Looks the same as the CW one. Probably cheaper on Amazon.

Question about the towel rack

Vacationlovers, where did you place the tension towel rack? In the toilet section of the bathroom. Also, I'mconsidering putting a tension shower caddy in the shower. The area for placing shampoo and the like is ridiculously small.

Thoughts?
Advice?

Still Learning Here

I've posted in this thread before...we traded in our 2007 FR Lexington for the 2015 FR3 30DS.

1. I've seen reference in this thread to "double-sided automotive tape" and am wondering where the best place to get it might be? O'Reilly's or Auto Zone? Is it really strong enough to support a couple of cleats and a shelf?

2. What do ya'll do about more light sockets in the front of the coach? Is there only enough juice to power just 2 or 3? I purchased one of those As Seen On TV multiple plug adapters and so far, I plan to run about a 20' extension cord from over the kitchen sink to somewhere behind the passenger seat. I plan to use hook and loop to anchor the cord in place so I can at least put a fan at the front of the coach [mine doesn't have power vents].

3. Is it possible to use a residential hand held shower head in this.

As always thanks for the advice, support and updates.

Lexi2007,

We put the towel rack in the corner (next to the bathroom door hinge). If you look closely at the first photo, you can see the holes in the wall where the original towel hook had been.

I have attached another photo, taken from the hallway, that might give you a better view.

Lexi2007 did you find the plug under the dash on the passenger side? I know I missed it for awhile. I also didn't know there was under the bed on the door side of the bed which is now our phone charging station.

I found the plug! It was there all the time. Problem solved. I'm putting together our tension towel rack holder and installing it today. Woo Hoo

I've done quite few mods to our rig. Here are some pics of the shelves that I installed.

I picked up the shelving material at Lowe's, and it matches the existing cabinets nicely. I cut all of the pieces to size on my table saw.

Angle supports added from what was laying around - not sure needed.
Slid paneling under framing on floor prior to sawing the floor framing out.

I have a 2015 FR3 30DS and want to change from 30 amp to 50 amp and add an Atwood 18k BTU that FR says is on the unit (which was not on the unit, only a Dometic 15k BTU). I already used the roof holes for 3 Maxx Fan Remote fans so I will have to sacrifice the BR Maxx Air fan for another A/C. How did you change from 30 to 50 amps. I always had 50 amps on my larger units but we went down in size and do not want to go down in amps. Any pics or diagrams available. Thanks.

I believe most just run a 20 amp extension cord to just that AC unit. Then when camping, you can use the 30 amp and 20 amp that most campgrounds offer. Or use a dog bone like this: http://www.amazon.com/Conntek-Adatpe.../dp/B002MGSNNQ.

shelves

your shelves all look great. You said you got the materials at Lowes, but what did you use to mount the shelves inside each space? Thanks

Thank you for the kind words. I used the remnant material from the shelves to cut custom mounting brackets, and then screwed them to the inside of the cabinet. I then wood screwed the shelves to the mounting brackets. Here are a couple of photos to illustrate what I did.

Thanks for your compliment on the shelves. I am actually camping right now and am away from my records. When I return home next week I will find that info and send it to you. I can tell you that I used metal strips that are sometimes called shelf standards. They are used with matching adjustable metal clips that lock into the standards. I found a company on the internet that has a wide assortment in various lengths and colors with matching screws. Their product is also thinner than what you buy locally and look really nice. I will let you know the name of the company.

Shelf Standards

The name of the company that carried the shelf standards was Woodworker's Supply. (Catalog No. 895-859). You will also see matching shelf clips and matching screws on their website. Hope this helps.

Thanks to all for your assistance in adding shelves in the FR3. With your guidance and photos I was able to convert the coat closet into a pantry and add a shelf in the bathroom. I live in a small town so my local Lowes did not have the premade shelves in the color that matched, so I had to get raw wood and stain, but, I think it still came out great. See photos.
