I'm still puttering around on my rig getting ready for fishing next month. I finished the Victron battery monitor install, I've got a couple new AGM's on tenders at home ready to go.
I added a USB outlet down by the parking brake to charge my Tireminder instead of stretching it across the dash.
Also mounted two Add-a-Drawers under the dinette table, one side had to be modified a bit to clear the table release lever.
The floor mats I put in awhile ago but the drivers side was sliding around so after trying Velcro with no luck I think I solved it with some heavy duty non slip pad and floor mat clips I found on the web.
Next will be the 5star tuner that's on its way .

Alright! Now I know how much room there is with both slides in on a 2800 / 2801! That's a picture you'll never see on a dealers website!

I like the dinette drawers but will have to wait and see if they will fit our 2800. We ordered our unit with the dinette mount as a traditional pole and pedestal instead of the "Dream Dinette". I like to take the big table out and use a smaller game table in the evening.

Nice job, we've all been busy. I like the led's, are you happy with the amount of light the three put out?
I noticed today the door feels more solid with the bar, really happy with it.
Found a couple small "AA" powered led lights with motion activation for the cupboard under the sink but still looking for some ideas for organizing stuff in there. Mostly pots and pans but it definitely needs some shelves or rack.

Yes three are just enough to see the cup holder. I can always add a fourth if I decide I need more but I don't do a tremendous amount of night driving. If you drive at night you will soon see some type of light is a must. The screen door bar should be everyone's first mod. Makes the screen door feel more solid and so much easier to pull shut due to the low step well.
Tonight I spent an hour trying to figure out storage and where to put things and how to organize. I am leaning towards shelves of some sort in the bedroom closet slide out and under the sink. Just don't know if I want to build shelves or hit Lowe's for some type of plastic organizers or wire shelving I can adapt.

The screen door bar also makes a great place for drying a dish towel...

I've been looking at some pictures of the under sink area and it seems to have a lot of space. Do the sink water lines, or drain, block much of the area? I'm thinking wire racks to organize that area. Hopefully I can get the toaster oven, Griddler, and a couple other small appliances in that space.

For the bedroom closet in the "W" we have clear plastic drawers, similar to these, that are stacked in the bottom. Hopefully they will move over to the GTS easily as they really help stay organized. And the "W" has a lot less drawer space...

What are you guys using the storage at the foot of the bed for? And how big are those compartments?

The cupboards at the end of the beds aren't very big we've just put a few pairs of shoes in there so far. I'll try to get a pic and measurements under the sink next time I'm out to the rig, it's a big cupboard, the lines don't take up much space but it definitely needs a second "tier".

I was thinking of building wooden shelves in one sue of the bedroom closet. I would prefer shelves to drawers, but of course plastic means less weight. Hmmmm.
