Now I see what you are talking about. That's only place mats for the kitchen table. The service guy needed to move when he working on the mh. I haven't put them away yet, or I should say Maria hasn't put them away.

On another note I always post photos using my cell and tapatalk. For some reason lately they are getting posted twice. So sorry for the double posts.
Tapatalk makes it very easy to post photos, HMMMM maybe its user error

Dino,
I think we could use one of these for the vent at the base of the bedroom drawers. That vent made the bedroom super hot when we were in the mountains last month.

I did same to hot water heater... used household screen material for that one placed inside... Can't go anywhere.
My furnace had an available 'internally placed' screen - so bought that one at CW. Also bought the 3 small screens for the fridge vents... These attach with tie wraps. Didn't see a better way to do it.

The assembly consists of five parts, the support/mount is metal. The mount comes with I think 5 or so screw holes. Since there was no metal behind the mounting location I drilled a few extra holes and use #10 x 1 stainless sheet metal screws along with some construction adhesive for the wall attachment. The wall is thin plywood but after mounting it seems more than secure. The outer plastic cover slides over the mount, I used clear silicone to glue it and the tray in place. The cup holder uses three screws to fasten it on with a trim ring that snaps on. Wife loves it!

Great job!!! Do you have a link or info on where we can purchase the cup holder/shelf? By the way, I use an Android phone and can usually post pictures with no problem...I download them from my phone to my desktop via gmail then use the "paperclip" above in the menu to attach them to my entries on the forum

Dino, I called Thor and complained about the lack of a cup holder/tray on the passenger side and wanted to know about getting parts to add one. Lady said I couldn't add one because of lack of metal support in the wall, I said send me the parts and I can get it mounted, so they did. The Miramar and Challenger have the passenger side holder, I asked for one just like that, color is a little different but not that bad. Got the parts in about a week in two different packages.

I use an iPad and iPhone, finally tried the paper clip icon which I didn't notice before, that's how I got photos to show up on my iPad. Haven't used a laptop in a couple of years, only use a desktop at work.

You are "da man"

I may have to call Thor myself...I wonder if they have a parts catalog that customers can use?
