The 29M is a very popular coach - lotsa info and mods on here about it. For some "light" reading check out the Jerry's Hurricane mods thread:

https://www.thorforums.com/forums/f2...mods-4609.html

The Hurricane and Windsport and sister coaches, same floorplan and construction, different finishes.

My advice, just post them with thick skin because some people are going to rip you apart and some are going to be helpful. Ignore the ripping people and appreciate the helpful ones

Start by going to the "user CP" in the header bar, drop down to "edit signature" then add the rv make, model & year with what chassis it has then drop down to the bottom & "save changes". This will add all the information people need to offer pertinent information about YOUR rv without having ask every time what you have.
Hopefully this suggestion isn't in the "ripping you apart" category????

I have a 2018 Windsport 29m and LOVE IT!!!!! So far I have had ceramic UV window tinting installed, Converted the absorption fridge to a 12v system that is amazing, AquaJet variable speed water pump, curved shower curtain rod, removed the sofa and installed twin electric recliners with massage and heat, new Mattress Insider king size mattress---they are the BEST, Sumo springs in the front, Anti-sway bar, RoadMaster, in the back and Bilstein shocks all around, better foam in the dinette cushions, a Scan Guage, See Level sensors for the Black & Gray tanks and I'm sure I'm forgetting something. It took several years to work out all the bugs but now it is doing fine. "Knock on Wood". Ohhh, and when I went to 12v for the fridge, I needed more amp hours so I added a third battery, there's room and got the Flow Rite system and now it's just a two minute job and no muss or fuss!! Enjoy your mods and don't get too crazy like I did. Glad I like it so much cause I put lots of money in it!! Bob Trice

Welcome to the forum. A scan gauge is a device that you plug into your engine computer to monitor how all the systems are doing while you are driving.
