Nice mods.

If your stove is noisy, check the little rubber grommets around the corner posts of the grill. There should be one of them on each corner, if one is missing, it will add to the noise.

12: Other radio mods.

The audio for the backup camera was only connected to the right channel. I added a RCA spliter and patched it into both the left and right input.

The DVD would not play on the stereo. I found that the connection had to be made to an emergency brake switch. Since my RV does not have this switch, just connecting it to ground lets the player work all of the time.

To play the TV through the stereo, I got a long patch cord and connect it from the TV audio out to the 3.5 stereo input plug on the front. It sounds much better than the speakers on the TV.

Nice mods. On our prior Chevy B+, I too had to add a switch for the radio. Thankfully Forest River took care of that on our Sunseeker.


Currently RV-less but not done yet.

13: There is a lack of storage for silverware in this RV model. It does not have a dedicated drawer. It does have a oven that we never use, so we purchased a silverware organizer that fits perfectly in the oven. Problem solved.

15: My Walmart bike rack did not fit in the receiver because it hit the bumper. I moved the bumper in about 1 inch by adjusting the 6 big bolts on the frame.

16: Purchased a privacy cover for the front window. This allows us to utilize the front swivel seat and still have privacy.Found on Amazon: Chevy GMC Class C RV 2001 - 2011 White Windshield & Side Windows Privacy Cover

Here is something that helps a lot on the bike rack.
I have tried almost every Anti Rattle device on the market, most have been no good or so complicated and cumbersome that they are useless. If the hitch is not tight in the receiver that added movement only amplifies that bounce.

Until I found the one at Hitch Rider. This will keep everything tight.

Their Hitch Vice is the best and easiest one I have come across and it really works.
