I added handles to the inside of my bathroom door today too.

Door hack to prevent breaking out window

I added this strap to my exit door to prevent it from flying back in strong wind and breaking the front window. I believe 4 folks have had that happen. I am rather short, so this is not in my way when I get in or out. I used a horse tie-down strap from the feed store. It had a bit of bungee cord at one end.

Added runners to drawer - works just like home! Made a new drawer with thicker bottom to accept screws and dividers for my specific implements. Wanted this since day one. 22" guides juuust work. You can juuust reach to screw them down in the back, beyond the recess where the original tray sat.

Great job! That has always been one thing that's annoyed me.

The usual 500-page RV dealer Accessories catalogs have a range of small products, among them a shower head hose on/off insert. Use any shower head afterwards.

The local big box may have it.

The catalogs are always worth having. The Sears Wish Book of the present era. The bigger the RV dealer the more likely it’s free. Worth a few bucks. Keep a sheet of lined paper and record page number, item, and price (high markup). If nothing else one may be inspired to fabricate or substitute any of a number of “conveniences”.

Add to the sheet anything of interest. Research on this or other forums (sailing, for instance). Consider sheet and catalog as basic reference for the subject of this thread. Go page by page, front to back. Not everything has one use, and not everything is in a section YOU expect.

After seeing Gail Miller’s guard to protect door in case of high winds I liked idea but tried a different approach. I used a rubber retainer installed in such a way we can use door without ducking. I drilled only one new hole adjacent to existing hole in door window frame. We disconnect clasp fastener if/when we use standard hook to keep door open all the way.

Valley Vent Fan

Very new to this having bought new BC two weeks ago. Going over lots of things this w/e & wondered why hatch for vent fan in galley doesn’t seem to shut tightly. Wonder if threads on my opening control are stripped....I turn it counterclockwise to open but when I close it the knob begins to ratchet without adding tension as hatch closes. Is this normal or do I need to replace the black plastic screw knob that opens/closes vent. No water leaks from rain yet but it just doesn’t “feel good” when I close hatch.
Thanks for any insight you might have, Robert

The lowering sound / action you're describing is normal. Mine does the same as many other ceiling vents I have operated.

30 lb Propane Tank Installation on Basecamp

Hello Basecampers,
For your information I have attached some pictures showing a 30 lb (from original 20 lb) propane tank upgrade.
I have removed the black cover and added a rain shield for the upper vent for your information (see my posts regarding refrigerator performance while on propane for more information)
Regards,
RocIngersol
