This morning's metal project - recycling a Trail Kitchen...
Up until this morning I had three Trail Kitchens here - an early production unit, a later production one, and my original homemade prototype. Definitely don't need three, but what I could use is a simple fridge slide - we often use the fridge for grocery shopping, especially when we buy frozen things in Indian groceries far away. So this morning I decided to recycle the original prototype and build a simple low-profile slide out of the parts.
The original prototype:
When I built the original prototype I started with a MORryde RV freezer slide:
I could have just disassembled the prototype kitchen and turned it back into a freezer slide, but the freezer tray is actually too narrow for my Dometic fridgees, and it's a double extension slide and I only need single extension, for this and it's a bit tall for a simple slide so I disassembled it down to basic parts, used what I could, added an extra MORryde Trail Kitchen fridge tray that I had on hand, and the result is this:
Exactly what I need for times when I'm not on a real expedition and it cost nothing except a few hours of disassembly and reconfiguration.
