Here’s an easy mod to make some of the storage in your X213 a little easier to access. This may apply to other models depending on how the Couch/Bed is configured. On my camper the skirt beneath the couch is purely decorative. In that I mean it does not structurally support any weight of the sofa. On my model the skirt was held on with two square drive screws. from the back. Remove these screws to give access to the ample storage under the sofa. You might now even be able to fit something under there.
After seeing an awesome Hack-a-Day “RickRolling” Free Wi-Fi access point based on a node MCU I wanted to see if I could do something similar on my tiny 51KB ESP-01 module. While annoying as all heck this “hack” is pretty clever and involves social engineering to rick-roll people. The users is lured in by free wifi that does not exist and then a message of the designers choice is displayed on their screen. The original can be found at Hack-a-day: ESP8266 Mobile Rick Roll Captive Portal – and like mine was based on the work of others. This was designed for a NodeMCU ESP with 4MB of flash – not the 512KB not found on the paltry ESP-01 – although the original “Captive Portal” did run on an ESP-01 it was much more limited in support. This project also gave me an excuse to try out the new PlatformIO IDE and dust-off my unused ESP-01 modules. Read more
I recently lost one of the caps for my nearly new water jug. A quick search showed me I could order a replacement cap (and spout) for $10! I would never pay that kind of money for a few cents worth of plastic. Instead of throwing away this really nice jugs I decided to design a replacement cap in Fusion 360 instead using the cap from my second can as a reference. The water can in question is this one which we purchased from Amazon: http://amzn.to/29JFeCw
