A couple months back, we posted about how a TPMS saved our bacon (link to that post). A TPMS is great, but what should your tires be inflated to? This is a question that many new RV’ers have because, in their regular drive around town car, they just inflate to the pressure listed on the door post of your car (you do.. right?).
There we were, driving down the road out of Capitan, NM, when what to my steely eyes did appear ( and ears ), but a FAST LEAKAGE warning from my Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)! Continue reading TPMS FTW
After seeing the custom built desk Chris at GeekRV had, we went crazy with ideas for our workspace. Thanks to Ron Gatchell we have enough space, and it looks like it came from the Tiffin factory floor this way.
Michael’s temporary desk
Monitor lift with felt on the wall
Pull-out work surface
Pull-out Laptop Storage
Laptops in pull-out storage
Printer and pull-out storage tray
Pull-out writing surface
A few highlights and details about our design:
The Corian is 144″ long, and our need was for 133″ in length, so the main top took up almost ALL of the $850 piece of Corian.
To gain the extra functionality that we wanted, we gave Ron our existing Buffet and Tabletop (along with all the cabinetry) so he could re-use it in our new desk!
Both sitting areas have pull-out keyboard trays
In between the two sitting areas, we incorporated a pull-out workspace extension for soldering, 3d printing, etc..
We also had a pull-out Laptop storage cubby built into the middle area to keep up to 3 laptops safe during travel
Since Lehnanne is a lefty, we were able to include a pull-out writing area for her on the far left side, above the drawers.
But, my favorite part!!! Is the pop-up monitor! The lift was purchased directly from the manufacturer, Nexus 21 (be warned, they are pricey, but made in the USA and are very high quality). Video below:
