Add-on Grill / Table mount

Hello,

We recently purchased a new T21DMHW.

I want to add an additional table /grill mounting rail (like the one installed by the factory on the front of the unit) onto the outside of the rear wall of the unit to accommodate refilling the fresh water tank from water storage jugs.

I haven't been able to find any information regarding the construction of the main body. I need to know how the walls are constructed so I can determine how best to mount the new table rail to the rear wall.

The walls are made from a fiberglass material laminated onto either side of a foam board core. I haven't done any drilling on my camper, but my idea would be to closely examine how the stock railing is attached and duplicate the factory method. Making sure the drop down support for the shelf is free from obstructions.

If you do the mod, please post a description and some photos.

I use a bilge pump with some tubing that fits in the water fill. I used some self-fusing tape to attach the tubing to the bilge tubing and it works great, no leaks or messes. Can transfer a blue 7 gallon water container into the camper in about 1 min.

I carry an X folding plastic table with me. With that I can about halfway gravity drain an Aqua Tainer using a short length of white hose and the fresh water fill tube I have anyway.

I use it for drinking water and have not had any problems. It's just plastic but it does hold a little water in it after using. When I sanitized my tank this spring, I sanitized my blue 7 gal water containers as well and pumped some of that water through the bilge pump.
