As always Myron, your mods are simply designed, and first rate.

Back last year, my post #256, I showed off my 19’s new dinette table mod. I made the table slightly smaller, has a handy wall shelf, and of course the inner Jackson Pollock splatter paint job. New table employs the old factory double-pedestals but not the factory slider. If I ever want to re-install the original table it will pop right on.

Today, many big Macs later, decided I needed the slider. Instead of cannibalizing the Escape table slider I decided to go looking for a new mechanism at Lowes. Went to their drawer department. Not sure what type slider would serve best, if at all. I settled on a drawer bottom, center mount one, at $5.27 each. Has ball bearings, looked adaptable. Happy to say it works good.

Only thing is it slides from left to right to allow easier access to street side seating but curbside people don't get the extra thigh room.

So, I guess you are now relegated to sitting in the smaller seat now? Like your table.....

Hi: MyronL... Very nice work. For those occupying the non slide side I'd recommend a Slimfast shake. Alf

The factory standard port to shore power is weak, cheap plastic, this we know. Not many options out there. Others solved the problem with a different, sealed unit and separate shore power line. Just beefed mine up without going for a replacement.

I cut up an old inner tube. I added a support shield made from thin aluminum to help keep the thing in place. Then secured it in the port with a home-made plastic bezel made from PVC.We’ll see how long this mod lasts.

Is there still room for the plug and the door to close? Picture with plug please. Thanks.
