Litterbox cats solution

Full timers with two cats. Right now using the shower to put the litterbox in. Thinking of moving it to either, basement under the coach, nose closet with a short vent out or under the dryer with the same short vent out and maybe a computer fan in the end.

Does anyone have good ideas and maybe pics?

Our cats use the dining table more than we do. Their Dry food feeder and their water fountain are on the table and litter boxes under the table between the legs of the chairs. We also have an Air cleaner on top of the table that works really well.
We looked at a used unit several years back where the owner had put in a Cat door in the Vanity door and cut through to the basement for his cats. While it sounds like a neat idea you would loose some basement storage and I would be worried that someone would be in the litter when I opened a basement door and they would fly out.

Vaughan and Tracy have a great solution. Going to do it this spring when we take our cat with us. 20yrs old and can't leave her at home anymore.

You're right, the mother In law fit nicely in the basement. How did you keep the noise down, mine hasn't been any less irritating.

I'm surprised none of the cat haters have made any jokes in this thread. Let me be the first...

I built in a cat door into the laundry closet. I added a shelve about 30 inches off the floor. We use a covered litter box and put it on the floor turned sideways in the closet. We have the cats food and water in closet with a astro turf type floor matt on the floor to catch and knock off litter clay off the cats feet. I installed a Dyson portable vac in same closet to have a handy way of cleaning up the little bit of clay that does escape litter box. Nice and neat and tucked away out of sight. No mess, no smell. Her food and one change of litter are stored in same closet. The remaining 2/3 of closet contains a freezer, towels, portable ironing board, iron, laundry supplies, towels, vac accessories, 2 blankets and cleaning supplies. All very well organized and efficient. I use the Dyson vac for the whole Rv instead of central vac.

Kitty Litter

We got our 38GK about 3 weeks ago, we have the litter box in the same place, but, wondering how you put a kitty door in, our door is a fold out door, we don't want to mess it up, any suggestions would be awesome.

As long as the cat likes aircraft we're good . That's where the Piperguy comes from. Fly a Piper Warrior.

I bought a cat door the width of the slats. Then I removed a couple of slats and fit the door height wise to the rest of the cat door. You might say I bought the door and cut the opening to make it fit.I had to add a little bit of filler woods to the side to fill-in the thickness. once you cut the slat that the two-piece a slats will pull out from the door easily.

On our 36RE I removed the left louvered door completely.
