I remove the pots, but I leave to knives on the magnet strip while traveling.
OK I may sound stupid here as I understand NOTHING about the electrical in the boler yet... my friend has yet to come over and help me figure it out and rewire but how do you turn them on and off? I see no switch. also where did you find the cover as I see the fans and the guards online but the pretty white case I don't see... did you make it? Forgive me for being such a newbie

Thank you.

I put the fan case together using plastic that I had. The hole was 4x7 so I had to find fans that fit and plastic that covered. I think it looks pretty good. If I did it again, I would use more powerful fans. But I think they are very cute and they are very quiet!

ok heres the update. had a little too much fun painting today but it looks OK. still gonna work on the fridge. may end up painting it all stainless but kinda liking how goofy it looks right now. LOL made the "table" over the stove... fits over it perfectly and will work as extra counter space when the stove isn't in use. when it is I can simply put it on the table and use it as a tray. I'm having so much fun figuring this all out

As long as it's PERFECT for YOU... that's all that matters. There will always be purists and always be the "wild child." But what works for you, works for us!

You guys really have some nice kitchens, all of you. Brooke and Pam, I especially like your touches on your kitchens. So creative and practicle. I am a fan of the vintage decor for the vintage trailers, everybody is different and that's what makes the world go round. This is a fun thread.

Supports for drop leaf table

So the plastic cover stays over the stove all the time. All covers are just cutting boards from Walmart. The support is a cut-up cutting board from Walmart with the hinge hardware bought at the local hardware store.

I would love to know how others have supported these drop leaf tables. I would like to make one but don't want a lot of holes in the fiberglass. You certainly have a creative approach.

I have something similar to this.... already came installed from PO. this one is really great quality if you don't have a counter with a lip it works great. Saw it at the store the other day and considered possibly upgrading my own then realized I didn't NEED it so I chose to save the cash and get something else.

Diane, since my trailer is a 1985, the 'vintage' touches would consist of brass trim, etched glass, colors in mauve, peach, hunger green and blue - which are not my taste. Not to mention the hair sprayed 'big hair' style and leggings. (scary) I like to do whatever fits my fancy, so I don't worry about keeping mine vintage.
