Yea I haven't even begun under the sink. It needs shelves but I haven't figured out just how to put them to maximize space

If you guys will post the measurements of the cabinet under the sink I'll start looking as well. Any potential interference from the sink plumbing would be good to know as well. This is one of the first mods I'll need to make to keep the DW happy...

I have the measurements, I'll have to translate them in to something legible. Since the cupboard is half blind I think just a short shelf across the blind half is about it for me otherwise you can't get the things out from the bottom easily without unpacking everything from the open side.
They do make swing/slide out shelves for blind cupboards but they are heavier and more expensive than I think I need.
But basically the cupboard is 25" x 18" and 27" high. The sink drain comes down 10" from the aisle end, the trap is 19" high then the drain goes up to 21" and then runs horizontally to the corner closest to the stove.

Hmmm. This is off topic, but do any of you know what the switch above the mirror adjustment switch on the driver's door is? When it is on a little red light on it illuminates, but I have no idea what it controls. I can't find any mention of it in the manual.

RedLdr1, since the Ford C-Max is flat-towable, why are you using a dolly with it???

Three major reasons... First, while the C-Max is flat towable it has issues since it is a hybrid. The 12VDC battery will go flat in a few hours as the car turns on and off electrical components automatically. This can be addressed running a trickle feed and some other work arounds but it is a hassle. The Active Shutters in the grill need to be removed. Plus the warranty issues that can arise. There is much better info on those issues on the C-Max forum than here.

Second, I only keep cars two to three years. The cost of constantly setting up a car to tow would get old...fast!

Third, with the dolly I can load about just about any FWD car. My wife's Fusion is not flat towable so I can use the dolly with it.

It just worked out better to use a dolly when everything was considered.

Thanks for that info. I see a fair number of C-Max Hybrids and Energis being flat-towed.
