When the sewer and water lines are connected and the water compartment door is closed there is a significant gap between the door and the sewer hose. I wanted to close this opening to keep out mice, etc. and to protect the water compartment in freezing weather.

I designed an aluminum "door" to bridge the gap. I had this made at a local machine shop. I added a short piece of Winnebago door seal. See the photos for details.

LK23, I hope you know you've stirred the creative "juices" of the honorable Canfield's....

Stand by for a new modification from John as well!!

I pulled myself a minor Canfield....Switched the rear and side cam images out of the Pioneer NAV/Radio and installed a 7" monitor in line with the left support pillar...Much easier to see and more conductive to safe driving practices....

Great mod LK23!!

Seriously, I'd be interested in purchasing one if you felt like making some. Very nicely done!

Sounds like you could start a new "cottage industy" on the sideline. I am sure you could sell to a bunch of us on this forum as it is a slick idea. Congrats!!
