Thanks!
Are you talking about something like this?


Factory shelf



New cabinet added

Wow, that's a great match! Where did you find the cabinet/door, and what was it called? Thanks,

I built the cabinet to fit using material I ordered from Forest River. The door is a standard size that they make. There was not a door available in the height I needed that would match the width of the closet door below, so I had to use one that was smaller. I left a pocket space to the right of the cabinet, and this is where we store the bunk curtain when it is open. This helps keep it out of the way. The rear area has two shelves for the kids stuff, with plastic bins that we already had. The T.V. is tucked into the rear most area next to the front wall.

If you purchase a Tornado, attach it to a garden hose before installing to see how it works. I did that and it didn't deliver as much water as I'd like so I enlarged the holes at the end of the nozzle. I used a 1/8" drill bit.

Have a good day.

Hey Mike...

I just purchased one yesterday and ran it with the garden hose like you suggested and I noticed that it doesn't spin all that great. Is that essentially why you drilled bigger holes in it? Did you drill out the side holes too or just the end ones on the tip of the "sprinkler". Thanks

That Tornado Tank Rinser sounds great. My tank is a 25 gal. and seems to be made of thin hard plastic. Will the screws hold and not strip out? Thanks

Well....that remains to be seen i guess. From what i can tell, there's no pressure there at the tank or on the tornado itself, unless the remote connection is connected in a fashion that it causes pressure (sharp turns, kinks, whatever). If it's installed without the remote connection setup, then i can see where the hose being connected and disconnected all the time probably could cause some wear there. However, if the remote water connection hose is installed with it and it never gets removed (really no reason to unless you get a leak from the hose itself), then i couldn't imagine why the screws would strip out unless for some reason something gets snagged during transport. I guess it all boils down to how its installed and routed. I haven't read any posts yet of anyone having serious issues stemming from the installation of a tornado.
