2016 364TS Kitchen Storage

I am scheduled to pick up our 364TS next Saturday March 5th. SO excited but I'm concerned about kitchen storage since there really is no pantry because of the residential fridge. Is anyone experiencing space issues storing food items along with dishes,pots/pans, toaster, George foreman, etc.......? And hiding a small trash can seems impossible......

Pantry is a huge issue, I'll give you that, the small trash can is not only possible but included. Open the door under the sink.

Trash can

I did see that tiny trash can in the cabinet at the RV show but I'm thinking I may have to "evict" the can and use that spot for pot/pan storage. Maybe I'll try a "half circle style" stainless can against the wall next to the dinette.....

We have a more normal size kitchen trash can (2 young kids - generate garbage, often) and it fits nicely at the end of the hall while traveling and doesn't impede getting in and out of the bathroom. When set up we put it along the wall by the dinette. We use behind TV as pantry as well as the cabinet over the microwave. for pots and pans we use the oven and the cabinet between oven and sink. Dishes, cups, bowls, over dinette. We also use under one of the dinette for Water bottles, diet Coke, sodas, things of that nature. Not that it provides a lot but you can put a series of them for can good storage next to frig, we only have the one because we hang the mop and broom, otherwise you could probably get 4 double shelves on that wall. Also get some child locks like these for the frig door. The bungee works great for the freezer, but not at all for the frig, going around a curve or turning a corner with a half full frig and a gallon of milk or 2 liter bottle can pop the frig open enough to be a headache to try everything (it hangs there waiting for you to release the bungee) and catch with the stock bungee, the child locks keep the door tightly closed at all times while traveling.

Modmike, I've got a 2015 364TS, what does the "F" stand for on the 2016?

Under the dinette seats for storage of pots/pans and less frequently used staple foods?

Stern,
Great pics, thanks! The wire shelves are a perfect storage idea. (I would have loved for forest river to use that space for a pocket door.)
It appears the fridge is magnetic? (my GE Stainless fridge at home isn't). Thats great if it is. I'm sure my wife will plaster it with photos since she can't on the GE!

I think the "F" stands for full body paint (not sure but I thought I heard a sales person say that in one of the 500 youtube clips I've watched! lol)

We have the same issue in the house we have a stainless (in appearance) GE not magnetic, but the Frigidaire is.
There is a pretty good dead spot above the frig but haven't looked at trying to convert that yet into something useful yet. There is a board running front to back dead center that acts as a wedge for the frig, and 2 long screws going into through the framing of the frig into the deck.
BTW, the frig is a pain to get out because of the elevated position off the floor. I ended up building a landing out of 2x6 framing and a thick piece of plywood, so when I need to pull it out I can bring it in from the garage removed the two screws and it rolls right out without any damage to the flooring or trim work. - When not in use makes a good stage for the 6yr old in the garage...
Why did I need to pull it out you ask. Well shortly after we got the unit we went on a trip to visit my sister who had just moved into a new home. Well their kitchen had what appeared to be our exact frig, so I asked my BIL, how do they all live on the little bit of ice that comes out of the door? Seems like two or three good mugs and we are out of ice in the bin and subsequently we were keeping a bag of ice in the freezer drawer. We he says, I hardly use the door, and pulls open the freezer and there is a normal sized icemaker and bin. SO I explorer ours and there appeared to be holes in the same location for a icemaker, so I got on the frigidaire website and tried to find an aftermarket icemaker, well long story somewhat shorter, three icemakers, and ultimately 4 service calls (and other parts ordered) from the appliance guy they sent out and wallla, we now have ice on a replenishable basis!
