Access Panel Doors
Has anyone created any decent door/hatch to access any areas of storage in their bus?
I've got a bunch of plumbing stuff that I want to access from the outside - pump, accumulator tank, strainer, shut off etc. I've got a plywood box that I'm going to mount inside just under the water inlet, then I'm planning on cutting out a hatch on the outside so I can get to both at the same time.
Basic plan is to cut out a square in the exterior skin, add in a piano hinge and some weatherstripping/seal (I'm looking at the kind you'd use on the bottom of a shower enclosure door), adding a lock and re-mounting.
It might look crappy but it will probably get the job done. Anyone got any suggestions?
