1. Have the picture.
2. Respond like you have been.
3. There is a paperclip icon in the upper menu. (The attach button). Choose the arrow beside it.
4. It will let you browse for your pics from your computer to attach a photo or two or so.
5. Submit reply at the bottom of post.

And I think that is it. Looking forward to the pics, thanks.

I will post pics tomorrow. Bare in mind it's not finished yet. I have a liner in the area (white plastic) I put this in because I want my kids to use this area as a toy bin, lid is mounted but I want to add some shocks so the lid closes slowly, no flat toddler fingers.
Do
you have a loud water pump? Or a bathroom fan that doesn't move much air?

I had both of those.

extra storage

I hope you can see what I have done. I still need to add some trim and shocks to the lid.

Wow. That is a lot of space. It makes sense though. One question that I have is what did you use to make the straight cut against the wall? You did a nice job. Looks great and functional.

Google dremel oscillating tool. Super easy to use. I put some duck tape along the edges so the blade wouldn't scratch the wood.

I bought an oil rubbed bronze finished piano hinge and I cut the lenght of the lid down an extra 3/8 so it moves freely.

Thanks. I will try that. For my water pump I encased the underseat box with some 3/4 inch high density insulation foam to try to insulate the noise. Also, I grabbed some pipe insulation and "insulated" the pipes (as much as I could) coming in and out of the pump, specifically where the pipes touched anything (floor, wall, seat). That seemed to help. I can't take any credit for those ideas - I received that information from this website forum! Some others write about installing a small tank to reduce the number of times the pump comes on when you need water. Look around the site - some really great ideas.

I mounted my pump to a piece of rubber then mounted the rubber to the floor. It's the red mat in the picture, that is all I did and I can stand beside my pump and i can barley hear it running at all now.
I was having a problem with condensation, I replaced my stock bathroom fan with a vortex2. I run that at night with the bathroom door closed can't even hear the fan and solved my problem.

It's called Linatex rubber. I used 5/8 only because I use this product at work. We also use Urathane rubber, both work well for vibration dampening. Most of the pump noise is coming from the screws that hold the pump to the wood floor. Even though there is a rubber bracket that holds the pump, Jayco should have mounted the pump the way I did.
I must have cut about 80-90% of the noise out.
