I recently had one of my drawer lock things break in the kitchen. Rather than spend five minutes looking through the parts manual and order a set, I actually made use of my 3D printer to make a replacement, rather than use it to make "useless" things.

I've posted it up on Thingiverse, if anyone needs it.

It fits all the drawers on our 2007 Itasca Horizon 40KD, so if another one breaks, I spend less than a nickel to print a new one.

Hope this helps someone else!

2012 Winnebago Access upgrades

I have a 2012 Winnebago Access Premium that overall has been very good. I have improved a few items.
The Lippert controller for the slide failed due to water intrusion into the relay box where it is mounted. I found that the wires inter the box on the top back side through a black corrugated sheeting that is split down the side that allowed water to inter the wire harness and leak down on to the controller. Also, the controller was mounted upside down (lettering and read out facing up) and the wires going into the top. I mounted the new controller, so the wires loop down below the controller and enter from the bottom. The wire harness/sheathing was sealed with caulking. Now if there is a leak in the wire harness the water will run out at the bottom of the loop in the relay box. I believe Winnebago installed the controller improperly as it was fast and easier but if trouble shooting was necessary would have been very difficult to read code.
These C class RV have a large storage section in the back under the bed. To help organize this space I have installed a shelve that suspends from the bed using all thread and tee nuts under the mattress. This allows me to put chairs on the shelve and boxes under.
Sorry no pictures as the MH is covered for our 7 month winter.
