Hang it Up

Command release strips have to be one of the most useful items ever invented. I use them in the TT to hang almost anything from key hooks by the door. (Gift from my parents, you can guess where they live.)

To a coat hanger on the other side of the door. (hung with three of the largest strips they sell, and has not failed yet.)

We also have a Purell hand sanitizer dispenser by the door mounted with command release and the clocks/thermometer shown earlier are hung with velcro command release. As I'm sure a lot of us do we also have hooks all over to hang various items such as oven pot holders, hand towels, or robe hooks on the back of the bathroom door, all without making holes in the walls.

UV Yellowed Plastics

Our trailer is 10 years old, but thanks to the constant sunshine the plastics look nice and yellow. I decided to paint some of them in place, remove some of them, and replace other ones. The worst ones were the range hood vent, and the water connections as they were facing south at the storage yard where the PO had it parked.

I masked everything off in the area and prepped it for spray painting.

I removed the power hatch, the cable jack as they needed resealed badly and were easier to remove than mask. I also removed the bathroom vent cover off the roof to paint it as well.

I replaced the luggage door latches as they were inexpensive and easy enough to replace. Honestly everything I painted could have been easily and cheaply replaced, but I didn't want to have to break the seal on everything and redo it with the new items. Everything will still get fresh caulking, and the removed items were installed with new butyl tape. It was re-assuring to see that the removed items were not leaking and the butyl tape was still soft. Sorry for the foggy look on the last photo, my lens must have had some condensation on it.

I still need to do the frame around the window of the entry door, and I'm part way through replacing ALL of the vinyl trim. It isn't easy to work with when it's cold, but it makes a huge difference. Once that is done I will finish re-caulking everything else. With the bright white bathroom vent cover installed, the A/C cover looks beige, which is sad since it was one of the whiter pieces of plastic on the trailer besides the wheel well covers and fridge roof vent...which oddly still look great. Just shows how much trouble they could save future owners if the RV industry would use UV stabilized plastic on ALL the plastics and not just some of them.

Television Mount in Bedroom

Our 29BHS came with a "TV shelf" in the bedroom. It normally gets used to hold a fan when it gets warmer. We started keeping a TV on it recently though and we got annoyed very quickly having to take the TV off the shelf and put it on the bed every time we moved the TT.

Wall mounting would be ideal, but the wall between the bedroom and kitchen is only 1" thick and no vertical studs could be located centered on the foot of the bed. I did however find that the height of the lower shelf of the cabinet over the sink was about the perfect height for a TV to be mounted. In order to re-enforce the mount though I decided I better use some kind of plate or board on the back and decided to use a plank of oak inside the cabinet, which matches the cabinets perfectly.

I put a matching piece on the bedroom side and basically sandwiched the wall between them with 2.5 inch long bolts.

The mount feels very solid and I think the viewing angle of the TV is great where it is. Now I just have to do some cable management and we will be all set!
