Making mounts for hose storage?  Hope the departure angle doesn't catch it on dips going into service stations, whatever is going on.

The stinky slinky is all but done. I chose the square fence post because it's 4 3/4 by 4 3/4. It will hold all my fittings and 1 slinky.   heartshower   heartshower

This was the reason for the bigger fence post, EVERYTHING fits in side the post, with a small modification.

I also moved the 7 way plug, got tired of bending over.

By the way, this is our place in Coarsegold we are selling. Nice set up to much work. There is another place opposite ours, 1600 sq. ft.

Billy,

As my better half (that maid service thing, ha) keeps reminding me: you would have more time to work on the house if you would leave the MH the way PC made it.

I got around the move by carving in stone that there was no way I was moving in-state.  So far the obvious bluff is working.  STILL, I could like to live in the hills before checking out.

It appraised for 345k about 4 month ago, make me an offer.    (WH)   (WH)  It is a lot to take care of, I finally have a line on some good people to work around here.

Billy:

I have been to California a few times for work and vacation. It is a lovely state to visit....I would have a hard time leaving our rolling hills and four seasons. I am not sure I could take having close neighbors..I live on a gentlemans farm with 200 acres surrounding my home.. My neighbors are cows and deer and lots of field and trees. It probably would look nice to me during our winter.  I hope all works out for you.

DJM, what ever works best. Sounds like a beautiful place. I like the idea of cows, must have some good conversations? I did with my dogs.

Title: Shelves
Post by: Frank on July 01, 2011, 02:43:29 pm
Ron, what was the depth of the shelve you put over the co-piolet seat?
I'm down to 13" & still can't get it in the opening.

Frank, just ran across this post Not sure but if it is a double door you can remove the "post" in the center. There are two screws at the top and botom

If you are discussing this shelf, it is a standard 11.25" pre-finished shelf purchased from Home Depot.
I made a pattern out of cardboard so the shelf follows the contour of the aerodynamic cap and non-perpendicular cabinet wall to the right.

Billy,
     What kind of cap did you put on the outside end og the post? When I did this for my 5th wheel, I added a snap clip on each side of the cap to hold it on. I'm planning to add 2 of these, one for the hose and the other to hold ham radio antennas.

The post is a 4-3/4" vinyl fence post from lowes. They have end for-um. I think the caps r for 4" and u will need an adaptor for the 4-3/4 caps. Billy
