Something else I'll do with my outside kitchen: add an overflow to the sink. Water went off at the campground this weekend WHILE I was using the outside sink. Wasn't sure if the faucet was off...it wasn't. Valves closed on holding tanks. Water came on sometime in the night. You figure out the rest. 3am water flooding floor in aft end of trailer. Yeah.

Not that I am aware of. Where would the vent be?

I had just heard that it was in behind the fridge and it is a vent that looks like the roof vent somewhere under the bunkbed on the kitchen side of the trailer.

Some guys were complaining because bugs could just fly right through the vent into your trailer.

I only turn mine off for storage and I make sure it is dry and cracked open at that point. While in use my kitchen door may only be closed for 6-7 hours per night before opened again

Mine too. Failure of simple math at the engineering level.

A couple mods to share with you guys



The shower drip preventer. This has been working good. No water on the floor after a shower.

And this little baby has been making showers a whole lot better.

Oxygenics bodyspa shower head. Lots of pressure way better than the cheapie the factory put on there.




A couple other mods that I didn't take any pictures of. I can if anyone is interested.

1. I also upgraded my Queen Short mattress to a full size Rv Queen mattress. It was hard to get a picture but I had to remake the frame for the bed. I added a sheet of 3/4 inch plywood to support the extra weight of the mattress at the foot of the bed. We also put a 3 inch memory foam mattress on top and I have been sleeping really good.

The only downside to this is the struts on the storage underneath the bed can't hold the weight of the mattress and the weight of the 3/4 inch frame on top of the existing frame. I will one day look into upgrading the struts, but we rarely use the storage so it hasn't been an issue.

2. I built some homemade Awning support poles out of some sherlock adjustable painters poles and a 4 inch saddle tee from a local irrigation store. We went through a thunderstorm on Friday and the awning held nice and tight. I am pretty pleased with the results.

You should be able to find an US equivalent on amazon.com.


Hope that helps,

Nice! Thanks
Now if we could get an AC vent in the bathroom and a speaker in master bed we'd be in good shape lol - what were they thinking?
