This is an inexpensive and non-damaging mod that you'll love! These lights come on a big spool and can be stuck onto just about any surface.

- Augmenting the chassis or frame in any way—this includes welding additional pieces to the frame, removing pieces of the frame, drilling holes, or attaching any item without prior approval (even bike racks!)
- Putting holes in the sidewalls
- Removing or adding anything to exterior storage compartments that causes damage
There are tons of ways to maximize your storage space without voiding the warranty! Here's our favorite idea!
Although containers can be bulky, they will make your life a whole lot easier! Label each container with its contents, and that way you won't have to potentially unpack your whole passthrough storage to search for one item! This works for the interior too, in cupboards, the refrigerator, bathroom, and pretty much anywhere you store stuff!

Other Warranty Tips
- Some modifications require prior approval straight from the manufacturer, so get in touch with the company and ask for approval in writing before diving into a DIY mod.
- Even if you don't damage the aesthetic of the RV, adding items that will cause your RV to become overburdened to the point that it causes damage could void your warranty.
- Maintain the upkeep of your RV to keep it from disrepair, as simple neglect can void the warranty.
As a rule of thumb: If a modification alters or damages the RV in any way, assume that it will void the warranty! Use your intuition and common sense, and when in doubt, ASK! We hope this information is finding you before you have made some unfortunate changes to your RV!
