Medicine cabinet mayhem

Well the DW wanted to "organize" the bath sink area. We found two great items at Wallyworld labeled as mainstays product, one in bath items and the other in the sationary area. Plastic shower caddies (10.2W x 4.1L x 5.2H, remove the suction cups, picture below) that will fit nicely two to a shelf with a 4" inch width to play with (red solo cup fits nicely to use up the remaining space), and drawer organizer interlocking trays (6W x 9L x 2H) that will fit three wide on the top shelf below the sink.

very

Just thougt I would share...

Looks like a great solution. It's a challenge to remember to open the medicine cabinet slowly after we've been on the road. The medicine cabinet is above the toilet in our RV, but luckily the lid is always down when we're on the road so nothing has landing it the toilet ... yet. This will help a lot.

Hoglou, great minds think alike. We use the exact same item, only ours sits on the vanity top. I think we used stick-on velcro tabs to hold it in place. We use the same item on the little shelves at each side of the head of the queen bed. And we have 2 or 3 of the quarter-round corner units in use too. One sits on a shelf in the shower, so we can keep shower essentials there all the time. I think I used 3M dual lock tape on that one. (Think super strong velcro.) I also have one on the cab front facing side (end) of the cabinet over the dinette. I might put a second one there as well. Those are installed with screws.



For kitchen organizing, my wife wanted a small utensil caddy to hang on the back wall above the stove. We found some made of bamboo at Bed, Bath, & Beyond. That was last year. I just looked at their website and do not see it.

Up till now, we have not used a toad. So it's important to keep common things handy but stored at the same time. Much less to pick up when it's time to break camp to go to town for something.

Hey snowman9000,

Have you put a top on the stove yet? we added one that has turned into the primary countertop for coffee and such.

Lou, for the stove we use a wooden slab with rubber grip stuff glued to the bottom side. It only covers half the stove so it can be used while a burner is used too.

Mods

My mods... I am open to new ideas!

Reworked the water drains so they empty at the back of the coach, and I can drain the HW without a head stand.

Added a storage area behind the drawer under the rear facing dinnette seat.

Moved the sub woofer for more space inder the forward facing seat.

Added the two GE led light (120v) bars from wallyworld. One on the cabinet bottom next to the beroom tv, and one on the side of the cabinet behind the driver seat. we use these lights almost exclusively now.

Added a power strip behind the cook top for coffee in the morning and the blender for the evening. Ran the wire up by the sink window to the power box.

Added a half round diameter pencil cup (from wally again) and mounted it by using one of the screws on the padded section behind the driver seat for the DW's glasses.

We have the bigfoot lift so the controller fits in a stock plastic box (from WW again).

Retired the heavy factory table top and now use a 2'x3' tray. Made a much lighter weight plywood templete to keep the bed conversion (using a pvc tube and not the alum one). The wood stores perfect against the back wall against the tail lights on the passenger side.

Made an 8" high bed stop to keep the grandkids in the cab over bed at night. Stores next to the front of the cab bed and fits under the mattress when in use.

Added a rodent cover on the fan opening under the bed.

Added alum corner edging to the rear bay sheft to keep from goobering up leading edge.

Swap most of the lights to LED.

Added 1/4" round cutian rods to the food lockers cabinets over the couch.

Added a 4' ladder to the rear bay.

Added 120v power in the rear bay.

Added ice maker to the rear bay.

Ordered insulated front and side window covers so we don't use the curtains.

Bought a oil heater that stows in the water bay.
DeLonghi TRN0812T Portable Oil-Filled Radiator with Programmable Timer

Bought a step (gets used more as a table then a step) and it fits btw the front seats and gives us a decent snack table (road popcorn).
Stromberg Carlson Product PA-100 Aluminum Folding Platform Step

Bought a thread tap for the HW heater
Irwin 3/4" - 14 Npt Taper Pipe Tabs

Got the DW some coach cookware
Magma 10 Piece Gourmet Nesting Stainless Steel Cookware Set

Found a shoe carrier that will fit behind the bathroom door
Rubbermaid Configurations Shoe Organizer, 20-Pocket, Natural (FG3F20DWNATUR)

A folding table (2x4) that stows 2'x2' fits in the floor board of the passengers side rear bay.

Over the winter we are working on inventory sheets for each area so we can load and roll quickly. Beyond the support items (tools and parts) we are working our list to have food related items as permenent, frig, freezer, fresh, and replenishment. rule one is everything must a have an assigned home in the coach.

And of course the requsite Hula girl on the dash....

We did that too. Fits perfectly.

I love to read ideas like these. I should photo and post our mods.

------------

I could not find a printer small enough to fit there By the time I needed one. I went with a small brothers wireless. Like you I haul a PC and printer with me (I can frequently work out of the office).

Woofer all the way forward and right. open to better solutions..

Walked out the coach just now to get the name of the window cover.
https://www.heatshieldstore.com/catalog

also found a jar of peanut M&M (enjoying them now).

The tap is incase I need to chase the HW threads.

I also carry a cordless Bosch drill, and use those batteries in the bosch radio so my XM broacast from the coach can be played outside.
Of all the adds / changes the step has proven the most enjoyable. I can reach a sandwich without bending while going down the road.

Would love to see the equipment list of items others carry... I carry just about a spare everything, and now also carry air line parts since I lost a rear air bag while on the road. A foot of line and a couple of quick connects will prevent from happening again. Trying to plug a 3/16" hole in an air line in a parking lot with no.4 hose clamps and duct tape on a Sunday was no fun ....

HOGLOU - All of your ideas are GREAT! Our medicines cabinet and other small shelving areas have been saved. Can you help me find sheets for a queen sized motor home mattress that don't need modified? I'm no seamstress 😊
