The frig fans are two 3 inch computer fans. I am in the process of upgrading to a 51/2 inch fan only because the current fans are a little load. New fan is due in the mail this week and I have built a duct so it will blow air in the same location. I will have pictures when done.

The pantry takes advantage of the full depth of the cupboard. I build a ladder system and slid it into the space. Made it easier rather than trying to mount the slides in the tiny space.
With regard to the cord reel..... What year and model of your coach?? Mine looks different than yours, I believe.

Boowho??

I have a 2008 390QS. There are different size reels. Perhaps the horizontal reel would fit. The reel can also be turned on its side.

Silver, could you let us know the maker and model number of the power cord reel?

Silver- Thanks for all this information. I like the pantry change and will look into something like that when I get back home in the fall. Great work!

Great idea and a truly great wife. Just a warning I thought under the bed would be a good place to keep pistol cases. Not. It moves around and one case took a major beating.

Phil,
If you get some self stick Velcro and put pieces of the part with the hooks on it (not the fuzzy side), it will hook into the carpet and stop the sliding around.

Good idea Tom. When I was in NY I had put my pistols in that space. The one case got torn up pretty bad when the slide was opened and closed.

I'm sad to find out my outside TV is not the 3rd tv on my switcher. How hard is it to run VGA cables to my outside TV?
