When you load it into a photo processing app in your computer, it should strip the information that causes it to orient itself correctly on your phone. So, you wouldn't flip it to upside down in your computer. Once it's right side up in your computer, you save and download it to FGRV from the computer. It should then appear as it appears in your computer.

that does look like the rear 'tv' shelf... in the rear curbside corner, above the bed, there's a small alum bracket that a 'leg' slips into, that leg fits into a similar brakcet thats held in place by a screw right about where that screw hole is.

I called Casita and they said they don't have anything like the board I'm describing. I checked all our cubby holes and all covers are accounted for. The finish is the same as other tables, including the edge finish and rounded corners. The odd thing is that this is the ONLY piece in the whole camper with holes drilled all the way through.

My current guess is that the prior owner picked it up from a different RV and was using it to raise the microwave a bit so the microwave door doesn't hit the frame of the cabinet when it's opened. It's an after market microwave and sits a little low. Who knows, maybe it was even a scrap piece from Casita? I have a text out to the prior owner and will let you know what he says if he answers me.

Thanks everyone!

I did have it right side up in the computer, as well as upside down. Neither worked. You may be on to something that there was something that didn't get erased when I sent it from the phone to google photos to the computer. But since the other photo of us with the camper loaded fine I'm going to leave it be. Thanks for talking me through this!

John, we do have the rear TV shelf and it's shaped completely different. This board has 90 degree angles and wouldn't fit in the rounded corners of the Casita. It's also much smaller than the other shelf. I'm now thinking it's a scrap piece used by the prior owner to elevate the microwave. See my other post...

Cutting board possibility

We have a similar board in our 2004 SD. It was an optional accessory that fits on the drawer to give more prep space. You have to pull the drawer out as far as it will go to put it on. (I usually leave it at home as I prep outside most of the time.)

Shirley, wow, thanks! Very creative and I think will be useful. Does your board have holes pre-drilled in the corners? They look like they would be for some sort of clamp to keep it from slipping off the drawer.

Maybe the holes were to attach rubber feet so it sat on the stove lid. Or for brackets to prevent it from sliding off the drawer if it is for that purpose. Many used trailers have modifications made by previous owners. I've seen (and copied) several, so you never know if they didn't explain it when you bought it.

Makes sense. I'm pretty sure it is designed to fit over the drawer and if so, the holes would be for brackets to keep it from sliding. The holes would be pretty darned close to perfect for that. But I'm thinking it could be handy to keep it like it is so it can double as a platform for the microwave (the door doesn't hit the cabinet with this underneath).

The first year we had our Casita I put a rubber mat in the cabinet for the microwave to sit on and trimmed down the fiberglass lip at the cabinet door so the microwave door would open. The rubber mat kept the microwave from sliding around. Now we use that area for food storage and either leave the microwave at home or it travels in a plastic bin and sets outside on the folding cook table along with a gas grill and toaster oven. We don't cook inside. The bin sets upside down on the microwave when it's not in use.

Cutting board

Ours doesn't have holes drilled in the corners, but has a small board glued onto the back to keep it from slipping.

Obviously for some kind of mounting hardware, but what? Ideas? I'm having trouble loading the photo I took.
Unless it is an access cover under one of the cushions it doesn't make any sense. We don't have anything like that in our 2007 Casita. The odd shape board if you have one is the corner board for the television. It mounts on the back curb side corner. There would be 2 metal mounts that the corners fit in and there's a flat rod sort of that holds the front of the shelf up and the rod goes into the 3rd mount on the wall. The shelf is not permanent because it would be in the way. Maybe it is just something the previous owner left in and it isn't original.

Sink cover question

Sorry, I can't answer your question. But if you want a sink cover, I bought a nice cutting board and glued/screwed on cork stoppers or blocks to each corner on the bottom of the cutting board to hold it in place while on the road. Cover increases working space, and helps secure little items in the sink while traveling. Be sure you glue your blocks or cork bottle stoppers before you oil the board.

Hi Marge,

As best I recall, our Casita's sink-top "cutting board" was two layers of the same wood-grain covered particle board used for the cabinetry. Maybe you have the lower half?

In any event, a polyethylene or hardwood cutting board would be much more functional. Our particle board would collect casual water and quickly started to swell at the edges.

We had a custom mattress so the bed was set up permanently. We used a larger Formica-covered board which we would set on the bed to create more "counter space".
