View Full Version : MPG 181 Mods

I've added 2 windows (one to the door and one at the rear drivers side), an 80 watt flexible solar panel (it's self adhesive, sort of like a 9' bandaid), a 2nd marine battery and replaced all the bulbs with LED's on my 181. The thing ROCKS! (though sometimes it also sways :-( Don't travel with a full water tank anymore to cut weight a bit). The additional windows make it brighter and airier and were easy to install. The solar panel keeps my batteries fully charged. I haven't plugged it in to shore power all winter and the batteries are still at 100% (except for when the solar panel was snow covered for 10 days). I also removed the microwave and use the space for storage using marine netting and hooks to seal the opening. I've already posted photos on another thread but I'll re-post if anyone wants.

Thanks Danemayer. Must have posted before my coffee. Here's the link to the windows thread

Rather than repost, why don't you edit your post to include a link to the other thread.
