The only 12v outlet that came installed was in the ceiling for the bedroom TV. It was on the same wall plate as the antenna connection and amplifier switch. But I replaced that with a Wingard SensarPro TV Signal Meter right away, so I lost that 12v outlet. But that was over the TV anyways, not a good location to charge cell phones.

One thing I didn't mention was that the new USB outlet is longer than the thickness of the shelf, so I had to mount a junction box inside the cabinet to cover exposed outlet and the wiring. Actually it worked out better that way because I now have easy access to the wiring without having to pull the outlet. In the future, if I feel I need to kill the power drain, I could install a switch on the box itself to kill power to the outlet.

Today I made a stand-off to keep the water from ponding on my slide-out cover. I will glue the leg assemblies together once I finalize the design, but keep the tubing between them just force fit together to keep it portable and storable.

My DW has been commenting about not being able to read the switch labels on our black switch panel. Our panel is located on the side of our entertainment cabinet, just outside the bedroom door, so there is not a ceiling fixture above. I already had an extra LED dimmer switch from another project, so I used that . I ordered a side lighted LED post and installed it directly onto the dimmer switch. Getting pictures of the dark panel is hard because the camera compensates for the darkness but you get the idea of the difference.

Really liking the reading lights. Are they wireless? Can you share a link to them?

Edit: Also I think earlier you were mentioning cupboard props for above the couch - what did you come up with for that?

They are not wireless. I pulled power from the light above the sofa. I drilled a access hole in the cabinet and fished new wires to the sofa light.

I bought these, except the were open box items for around $27.00 each.

I can't find where I bought he props for the cabinet doors . I may have just bought them from my dealer. I'll keep looking for a link to them.

Not really a MOD, but more of a repair. The Lippert Flex Guard for the wiring to my kitchen slide broke at the the frame. When I installed the new Flex Guard, I had to disconnect all the wiring and the LP line going to the slide, so I could feed them through the new looms on the guard. When I reconnected everything, I reorganized and mounted them in a way that I was able to gain more room in the cabinet under our oven for storage.



The wiring before the repair:



The wiring after the repair:
