    Is there a specific reason why the slide out draw on the nearside of the B544 is made from metal?

    There isn't any drainage from the draw, I was just wondering what the general use of this draw is for everyone?

    I am currently putting the hose, watering can and tool kit in there

    Is it a Beeny Box? I wasn't aware that 544 had these as an item,why not drill a few drain holes in the bottom and paint the drilled areas with rust inhibitor.

    beanie box was a company that designed and fitted drawers into the side skirts of motorhomes and horseboxes etc. to do this they cut a section from the skirt below floor level and installed their drawer or box then refitted the cutaway part of the skirt as a drawer front.

    theyre great for carrying hoses and cables but can suffer from rusting due to the position they are in being subject to road debris and spray. as suggested drill a couple of hole to act as drains but make sure you seal the cut edges to resist rust
