Peg Board Storage

I'm wondering about the peg board storage bay on the Ventana I've ordered. I've thought I might try to find some peg hooks that lock in place and use the board to make tool access easy. I'm curious what others have done with this space. My salesman said the space behind the peg board was used for plumbing. Will I need to remove the peg board to service something in there?
Thanks....Gary

Removed the peg board and replaced (using the same aluminium cadre) with a 3/4 inch wooden piece and installed my 32 inch Samsung LCE TV since electric and cable connection (for 3rd TV) are pre-installed on my coach and probably yours, in the compartment right besides.
Behind the pegboard is the Water tank etc

Covered the new section with Newmars grey pegboard back piece.

I assume Newmar places a pegboard if you have not chosen the optional outside TV

There is no routine maintenance that I know of that requires the peg board to be removed. For my model of Ventana if you opted for the outdoor entertainment option the entertainment system components would have been mounted in the peg board area.

I fabricated a easily removalable shelving system to store extra filters, fluids, chemicals, emergency markers and other stuff that I felt I needed easy/quick access to that mounted to the peg board. I also installed a 7# fire extinguisher in the area, my solar panel charge controller is also mounted in the area.

Here is a picture of the shelve:

If the water/holding tanks need service or replacing, that's how they are accessed.

Spike and I had the same idea.

Nice ideas! I was thinking tools but organizing the many lubricants and chemicals might make more sense.

Before adding a TV, determine if the location of the bay is near the center of the awning or near one end. If it is near one end of the awning, consider not installing a TV. The TV will need to be shaded from the sun. If the location of the bay is near the end of the awning, the sun will shine on the TV much of the day. This renders the TV useless. Been there done that.

Do agree that watching TV during the day (if sunshine is a problem) is an activity I do not do. Being parked with front to the North, the sun is no problem if I put it on after 2 PM.

I am currently using peg board hooks to store a few often used tools but I intend to convert the bay for a higher use - an LCD TV. Good tips above, especially about the awning.

Nice idea for the shelf. We have the same pegboard in our 04 DSDP and was curious as to how you have the shelf secured. Rout66 looks like his is secured by using plastic ties.

Yep! I just needed a way to hold it in place and easily remove it if need be.

Personally, I thought it gave the shelf a certain amount of class.

Well, they were UV resistant, and I believe a large communications company uses the exact type.
