I donít see the AIMs Inverter upgrade.
Having an integrated Inverter is my favorite upgrade.
Search to Forum for that, itís a $200 install that you will love

Ok, great. Its hard to tell exactly what you did. Did you purchase mudflaps and screw them in place? Looks like two per a wheel well.....1 before and 1 after each wheel?

If so....Which mud flaps did you purchase? Any close up pictures of how you attached the front liners?

Great post. Two other things you might want to consider.
1. Clean Dump waste system. I have installed them in 3 RVs and it is the one mod I most appreciate. Much quicker, easier and cleaner.
2. Check your converter/charger and make sure it is really working as it should. It is not Thorís best quality item (to be kind) and they often do not go into either boost or maintenance mode - or both. It can ruin your batteries in a short period of time.

I would love to see pics of your countertop mod and how you did it. Looks like a great upgrade.

How are you handling the cooktop?
The original unit in your coach sits above the countertop, I donít see a cut out for it

Counter Top

I lowered the range that came installed, the counter is removable over the range and sink. I also lowered the sink that came with and installed below the counter.

Great countertops.

I thought about lowing my stove as well to make it flush with the counter tops. How did you lower your stove and sink?

Stove / Sink

The sink fit pretty well just moved over a bit,, the stove was a little more of a project.. had to build all new mount.

So you were able to use some scraps of wood and mount lower (For the stove)?

Did you used a diff sink that can be mounted "under" the counter top that way you can use a sink cover that is flush with counter top??

These are two long term mods that I would love for my RV and you are the first one that I have seen that has thier Axis moded this way.

Any more DETAILED info would be appricated. Perhaps you can do some writeup's on your mods with more details and pictures?

Would love to hear about all your mods on more details. What did you use to make your inner fender liners?

What sink did you use?

Pictures of Sink and stove close up with covers off?
