The wall by the toilet was pretty square but the one by the sink was not. The splash guards have a removable "track" on the bottom and the back that are designed to help if the wall is not perfectly square.

Actually, maybe track is not the best description. The wide flange that touches the wall and shower tub is removable/adjustable. Get those secure and then slide on the splash guard.

I do have another question (you might start charging $$ )

How do you find the steadiness of the camper ? We are parked in the driveway.. Have the anderson chuk/levelers set, stabilizer bars down, but i still feel rockiness.. Never slept in a tt, (only an RV) so not sure what to expect..

Stupid "what if" .. but if someone rolls over in bed should ..the whole camper rock ?? Lol

Thanks again...

For front to back movement, the x-chocks really help a lot. But we do still have some side to side movement. The stabilizers are designed to help with that but we are all told not to crank them down too hard for fear of bending the trailer's frame and making things askew. That makes the door hard to open.
Honestly I have not found that happy medium where they are tight enough to limit side to side rocking without starting to lift the trailer. DaGrinch uses these and has found that they made a big difference.

Valterra Stabilizer(s)

Some have also added a flip down step stabilizer which will keep the trailer from rocking when you go up and down the steps. I may add that first and see how much it helps.

Keep the questions coming!

I am looking into the BAL X-chock's for my pop up. Hoping that helps as well. I too have a bit of movement that I would like to lessen.

Vin.

Thanks

I purchased the x chocks... Did not try them yet, but plan to this weekend. We are parked in the driveway and do have the stab jacks down but not too tight to the ground at all.. I was worried... I will check how much give there is in the AM and also check out that link you sent.
I did read about the doors and thankfully I have no issues there and don't want to make any.

BTW I don't have a cabinet on the island where you placed your garbage... So that mod might just be on our list!

If you are able to use the stabilizers without extending them very much, that is supposed to help with the side to side movement. Bal x chocks do help quite a bit for front to back.

BTW, where did you find the shower curtain clips for your shower mods? Thanks!
