    Have now replaced the small shelf unit in rear with a single drawer unit. Was going to go with the twin drawer unit but it meant the fridge would be too high.
    Also while I was on a roll tidied up the electrics for the roof mounted solar and fitted the compressor under the fridge mount which replaces the second row small seat. Made the fridge mount so it holds a 35L waeco on the upper level and the space under is just high enough and large enough to fit 2 cartons.
    Very Nice!. I have a similar setup in the rear as I never liked the height of the fridge on double drawers or the complexity/cost of a drop down slide.

      Fixed the bent sides and rollers on my 4wdsupercentre drawers.
      The mushroom head bolts that support the bearings that the drawer runs on are bending the steel sides. The sides are pretty thin galv sheet and not very strong. it also isn't stiff enough to keep the outer frame square so the drawer doesn't run square.

      Well still waiting for email reply from 4wd supercentre Re warranty on single drawer. Tried ringing but that was futile.
      So decided to fix them rather than wait.
      The sides of the drawers is thin sheet and the weight of drawers made the bearing support bolts bend the sides in so drawer would jam.
      also even though they fitted 2 bearings only 1 just made contact.
      made up some fish plates to fit on outside of the frame and then replaced the bearing bolts with longer ones and added washers to move bearings in so both would take weight.
      also fitted a polyurethane block on inside of frame to run along the drawer length, this stops the frame going out of square.
