TV

Hooked up a 22" in the bedroom and a 32" in the living room using the PAW mounts. Both were so wobbly I had to put Styrofoam behind them to stabilize. Also had to drop living room one 2" so TV would mount.

Getting a 2016 Grey Wolf 26RR Limited in a couple of weeks and I can not wait!

I was wondering, do the door latches on the cabinet doors hold them closed while driving?
My last camper they did not, I had to put different latches on all the cabinets.
Got sick of picking everything up off the floor when I got to where I was going.
Thanks!
Steve...

2016 26rr

I hope you enjoy it as much as we are ours.
Mine have done their job so far. I have towed it about 1600 miles since we bought it this year. More problematic is inside the cabinets making sure it doesn't come out when you open the doors. I also put gas struts on the doors that open upwards because holding them while you mess around with getting stuff in and out is a pain.

Riderbloke where did you get your door struts? What size did you get? Want to do that on mine just have not had time to research that. Just finished my HF motorcycle chock modification so it won't move. Did not go to your extent of cutting holes but I think will do the trick.

Rmac04401,
Sorry for the tardiness of my reply. I got them on eBay at http://www.ebay.com/itm/361061949374...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
The struts are about 7 inches when closed and 10 when open. The cylinder is 6" long. The choice of mounting plates on the end of the struts requires some thought as they have to work with the cabinet architecture. I put just one per cabinet. Mine have 50N marked on them if that means anything. I think it's the strength in Newtons????

Yes our maiden trip with bike was this week. Came down to OC bikefest. Trailer handled great. Motorcycle stayed upright. Traveled great. Can't say same for wife's coffe pot. Fell out of cabinets above window. Guess you can't put heavy things in there.
