What/where are you posting your pictures from? PC? Phone? Tablet?

The basic problem with rotated pictures is that phones will store the picture the same way regardless of the orientation. Even though you turned the phone, it is still stored in the .jpg file as if it was vertical. The orientation of when the picture was taken is then encoded in the file's metadata.

Viewer software that know about the orientation metadata will properly display the image, viewers that don't--like the forums here--will always display the image as stored in the file ignoring the orientation data.

If you're using a PC I've found a nice little utility to properly rotate the image and remove the orientation data: FastStone Image viewer (no association other than being a happy user--besides its freeware).

Interesting that you decided to put the flip up counter on the shower side (for use when the door is closed). I think I briefly considered this but figured someone would want to store their stuff on it while showering. Either way the flip up counter is a nice addition to the tiny bathroom in the 24.1 models.

With my iPad, I find that if I rotate the picture one quarter turn in the opposite direction and then take a picture, the iPad will rotate that picture a quarter turn back so it turns out upright. Sometimes cropping the picture will also do it.

Thanks to Tom and Linda at our fall rally in Florida, I found a nice square board at Home Depot that is about the same width and length as the little round table, but square. It is sold as a topper for a tool box.

I removed the mount from the round table and put it on the square board. Just enough more surface to make it work in front of the couch in place of the long table. Also still works between the front seats. Will try to post some pics later.

HI .. this may be redundant...when taking photos with your iPad or iPhone..if you use one screen and want it rotated .. after taking the photo..go into edit ..there is a rotate icon there...it will save it to whatever you rotate it to.

Dash console and doghouse tray added

That little recess in the dash that doesn't quite hold anything got it's mod. They could have made it deeper, there's room, and it could have had a lip if bigger behind the face. I found a disposable tray that's 7" at the top, cut it to 3" maybe, sprayed it with a rubbery coating and screwed it in on the sides. Easy-peezy.

The other add-on is my prototype doghouse tray. I extended the front by 2" and taped down some nonskid. The narrow upper shelf may not work out, we'll see.


Oy, these look crappy on mobile. I guess I need to find a hosting site, instead of here.

Dash consol

This is my dash consol mod. I did one on top and one on motor cover. They help me keep junk contained.

We have a 2014 vegas and have installed the Safe-T and both front and rear Hellwig bars and you will not beilieve the difference it made with the swaying. Next we are going for the airless bags.

I installed Bilstein shocks front and rear. The difference is tremendous, no more porpoising, less sway on turns. The Sump Shock bump stops seem to have tightened up the sway also. The ride is much more secure.

If you are using the stock Ford links on your Hellwig sway bar front, keep a check on them. One of mine broke during the first trip after installation of the Hellwig bar. I replaced both with links from NAPA which are a little stronger and well made.
Agreed, the sway bar, shocks and steering upgrades make it an easy drive.
Happy trails.

Another "mod" I'm now considering: There have been a lot of discussion threads on the larger class-A's here about installing a separate monitor for the camera's (for various reasons) and discussions about RV GPS's, etc.

Late last year I picked up a cheapy Windows PC (this guy) for a similar usage (yeah I've always wanted an "in-dash PC" but this was so inexpensive I figured I would try it).

I can use this for some basic navigation (Windows Maps allows you to download the data so it doesn't need internet access--it does have a built in GPS) and I have the Forscan application installed on it for displaying vehicle data.

My next thought: Hmm if I can pick up some bluetooth TPMS sensors I can probably display the TPMS pressures/temperatures on it (this may require some reverse engineering, however, because the bluetooth TPMS systems work with mobile apps and not Windows...).

In addition I might be able to make my DIY Black Tank monitor work with it as well..

Doc, I have a 2015 24' Axis I want to put recliners in. Do you know the measurements of yours and did they have to do any modifications to the floor?
