Laptops. Tablets. Phones. Bluetooth speakers. Mifi devices.
So much technology that enables this digital nomad lifestyle.
Every screen has a battery. And a charging cable. And our Pleasure-Way Class B motorhome has but three power outlets available on the inside.
Here’s how we found sanity when it came to having a place to both store and charge all the devices.
Our Pleasure-Way had an odd little…I’m not even sure what to call it. With cabinets above and entertainment center below I’m not sure if this was supposed to be a night-stand type of space?
We tried storing fruit there in a basket but found it difficult to see what we had. The little trim rail made sliding the basket in and out hard.
I removed the trim rail and things were easier, but it was clear this space needed a higher purpose. All of our screens needed both a place to live and a place to chage.
Two of the three power outlets were here, so locating the charge center here made sense.
Light But Strong
While shopping for wood I found 1/4” Luan - which is a thin plywood.
The sheets were smooth and straight and the thickness perfect for our needs.
Outsource the Cutting
Ditching Suburbia Sticker
Sticker up your RV, boat, or water bottle with these Ditching Suburbia stickers from StickerMule.
They're approximately 3" x 3" and made from premium vinyl designed for outdoor use. They can even be run through a dishwasher.
They charge $0.25 a cut.
At that price it’s almost pointless to own your own saw.
Home we went with:
- A stack of shelves
- Some 90 degree trim
- Elmers glue
- Small 90 degree corner brackets
- Screws, nuts, lockwashers and finish washers
- A can of Rustoleum spray paint
- A couple of small plastic bins to store cables and other bits in
- Some plastic wire retainer clips to keep wires routed
- A surge-protected power strip with a couple of USB outlets
