Hi Johnfrob


That's a man cave.
Btw. I got busted today. We were loading up today and the locking bay latch broke. I have spares in my man locker. Oh well. At least she smiled.

Compartments

Sorry guys but I cannot call my Wife the DW...as I do all the dishes in our home..

The front set of compartments in our Endeavor are filled with cleaning supplies for the RV...also have a 6ft fiberglass step ladder so that I can clean windows and make repairs. Also jumper cables, extension cords and such.

She has the compartments on her side and my side is filled with supplies such as cleaners, towels, paper towels and such. Plumbing supplies such as gloves, faceshield, and other items are in the same compartment as the drain and fill.

With 36 ft for just the two of us there is plenty of room.

I'm not a fan of plastic bins. I only have a couple. I like to use the ceiling, and the walls to hang things.

Thanks!!

I have a Cardinal 5'er and the separators are 3/8" felt covered plywood. All of the hooks, baskets and trays are bolted thru with washers and nylok nuts.

The overhead angles that hold the folding table is nothing more than 1/8" x 2" wide custom bent aluminum. A 4" vise and a 4# lead hammer makes a good bender.

The hooks and stuff are fastened to the aluminum floor studs (overhead) with self-tapping screws.

What's not pictured is the baskets I have mounted in the LP cabinet that holds a 4 pack of little bottles for the grill.

AND that bar connecting the front jacks is GONE. I got tired of hitting my head and installed a set of separate motors.

Hope that helps.

ok, so my shopping list now includes:

hooks, baskets and trays
bolts, washers, and nylok nuts.
self-tapping screws.

Even though we have 200 feet of storage or so and that sliding tray - the tray is too much trouble to move most of the time... and so tried to organize with my bins,
It's still a mess, especially fighting that 50 amp cord into there

So far, I've left the front battery/generator compartment empty -- guess I can put some of the less used stuff up there, just that it's not sealed so will have to correct that...

Thanks !

We have stored everything in roughnecked bins of different depth by same size and stack them neatly and labeled. I store all trailer setup and parts in front and setup hose and cables on curb side for easy access. Store the 50amp in a bin and pull it out when required. When on 30amp available I use the other 30amp cord only. Blockings are in a bin in the truck box and taken out when setting up.

I know this is a different subject but they do go in the storage compartment . Anyone else use the lynx level blocks personally I love them they don't slide in wet grass at all. I use to use wood blocks for under the tires and had some bad experiences with them. Also there alot lighter and they are very durable in have a 39 footer and weight is not a problem for them.
