I did something very similar to Bikester. I took the panel from under our J-Sofa to line the inside of cabinet with for looks. I also added two 12 auxiliary outlets, to charge phones, tables and so forth. On the 23B I have all of our slideout controls, tank information along the one wall side and all the TV and radio wiring along the back (outside) wall, so I just framed it up with a false wall, to hide all that stuff. I used my small brad nailler (sp??) to assemble it all.

I love the idea of an outlet there but would require a ton of work. Unlikely able to fish a line on the X17A

Does the Blank panel pop out or does it require some cutting to form the opening? I have an X20E where I could utilize that unused space.

I did pull an additional wire. It took a bit of work, I actually pulled the base (I guess that might be what it is called) from the cabinets next to it so I could pull the wires. It took a couple hours but well worth it. I thought about tying into the power feed for the stereo.

Dagwood, the panel just popped out with some careful persuasion. Aka I used a hammer and lightly tapped on the panel going around the edges a few times. There are a lot of staples hold everything together, no glue. Once it started coming out it was fairly easy to get it out without damaging anything. My plan was to do the work in such a way that if I did not like it, I could put it back together like original.

Here is a picture of the cabinet that I pulled the base out so I could route additional wires.

The false panel just popped off easily. It's very cheap plywood. It was easy for me to put an outlet in the cubby because there was already an outlet in the bottom of the whole unit. You can see the TV plugged into the original outlet in this pic. I just pulled off that box. I have not blown any fuses so far .
