Link worked for me on iPhone. I'm not familiar with your TT but use totes in our MH inside and out. There is a such a multitude of size, colour and plastic strength available that there seems to be one for every use.

I leave my hitch and bars outside locked to the trailer tongue. I found a cable lock that will thread through the various holes. Too much weight to put in any of my locked storage areas.

Thanks everyone! I especially like the fence post mods. And thanks for mentioning the weight issue. I hadn't considered that. The window is fixed and we brought her home today. Looks like one more week of winter in CT before we can get serious and set things up.

I agree .......I store items in the slide compartment that are relatively light and will be removed and used while camping. No heavy stuff........This will keep any extra weight from being there when the slide is extended and in use.

In the 233s the slide is the u shaped dinette set up for 6 people. You shouldnt have any issue with what ever you want to put in the slide. I could most definitely be wrong and if I am I might have to relocate some of my stuff

This is the dinette we have in the 2500TS. "You (I) shouldnt have any issue with what ever you want to put in the slide." You are absolutely correct, because I am not gambling on damaging a slide to store heavy items at the outer most edge. Those tracks, gears and motors are worth more than a gamble. This is not meant to disrespect your views, but is meant to give others a different opinion.

I would have to agree with you. I wouldn't want to damage any of those parts. And no disrespect taken at all. I value everyone's opinion on this site. I should have been more precise. I meant store what ever you want with in reason. Definitely don't keep all the family's bowling balls in there. Lol

I was out tinkering today. Unpacking my Amazon order with parts, pieces, adapters and such. I decided to put it all into the slide compartment. Will also add leveling boards and jack blocks. I figure 90% of this will be removed for camper setup removing all of the weight.

I also scored a win with the rubber trays we bought this winter from a local store for winter boots and the dog dish. The width was perfect and covered up the carpeting in the compartment. It also gave some edges to keep things from sliding around too much.

Things are coming together. Still lots to do. But it's too cold now and the UConn women are playing. GO UCONN!

Hey there PEAS_PA welcome to the ROO owner family! My 2013 I have been storing the same since day 1 and it seems to work just fine with no issues so I'll share it in case it is along the lines of what you were looking for.

Passenger side forward comp. (under couch w/water heater on right side-front of trailer) I keep all my plastic leveling blocks, wheel chocks, hitch and weight distribution bars and acouple of pressure treated wooden blocks for just in case times. I installed a set of two fishing pole (plastic piece w/ open grooves filled with foam) racks inside on back of wood seat frame to hold all the metal slide and jack wrenches/handles. These stay in that rack cause I use a battery operated drill to set the stabilizer jacks...and that stays in this compartment as well. I store the vinyl/plastic camp mat that we lay on the ground outside our door by folding it up like it was in the bag we bought it in....and then I tuck it against the underside of the couch seat (cieling of the compartment) by using the false wall that separates the water heater as one side, and I use a length of 1x2 wood cut to sit on top of the wood rail under the couch and the top of the access door frame as the other side.

In the Rear comp. (left side of rig facing rear wall) I keep a hydraulic bottle jack, lug wrench, small tool kit, small rubber maid container (2.5 gall??) to hold septic tank fittings that I don't normally use but carry as "in case needed" a 1 gal rubbermaid drink style container I use for mixing toilet chemicals when needed, a bag/box of toilet chemical and the hose I use to do my black tank flushes. I also have a nice small plastic folding (from camp store) step stool I use for sitting while waiting on that flush to happen and tanks to dump.

In the Driver Side comp. under the dinette, I keep the grill, a Coleman camp stove, my power cord, my water hose and filter (small inline ones from walmart or camp store too) and I also have larger rubbermaid container (5 or 10 gal??) that I keep extension cords, awning lights, water pressure regulator, cable for tv hookup (although seldom used) and I also keep a collapsable extension pole with a 2ft window cleaning "t-bar" thingy that has the sponge like cloth on one side and rubber squeegee on other... I use that to clean/dry off my awning after camping before rolling it up.

PHEW...guess I carry ALOT of junk around in dem dare cabinets!
