FAQs

  • How do I install the galley?

Mounting to the wall: Our galleys are designed to mount to the vehicle's wall. You can measure and mark a section of solid wall truss/beam behind the cabinet to approximate before shooting a screw or rivet nut into the wall. We recommend a minimum of three rivet nuts or five self-tapping screws to hold the galley in place.

Installing a refrigerator: It is required to cut inlet and outlet ventilation holes for the unit to cool down without posing a fire risk. Refer to your refrigerator unit manual to learn more about airflow direction and ventilation requirements. 

Seal the butcher block: This is commonly done using mineral oil, butcher block oil, or a food-grade finish. This butcher block arrives unfinished, so seal it before use. 

 

  • How do I know if the galley will fit my vehicle?

These galleys are designed to take up the space behind the driver seat in most vehicles. This unit may also be placed elsewhere in the vehicle.

For Promaster Models: The galleys are designed to have an angled cutout in the back of the cabinet to clear the dropped floor and allow the unit to sit flush against the wall. The Promaster models also have a structural pillar in the cargo section of the vehicle that will prevent the galley from being flush with the wall if mounted to the pillar. Because of this, we recommend mounting galleys to the left or right of the structural pillars. 

 

  • How do I apply, paint, stain, or sealer?

Painting

  • Lightly scuff the entire cabinet surface that you plan on coating with 120-180 grit sandpaper.
  • Apply 2-3 coats of primer before applying your main coat.
  • Always apply a finish when you're happy with the paint to get a long-lasting appearance.

    Staining

    • Sand the surface on all faces with sandpaper traveling with the grain of the wood.
    • Apply stain very cautiously to a section of the cabinet that will not be visible to gauge the volume and pressure you need to achieve the look you want.
    • Apply the stain evenly with a rag, sponge, or spray gun until all surfaces are coated.
    • Please note that overlapping surfaces may make the stain darker on the overlapped areas.
    • Always apply a finish when you're happy with the stain to get a long-lasting appearance.

    For Butcher Blocks and Slabs

    • For most units, Phillips head screws hold the butcher block to the cabinet base, which must be removed.
    • If staining, sand the butcher block thoroughly with 120-180 grit sandpaper. 
      • Apply a sample on the underside of the butcher block to find a volume and pressure that achieves the color you'd like.
      • Apply the stain evenly with a rag, sponge, or spray gun until all surfaces are coated.
      • Please note that overlapping surfaces may make the stain darker on the overlapped areas.
      • Always apply a food-grade finish when you're happy with the stain for a long-lasting appearance.
    • If sealing with oil or wax, make sure the oil or wax is food grade and apply evenly with a soft rag or sponge. 
      • Allow to dry and re-coat one or two more times.
