"Home improvements"

I have made a few modifications that have been useful. One is to install a monitor that tells me what charge the house battery has left on it (bought it at a marine supply store.
The second is to remove the microwave to gain drawer space for easy access to clothes. We are often dry camping so the microwave is not really needed. If we have hookups we can always bring the toaster oven if need be. I made the drawer with 2 levels (like a silverware drawer) by reversing European style slides for the top drawer. The overall drawer is attached with KV bottom mount full extension slides.

Very nice! I like the battery monitor - will ask my DH if he will put one in mine!

The drawers are handy, enjoy seeing this mod done, clever use of space if one doesnt forsee using their microwave. (I use mine quite a bit)

Looking forward to seeing what else you do to make this puppy "yours"!

Have fun!

Nice job on the drawer! I did something similar when I took out the microwave, only I put a door on rather than a drawer. I have a feeling when my DW sees your drawer it'll be on my to-do list. I'll have to mod my mod!

Love the drawer mod!
