I actually ordered a Borescope today. I have a couple of other issues at my home that would make a Borescope come in handy. I found one with a 45 ft cable that plugs into a USB port. The total with shipping was $40. This is the one I got, but they have lots to choose from.

I'll post what I find in the TT.

Sagging Cabinets Update

Today I finally put my fix in for the sagging cabinet issue I had. The Borescope I bought originally had some real problems. Just cheap China crap, so I bought different one. In the mean time I did some more investigating and decided I didn't need one. With the poke around with a small nail method, I determined there was no structure in the ceiling. During assembly the factory is just driving screws into the ceiling, which is just 1/8 inch luan and styrofoam. I did find the aluminum frame that runs along the wall / ceiling interface. I think I have a good anchor at this point. The pictures are just of one side, I did the same thing on each side of the center cabinet door.

The other end I'm a little concerned with. I am not sure the screws will hold over the long run. The next trip should provide the proof. I suspect I will be using bolts instead of screws. Hopefully the wife won't be too upset. Unfortunately, these cabinets are close to worthless for storage. But this should help with the justification to move up!

Well, I was thinking the other day if you had figured something out.

My question to you, if the cabinets are going to be "worthless" for storage, why not just remove them completely or put up a shelf of some sort?

If it was totally my decision I would do something different. I have to convince the other half that it would be in our best interest. Life I'd,full of trade offs

Come on KZ, who wears the pants in the family? Oh yeah, I know who wears the skirt!

You have to make her think it was her idea, right?

I am happy to report that my cabinet mounting fix held up on our last trip. We put at least 3600 towing miles on the TT. We hit some bumps that opened all the drawers in the lower cabinets. We didn't feel them in the truck, but it guess the trailer did. Also, I16 between Macon and Savana, Ga will make you have motion sickness with its rhythmic surface undulations. This section of road put several things out of place, but the cabinets held up. When we got back I push up on the leading edge looking for movement and there was none. So far so good.
