Hey folks,

I brought home my Roo 21BH last week. I guess the bathroom medicine cabinet didn't like the roads and I found it on the floor. I can bring it 200 miles back to the dealer, leave it, and get it again... But that is a lot of driving for a medicine cabinet.

So, here is what I am thinking. The 4 screw holes, put anchors in them. Make 2 more holes with anchors. Then fasten it to the wall with liquid nails. Anyone have any opinions or other ideas for me?

Matt aka Choochoooooo

Liquid nails works great, I mounted a 32 inch TV in my last 5er on a board and I glued the board to the wall between the bathroom and living room. When I traded it in I was going to remove it but it was easier to leave it in. I hated doing that because it was a Mor Ryde mount. But as long as you don't plan on ever moving it the liquid nails with the anchors should work great.

The glass mirror didn't break? You're lucky. Your plan to reattatch sounds good to me.

Thanks guys for the vote of confidence. And I was lucky that the mirror didn't break. I didn't notice for a couple of days because I didn't go into the bathroom.

My old old campers back in the 90s had studs and stuff, so I am new to this laminated stuff.

I like all of that except the liquid nails

I would use slightly larger screws
screw them into your predrilled holes
remove screws
and
add very small amount of JB Weld into each hole
put screws back in
after this sets it will never fall off again
plus
screws will still break lose later if needed

too much liquid nails
and
you may pull down the wall if ever needed to replace

If it were me I think I would invest in a pop rivet gun. That way you don't have to repair the whole wall if you decide to change it out later

Thanks for the suggestions.

As for pop rivets, I would need some long ones to go through the wood on the medicine cabinet or get some L channel aluminum.

As for ever redecorating, it will be someone else's problem. Once up, I don't want it down.

I agree. There were little things like that on my Cat, and rather than take it back to the dealer, even though it was still under warranty, I just did it myself. And did it right. I had one overhead light I found hanging by the wires. There was just one screw in the thing. And no holes to indicate there was ever more than the one screw. Sheesh...really? Anyway, it is now mounted properly with 4 screws. Other little things like that I have fixed properly as well. Now I know it is done right.

If there is wall paper behind the cabinet, liquid nails will not work. You will only be gluing the cabinet to the wall paper……….
