Took the fridge out, there was mildew between the fridge and the wood shelf. Cleaned and sprayed with Lysol to kill the bacteria. The wood under the fridge and beside the pot drawer was smelly as well, treated too. The fridge was on an angle when turned it off and the condesate went the wrong way after out last 2 week trip.

Loaded up the bikes, DW shopped and stocked the pantry and packed clothes. I did the rest of the get ready things to head out in the Morning for Lake Huron.

I thought about mounting corner shelf beside the shirt closet to put my fan on.

But your idea works! I bet my bamboo cutting board would fit well on top of that drawer, and since we have the Hickory stain finish, it'll match close in color too.

That shirt closet is absolutely not needed with our big wardrobe slide. Right now it serves as the dirty clothes closet.

The DW get the same side and complains about no night stand. Tommorrow before we pull out I and going to cut a piece of plywood for the drawer, need to have somewhere for glasses and kobo etc.

Thank you for this!

Brian

Glenn had to add handles on his because I forgot them, I added flip up handles to Weezer's to gain a fraction of an inch more storage. LOL

You are right about what's under the step - DOH!

I am ALWAYS misplacing my glasses or fitbit when I sleep in the camper thus the "bedside" table idea

As I recall, the "table" board was 12"x18" - assuming our drawers are the same.

You will want to get a 1"x2"x20" to upt under the drawer so you do not bend the drawer roller trac.

For your fan solution, have you considered a "trucker's fan" mounted above your bed (I assume you have a 12V accessory outlet in the bedroom.)

Did you do slide out trays on both sides of the basement? This is ABSOLUTELY #1 on my RV bucket list when we come to visit Neil!

Drawer "Nightstand" mod

Reminder to all doing my drawer nightstand mod - don't forget the under-drawer brace. without it, I bet 5-7 pounds of constant pressure will warp the drawer roller trac.

Just Say'n

Got all paranoid about water leaks and installed this:

Neither Glenn's or Weezer's basements have the same size doors on both sides, so the drawer on theirs will only come out one side. Glenn's on the drivers side and Weezer's on the curb side. Mine will come out both sides.

Don't get your hopes up too high, it is a relatively labor intensive task. You also have to buy a complete garage door track assembly, 6 rollers, 20' of 1-1/2 x 1/8" angle, flip up handles, set screws, sheet of 1/2" primed plywood etc. plus clean out the entire basement, mount and replace everything.

Actually I think I've found a better solution. Here at the S&B I have a beautifully finished wooden Greek Column candle stand/plant stand that is heavy built, 2.5 ft tall, 6" square base and top, that is perfect to sit by the bed and put my little fan on.

I know, it's a weird quirk, but I need a light breeze/air blowing on my face to sleep, even if it's 20* outside. Goes well, I guess, with my *must* to have one foot out from under the covers or I can't breathe!
