That's some nice work. In my 2014 the space below the furnace is occupied by the electrical panel. I know they moved it as I've seen photos of the 2015s. I have noticed that the drawer gets warm from heat inside the cabinet. I bought a decorative grating (floor register) and plan to open a vent location on the side of the cabinet to vent the heat build-up.

The shoe storage/laundry hamper is great and something I'll have to add. I see foam insulation on some of the pipes by the water pump. Is this something you added?

I like your idea of the grate to let the heat out from around the drawer and will be adding that to my list of things to do.

The foam is part of my noise reduction plan for the pump, the foam on all the water lines plus some added rubber under the pump. Helped quiet it down quite a bit.

I like the electric panel in the upper cabinet even though running new or extra wiring is more difficult, our last trailer had the panel at floor level and it always seemed it was getting kicked for one reason or another.

I wrote this guide to show how I went about adding a drawer to my 17FQ.

Another thing I will have to copy, I like that slide in the drawer because like you say it is DEEP. Plus it gives just a bit more added storage.

Finally put together a PDF on the things I did that I hope will improve the function of the refrigerator.

John & Mary Jo,

Thanks for the info on the fridge. I think I'll do the same next spring when prepping for the camping season.
