Simple Pleasures - Sink Cover Storage

Finally figured out a place to store the sink cover when the sink is in use. Placed a small screw on the wall adjacent to the stove with a rotating plastic piece to hold the sink cover in place while using the sink.

Neat! Have you used this while driving? I only ask because sooner or later I would forget to put it back.
Thanks!

I haven't, it won't last long if forgotten about by design. First turn will likely launch the cover through the coach.

Ours goes in the drawer under the cabinet that is under the sink. We call it the tray drawer. It could also go in the cabinet under the sink but would have to be secured if left there in transit. Just FYI for others.

Simple Non-Destructive Solution

Here is my simple solution to what to do with the sink cover when it's not covering the sink. Three little strategically placed transparent hooks hold it in place. Yes, you can drive with it stored in this location.

Our double sink cover goes under a dinette seat cushion when traveling and leans against the bulkhead between the galley and the bathroom when not in use as a sink cover when camping. This provides security when traveling and handy place to grab and use when needed as a sandwich board or whatever when stopped.

I learned about forgetting the sink cover. I had placed it behind the raised glass cover over the stove. At the first right hand turn there was a mighty crash and glad beads everywhere. I'm still finding shards of glass a year later. The stupid tax for that little effort was $250 for a new stove cover. And I was moving the rig around the cottage property. Not even going anywhere. Ready, Fire, Aim is my operational motto.

Sorry. That should read glass beads, not glad beads. There was nothing glad about it. Almost as much fun as me bending the awning supports on an overhanging tree in Savannah GA the first week I owned the rig. Look up, my wife reminds me every time we get near civilization.

My guess is that we have a lot in common! Left the steps down once too often and bent them so badly I had to remove them. Happened in a USFS campground that had 4" steel pipe aside the road and I caught one just right (wrong). Now use a little plastic stool to access the trailer. Stool cost $12, new step would assembly cost $120. That's ten stools.
