A Printer For The RV

Filed under: Uncategorized — donwood49 @ 3:45 am

I’ve been looking for a good, small printer to install in the dash where the TV was. I found the Brother MFC-420cn, a multifunction scanner, fax, copier, and printer. It’s a color inkjet printer and it includes a document feeder for the scanner. It also has USB and Ethernet ports. I connected the Ethernet port to the RV’s network hub so it can be shared. All this for $149. Wow!

The LCD monitor leaves lots of room behind where the tube TV used to be stuffed. I wanted to build the printer into the dash behind the TV/Monitor, but I haven’t had enough ambition yet. I did build a box to hold it temporarily and I’m thinking it may be a better idea. I’ll try it for a while. I can always use the dash area for more storage.
The box provides protection for the printer and some storage area for all the other stuff you may need like sun glasses, camera, note pads and maps.
The top lifts off when you want to make a copy. The top is a good place for the laptop when using the drivers seat.
