Interior storage of bikes didn't make the priority list when designing the van. Mountain biking is a small percentage of our usage, so we'll probably go with some version of a vertical 1-up rack on the back door, passenger side.What is your plan for bikes with the bed so low?
Great idea, especially for no to kick cabinets.Channel routered into the underside of the counter overhang, this will receive an LED strip for some ambient downlighting.
He is on the forum as @cargovanconversion. Has not been here in quite a while. Still active on his YT and cross posts some of that to his website.I like how he did that. Countertop is currently attached with some angle brackets, but I'd like to eventually have it more substantial while allowing seasonal movement.
I have the propane sensors but I was unaware of the water sensor. I would love to use this for my under chassis gray tank, but I am concerned about the sensor coming loose. It seems like the combination of the slipperyI have the Mopeka water tank sensor and it is working well with the Cerbo GX. I coudn't bring myself to drill a hole in a perfectly good water tank for a sensor so the Mopeka was just the ticket. I have another one I'm planning on putting on the diesel heater fuel tank when it gets a little warmer out.
They have a kit that includes special adhesive for a polytank. I was pretty skeptical that it would work but I stuck mine on the bottom of the tank in August and its still attached.I have the propane sensors but I was unaware of the water sensor. I would love to use this for my under chassis gray tank, but I am concerned about the sensor coming loose. It seems like the combination of the slippery polyethylene combined with the design of the Mopeka mounting system (the spring action of the plastic mount is constantly trying to pull it away from the mounting surface) might be problematic.
Is yours mounted on the bottom of a polyethylene tanK? No issues with it sticking to that slippery surface?
Two coats of oil/stain and a coat of wax later, the countertop is ready to go back in. We love how it looks, and hopefully it'll hold up decently.
While the countertop was off, took care of a few details underneath the cabinet. I printed some screw-in cable clips, these are much more sturdy than the stick-on ones and the color matches all the victron equipment, which is obviously the most important factor.
New hole to send the 120v circuit back up the wall for a kitchen outlet, and then will probably continue to the upper cabinets...TBD. Everything else secured to a couple of clips.

And in place, ready to go!
coming along nicely!
I've used the Mopeka tank check on my #20 LP cylinder in the van for two years.Anybody else has experience—good or bad—with Mopeka and their products?
