Installing B&D SpaceSaver Coffee Maker

I bought a Black and Decker Spacesaver Coffee Maker for my Cherokee Grey Wolf and want to install it under the cabinet above the kitchen area but discovered that there is about a 1" void between 1/8" outer and inner plywood sheets. So has anyone come across this problem? Does anyone have a solution to this problem?

Funny you should mention that. We installed one over the sink in our TT last year, and did not realize that there are wires in that space between the inner and outer layers of the bottom of the cabinet. If we had tried to cut one of the wires, we never would have found it; however, we drilled right through one and when we took our first trip, we discovered we had no inside lights on that side of the TT. The microwave and the coffee pot worked great, though. The dealer had to fix the wires, so we figure the coffee for that trip cost about $240!!! Other than that, installing it was no problem and we love having it there. Knowing what we know now, we could have done it a little more carefully, and probably have avoided the wire. Good luck.

We are considering one but just haven't decided for sure yet.

WOW

You'd think the manufacturer would have foreseen owners install spacesaving devices, it just makes sense. I was going to drill the four holes using the template B&D supplies with the coffee maker and then inject expanding foam into the holes to build up the rigidity around the holes before mounting it. Hopefully I won't cut through any vital wiring. I'll probably do this tonight and wait a day before mounting the coffee maker just to make sure the foam has become solid. I'll let everyone know if this was a good or bad idea.

The inside panel is easy to remove. It's stapled in place. There may even be a couple screws at the ends. I remover mine to install under-cabinet lighting.
I used a pocket knife to pry the staples up a bit, then used pliers to pull the staples out. Later, I secured it in place with a staple gun.

You may want to install a piece of wood, between the inner and outer panels, as a backer. The trailer takes a lot of abuse on the highways and may shake the appliance loose.

Milzat is correct when I installed ours I also cut another piece of chipboard & put it between the two existing boards they are very thin. Our has the microwave over the spot we used to mount the B&D so had to remove it that way we could see the hidden wires etc.
I do have our installation posted in the Mods & Updates.
