In the second picture it's just hanging from the wall hardware. I still have some cipherin' to do about that leg. It's too long to fold up when the table is down ( by about 3").

Glenn, if you used a 3" spacer to mount the leg hinge, and shorten the leg accordingly, it should fold up ok.........I think.

Thanks, Dave. That's what I was thinking, maybe even incorporate a silverware drawer in a 3" skirt and mount the leg to the bottom of that.

A friend on Instagram who owns a 1300 with an original front dinette tells me that their table uses different hardware.

Turns out that the discrepancy was 5" once I accounted for the angle at the front of the footwell. I couldn't skirt the whole table that deep, no knee room! What I decided on is a 5x8x14 utensil drawer down the center. Click image for larger version

Can't say that this won't change again, just have to try it out. Also mocked up a small shelf to cap off the wall reinforcement thingy.

Thanks, and you're right about the edges. All will be sanded to mimic the radius on the fiberglass corners in the rest of the rig.
It's all kind of a test-fit for now. We're headed for the Green Eggs and Ham rally tomorrow just like you see it. We haven't even chosen a fabric for the cushions!

Frig cooling problem

Glenn,

I you are still having difficulty getting the frig to cool on LP, you may want to re-check the placement of the vents. For the Dometic 2193 and others that size, the distance from the bottom of the lower vent, to the top of the upper vent has to be a minimum of 31 inches. If not, the heat rising from the heater tube will get trapped at the top of the opening and not get vented outside. The heat build-up seriously reduces the efficiency of the cooling unit.

Jim

Thanks, Jim. The problem was an obstructed orifice. I could see light through it, but not a crisp round hole. I had already soaked it and tried to clean it, but didn't have anything with me on vacation that was small enough to poke through it. When I had it out back in January, I used a single strand of a copper speaker wire to clear it. Been fine ever since.
