The poles come with adjustment holes every 6", so I added more holes to give adjustments every 1.5". Since the inner pole has flat sides this is easy to do, as you only need to center the additional holes left to right and only drill one side.
Looks good, you did a nice job.

Is this an interior wall or exterior?

Removing the exterior wall foam insulation behind the cabinet to recess it could cause structural issues due to:

1) A place for moisture from the bathroom to access the exterior siding causing delamination

2) If you find an aluminum stud back there and cut it, there could be severe structural damage as all the studs and cross members are required to maintain rigidity in the wall structure. Reducing that rigidity could cause structural cracks at planned penetrations like slides and windows, since the "unpenetrated" wall sections are the "glue" that supports the rest.

3) Removing foam to create the depth will reduce the R factor behind the cabinet to zero causing your meds and bathroom articles to freeze in cold weather and overheat in warm.

Just would not take the risk. Might be better to buy a different style medicine cabinet (or remove it completely and just glue a flat mirror there).

I think he is talking about cutting the medicine cabinet down and just remounting it.

I thought it was both- cutting down the medicine cabinet, but then also recessing it into the wall to recess it:

took a 3 day weekend with our trailer this weekend.

I straightened the alignment of my Stairs so right side would make contact and not give way. I also put the wood guards back around the water pump.

Would there be any issues adding some insulation around the pump... its pretty loud

That is definitely a switch. Usually it's the other way around!

Most pump noise comes from the pex vibration when the pump is running.

Isolating the pump from the pex with very flexible hose and rubber "feet" under the pump will remove a significant amount of noise.

Don't worry about the AF freezing or getting a little slushy. It won't expand like water does. There was a thread about it here.
