waterproof bathroom medicine cabinet
 
Has anyone found a plastic medicine cabinet that is nearly waterproof for installation in an RV's wet bath? Seems like it could be useful and my search has had little success.

Thanks, john

Here is a photo of our "medicine chest" door, in our Scamp 13D, which is cut into the bathroom wall, allowing access to the closet space behind the microwave.
It is deep enough to allow storage for such things as tp and washcloths as well as toiletries and firstaid stuff.
It is made from a picture frame with the wall "cutout" secured inside the frame. This is then sealed with a selfstick gasket and hardware.
It works great and has supplied dry access from inside the bathroom for several years now.^_^
Of course the frame could be filled completely with a mirror if desired.

You could make one out of army surplus ammo cans or medical kits or such, and paint them the color of your choice.

Frederick came up with a great idea using plastic flip top boxes attached on their bottoms to the bathroom door. The thread with pictures can be found at Bathroom Storage.

Kind of like Floyds suggestion I was thinking of putting a electrical access panel in the Scamp's bath wall to gain access to the rear of the upper closet shelf. Found this one on E-Bay W/O key lock.

What keeps the contents from falling out when you open the "door" ( lid ) ?

Tilt the bottom out just a small amount with some extra 2 sided tape.
