Terry, the fridge lock looks good, and if the material that you drilled and tapped is not too thick, you could always epoxy a nut of the same threads right over the hole, to give you a little more holding power? Another check off the list! Rail!

Good Morning, MK, I like simple, you can't get any simpler. Randy, Thanks! Rail, I actually didn't have to drill and tap the reefer itself, where I thread in is where if you want to change the door opening from right to left, so there was already a hole with a nut behind. I am working on the front today where the propane tanks and batteries need to go.

Hi Terry! Refer lock looks great, I agree simple is good. Now don't put apple sauce in there and forget the lock!!!

Couple thoughts on the batteries and propane. Our new rig has a quick connect under the awning for my portable grill, very nice and handy. Also, are you including a battery disconnect/master switch?

Hi Lloyd, thanks.....I do like applesauce! When I wire in for the solar system I will have a master disconnect, (actually several) for the bats and the panels ect. The quick connect sounds like it would be handy too, didn't think about that .

Good Morning,


When you guys take your applesauce along try this. Peanut butter comes in "plastic screw top jars" now and when done with the peanut butter don't throw these away. Wash them out and reuse them for things that would normally come in glass. They don't break when they drop out of the fridge or your hand and they weigh less.


All things to think about when you are packing a RV. Nestle's chocolate for adding to milk. Also a plastic carton that will fit into the fridge door. Anything loose can be put in these. Those catsup and mustard packets you get from fast food places, sugar packets, anything small that would slide around is contained in these.


You all have kids who may use these products, just have them save them for you. Hot dogs would also fit into the chocolate contained and keep them sealed and contained so no spill of juices in fridge and no need of more baggies.


There are all sorts of containers that can be double use and not have to be purchased special. You know those big plastic jars of pretzels, great for storing citronella oils in your basement bays of clean rags, or transmission fluids or oils to keep from leaks when things topple over.


Now you will start to look at every items you buy and see if there is another use for it and it can save a bit of money too.


Things are looking great Terry. That rig is going to be a great deal of fun for you two. Congrats, Lynne

Terry,
great job on the door lock, will it clear the doors jut turning it sideways or do you have to completely remove the lock to open the doors? If you have to remove the lock, you might want to fabricate a lanyard so the lock doesn't get misplaced while you are setup and using the fridge.
Lynne,
Great insight on the plastic jars, you sure got into the Rv mentality really fast, GREAT JOB.
Frank

Hi Guys AND Gals, Lynne, those are great ideas on reusing items that you've bought for something else, I am always looking to recycle something, Thanks. Frank, It won't clear unless its all the way out, something I think is a good idea if it should loosen it still wouldn't allow the doors to swing. A lanyard is a good idea, (or make a couple of them ) Bap, thanks! I hope your TT's didn't get flooded .

Rebuild

Good Evening, Well been working on the outside front putting in the compartments for propane, batteries and the electrical compartment. I had cut off the rear bumper that would normally contain the stinky slinky, well I needed two things, a bottom support for the compartments and a place for ol'stinky, so guess what, I repurposed the bumper to the front and am building off it.

Terry,
Nice job, another idea, how about a shelf above the battery box for storage, like maybe a toolbox, or other items. Just a thought.
Frank

Good Morning, Frank, Thanks, not a bad idea, storage is always a plus anywhere we can get it. I still need an area to put the large parts of the dump tubes, elbows ect. that might be a good place to build a shelf to put a plastic bin with those items in it.
