Default 2019 'Bird Projects

I was gently nudged (Mike!) at WOG to share pics of projects done this year. So this isn't bragging, just sharing ideas that may interest other WOGgers. Sorry about the picture rotations. . . .
#1 Four LifeLine AGM batteries and all new cables/connectors. The Load monitor shunt and associated electronics are in the background.
#2 Slide Tray and power cord reel
#3 Wet Bay redo. All parts, tubing, connectors are new.
#4 Stainless Steel latch for Samsung fridge in open position
#5 Fridge latch closed; Simple snap action secures the doors.

Nice projects!
May I ask who you bought your slide tray through?

Thanks Bruce and Randy. Love the 40 ft. hobby! Bought the tray from someone at the Saturday swap BATB last year. Works great. Had to go with the open style tool box with tray vs. pull-out drawers, but holds a lot and the nested box above it is great for sorted whatevers. And, it was on sale!

I was looking at a tray at WOG and was considering grabbing it for my M380 but it was slightly too wide. I need one @ 3'x6' if anyone has one they're not using.

Hummm... Maybe we should have our swap meets earlier in our rallies so that we have time, and friends around, for the install.

I also really like the little water meter for changing the water filters out. Nice.

Good job & a good different idea, most are for the pull out drawers.
Love the 40 ft. hobby!

Someone likely bought it at Bontragers when they were at the Shipshewana Rally. I think they are the perfect size for 4 GC Batteries. Stainless. I have a couple bought for an old coach that I may never use now.

Sitting here looking through schematics trying to remember everything Randy put out at WOG on handling/ride improvement. Dang diagrams are so hard to read sometimes, still haven't found the drive dump valves on the diagram. LOL

The tray,or Joey bed has a plywood bottom,all you have to do to make it smaller is to saw the plywood to the size required,or add a new piece of plywood to make it bigger.
