I have been contemplating the shelf under the kitchen sink. The drain pipe is quite in the way the way it is routed. I was thinking of a fold down shelf running against the right hand wall. It would have points of attachment right by the cabinet door and in the right hand back corner, since the side of the cabinet is paper thin. I am slowed down by not knowing if it will need support in the middle. although it is only 19". The shelf would be 14 inches from the bottom of the cabinet, which will allow room for the Keurig. I could use a 1x3 for the support and chains from above for added support ( if I can get up under there - I have to check that possibility tomorrow). I am starting to wonder whether or not to bother. Will keep you updated. I would be very much interested in other ideas.

I found a free standing wire shelf that should fit across the very left hand side, I'll have to try it out and see if it helps any.

I nixed the first approach. Too complicated. I am thinking of just building a box with two cubbies, (upper and lower for the right hand side ( 8.5" outside width). Since the outside of the under sink cabinet is paper thin, I would have to re-enforce it with wood on the outside, screwed into the bottom and side posts of the cabinet and into the counter or top post, if there is one. A 1x15" piece should do it. I could then screw the box on the inside to the back of the cabinet so it does not put pressure on the drain pipe. This would also provide a sturdy surface on the backside of the cabinet to hang my stainless steel pan, perhaps wth Velcro holding the pan body steady during travel. Still a lot of work but very doable.

I tried the wire shelf and it helped some it's better than it was. When the Keurig and toaster come out it won't be too bad. I did my first de-winterization (the dealer winterized it) and it all went smooth didn't take long.
Looks like we can hit the road on Monday the fish are biting in B.C. and my buddies are already there. I've been waiting for the guy to finish building my kayak/scooter trailer but it's delayed so he's giving me a loaner kayak trailer for a couple weeks so we can still go.

Had the day off so I did a few little things. Installed a soap dispenser and a camco garbage can in the bathroom. (couldn't find a garbage can in off white). Ran some wiring and put in a weather display station near my control panel. Still playing with the location of outside sensor but I'm leaning towards the propane tank area. Got myself a fridge freezer temp display. Finally got a small air ionizer and put it above the door.

For under the sink storage have y'all looked at an adjustable wire shelving unit? The one shown Here allows for the sink drain and other plumbing by moving the shelve sections around as necessary. That, and a regular wire shelf on the left hand side, might handle the area fairly well.

sglm17 how are you attaching the dispenser to the thin bathroom wall?

Interesting idea RedLdr1. Did you try this and get it to fit. My drain pie goes off diagonally to the left front corner of the cabinet.

Speaking of sticky tape I stuck a couple motion sensor led lights in the cupboard it helps a lot. Funny some of the places they put lights and where they didn't. Just ordered the Bluetooth dongle for the Victron battery meter so you can monitor charging from a phone app. Totally not necessary but somehow I need one lol.
