I installed new speakers in my 2013 21fbs, they're much better than stock, 100 Watts rms vs the factory 24 Watts max isn't much of a comparison though. I got lucky because I didn't think about checking slide out clearance. But I now know exactly what the maximum hight is. That is a Alpine spr-60 in the picture.
Figure I'll add a couple more recent mods.
My trailer came with a power awning switch but a manual awning so I made a new switch panel. Outside I had a extra marker light and made a step light and installed a 20 inch LED light bar in back.
My first mods were the max air roof vent covers and have been well worth it in the rain as well as the wind. Going to have to tighten my awning soon, last time I listened to bad advise and almost lost a finger, I won't post pictures of that.

The speakers are great can't wait to get a amp, I hear there even better. Right now I can go full volume, 62 on a pioneer, zero distortion but you have to enlarge the opening in the ceiling just a hair. With the light bar I had been looking at switch panels but there to expensive right now so I made the one in the picture and the blue switch in the top left goes to a relay by the water tank then down along a propane line and outside underneath and to the back and up it's grounded to the bathroom vent. By the way I found a way to run wires through the ceiling but I don't know if it only applies to the 21fbs and haven't heard anyone even mentioning this. I'll get some pictures and explain soon.

I needed access to the speaker wires and if you look behind the radio they go straight up into the ceiling and the only way to see is to stick a camera back there. Then on the bathroom side there's nothing helpful and here's where it gets fun. The first picture is the bathroom closet so you can see that you wouldn't ever know this and in the third picture I wanted to show you don't have to take the screws all the way out they make good handles for the panel. Just noticed it's a little blurry. The fourth picture is the piece I cut out behind it. Yes I was nervous here and very thorough. I triple checked for anything I might not want to cut. The next is the final cut by this point you might notice besides celling access I can also go down behind the bathroom counter where the outside shower is or under the TV to the back of converter. And the last you can see from the blade of my tape your not going to fit your arm in it but my fish tape slid easy. I only did all this because of future mods like bathroom speakers possibly a a custom amp rack in the closet. The picture of my radio is the other side so you can see this is completely invisible if you don't know.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170922/e68643ba4f1b38dfac79d0955f66ce7c.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170922/134b284010918cbf4ec23dc4209b9d04.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170922/79ed4ab5dc9ef5252a109d4172986f61.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170922/4233243f954272552c999f9617cb821f.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170922/507274d7022fb1d208a3a46caf996c7c.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170922/cc4cf72ace99e5ff8deab79f69f9aac7.jpg

By the way just thought I'd mention this I don't know if anyone else has this problem but the factory put my control panel in the bathroom exactly perfect where the pantry door turns on the water pump. I got tired of it and a simple quick fix turned the switch around.

I meant to redo my plumbing this summer and put shut off valves on everything because last winter my outside shower developed a leak and I didn't know it until I saw my carpet was wet then I found out the only shut off valve is the main outside. But time hasn't permitted.
