Two little but practical mods...
  • Shelf for 10 inch sauté pan is up high to accommodate handle overhang
  • 1x2" bar keeps doors shut in transit.

If you are looking for fry pans, here is a review of non-stick from America's Test Kitchen. I slip mine into heavy plastic bags to keep them from rubbing during travel.

Watched that video --suggests food sticks just as well on a "non-stick" pan as a Dometic cools in Texas. Feeling not so bad my new "non-stick" 10-incher only cost me $13 at WallyWorld. Came with a lid, too.

New storage hole under the furnace

Latest project: I cut a hole underneath the furnace yesterday. I did it because after pulling the furnace out to easily run new wires for that other project I had one hell of a time returning that bugger back in place. Two screws hold it to the wall and it sits on an internal cross brace, but the exhaust tube must slip into its mate attached to the outside bezel. That was the rub, big time. Such a G-D snug fit I had to hammer the furnace home to get it completely in. It was a bear.

Maybe I just got spooked, but utter frustration resulted in my peeling up the floor panel of the wardrobe above, and cutting that hole below the furnace, all in the major effort to better see what I was doing and getting a hand in there to confidently mate them two pipes.

Woke up very early this AM, pondering now, how to make the new storage hole look nice.

Shoe storage space, it will also dry out your wet shoes when running.

MyronL, I guess, just to complicate the mod even further, most of the work had to be performed laying down on your side?

Yep. Been feeling like I been spelunking... Have considered moving the fumes detector sensor factory installed underneath the furnace, to make for a bigger new storage hole (wet boots, etc.). But note there just isn't anywhere to put it.

Myron,
I believe there is some room/space behind on the piece to the right of your converter that goes across the front, you may be able to squeeze it in along the bottom which has the largest space available.

Myron, have you looked at the mod markvt posted a few days ago. It relates directly to that area. I'm going to do the same thing as well as open up the cabinet end under the flip-up counter. I'm just going to order the doors from ETI.

Just looked over markvt's mod. Very interesting and sensible. Not ready to be moving LP lines at the moment though. (Still recovering from moving that bloody furnace around.) What are you planning for under the flip-up counter?

I will have to get out to the trailer to look over that spot at bottom front, CP-h.
