We were quite happy with our Lil Snoozy over five months of camping last winter but... There is always room for improvement. Here's a few small things we did in anticipation of this winters adventures. Bathroom shelf, Kleenex holder and TP holder: Click image for larger version

ID:	65526 I used 1/8" dia steel rods from the hardware store to make the 'fence' around the ledge in the bathroom to create a shelf. It took a lot of stuff we used to keep under the kitchen sink. You can bend the wire easily of you heat it cherry red, possible with a cheapo propane torch. The Kleenex shelf is a piece of 1/4" oak plywood with the same 1/8 rod 'fence'. The TP holder is 3/4 oak with a ceramic rod our dog dredged up from the river bottom years ago. I drilled a blind hole and glued it in with epoxy. Click image for larger version

ID:	65527 Sue wanted to change the boring brass cabinet door knobs for something more "arty" and came across this idea on the interweb: glue a tee nut to the back of a small rock then screw it on in place of the factory knob. Click image for larger version

I like the rock knobs, it reminds me of Lucille Ball and the Flintstones! Rock on.

Denny, Michiganders as children learn to spot Petoskeys from 20 paces while walking the shoreline. But I suppose you know that!

I had this rack left over from a set I bought some time ago.
I borrowed your idea as this is about the only place that this
rack would fit and function. Thanks for the idea.

Did you add the access port or did they start cutting corners
for the later ones?

Nope, it came from the factory that way.
