My 28BHBE Mods So Far

Nothing terribly big, but these are a couple of the mods I've done so far to make life a little easier.

Hose gasket on the drain plug so we don't have to take the sink apart when DW drops her ring down the trap.

Bamboo cutting board for stovetop. I don't like the size (DW likes) but the feet work GREAT.

My favorite mod, courtesy light for the control center. Magnetic switch turns the LED on when the door opens, no more switching by Brail.

Fold up step saver. Had to cut some out and JBWeld the pieces back together because it was too tall. Works pretty good like this.

Bob did you hardwire the LED light in your control panel or is it battery powered?

Hard wired. I tapped into the 12V outlet (where you would plug in your cell phone charger) just below this cabinet.

Thanks! I like it. The only problem I had was that the wires for the light and the switch are tiny compared to the wiring to the 12V outlet, but I got it to work just fine! Only blew one fuse!

A lot of really great mods! I particularly like the control center light and the step support. Well done!

My "mods to do" list just keeps getting longer, and longer, and longer . . .

What did you use for the step saver? I was about to weld one up but..... I like the idea of it being permanently mounted under the step.

This is the official name: Camco 43671 Self-Stor Step

I'm on my iPad right now (tapatalk), so I can't insert a link, or don't know how...

The way it came, it was too tall to actually be useful for me. I actually got it at a PPL tent sale in Houston for $8, so I didn't feel too bad about hacking it up. The part that screws to the step is attached to a hinged piece of threaded rod about 1/2 in dia. The foot is attached to a hollow steel tube with a nut welded on the top and a foot on the bottom. The nut screws onto the threaded rod which also creates the adjustability. I just unscrewed it all the way off, cut about 1" off the threaded rod, cut about the same out of the body of the tube, JB welded the tube pieces back together and hose clamped a PVC "sleeve" around the joint. It would have been easier to really weld it, but I don't know how to weld or have access to a welder, so I made it work...
