    Probably not considered a BL mod but started off with us considering a BL shower add to our Miskruier B810 and ended up with this.

    A QuickPitch Ensuite shower cubicle in a Alu-box. Tested over the eastern weekend and worked like a charm. Now we have a more mobile option and the quality is great.
    Fitted it with a pair of FrontRunner quick release awning brackets. 1min on and off when we leave or return after a trip.

    The fridge do seem to move around a bit.

    Any help will be welcome.

    On the bottom of our NL72 are two rails that the fridge sits on. We drilled four holes in the bottom of the rail and installed (M4/M5?) riv-nuts/nustserts and then used four low profile button head bolts through the slide base from the bottom. The bolts need to be quite low profile to clear the door seal but it eliminates the straps and keeps it firmly in place. If possible place the fridge upright on a table to drill the holes etc. so you don't have to turn it over. If you do turn it over, leave it upright and off for a day or so for the freon can settle back into place.

    Sorry, I was using Freon as a generic term, I think ours runs on 134a. Either way we tipped it up on end when we were drilling the holes and it went a bit wonky until the refrigerant settled down.

    I find that the mattress on the side bed of our Boskriek moves downward (away from the window) during the night. I seem to remember that someone with the same problem used Velcro to fix this? Does anyone have more details?

    I just simply put one of those non-slip mats used in car boots under the bottom half of the bed. Solved the issue.

    I cut a piece of insertion rubber and placed it over the lid of the storage compartment under the mattress - no more sliding mattress.

    At your age, shouldn't you be less active in the bed at night? Asking for a friend.

    Remember to lock the fold out beds locks so that the mattress can move up a bit higher.

    Draai net jou matras om. Daar is n dik en n dun kant. Dit is so gemaak om gelyk te slaap

    Die dikker deel van die matras l op die kas waarin die battery gestoor word (die voete kant), die dunner deel op die paneel wat na buite oopmaak (dit is op ons model - 2012 BL 34. Weet nie of dit verander het sedert BL weggedoen het met die hout vul stuk op die paneel wat na buite oopmaak nie)

    Die bed se buite slotte. Druk hul albei in asof die hatch gesluit is.

    Hi Dave,

    This mod is exactly what I was after. Our BL Kewer 2381 suffers from the same dreaded grub screw problem. Please could you advise as to where you sourced the pins.
