Mod 2: Installed Progressive Industries surge protector in the cabinet in the bathroom. Plenty of slack wire to splice it in and plenty of room to work.

Status monitor fit on the front of the cabinet. Always nice to see "E0"
Attachment 60655

Mod 3: Plexiglass panel on the shower side of the bathroom cabinet.
Attachment 60656

Pop rivets made for a very fast installation. Aluminum rivets won't rust and a drop of caulk sealed the center.
Attachment 60657

Mod 4: Shower splash guards and shower curtain clips
Attachment 60658

Used pop rivets again to anchor the splash guards. The tape and caulk alone left them wobbly.

Mod 5: Garbage can anchor. Got into my kayak rigging kit for this one. Used some nylon anchors and bungee cord. Now we don't have to secure it when traveling. Attachment 60662
Attachment 60663

Also swapped out the shower head for an oxygenics. More mods in the plans but these were the most important upgrades for the first round. None of these ideas were original and I appreciate all of the pics and ingenuity that others here are so willing to share. Thanks!

Ok so those shower guards and plexiglass really help? We just got our 23IKSS and I was hoping by design the shower would not leak or go all over the place? Is there anyway to avoid this or is this the only way to prevent shower leak be showers in our RV are by me and the GF no kids?

Thanks

As the saying goes, YMMV, so give it a try and see how it works. I've got kids so I want to protect it. It's a tight fit in there for adults and odds are good that you'll bump the curtain while showering. The clips and guards keep the curtain where it needs to be and the plexiglass panel protects the side of the cabinet.

I like those water deflectors (maybe in plexi?). I did the plexi and DW sewed in velcro to the shower curtain in our last HTT. Didn't have much water splash since it had the tub and not the pan. Mounted the ems on the back of the wfco and the display is on the wall facing the kitchen. I thought of under the sink as I stared at all that open space. Figured the display could go on the wall by the dinette.

Where did you buy the plexiglass and what did you use to cut it so neatly?

I got mine at Home Depot. You basically score it well with a box cutter and snap it. Similar to doing dry wall.

I'm a pack rat. So, I saved the expensive screen protector from my old 50" projection tv. I used a utility knife like you score glass and snapped it.

Yup. Lowes and Home Depot sell it in various sizes and thicknesses. I used a thicker piece on the screen door to make it fur ball proof, and used a thinner piece on the bathroom cabinet. They have a tool for cutting it that was less than $5 that made it a breeze. Just score it and flex it at the score line to snap it off. A utility knife would work too but I like buying tools.

Would anyone have the dimensions of that BR cabinet panel handy?

I'm headed to Home Depot in the am to pick up some plexiglass (and other Roo materials) and realized that was the one thing I didn't measure before putting our rig in storage. Duh!

Many thanks!

The DW put contact paper up on the side of the bathroom cabinet and it seems to work pretty well. I like the plexiglass idea but I was wondering, wouldn't mold grow if moisture gets between the plexiglass and the wood or did you caulk around the plexiglass?
