Cutouts into the lower drivers bunk side paneI face. Separate cutout for the electrical components. With a Shell, you get a 6 fuse block. I will be stacking a 2nd 6 fuse block onto this one, so I can direct wire the refrigerator & a very small water pump. The other two cutouts will give me much improved cubby storage access. Compliments of a Shell. They will all have pull down hatch doors just like the turnbuckles. Sorry for all the individual posts. I can not seem (kb) to get more than one pic/post.

Initial pic of driver’s side galley. Top deck removed & slightly extended. My Shell order included heater & glass top stove.
I ordered online & configured a 7 gallon Ronco marine water tank. Added undermount bar sink using Starboard as a sink top. Starboard countertop will be added to the refrigerator. Final details still pending.
There will be a small seating area to the front most right of the galley cabinet. It will be used to sit across from the couch when the lagun table is needed for whatever. I plan to order fabric from FWC & fashion a “front dinette” type seat.
Last pics for now.

Thanks Vic. You were incredibly helpful to me when I was trying to figure out the electronics of my Solar configuration.

Galley Plumbing pics ... 7 gallon Ronco tank ordered online with fill, draw & vent openings drilled, threaded to specs. Positioning sketch was provided & was confirmed by telephone. The fill barb is a heavy plastic combo. I found the stainless threaded barbs on Amazon from a brewing supplier. (Important! After!) I found out the brass ones I purchased at Lowe’s do contain lead. The plumbing was painful as I found my $55 Shurflo 1.2gpm pump seeped at the housing connection. This was after methodically getting rid of more ordinary leaks. I then bought an off brand, to me, for $18, with the same specs that works flawlessly, so far .... It was too late to return The Shurflo, to Amazon, so beware of the smallest version they make.
The sink drain was difficult as I was off in my planning by couple inches which left me few options. I had to completely customize drain with finally a key pvc fitting milled to perfection by my neighbor that made it work.

Finished galley cabinet using a Starboard top & a marine pullout faucet. I knew I was going to be very tight above & I went with a premium faucet which is heavy duty.
The cabinets were made by a friend of a friend using FWC purchased ply & Formica I purchased from HD to match the Camper.
