This is crazy interesting and will be amazing if you can pull it off. You should start a seperate thread and document it (so it doesn't get lost) I will be following along for sure.
Air conditioning and refrigeration may seem like voodoo at times. The hard work is already done for me though. Flow rates, line sizing, cap tube, etc. Being a purely mechanical unit helps. I am also kicking about the idea of a variable speed drive and an arduino for control, but that's a ways down the line. There are good resources for the DIY savvy. Your typical HVAC tech isn't doing the math to figure most of the hard stuff out, they consult tables and other resources for best practices, and then assemble it up.This is crazy interesting and will be amazing if you can pull it off.

Hi, I'm really enjoying reading this thread...We have a TV/monitor mounted at the foot of the bed. It is on a swivel arm,
Thanks!The arm and TV are still going strong. I have a elastic cord I strap over the TV when we are in motion which holds it in place.
The shower pan has been ordered. I am making it front 16 gauge stainless steel, about 1" deep with a lip flanged lip. Since my floor is raised by 0.5" with 1/2" plywood on top, I can cut out both layers and insert the pan into the floor. From there I can make a filler piece. There are some fiberglass shower pans made for RVs, but they are too big for my application.
Since you're going to be using a steel pan, you could have magnets in the bottom of the curtain. Some curtains are sold with them, for steel bathtubs.New shower curtain with 4 roof attachment points, side entry and slot for temp adjustment. Also snaps for floor pan.
That is a good idea. I need to double check my order to see, as some 300 series stainless isn't magnetic. I could put magnets on the back side though. I will have to test some neodymium magnets to see if they are strong enough. I could also opt for magnetic snaps (I use them on my curtains). Easier than button snaps, but good shear pull-out strength.Since you're going to be using a steel pan, you could have magnets in the bottom of the curtain.

Am I the only one that can't see these? Also what are your plans for thicknesses of aluminum of the various components? Thanks Man!So here is a thought on a self retaining bin without slides.
Here is the bin at full extension. In order to remove the bin, the front is lifted up as it is pulled out, which allows the tabs to clear. If desired the front face can be attached to wood etc for a finished appearance.
