Everything needs to trimmed later. Do you think this Reefer will grow up to fit the hole?
LOL - perhaps - do you have miracle grow? If it works on the fridge you could fill the tub with it.

Hi Gordon, that little reefer has been thru alot and it keeps on ticking, it was built into my tool box at work, (yup I have a very large tool box setup), and on the counters of both my shops to keep creamers cold for customers coffee ect. I don't know how old it is. The bathroom is small but we don't require much, the "tub" is big enough to take a shower in so that's ok. Well enough for one day, Have a good night all.

I had a small tub like that in my class A . It was perfect for doing laundry with a (new) plunger.

Terry,
You are funny, you might want to build a shelf for that little fridge in the garage, it is always handy to have extra fridge space. We have one of those 12v/110v combination ones in the front compartment for the drinks when we are sitting out under the awning, we can also use it as a freezer if we want to. I agree with trim it later, the goal now is to finish hat you need to so you can use it, the trim you can do anytime, although, I know that you won't b able to leave it long without the trim done.
Frank

We all seem to have a little fridge like that. I bought one years ago when I was staying in motels to manage construction projects. I would fill the fridge with stuff for lunches, cold drinks, etc. Now that I am no longer on the road it sits downstairs and is used to keep drinks cold.

I have an old Fridgedare in the garage for a beer fridge but it has not been run for several years, actually since it came out of the basement and was placed in the garage. I have to reorganize the garage obviously. I have been threatening to do some air brushing on it but other tasks seem to have a higher priority.

I had a 5er in the 70's that had a tub. It was small but it seemed to be alright. I always showered as I had to haul water so filling a tub with enough water to bath was problematic. Shower = 1 pail, bath = 5 - 10 pails.

I somewhat agree with Frank about the possibility of taking the small fridge along as an auxliary cool container. We found that the evaporative fridge in the 5er was large enough if we managed it and now the residential fridge has lots of space. With the bikes in the garage space quickly becomes a premium. A trip or two will sort issues like that out quickly. Nice to have it as an option.

Good Morning, Popeye, I can just see you doing laundry in the bathtub, . Frank, Yup, that little Reefer is going somewhere, just haven't figured out quite where yet. Once the big stuff is done then I can get into the trim "mode", right now its kinda the rough in mode. Haven't got on like usually do, I've been starting at 6:00 am and I get done around 8 pm or so, there are some breaks in between, (more than I like). Today the new gasket and shroud for the AC is coming, hope to get it up on the roof tonight when all the help gets home, I haven't figured how to get it up alone yet. Also the new antenna is coming today so I should be able to get alot of roof stuff done shortly. I need to go tomorrow and help the person that we flipped his axles on his TH, he has a sidecar that goes on his motorcycle, needs it put on so we can install his wheelchock. Hi Gordon, slipped in there while I was typing.

I got the new AC on my old rig using half of a long aluminum ext ladder.
Just leaned it up on the roof and pulled the AC up on the "rails" with a piece of rope. I had a friend to spot it as far as she could reach but nobody had to lift anything !!

Washing the clothes in the tub was the best option while extended boondocking. Hey , it's not like I was in there stomping them like a bunch of grapes while taking a shower. Now THAT would have been a you tube moment!

Looking good Terry. Wont be long now.

That spare fridge reminded me I have all the parts for a kegerator. Now where to put that in a coach. Hmmmmm. All in the name of being environmentally friendly of course. All the bottles saved ya know.
