Locking door on side of passenger seat base

It is my hope that in the future this space with a locking cover will suffice for secure storage. So far the reviews are good, we will see if real-world use is the same. I am hopeful!



The locking door is available from The Sprinter Store, here is the link:

https://sprinterstore.com/product/sa...-sprinter-van/
Just back from a five day trip (I will see about doing a trip report, time will be scarce the next couple of weeks...) Just wanted to report that the addition of this little locking door worked great. We bounced the van around pretty good with no rattles, the quality is top-notch, and best of all, Laura liked it!

DPF Regeneration

Refer to previous Post #309

As you can see, there is a readout for temperature, pressure and average distance between regeneration. As for me, I've only noticed the van regenerating once during the time we've owned it, almost 9,000 miles as of today. I will leave these settings enabled and see how much variation I get with driving.
Here is a recent screen shot taken running down the road at 70 mph. As you can see from the top line, "DPF Regen in progress".



Watching the screen while the regeneration cycle is happening is interesting as you can see the temperature cycle up and down while the DPF regenerates. Other than that there is no indication that anything is happening.

It works great to swing next to the counter for extra space when preparing dinner and it is even better as a desk with the front seat rotated and facing the rear. The last few days has seen us at several rock shows (Laura's thing, not mine, but I learned long ago the wisdom of Happy Wife, Happy Life) thus I have been working remotely while she has been beating up the dealers looking for those "special" deals!



Hey Fitz, glad your table is working out so well for you. What are your table dimensions? Today I mounted a Lagun table pedestal in the same location you did (have an extra mount for the rear seating area), and I want to experiment with table sizes.

In the spirit of using what ever is on hand, I found some 1" starboard and milled it down to fit the contours/angles of the seat:


Mounted it up, and am looking forward to having a table.



BTW- when you mentioned your wife was taking you rock shows, I at first figured it was to see a different kind of Rolling Stones...

Front Table in RB 50 Layout

Beached,

VERY nice, I am sure you will like it as much as I like mine! My table top dimensions are 16" x 24", it makes for a very nice and versatile size in this particular location.

For those of you wondering what a Lagun table is, here are a couple of pictures I took of one when I was at SMB Fresno a month or so ago:




Beached, please show us your finished product. both front and rear, when you are done. I have been thinking of either adding a rear mount for mine or adding a Lagun table in the rear position, seeing yours may push me over the edge!

Beached,

You are a Geologist, you better assume the (best?) (worst?) when I say rock shows! Quartzite looks to be a regular event on the calendar, and I know there has been talk of Madras in the near future, plus we were in Parkfield two days ago...

I've started taking pictures titled "Can you find the Geologist?" Here are what I have so far, one taken each month of this year as we have moved around.
