I also started work on a prototype setup for the rear shelf, which will go beneath the rear window cover.

Let's assume that the window behind the plywood is a wall. My shelf is 1/2" plywood, and as you can see, I routed out a portion so that a piece of 1/8" thick plywood will sit in there and the plywood will still be flush with the wall.

When the shelf is pulled into the upright position, the hinged piece of 1/8" thick plywood will automatically fall down into this position.

The only hardware needed is a hinge, as gravity will do the rest. When putting the shelf back into the down position, all I need to do is push the 1/8" plywood back up into position, and the 1/2" plywood shelf will fold down easily.

I do plan on using one of these towards each end of the shelf, so between the 2 of them, they should hold the shelf nicely, and out of the way when not in use.

Where does all the equipment required to "put on her face" go when the table is folded down. Sounds like a lot of work to move it to and from the shelf everyday.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

That's actually a good question. Currently, almost none of her "put your face on" items are on the counter. Almost everything is in a small cabinet behind a mirror above the sink area.

Using a drawer to the left of where the shelf will be will hold her "stuff". She doesn't use much makeup, so it won't take up much space.

Had a family day yesterday with the son, and it was great. It's always a good time when family visits.

Anywhooooooo.......

Went to the close Lowes store, 3 miles, instead of the 8 miles to the Depot, and looked for hinges.

I ended up buying a pair of these to use with the shelf at the rear of the coach. They are 1 - 1/16" and are 30 inches long. Got 2 of them.

Yes, we are decorated for Valentines day.........

This is what I was confronted with. The 2 with the red arrows were the same width, but different lengths.

The one at the bottom was 12" long, and the one at the top was 30" long.

Prices? $6.48 for 12", and $7.98 for the 30" one. 2.5 times longer for a mere $1.50. Whoda thunk?

Yes, they are identical, except for the length. Same width, same thickness, same finish - everything, including the same manufacturer. Go figure.

I think we may have completed our list of kitchen appliances that are on our "must have" list. This is for fulltiming use.

Our first is a 3 burner cooktop, powered by propane.

We also have a convection oven which doubles as a toaster. There is a newer version of the one we have, which also serves as an oven, a toaster, a dehydrator, and an air fryer. There are about 13 different settings on the upgraded one, and I must say "I want one"!

In addition, we use a microwave frequently for reheating small amounts of food.

We also use an Instant Pot frequently.

We have a small portable blender, used daily, as well as a bread making machine that we use at least twice a week, plus at times making pizza dough, or dough for rolls, buns, or bagels, which get made in the portable electric oven.

We also use a Keurig coffee maker on a daily basis.

Our frying pan is of the non-stick variety, along with a few T304 surgical stainless steel pots for cooking things like pasta and veggies.

Along with that is my newest best friend - a vacuum food saver. I have discovered that most foods actually last muuuuuch longer in a vacuum sealed bag than food that is stored without vacuum packaging. In some cases, food that would have gone bad in 1 month have lasted 4 - 6 months! Yay!

As a result, I have created a few cardboard replicas of some of these items, so I know where and how they will fit.

Wahoo!
