Hmm, a side hinged door might work! I wouldn't have thought of that.

I do have to say- this was one of my cheapest projects. Clearly the door is reused, so were the drawer slides, and the hinges were repurposed from a desk. The only money I have into this was the project piece of MDF.

Why not just move the front of the drawer slide up about 1/4" and leave the rear of the slides alone? Much easier and the drawer would have a tendency to close automatically.

Will replace the zip ties with a hose clamp as soon as I go to Lowes, etc. while we're down here. Whole new ballgame when we get home!

The feet just flip down. I put mine at the mid point when I store the steps. The height of the steps is also adjustable. Easy is, easy out

The discussion was about figuring out how to get water for your coffee pot. If you had an outside kitchen, you'd have the faucet for the sink right there.

What did you do to your camper today?

Finally installed my drinking water faucet and filters.

Our hot water tank low point drain cap was leaking while camping in Savannah area, so I stopped by the local Lowe's and bought a pair of 1/2" plastic stop valves, like someone posted here previously, and just installed them a few mins ago. Problem solved, and will be easier to drain in future if I ever need to
