I like the idea of the chains to limit the opening of the doors! Thanks for that one!

Thought I would post another one here. The slam latches are pretty easy to bypass, and while I'm not as worried about protecting what is in there, I did have a problem where I could darn near open a basement door because of the gap between the door and the latch catch. Simple solution, put an o-ring underneath (both seals and rises the catch). Problem solved. Not sure if anyone else will have this issue, but it cost me somewhere in the neighborhood of $.50/latch).

If my kids were older it probably would be an issue, but as young as they are I can see them slamming them open and breaking a mirror.
My mistake.....I was stating what I do for travel, to keep them from opening

Forgot to mention one more thing that is one my list tomorrow. Going to check all of the AC duct work to make sure that it is sealed up tight. Ran into this on my last camper and although I now have dual AC units, I want it to be running as efficient as possible for those times where we might be in 30 amp parks.

Here is what I am going to do....did this on my last one and it made a heck of a difference.

Second air conditioner

Had to call it a day, but got the following done:

Bathroom door lock for sliding door.




Chains to prevent bunkhouse cupboard doors from opening to far (used a lightweight chain that will break before screws are pulled out just in case someone yanks on it too hard.)



And last but not least, got the memory foam on the master bedroom mattress. Went with 3" thick.

Let me know if the memory foam makes a big difference or not we were kind of thinking doing that as well.
