I added a battery monitor so I actually had to mill a second one.....that's the large round hole in the second picture.
One more.....switches are light, water pump and fridge.
First off, that is an absolutely beautiful implementation. Both of them. The issue isn't installing into a cabinet, but more how to stylistically build / install a box that attaches to the cabinet so the back side / wiring of the panels is not in the cabinet sucking up in my case closet space and being put at risk of damage. The biggest issue is the 12v outlets as they are so deep. I could easily whip up something for the control panels, or just install in the magazine rack that gets zero use and makes me wonder why the even put that there... I guess people in the early 90s read a lot of magazines while camping?
And there might be a solution to this issue. And that would be to mount everything BUT the 12v outlet panel into that magazine rack and cap it. WAY more than enough room for that.
Magazine rack + cap + building some kind of extender would do the trick too with the outlet panel.
Just magazine rack and put the 12v panel in the dinette base right below would work. So would pulling the panel apart and installing each outlet where I need it, that would make routing wire a real PITA though... I really need a single 12v outlet in the kitchen cabinet by the sliding door to run my CPAP, and I need USB chargers more or less everywhere...
