Great ideas limb lips! I'm going out to our Surveyor right now to see how much room I have next to the microtooter for a gadget mod! And I'm going to look under Lloyd the drawers and in cabinets for more storage ideas. You guys have done a great job with your mods, thanks for the ideas.

Autocorrect on our IPad is frustrating. I have no idea how "Lloyd" got in there but nonetheless I will still be looking for storage ideas all over our trailer!

whats up there?

had wondered, is that space above the fridge filled with stuff(wires, tubing, ect?), or is it another example of unused space waiting to be unleashed, ....... the latter, mostly ...... as I was finishing the project I remembered, in our 25KS we don't need any more storage space, we have drawers and shelves already that are still empty, BUT,..... it just bugs me to know, there is space in the trailer that cannot be used until I open it up and make access to it possible,.... there are a few wires to deal with and the back section is the vent channel to the roof for the fridge, but it certainly is a nice area for something,..... just what I haven't figured out yet, but one of us will very soon, I'm sure,...... she's good at that,......

the front piece is a section of vinyl lattice from Lowes, will paint that to match later,......

ok, now it's completed and loaded,.... perfect place for our small fans, DW is cold-natured and short, and would never need them,...... so putting them up high where she can't get to them easily, is not a problem for her,....

the above pics are of our Micro Lite 25KS and the fridge is a Dometic, ... I would assume most have a similar space, but I could be wrong about that, ... the panel should be just stapled and should push out with a little force/small pry bar/screw driver/ect., ... once its removed you'll be able to see what you can do and can't do, ....

Just a word of caution.
x2. It's a great idea but I would be more comfortable using wire mold. You can get a 5 foot length of plastic wire mold for $10 at Ace Hardware. And wire mold is easy to open up to access the wiring if needed.

Some found space. Under couch, under pantry/behind tub plumbing (removable insert), added drawers in space over the water heater.
