Might just drop the idea..... I can get in the pass thru easily but I can't
do much when I'm in there. It's uncomfortable, just about breaks my neck
to hold my head up and see/do anything. I'm forced to lay on my right side
so my "good arm" is mostly pinned under me. I'm working one handed.
Very awkward. I get in there each fall to winterize but that's pretty
easy to make the hose connection to the antifreeze jug and get back out.
I did remove the filter canister a couple days ago. I'm thinking about it but it's a real PIA to
do any modifications in there.
If I was serious about this- it might be easier to remove the bed mattress
and take off the bed base and get at it that way.....
DW wants new carpet. Ours is cheap junk and looked flattened and worn
when we bought the trailer new! We bought it at a week long RV show
and lots of folks walked thru there and the cheap carpet took a real
beating. One day I might yank out the bed and under bed storage
and pull up the carpet and replace it. I could gain easy access to the
pass thru storage at that time and I would definitely tackle the water filter
to surge tank conversion at that time.
OR we'll hit the lottery and buy a new honking big diesel pickup and a
new 5er and sell this one and forget about it!
