Thanks for the info. I think I was looking at the same cabinet at Lowes. Hopefully I will not have a problem getting the old mirror off.

Here is a picture of the slug I cut out of my rear wall when I installed my shore power inlet. The wall thickness is 1 1/4" the other 2 pictures show cutting off the tip of a Zip-It wall anchor and the installed anchor. I used the pilot hole from the hole saw which was oversized from the nominal 1/4" pilot bit size so if you were drilling new, I'd probably use a 17/64 or 9/32. You'll need to carefully control the depth of the pilot hole so you don't poke through the outer skin and snip the tip of the Zip-It right where the threads start.

Thanks for all the help! I ended up getting a small medicine cabinet at Lowes and mounted it on the inside wall behind the toilet. The mirror over the sink on the outside wall appears to be put on with construction adhesive, so I did not want to mess with it. The cabinet actually looks good where I put it. I just used standard plastic anchors and sheet metal screws about 1 inch long. I can post a picture tomorrow if anyone is interested.

My 2010 17Z came with a medicine cabinet. I wanted the door to open the other direction so I flipped it. It was mounted to the wall with 4 screws with dry wall anchors. The cabinet is plastic with a wood frame around the mirror.

MyToys mirror was only mounted with tape. She drilled the holes for the anchors and screws.

Here are a couple of pictures of the installed medicine cabinet- nothing fancy, just functional:





I added the knob as the cabinet did not come with one.

I'm also going to add a couple of these to keep things in place:
