2604 Slide Compartment Mod

I have a 2011 Rockwood 2604. I noticed that the dinette seat has a outside compartment door. On the inside of that seat there is a door to accesss from the inside The other seat has a draw on the inside. When I lifted the top of the seat I noticed that 2/3 of the area was waste unless you took the top of the seat off. I decided I wanted to be able to use that space from the outside.
I bought a new compartment hatch. Then I measured and found the center on the wall in the seat section. I drilled a 1/8" hole to through the wall to the outside. This gave me the center of the cutout on the outside for the hatch.
Now I have storage compartment under both seats. Just thought I would share this with others that need more outside compartment space.

Very nice work. Very brave man to do that kind of mod. Wife looked at me and said "don't even think about it"!

Nice work! I remember the day my DH put that new outside outlet on our TT, which was only 2 days old at the time....I nearly had a heart attack! But it looks great and no one would know it wasn't there from the factory. Can't figure out why there is only one outside outlet on the entire unit....other than to save money.
