Accessories for new RV

Good morning, I am new to the RV world, as my wife and I just purchased our first RV, 2018 Thor Four Winds 31Y. We have been remodeling to our taste until we go on our first trip. I hav3 been looking for different things to do to it and have difficulty finding certain parts, if they are even made. The OEM A/C vents are black and I would like to replace them with the ones that have the chrome ring, but I canít find the right size, only for the F series vehicles which are to large. Also any suggestions on how to utilize the storage/coin bin on dash that really serves no purpose. Thank you for any assistance.

I can't help you with a coin holder. What do you think might fit there that you would like to be there?

If you type
'Mod'
Into the search engine
You'll have plenty of inspiration for practical and trip enhancing mods.

Not sure what I would want, but I have been looking into so many digital type devices. I like useful tech items, vehicle monitoring , communications, I donít know, but I do know that is just wasted space for me. Thanks for your input.

Electrical shunt to monitor batteries and associated monitor.
Easy install and completely worthwhile.

A used phone with iExit app always running.
Same used phone as a hotspot.


Valentine radar detector with the remote mounted there.

A small cat (some people allow their animal to ride on the dash)

My Alexa echo rides in a similar space and monitors my home cameras and all other echo things on a 10inch screen(five inch now, spousal unit swapped me out for her kitchen unit).

Candy dispenser

Tums dispenser(I don't know your marital bliss levels)

My space that is almost exactly like yours now has two of the below 12v and super fast usb c modules in it(OK. Mine aren't super fast but the newer units are)

I'll add a good space for a TMPS display if you don't have one built in,

And look for vent rings for a Ford E450 Van, but they probably don't exist.

It does not have one, and that’s a great idea. I will look to see which one might fill the space without trying to find someone to make a cover plate.

Thank you

I put an indoor/outdoor thermometer in that space. One probe is next to the display and the second is in the void space near the door hinges (which may throw off the temp if the sun is shining on that side of the RV).

Since you're looking for a bit of bling(the unneeded chrome), I'll suggest an alternative where you can control what's available.
https://www.amazon.com/s?k=hydrograp...sample-20_1_12

And/or

https://www.amazon.com/s?k=car+wrap&...f=nb_sb_noss_1

I've experimented with both and have lost interest in both.
There was a time I was buying king ranch seats for our 24.1
I ordered the appropriate dip and wrap to transform the entire cab of our 24.1.

Both of these are preteen summer camp art project type skills to achieve acceptable results.

Coin holder mod

Hello. Can’t see much detail from your photo, but if it is similar to a Ford there is a 3D printed mod available on Etsy that works on the last 20 years of their products which lets you use it as a phone mount. Just put “F150 coin holder“ in the ETSY search bar.
