The Egg has pockets....

Last week I posted a thread New egg hatch.... wherein I installed a hatch cover over the a/c vent opening. Now that Irene has passed I finished the install and realized the amount of space available for jacks and plastic leveling blocks.

In addition the smaller hatch is a result of switching to the Marinco disconnect and replacing the electrical door with a bigger hatch. Now I store my electrical supplies and spare propane.

I hooked up my 15 watt solar which keeps my batteries happy. That little dohickey hanging over my voltmeter is a IR thermometer to read my hub temperature when I stop for gas.

And I opened my new door window to let in fresh air. The little sign is a "In Case of Emergency, Pet Inside" sign.

I like the solid hatch for storage but don't you need to open the whole hatch with the AC running so it can still get fresh air?

Yes it has to be open, and the stuff inside will be in use while camping, before you turn on the a/c. But for 9 months of non a/c use you can use it for storage.

I think I would put something like Hardware Cloth or screen in front of the AC fins.
Those fins are the key to the exchange of air/heat as I understand it and should be kept as pristine as possible I am told.

you mean like this- actually the items fit together like a puzzle and there is little movement opportunity.

I can't really make much out in your very tiny picture?
But I am talking about the fins being bent and smashed by stuff stored inside there as well as foreign matter that may clog the fins.

I have never given it too much thought really until a friend came by to work on my AC and chastised me for not keeping the outside unit clean and pristine!

Yeah, my first thought when I saw the picture was, "That jack is gonna hammer the heck out of those fins with every bump and bounce." If you have a way to make a solid cover to protect the fins, I think it would be a valuable addition. Other than that, great how it worked out for extra storage!

Actually the jacks are wedged in tight at the base, there is a 2-3" sloped and the jack bottoms can not move in any direction and since the jacks are tapered, with the base being the widest part, I can not see how they will hit the a/c. But I'll try it on the next trip and see if I'm wrong.
