Installing Exterior Baggage/Compartment Door Clips
Like some of you, my head is getting a little sore holding open the exterior baggage or compartment doors when I want to get something out that requires two hands. So I purchased some standard white spring-loaded clips that should do the job on our 2018 29MV.
Now that the time has come to do the installation, I'm a tad worried about drilling screw holes in the sides of our nice new MH. I have no idea if I'm going to be drilling and screwing into pipes, or wires, or ductwork, or into a proper solid surface. The screws I got are #8 x 1/2" stainless so they won't go too deep, but I still have no idea what's behind door number one. And from what I have seen and read on the JOF, the Jayco employees aren't worried about where and how the utilities are run.
I know some of you may have used adhesive or glue or tape or screws. So, what works best? Should I be worried, or just go for it? I am extremely careful so I won't be predrilling a 2"deep hole for a 1/2" screw. Your opinions are always appreciated!
