If you sit for a long time it may be slightly uncomfortable but overall not too bad. There was one more shelf that we didn't use, that would have made it impossible to "accommodate".
All we did to attach it was one small wood screw with a washer into the wall between the decorative swirls in the shelf. Ben about 1k miles and so far it's holding up fine.

Clipper Mods

Just ordered the stove cover and a bunch of other stuff...it's never ending.
What does everyone do with the bottom bunk window? Have read that you can use "reflective" material of some type and double sided velcro. What is the reflective material? Any other solutions? Don't know why they didn't put some type of curtain there.

I have a 2016 Viking 17BH and I was looking at your mods, thanks for posting great ideas there.

So, I decide to show what I did tonight, 300w power inverter connected directly in electrical panel, I used a old inverter with a 12volt lighter connecter that I have disconnected.

The idea is to have a power cord, same way the one outside work, that I can pull and connect to my power station where TV and USB ports and available.

I think it will work pretty well to power up the TV and charge cell phones from our pair of 27 batteries when boondocking and it look neat.

I can elaborate the process if this get interesting to someone.

Looks pretty cool. Do you have a 12v tv? Also how did you wore it to the main power?

My tv is a normal 110 volt thatís why a inverter was required.

About the wiring, I start by completely unscrewing the electrical panel, only to find out that all wires are weld and accessible by removing the wood panel from the bench...

So I used the green wire, which is the TV antenna and booster (in my rv) to connect the 300w inverter, I didnít change the 15 amp fuse on that circuit but my inverter have a 30 amp fuse integrated.

About the 12 volts TV, I did some research online, global thinking is that we lose around 10% when using a inverter instead of direct 12 volt. When I look at the cost of 12 volts TV, I'm ok with my setup

Next mod will be backsplash, I does it stand after 1 winter?
