Mods I have Made

I have done a few things to my 2010 240RB Coleman..
The first thing is I took off the front and rear Coleman Decals and replaced them with a name of my choice.
I added an outlet on the Outside RF near the Storage Door.
I added 2 outlets inside, 1 Under the counter and 1 under the fridge.
I replaced the Frosted glass on the door with Clear Polycarbonate, also painted the outside frame with White plastic paint as it was yellow..Put a shade inside so that you can have privacy at night.
Used drawer slides and added a tray in the front storage compartment.
Put a pull switch in the Bathroom ceiling vent so It can be reached but us short guys..
Probably missed a couple, will try to put pics in here...

I like the clear door window, great idea because it's nice to be able to see who's knocking at the door, especially at night. The slide in the storage compartment looks like a useful mod as well.

How did you hook up the pull string on the bathroom vent? Or did you replace the switch for the fan....and if so please explain!!!! I can't even reach the fan switch standing on a stool!

I replaced the switch with a Regular Fan Pull Switch, then added a chain pull....Makes things easier..Not hard to do.

This sounds intriguing. How did you cover up the old decals or did you remove them?

Smile Vinyl Lettering

I removed the Coleman Emblem, I was going to use a Hair Dryer but did it in the Sun, They came off easier than I thought, just pulled at an angle and did it slow.. Here is a link to where I made and ordered the Names...

Sorry about the double entry..
Hey! I just remembered I also added a Slide out Topper..
It was kind of annoying when camping under trees to get leaves and debrie on top of the slide out. Most campers seemed to have these toppers installed, So I bought and installed a Carefree Topper awning and love it..No more problem trying to clean the top..

That's great. Thanks for the info. Now I'll have to wait until it's warmer outside, although today was in the 50s.

Good idea about that topper for your slide-out. But are you going to have to clean it instead????

Added Info

If you get tired of waiting for warmer weather, just use a Hairdryer to heat up the Decal..
No you don't really have to clean the topper, when it retracts everything just rolls off....It was a good addition...

Minus -5 light snow in Kamloops. Almost time to plug in the vehicles.

Yes, I braved the cold, and tackled the decal. Yes, the hair dryer worked great, and yes, the decal came off amazingly well. Yes, I nearly froze my rear off, but my hands were nice and warm.

PS all sorts of lessons learned.
