View Full Version : Access Panel for water pump in the basement area

I would like to see an access panel added to basement of the 5th wheel campers... My 2011 BHCK did not have one. You needed to remove the entire rear basement wall to access the water pump and valves for winterizing. I have since cut and modified my own panel, but I am sure a factory job would look a bit nicer plus, it is just common sense to have one for this reason.

I just mounted hinges on the 4 corners and use hitch pins instead of the hinge pins.

I used a marine "pie plate" in the area of the winterizing valves.

Our ElkRidge has a panel, about 18" square, to access the pump and winterizing valves. It was held on by screws, but we added velcro strips instead.

I installed a piano hinge and a barrel slide pin.
