Added drawer in kitchen

I just finished adding a drawer in the kitchen of our 33.3. I made a 14” wide X 12” long X 4” deep drawer to connect to the false drawer front. I also added wooden supports to the back end of the drawer slides to make it stronger.

Any problem with the drawer or supports clearing the sink plumbing lines, especially that pesky drain pipe that moves in and out with the slide??

The back of drawer doesn't touch the drain line, but is VERY CLOSE.
If I had it to do over, I would make the drawer 11" long instead of 12".
But , 12" drawer slides were the shortest I could find for the new drawer.

The supports that I put to help hold the boards that connect to the back ends of the 3 upper drawer slides, may come in contact with the drain line as it moves around when the slide moves in & out, but I don't think so.
I will need to check it out when the slide operates, but I think it will be ok.

I am anxious to get my sofa and dinette back from the upholstery shop. I think the new cloth fabric will look great.

After that is finished, I will be replacing the basement flooring with 1/2" thick (4' X 8' sheets) Coosa Board. It will be a challenge, but it will make the flooring rock solid. This stuff is lightweight, and very strong. It will never soak up any water.

Very nice. You have some nice upgrades going on! Great work.

My business has been in forced lockdown for quite a while and now I am bored and can't work on the Palazzo until more supplies are delivered for the basement flooring. I can't wait to get out in my RV.


Lately, to keep busy I have been making toys for my youngest granddaughter, I made a doll bed for her 2nd birthday. I dropped it off yesterday, I also have been working on a child's rocking chair. I made it big enough so she can use it for many years to come.

That's very nice! I'm amazed how well you were able to match the stain and finish.

Did I read that right? They put a false drawer front there, but didn't actually install a drawer where there was room for one??

Yes , down near the floor is just a false drawer front that snaps in place just like the panel under the refrigerator. This drawer front looks like the other drawer fronts on the working drawers above it. I just made a drawer & installed drawer slides.

Pesky sink drain hose

Great upgrade! You mentioned “pesky sewer hose” and got my attention! I just bought a Thor Chateau, 28Z . The hose from the kitchen sink is a ticking time bomb. On my rig it is a ‘Tiger Flex 1.5” IPS’ polyurethane hose and it is under extreme stress, as it is being forced to assume a very tight bend. I am trying to find a more flexible hose and possibly reroute some supply lines and power cables that interfere with the movement of said hose when the slide moves. Have you any suggestions regarding that ‘pesky hose’? Thanks!

No ideas for a different hose type, but surely there is something different available.
