I just took the blank faces off several cabinets and actually found space for a 28"X8" shelf and a 18"X10" draw. Modding is good!!

Do you have a subwoofer in the cabinet also ? If so, how did/do you protect it?

Is it permanently mounted or can you remove it?

What was the degree of difficulty?

You've got me wanting to put my space heater in that cabinet .
Cabinet did have a shelf, and just moved sub woofer, I bolted my stove down, and as I remade most of the face frame, raised floor, redid inside back and sides, built my doors, I found it more time consuming then hard......I have a wood shop here at home.....

What Is Wrong With Me?!

Y'all have some great mods. I love the extra light switches. One thing I am curious about is the tubing/pipe behind the toilet. I read to put a cutoff valve behind the toilet in case of something. Something could happen, get stuck open and fill up the black tank, I can't remember. Is this a real concern or am I borrowing trouble?


On never mind, I see Herk did the cutoff valve. That's way fancier that what I was thinking of.

My thought was that if the flush valve got stuck open, it might take too long to run outside and shut off the water (especially if I was not particularly dressed for such a sprint). It also makes servicing and washing the Hopper easier without removing water from the whole camper.

Since I needed to repair the flush valve anyway, I installed the shutoff and the wash down sprayer at the same time.

As you can see from my thread, I did NOT use the Thetford flush valve "nipple" for the wash down sprayer because that required me to hold the flush valve open while spraying and reduced the water pressure to the spray head. This caused me to use way more water boondocking than I wanted. By adding a "T" above the main shutoff, I can use full system pressure when cleaning up; then just one flush to dump the bowl.

I added the wand shut off in case the spray head or hose developed a leak. That way we cold still use the Hopper until it could be repaired.

Note that I left the Sharkbite disassembly tool on the first pipe fitting to remove since it is a tight fit between the Hopper and the wall.
