2015 Bullet Supreme 26RBPR mods

We purchased a 2015 Bullet Supreme 26RBPR this past October, just to drive it to storage. Well we did have it for two weeks in the driveway before dropping it off, but didn't had the chance to use it. I was able to do some of the small adjustments, repairs and mods in those two weeks, but I have a busy few weeks of mods to do when we pick it up. My DW and I have been really busy buying everything for the list.

I have learned a lot from others on this and other forums and look forward to learning more from you guys!

My DW is still laughing at me. I told her when we bought this trailer, that is was perfect and that we didn't need to do anything to it!

Here is a list of projects we plan on doing;

Install key hooks by entrance door (done)
Install Oxygenics shower head (done)
Install pin lock on Emergency Windows (done)
Install door stop for bathroom door (done)
Install larger fire extinguisher by entrance door and move smaller one to bedroom (done)
Replace ivory outlets for black ones (done)
Buy power jack head cover (purchased)
Remove ugly warning stickers from range hood (done)
Replace bathroom ivory GFI outlet for black one (purchased)
Install towel racks in bathroom (purchased)

Install LP Tank Gauges (purchased)
Install Level Mate (purchased)
Add support props for under bed storage (purchased)
Add support props to cabinet doors over the couch (purchased)
Install Roller Balls on kitchen slide to protect awning (purchased)
Buy accumulator tank, pump filter, and winterizing kit to water pump (purchased)
Remove attached 30a cord and mouse hole to install twist lock power outlet (purchased)
Carpet entry steps (purchased)
Rotate power jack head 90 degrees for tailgate clearance
Install bathroom, kitchen, and bedroom vent covers (purchased)
Install shelf liners to keep things from rolling around (purchased)
Install LED closet lighting (purchased)
Check AC ductwork to see if the runs go beyond vents (repair if needed)
Install Back Up/Observation camera system (purchased)
Install robe hooks at bedroom entrance (purchased)
Install longer battery positive cable (cover doesn’t close properly)
Install shelves in both bedroom closets
Replace AC ceiling vents with adjustable ones
Install glides for pull-out trash can
Install battery disconnect switch
Add second battery
Install reading lights above sofa in slide-out

Wow. Just wow. I hope you take some time to get her out and use her for a few nights. Enjoy your new trailer. It sounds like you are!

I didn't see what I would recommend as the 2 most important items to add to your list, #1 surge protector/EMS either hard wired or portable & #2 a real water pressure regulator (not the "restrictor" they may have given you when you purchased the rv) preferably with a gauge to attach to the spigot not the rv.
IMHO #1 should be mandatory for ALL rvs, too many electronic gizmos in these rvs today to not use one, it's cheap insurance.
Both of these should be used EVERY time you hook up, even if hooked at your home, not just when you think you'll need them.
This is from my/our experiences in last 10 years fulltiming.

I totally agree! We have them from our previous trailer, so they didn't make the list of things to do.

Bug strucken you are! I had the same motivation 2 years ago after buying my Bullet new. After 2 seasons of enjoyment, I'm still trying to find things to mod.

A couple of suggestions:

Take advantage of 3M's Command line of hooks and velcro strips for all your attachment needs. Outside of hollow wall anchors for a TP holder and 2 towel racks in the bathroom, everything else is secured via a Command product.

Secondly, I replaced my AC ceiling vents with these from Amazon. The adjustable louvers do a good job equalizing/balancing temps throughout the 3 rooms in my 35 foot coach. Easy swap out as they just snap in place.

You might want to consider running a LED light strip across your passthrough instead of a single LED light. Very easy install as I just tapped into the existing power supply for the OEM light. Take a look here. It really brightens up the storage area.

Have fun modding and personalizing your coach.

Two of the most important 4 mods (in my opinion) have not been included on your most extensive list. Along with the EMS/surge protector and a quality water pressure regulator, you should consider replacing your "Chinese may pops" for quality tires from Maxxis, Carlisle or Goodyear (Endurance, not Marathon). While you're replacing the tires, I'd urge you to consider a wet bolt kit/heavy duty shackles for your suspension.

It's all good to mod the interior to make it more comfortable and to mod the exterior to make it more convenient, but consider these 4 mods as safety related and essential for reliable, safe towing "for the long haul".....

As a "side note" since your trailer is a 2015, chances are the OEM tires are at or very near their "age limit".

We love Command Strips and use them all the time!

Those are the vents we want to install. I'm glad to hear they are easy to install.

Your passthrough looks great! I do have an LED light fixture already for the install, but I just might go the LED strip route.

Let the mods begin!
