Any AF 865 camper owners?

Where to put the garbage can dilemma in these campers-solved! The 865 has no spot to put a garbage can (what was Northwoods thinking) other than in the closet or bathroom!
So I decided to remove the 4 screws that holds the cabinet cover & shelves under the sink (where the hot water tank is. Low & behold plenty of room between the tank & the sliding drawers! So I took off an 1/8" (no more & do not cut into the trim piece) off the left side of the cabinet cover with my table saw.
I then cut a piano hinge to length & installed it on the right side of the cabinet cover & then drilled & screwed it all to the cabinet side. I now have a cabinet that opens for a garbage can! I also installed a new pex 90' fitting (male pipe to female pipe swival) to move 1 water line out of the way (drain tank 1st). I cut off the factory screws & reinstalled to give it a factory look, also use velcro & an old brass key pushed into the top hole to lock it in place when traveling. Has worked great, sorry no pics. Solved our problem with the 865 TC
Arctic Fox could have done this so easily at the factory! Sorry for the long post.
