Next mod...increase storage space.
The revel comes with an induction stove top that you set on the counter and plug in, it's a slick setup but takes up the entire top drawer in the kitchen. We were looking at putting the stove in a bag of some sort but then where to put the bag? While cruising the forums I found a solution that stores the stove under the bench seat, utilizing space that's currently not being utilized and opening the top kitchen drawer up for any number of more important uses.
Here's the induction stove in the stock storage location.
We ordered the Stove adapter from Clauson Cutom Hardwoods (Link here: CLICK HERE) and with the unit in hand set to installing it. The packing was great and everything showed up undamaged.
Although the unit is well built it showed up with bare unfinished wood, would have liked to see some kind of coating on it to protect the wood over time. That said I decided to apply a couple coats of OSMO to the wood before installing the assembly in the van. Off to the shop I go....
I started by removing the small door that's used to check the Glycol level in the heater and pealed off the felt that was lightly glued onto the bottom of the unit for the stove to sit on.
Now to apply a couple layers of clear OSMO. OSMO is great stuff and will provide a water & stain proof finish making the unit more durable, as well as making the wood look nicer. To apply the OSMO you use a very small amount on a non-abrasive pad to rub the OSMO onto the woods surface. You want to make sure there is no standing OSMO on the surface, once applied you take another piece of new pad and wipe any standing OSMO off the woods surface. Then let the finish dry, next day repeat the process for the 2nd coat.
After two coats the finish is super smooth and looks great.
I used a bit of 3M90 Adhesive to glue the felt back into place.
