Outlet protectors & counter shelves
Before any lectures on plug in surge protectors not providing adequate protection.....yes, I now have a surge protector for the entire trailer (portable Surge Guard w/LCD display) - this post is to share these cool outlet protectors that have USB capability & hopefully will protect whatever is plugged into them....not to say the rest of the trailer's electrical appliances (fridge, converters, air conditioner, etc) wouldnt bite the dust with poor power quality or weather with no protection.
Here are the two types of outlet protectors I got for the cabinet outlets. I decided I didnt like the look of cords trailing the trailer walls or counter top, so got these surge protectors that plug into the outlet, gaining me a few USB outlets as well!
The white outlet is very cool - it not only has 2 USB chargers, but has two rotating outlets which allow for bulky plugs to rotate out of the way if next to each other & it has a $$ guarantee to protect what is plugged into it.
The black outlet also adds two USB outlets & keeps the same # of AC outlets.
Both have color coded lights that show at a glance they are protecting, charging & when they are not.
The shelf over the sink is a bathroom towel holder (minus the towel holder) LOL
I cut clear plexi to cover the wire shelves for solid surface for the small coffee maker to sit on. The silverware/utensil container sits underneath, plenty of space to pop the lid for fast reach of a spatula or knife.
The opposite side is the microwave cabinet where the tv/dvd combo sits atop another shelf.
Using these small shelves gains cabinet/storage space, reduces counter clutter & allows easy reach of frequently used items.
A sidenote: For those with the sofa bed models, if you havent already discovered, you can store things behind the cushion when the sofa is slightly pulled out. I put my pjs, shower kit, lap throw & anything else that isnt frequently used during the day.
