Since the Picture server died here I thought I would repost some of my Mod threads.
The wife said she needed more kitchen counter space in our FS2300. Since we do most of our cooking outside I came up with this idea to utilize the stove top area. I took an old wooden TV tray and attached a couple of wooden blocks on the bottom so it fit snug into the burner grate.

Top view.

This is where I set up my electric coffee pot in the mornings which leaves the rest of the kitchen counter for staging the items we will take outside to cook breakfast.

Bottom view.


Previously when I posted this Mod, someone liked the idea and expanded on it by adding 4 blocks of wood to the bottom so they could set it on a tabel and use it for a cutting board.
Wife likes it alot.

Great stuff there TB- nothing like having some additional counter space, ey? Did you attach the cutting board to the grating, or do the blocks just fit into it?

Thanks!

Sean

The blocks just fit into the grate snugly so it doesn't shift around. You just lift it to remove it when you want to use the burners.

I did this mod this winter and have not used it yet, but it is the perfect fit and I am sure it will be useful. I was amazed at the size/fit of the tray over the stove-top. If you didn't know, you would think it was factory. These are the type of simple/practical mods that I love. Any ideas or new mods are always worth reading about.

That looks sharp. We picked up one of those white cutting boards with the no-slip padding, stays on great while traveling and really helps give us more counter space. Things like this should be standard on RVs.
