Here is our latest modification...a new third brake light. We bought the light thinking that we might install it ourselves but decided to have a local RV shop do it. They spliced new wires from near the street side brake light, and the technician was able to fish the wires up through the column next to the small dinette, through the upper cabinets into a small hole drilled through the hull. He had to install a diode (I think that's what he called it) to prevent the current from shorting since the light is a three-wire unit. It lights when the taillights are on, and brightens for braking and for turn signals. We think it should make our travels a bit safer.

Boy, I really like that. Hey Tammie can you tell me where you got your spare tire cover?

Hi Pat,

The cover came from Camping World or Amazon, probably Camco brand.
It comes in white and off-white, and I think white was our best match.

Looking forward to some warmer weather, how about you?

Tammie, I am missing taking my little trailer with me but I can't complain about the weather. We are having a wonderful Michigan winter. Thanks for the info, I need to get one this year and a mattress topper. I promised myself I wouldn't sleep on those hard cushions another year. I now want to get those lights done like you have, that is really nice. Stay warm, it will be spring before we know it…

The Parkliner sewer drain is rather low to the ground. Has anyone found a particular portable tank that works well?

We've added a glass tile backsplash, using a bit of aluminum trim to finish the edge near the door, and swapped out the kitchen faucet for one with a little more height. It's an American Standard Colony bar sink (bar sinks don't have the pop-up drain assembly) with the same span to fit the existing drilled holes in the countertop.
To maximize counter space, we covered the cooktop with a 15"x 20" bamboo serving tray, topped with a cutting board the same size. We countersunk small magnets in the back of the cutting board, which stick to metal squares glued to the bottom of the tray. They stay together, but can still be used separately.
The curtains are new, too. I liked the original ParkLiner curtains with their velcro-tabbed tiebacks, and using them as a pattern, made new ones out of Sunbrella, like the originals. The difference is in how easily the new ones glide across the rod. Instead of a rod pocket which is difficult to scrunch up enough to move aside, the new curtains are hung on the rod by hidden loop tabs on the back, spaced about 5 inches apart. You could probably add those tabs to the original curtains- I made new ones just for a different color. Does that make me a glamper?
Hi Tammie - I just got my Parkliner at the end of January 2017 and came across your awesome upgrades. I want to change the sink faucet to the bar sink. How did you get the old faucet out? Did you have to pull the sink out to get to it?

Thanks - Sandy

Hi Sandy,

Thanks for the kind words, and congratulations on your new ParkLiner! Sorry it took me so long to reply- we were camping 10 hours away from home, and for some reason, could read but not post a reply.
Yes, you'll have to pull out the sink to access the faucet fittings. There are 8-10 clips under the sink, held in place with wing nuts. It's a little hard to get your arm in there through the little door under the sink, but remove the clips and loosen the band clamp around the drain. Now you can remove the sink and the old faucet. Remember to use plumbers putty to reseal the sink, and under the new faucet.
The height of our faucet is great, but the reach is a little short so we attached a swivel aerator to better direct the water. You may find a longer one that comes closer to the middle of the sink.
Even though it took some tricky contortions, the end result was well worth it.
Happy camping!
Tammie

Hi Darrell,

We got the springs at Lowes in the hardware department. Check out post #19 here for the details of our DIY spring struts. They held the doors up, but only if we were careful not to bump them.

So, we've since replaced all of them with:
JR Products 70545 Metal Cabinet Door Struts from Amazon
(sorry I couldn't get the link to work) and they've been a great improvement.

Hope this is helpful,

Tammie
