Cool mods GravelRider. did you have to install the counter extension low to clear the window shade?


Yes, if it were flush, I would have to open the shade to use it. Also it tucks under the counter for stability.

I installed another 12 volt plug by our sink where we usually set our TV at night to watch in bed. No more long 12 V extension cord.

I have to raise my tongue jack all the way up to install my distribution bars. If I go all the way, the gears grind. So I marked the shaft with spray paint to warn me when I’m at the top.

Also spray painted to front of the hitch coupler silver for better resolution on back up camera.

More mods to come

Over the last few days I did a few things on my 2021 Grey Wolf 22 MKSE

1. I fixed my overflow siphon issue (when my freshwater tank was full, it would end up at about 1/3 full by the time I got to my campsite)


Mine looks to have the same pipe (and I have the same problem.)

What size valve is that? Where did you pick it up?

I'm sorry, I can't remember the size of the valve. What I did was cut off about an inch off the bottom of the tube and bring it into Lowes and find the correct size.

Installed a back up camera. I know its been done and discussed here before. I first bought an inexpensive license plate camera and wired it to the running lights. I then plugged in a 2.4G wireless transmitter. I put the receiver in the TV and connected it to a rear view mirror monitor that clips to the factory mirror. But the reception was horrible. I got a 5.8G transmitter and receiver instead—same result. So I went the expensive route.

The picture is a amazing. No static, delays or interference. I mounted the camera to the top rear of the TT.

I replaced the center light with the camera. Wired it to the marker lights. The monitor is in the truck mounted to the windshield. It synched up right away. I use it while we’re traveling to keep an eye on traffic behind me. It’s great for backing up. I didn’t even need a spotter.

I picked up this recently.

Keeps the chains and the plug off the ground and neatly organized.

Good looking camera installation but illegal. You will probably never be stopped. Look at this.

??. Good to know. That explains why Furion makes one with integrated clearance lights.

I did not realize that yours has an integrated clearance light. I'm glad it is that way. I previously had an illegal wireless setup but when I changed to a wired camera I changed back to a center light.
