
Add drain valve to water heater drain plug.
Consider soft pad over door to save my forehead.
Consider adding hose to drain pressure from accumulator tank into freshwater tank when traveling.
Add digital thermostat to furnace
Consider lexan or plastic film storm windows
Add long oak tray under back window to store glasses, phones, flashlights, etc.
Add wheel to tongue jack.
That's my list. Might take a few years. There are always projects for a fellow who likes to tinker.
Please suggest any ideas you find useful.
