Area for a printer

I have a 36RL and wish it had a logical place to put a printer that is easy to get to and use. Any suggestions?

Setting up a wifi network next week. Will allow all our devices to connect to the router and then print wireless. I'm getting a omni directional antenna to try to get some rv park wifi better. It will all run through the router. Won't be any more bandwidth but maybe grab the signal better. A friend who is way smarter than me is getting the parts for me. Going to bench test this next week when I go home for a little vacation. I'll report back how it works .

Please do let us know how it works. Vaughan has been pretty frustrated trying to figure ours out.

Yea Tracy, no fireplace, bet it's the only RW out there without one. Honestly with the heat pump we haven't missed it other than it looked strange without for a while.

That's funny... we struggled with the WIFI too-I almost committed a felony after working on it too long. FRUSTRATING. Thankfully we don't print so much any more, and trying to keep it to a minimum. Trying to keep things in perspective!! LOL!

we also have a 36RL. I have a wireless router in the RV and I put the printer (an HP photo-smart all-in-one) on the top shelf of the pantry. I run the cord down to the outlet in the middle, the coffee maker also plugs there.

I configure the wireless printer before I put it up there (requires a USB cable from the laptop when I move it from our home network) and I need a small step stool to replace the paper or do scans when using it. It's the only area wide (deep) enough for the HP. If you have a compact printer there are other options.

Our printer is in the top shelf cabinet to the left of the TV.
We use a WiFi Repeater unit with an external antenna mounted on the ladder and it also doubles as a router for both laptops, smart phone, tablet, Kindle, and wireless printer. The other nice thing about it is another layer of security, especially when on open park networks.

Our printer is on one of the shelves in the Diva closet. Our air card functions as our router and we can print from both of our computers.
