8280WS Rockwood Mod

I have added 2 outlet behind the recliners in our 8280WS, FR forgot to have a place to plug in the lamp. I used surface mount box and hooked them up to the GFI at the sink. Sorry I tried to up load a photos and no luck.

Good idea. We use an extension cord to a plug mounted on the cabinet to the left of the rocker.
Might just do what you did. I really don't like extension cords.

Just curious, can you open your fridge when the slide is in on the 8280WS? I never had the chance to look at that model. Thanks.

Nice job F150K.

I've something to pass along. We like to read while sitting in the recliners but found that the lighting wasn't very good. We ditched the table lamp and replaced it with a swing arm floor lamp...much better lighting.

Good idea on the lamp! That end table one is a bit whimpy.
And don't you just luv those recliners! I've got a bad back, and it appreciates the comfort.
