Hi,
Yes I did. So far just the front 4 are installed. The hardest part is drilling facing up, keeping pressure and falling metal flakes. My old cordless craftsman had no problem with this job.

Made a huge difference and want to try to install the back 2 this weekend.

Thanks. Does it clamp on firmly and no worries of it loosening from vibrations?

This is the second trailer that it has been on, it has not loosened at all.
I made sure to tighten the set screws down well and then the jam nuts.

So, I had my first warranty repair. Had water leaking from the return on the rear A/C. This is what I found when I got up there:

I do not know what the staining is, but I am glad I went up to check the work.

My next long trip would probably have worn through the copper and let the freon go.

They also fixed my inverter connection and left the inverter powering the fridge until they drained my batteries.

I know now RV dealers are as bad (or worse) than car dealers.

They had to order a new fireplace, I already asked if they could ship it to my house instead. As everyone here has stated I will try to do my own work as much as possible.

I cannot wait to try this. Did not like the gas grill and I always use the charcoal grill anyway. Can use a skillet for breakfast now or boil things here while grilling.

Nice job. I'm removing my Capital grill on our trip next week. How did you secure the piece of wood? Did you just screw into it and the drawer sliders? also, which Coleman is that, just the classic two burner one for about $45 at Walmart?

Thanks,

I just bought a wood panel that was 16” wide which is the same as the Capital Grill Shelf. Took of the drawer slides and screwed them on to my new shelf. Had to cut the piece of wood to length and I clear coated it for durability.

The stove is the Coleman Even-Temp, which has two regular side burner and a large rectangular center burner. I wanted this style because I will be using the skillet on it most of the time to make breakfast. 28,000 total BTUs should work much better than the stock grill I still used the skillet on. It is a large stove but since I will not really be carrying it around it is perfect. I did have to remove the handle so it would fit, and as you see it barely fits in.

Ok, thanks for the info. Nice job. I almost burned up our 5'er with that Capital grill and hamburgers. Fast learner. Never cook on that thing again. Removing it next week.

I remember you telling us about that fire. I was already convinced to change mine but your story definitely helped me buy it faster.

Finished adding a bit more counter space to our 2021 357. We've also added JT Strong Arms, Central Vacuum, shocks, onboard surge protection, a 4 backup/side camera system, Mount-n-Lock 6" bumper for holding our firewood chest and a kayak rack.

Only issue we encountered so far was a bad check valve on the water heater. Fortunately this forum is awesome and easily searchable. A thread discussed the issue in detail and $8 later all is good.

Love the layout, but the fold down bunk in the bunk room is pretty much useless to anyone older than 6. Pulled it out after our maiden trip to get some more natural light in the room. The living room layout just begs for a coffee table. Found a nice folding one at www.braddandhall.com

Love the ideas posted for replacing the Capital grill.

Note to all 357 owners. Many of the mid bunk layout owners have complained about the bunk rooms running hot. It does. One easy fix described in another thread is to block the return wall register below the desk. If your cargo doors are open and you look through this return you'll see light. It just opens to the mechanicals next to the cargo bays. If the cargo bays are hot, the air con will pull that hot air into the bunk room. And any insects poking about too. That return is only needed when you run the furnace. There's also a thread on inspecting and modifying the air conditioning vents in the ceiling worth reviewing.

Wow, that is a nice add on, now that look good.

I like the added counterspace. Do you have a link for the folding hardware?

The brackets were purchased on Amazon. They’re pretty robust. They had the longest wall support (22”) I could find. With the island being made mostly of MDF, I wantEd to disburse the load over the largest area possible. The counter top piece weighed in at 23lbs. If you’re using a lighter or smaller board for your extension, there are other options.

Amazon ASIN # B07F4K3GB

The counter top is a John Boos 24”x25” cherry 1.5” cutting board I found in Amazon warehouse deals (scratch & dent) for $85

Amazon ASIN #B001NG8P66

Great. Thank you very much. Saw a large piece of Teak at Lowes that would be perfect for this.

We use our Capital Grille with a skillet top and also for boiling water, etc outdoors. We use real grills for grilling. It’s worked well so far for our use, but I can see it being a pain when used as a primary grill.

I did also use the capital grill with a skillet, I always had a small mess to clean up and with the grille on high it took a long time. I never tried boiling water with it. I used the Coleman for the first time this weekend and it was so much easier and faster, even with burners on low. I am glad I did this and would recommend it to anyone.

Did you have to do any modifications to the cutting board?

Also, I can't find the supports you're referring to on Amazon. No ASIN #B07F4K3GB found.
