Storage Areas

Storage areas should be organized so that the equipment is protected during travel yet is easily accessible for daily use.  If you have something in your storage area that is 'buried' or is trashed around in travel it is of little value.   The water closet below has some modifications that I've made including the filter and pressure accumulator.  I've also added a satellite connection for the additional satellite dish.  If the unit mounted dish doesn't have a clear view of the sky then the external dish can be hooked up and used.  It is on a 50-100 ft cable as needed and can be placed out away from the trees that block the view.  There are four lengths of hose stored here also along with the water pressure regulator, and other hose fittings.  The small center coiled hose is the intake for winterization.  The Coachmen also comes with an outside shower and a pump switch so you don't have to run around into the vehicle to turn on the water pump.

The electrical storage items include a 30 ft. 50 AMP extension cord, a 30 ft. 30 AMP extension cord, and a 100 ft. 15 AMP extension cord.  Also here are the appropriate adapters to get me connected to the service available at the site.

If necessary a shower mat, or kitchen work mat that is designed so fluids will run under it can be cut to size and used in the storage areas.  If there is a leak the stuff you've got isn't sitting in a wet area.  I do not recommend carpeting in these storage areas (even though it looks nice).  Reality is that there may be water get into these storage areas and rust things if they are sitting on a wet carpet.  At best you will have to remove things and dry out the carpet.

Right side storage

Left-rear storage

Left side Electrical/Sewer

The Kitchen area makes this outside storage area a little short on height.  I made use of it for pre-packaged items.

The left rear storage is used for a  'service' bay to house tools and towing equipment.  The 5 gal. bucket is a place for sewer accessories.

This area is the sewer/electrical service area.   Nothing stored here except electrical lines and sewer equipment.

Left side Water Service

Right-rear Storage

This is the water service area. You will note that I have added a filter and an accumulator to the rig.  This is also a good area for the water hoses.

This right-rear storage area houses the hydraulic leveler system and is not waterproof so I put oil containers in it.  Note the 2.5 gal bucket for oil fillers, rags, small oil containers, etc.
