A Few little conveniences done

1-I am using a piece of 18 inch? 2x4 to prop open the bed storage to relieve my back and free my hands to hunt for stuff.
2-I am using a short bungee cord with the wire type ends/bendable to keep the table storage flap open, runs from flap hole to edge of inside roof.
3-I am using AcuRite digital refrig/freezer thermometer with wireless remote to monitor the frig temp.I keep the alarm function off for now. I put one on top shelf, one on bottom and set the monitor on top of range. I had a case of food poisoning and never want to experience that again!!
4-And, I am running a Valterra FridgeCool Fan ( 2 D batteries last a month ) to keep the air moving in frig.May help to avoid frozen bottom stuff.
The last two I found on Amazon. Frig monitor shows current temps and history of last high, last low temps.

I am monitoring the temp in mine in the driveway as I don't want another case of the food poisoning next month. I have it on electric and so far I see that when the
AC was off overnight and checked the frig this afternoon, temp had risen from 41 to 54 degrees. I turned on the AC and turned up power to chill frig further, but I can see already that it takes hours to recoup the loss of cold once it warms up. So I will continue to use wireless remote to monitor on my upcoming trip. Last year I found my eggs were freezing and learned to use upper shelf for them, put meats on bottom. If you ever get sick at a campground as I did with no anti-diarrheal, no tea and crackers, and two dogs to care for, you will understand. I had the frig on propane continuously, but had an overnight repair job on the way to the CG and assumed the propane was keeping up with the frig, boy was I wrong.

We added baggage catch to hold the dining bench lid up. It's been a very helpful add on.

I like that: I was kinda scared to screw into the sidewall, not sure what is underneath. Do you recall how long your screws were? And where did you find the catch?
