Porta Potty Storage and Relocation of Controls

Porta-Potty Storage and Relocation of Controls
2019 Ram 3500
2017 Palomino SS-1200

My Palomino SS-1200 did not have a toilet suite, but it did have a sizable clothes closet for heavy winter clothes. I also kept banging into electrical controls sticking out in the aisle (where the blue tape is located in the picture).

Porta Potty Location Door

To solve this issue, I moved all my electric controls for the jacks and pop-top lift into the closet so that I’d have room for a drop-down storage locker.

Porta Potty Location

For the porta-potty storage, I cut the side wall below the dinette seat out, reinforced it, and added magnets to retain the new door. Above the porta-potty, I created a false floor that’s 5-inches deep for more storage.

Electric Controls Relocation

It has worked out great. I have an uncluttered aisle and a hidden toilet. My knees and bike tires no longer get hung up on the battery disconnect switch.

I repurposed existing materials. A fifteen-inch square piece of 3/8-inch plywood was used for the false floor.

It took me four hours to complete this modification and cost me $10.  In my opinion, the skill level of this modification is easy.
