Mine aren't adjustable either, unfortunately. The datasheet says that model is supposed to be, but I think that only applies to the models that step down to 12V, not straight across.

Really too bad that your Synology NAS is so fussy. 12V +/-5% ? That's ridiculous.

(And sorry about my confusion, I just assumed you were using DC-DC converters to step down from a higher V battery bank, like my 24V.)

Iíve been wanting to do this for a while and finally got all of the pieces needed. I added under-cabinet lighting to the nightstand to use instead of the super bright overhead one. Itís wired into a new switch next to the USB ports and is 3000K for softer, warmer light at night.

For a solution to utilize the bumper for storage, I drew up a larger end cap and 3D printed it. Fits nicely! Cylinder magnets keep it quite smartly closed.
I realize this was almost two years ago but do you stil have the specs for the print?

Frosted door windows gone!

I replaced both opaque windows in the entry doors with a clear glass unit that has a pull down black-out shade. AP Products 015-201512. The new ones are an exact fit as the opening is an industry standard. Screws hold the frames securely and the outer one has weatherstripping attached. The factory ones have a snap together frame that uses their release gizmos (16 of 'em) or you can start from the inside and pry out on the frame and that will break the grippers. Then clean off the sealant on the outside and install the new SEE-THROUGH unit. The pull down shade does not appear to be weather proof so I would not leave the door open in the rain. Got mine from Amazon. Link:
