Lol, know how and the right tools always helps!!! Myra has been making fun of me because of all the trips I’ve been making to Menards lately, thinks I have a girlfriend there!!! Fat chance, I’d end up with more dents in my head than a golf ball!!! Redheads are scary when they’re mad!!!

Gorilla glue? It looks like nothing ever happened. I've got to use some in the bathroom. Some of the veneer wood-grain vinyl is starting to peel away from the front of the rounded area at the sink. Pretty cheap cabinetry, if I even dare use that term. I'd better to fix it now before things get worse.

How did you fix that? On our Challenger 37 TB the front molding came off, I reattached it with 3 Kregg Wood screws from behind, countersunk, so as to not interfear with the inside seal. Now the rear trim is off, can't access it from behind. Thinking of using constrution adhesive,,

I just wanted to thank everyone who has contributed to this Thread. Especially Jerry who started the thread and continues to post great information. I have a 2013 34E Hurricane and have made several mods since buying the MH. Now I have several more to make and I owe the thread a big thanks for sharing the info.

I would like to know if anyone has installed a "reel" for the power cord? I'm a senior and that cord is a pain sometimes. I would like to be able to reel the cord into a bay. I have had a few ideas but so far I'm still looking.


Thanks again for the GREAT Thread !!


Jim


If I can figure out how I'm going to post the mods I have done
I also have plumbing diagram that hopefully will help someone.

My Mods
Original space. After a long trip we discovered the space didn't work for us. It's just my wife, myself and our schnauzer Abbie.

Welcome, Jim. I agree with the benefits of this thread -- and you're right, many thanks go out, especially to Jerry, Dino, and Dave.

Good job with your living space. Love the idea of the recliners. We had Laz-y-boys in our past life as 5th wheelers, and I miss them.

Safe travels,
Kent

We're in kernville and freezing in the mh with both a/cs going.

Will start fishing around 7 for the late afternoon bite. Maybe the fly fishing outfit

Jerry - great to hear the 2nd AC is doing it's job (and then some).

I have a question about the molding repair....my top piece (square) came loose. The long piece is still attached though.

I tried glueing it at first...didn't stay for lomg. Then I hand nailed a finish nail & got a lot of rebound, due to the gap/air space behind it.

Did you do anything special for the top piece to get it to stay?

Thanks.
