Great idea if I had a welder. There's always a better way to do things, I just make it work the best I can with what I've got available. Receiver only cost $10.

I did this to store it in my shed in 1 piece.

They say if I weld something to my bumper it will void my warranty. Just a receiver from Harbor Freight I secured to the wall. These are cheap also and may be able to used somewhere on the tongue etc.

This weekend we got the fiver all shiny and pretty for the NC Rally. I put new plastic shelving in the bedroom closet. We also hung a key rack near the door for the dogs leash and collar as well as a coat rack near the door for our jackets. I managed to find matching key and coat racks that were the perfect color wood for my fiver. Since DH was afraid to use screws after the TV fiasco (another story), we used double sided mounting tape that says it can hold up to 30 lbs. hopefully it will hold well.

I got it on Amazon. BLACK+DECKER TROS1000D. It has a heat shield for mounting under a cabinet. It has to be taken down when traveling. The mount isn't made for traveling. It would shake off the mount. Don't ask me how I know.

Ally I guess I missed it but did they get your TV fixed? was it a computer or wire harness problem? If the tape hangers don't work out try double sided 3M tape., or even liquid nail, It will never come off.

Or if it's really permanent use a rivet gun. I found a video on using one in RVs and I couldn't be happier.

Nothing too exciting: wash/wax/roof/awning cleaning and installed a screen protector on the door so my daughter doesn't crash through it.

We did use the 3M double-sided tape. As for the truck we got it back on Friday so far so good looks like it was An evaporator temp sensor
