Low Point Drain Access

The original access panel made it very difficult to reach the drain levers. I very carefully cut out the panel next to the original access panel and installed a new cover panel. It will make that part of winterizing much easier.

I am very happy to see how insulated that section is.

Looking at your pic, it looked like it was a bear to get at them.
how are you fastening the panel back on. Velcro or something along that line.

2020 24RLS. The original access panel would be perfect but the valves are plumbed back and low. It took some stomach laying, arm and wrist articulation to get to the closest one in particular.

I cut the hole by starting with a 1/2 inch bit and then cutting with a Swiss Army knife saw. I used a door from an antique sowing machine. We used the base years ago for a vanity and the door has been sitting unused. I cut the door 6" wide and left its length at 14". I only had to make the one cut. I drilled two pilot holes through the door and used two drywall screws to fasten it. It fits like a glove.
I didn't have to stain because it was already stained so it saved me a step. It is solid and out of site.
