24S storage mod

After a couple of events where I had to gain access to the area under the bed on the 24S I decided to put an access door in the large storage compartment under there. This gives me access to the inverter, water filter, HW bypass and a general look at everything in that area.

Like they say, if you want it done right do it yourself. Very professional.

Makes so much sense! I'd recommend that as a manufactures change.

storage mod 24S

What a great idea. I hate all those screws half of which don't hit anything. Where did you get that door?

Also, what is the red handle valve? I don't have that in mine.

Thanks.

I got the door at Menards it's just an access door for dry wall. The red handle is a propane connection that my Brother in law helped me put in to hook up a hose for my grill. It's connected to the pipe going to the furnace.

I do know that some stupid things we do is a code requirement.

We have an access door that we attach using barrel latches. Door comes off all the time, hard to get back on. When I asked engineering about it, they said if we hinge a door in certain areas it MUST be for storage only. Access panels must be screwed on, otherwise a consumer assumes it is for storage and puts things in there when they shouldn't be.
