Maybe Dometic should put them on all their fridges and lower expectations from the get go.

We have a travel alarm that we have used for years. If you push on the front of it, a blue light turns on and you can see the time. That's handy at, say, 4 am. In our new trailer, there wasn't a convenient place to put it that is handy to the bed. We perched it on top of the stove, but that was not a good location.

When I built our spice rack, I had some leftover oak. It looked like the perfect solution to our need. I built a very simple shelf that could hold the travel clock and a few other things, like eyeglasses.

I learned that the oak colored buttons along the edges of the panels in the trailer conceal screws that hold the panels in place, so I used one of them to hold the left side of the shelf, and I put a screw into the frame next to the refrigerator door to hold the right side.

We'll see how well it works in our camping trip coming up soon.

Ron in BC, Hugh and Pat, got me taking a close look at the dinette sitting space in my trailer. Had no need to raise the floor space but, Ron's raising the bench height idea hit me right square where I sat.

Here's my copycat solution, Ron. Going up that 3 inches really feels awesome.

Sort of like an Escape "high chair" mod, nice work Myron. You may be running out of projects on that unit soon....

And I bet your feet are still flat on the floor.

Did I miss a mod? When did you add the storage shelf at the front of the table? Photos?

Great Scott! You had me for a minute there ...went back to the past and found I actually did post a picture, at #256. Not to worry, any excuse for picture postings' a good one, so here you go...


PS when I do run out of mods, Jim, it will for sure be a kick in the butt black day.

So you did. Very handy area for shelves to hold all those little items close at hand. Too bad ETI didn't glass on a couple of parallel battens on the front wall and make it easier for owners to attach items to.

You run out of mods, not likely, you probably have so much more junk too good to throw out that needs to be used in a mod.
