DW did not care for the Corian cutting board/sink cover that came with our Winnebago ERA 70C, so I used a flush trim router bit to cut down a bamboo cutting board to fit.

I also added a Fiamma Carry Bike 200DJ for our bikes.

This weekend I had a garage sale. I should have put a NOT for Sale sign on the Class B. Had a few people ask about it.

Replaced the older Magnatek converter with a Progressive Dynamics converter for better battery charging management. Removed part of the sub-floor in the process to check for a leak and fix a squeek in the floor that drove me nuts. Started to prep it for travel this season, about 12K miles in all.

There’s a very a propos existing thread titled “Storing hoses cords and stinky BBQs on a Sprinter B” but it’s an older thread and this forum will not allow me to reply to it. For that reason, I’m going to log this tip as “something I did for my Class B today” – I finally adapted a grill that can be carried inside without making a mess.

It’s the UCO Flat Pack Grill, which apparently just came out within the past couple of months (if I'm understanding correctly), or maybe it just reached its tipping point within the past few months, because when I searched for something like this previously, I didn't find anything.

Like many other owners, I was bedeviled by the "stinky grill" predicament, given that our Class B has no outside storage capacity. Any grill stored inside has to be really small and wrapped up really well. The UCO is not sold with a storage case, but I fabricated one out of tarp material. If, for instance, I'm boondocking and have limited water supply and cannot wash the grill thoroughly, I have the option of sealing it in a plastic bag before slipping it back into its DIY tarp envelope. Stinky greasy problem solved.

Here's a blog post that further explains all of this:

THE UCO FLAT PACK GRILL: PRODUCT REVIEW AND CUSTOM CASE DESIGN

And here's a pic of the case I made:

Loaded up the guys and went to Tampa for a Lightning game. Stayed at a hotel 5 miles away and used Uber to and from the game. The RV is somewhat nimble, but not in downtown Tampa traffic. Traveling on the road was a blast.

Found a perfect spot for the paper towel roll. I added paper towel holder under the sink. It came with 1" screws, I used some 3/4" screws so it would not drive into the underside of the counter top.

Now that is an excellent idea, especially for those of us Class B owners who are religious about exploiting every cubic inch of space.

Added two small shelves (actually they are desk top file organizers IN/OUT boxes)


Added a silverware drawer behind an unused panel:

When I turned on the water pump there was no water at the faucets and water was pouring out from under the van. It was a pretty serious leak and we all know they're hard to track down. I had to do a lot of digging to find out that it was only a pipe fitting that had come undone. A new clamp was all it took. I also discovered that the propane water heater had developed a crack in the tank. I replaced it with an electric/propane one. I hate water leaks!

How is the bike rack working out? I am thinking about getting one of those. That way I could also have a cargo carrier to put a generator on and still take our bikes.

Cutting board

Watch that cutting board closely. We have a 70c and I put a big pot of water on the large burner, cranked it on to high, and scorched the side of the corian cover. Love the bike rack.

Big fan of the Fiamma Carry Bike 200DJ, it holds the bikes very firmly, but is easy to load once you get it adjusted for your bike(s). I also like that it raises the bikes above the spare tire, up out of the way, and does not block the taillights.

My only real complaints are 1. It's fairly expensive (but worth every penny) and 2. You have to remember it hangs out past the door edge, right at head/neck height so be careful when loading/unloading the cargo area and when closing the door, make sure you are on the outside of the door before you swing it closed or you'll club yourself in the back of the head (don't ask me how I know that)

Typically, when we are cooking the cutting board is removed already, but if not, I'll keep an eye on it.

In the spirit of the thread, I'll add that I moved the spring clips and strap for the table from the back of the closet to the forward wall which makes storing and getting the table out of the closet so much easier.

Hi,

installed two Lithium 50 AH batteries to replace two 55 AH AGMs. The AGMs are now 5 years old and not holding the charge like they used too so figured I better replace them sooner rather than later.

Had such a bad experience with the company I purchased the Lithiums from that I don't want to mention their name nor will they get future business from me. If I see anyone recommending purchasing from this company, that is when I will provide a post with my experience with them.

After all that went on, the batteries themselves are working great.

Cheers,

Steve
