Looks VERY nice. We are having a devil of a time finding Smart Tiles in-person (in a few different states now) to see and feel before committing to it.

The 1st pic is of somebody fixing a tail light on a TT in a WM parking lot in Murphy, NC. Looks like he needs more than a tail light.

Nice are those kitchen tiles and did you attach them with glue or the normal process for putting them up with paste and grout?

I believe they are self adhesive and need only scissors to cut to shape. This is why I think they were so great to use.

Plan for today: -
Order some BAL scissor jacks, and use some square U-bolts
Shop The Hillman Group 5-Count 2-in W x 3-in L x 5/16-in Dia Zinc-Plated U-Bolt at Lowes.com

to attach them to the suspension sub-frame.
The bolts should be the right size to clamp around the 2" square sub-frame, and use the pre-drilled holes in the flanges on the BAL scissor jacks (planning on getting the heavier duty 24" ones).

This would mean that the scissor jacks are orientated front-to-back, so using a regular crank handle would be tricky, but I'm thinking of either using a ratchet wrench, or possibly a cordless drill with a suitable socket bit, to extend/retract.

Seem reasonable ?

They are self adhesive tiles. More like large stickers. I cut them with scissors. It took about three hours, mostly because I'm not the most gifted at making rounded cuts. And I'm just too pretty to math.

This is on my list to do ours next spring. We purchased our trailer in September 2014, spent this year seeing what we like and don't like, and plan our putting our decorating touches on it next year.

You did a great job.. it really looks nice!

Bloody beautiful job!!!

How well do they (SmartTiles) hold up to the heat of the stove (not that I really ever use our stove)? I would think (which I have been advised against doing by DW) that the heat would cause some issue with the adhesive.

But after seeing it in the forum DW has been on the SmartTiles site selecting my next camper project.

Removed that FR water filter system completely. Took all of 10 minutes and 1, 1/2" cinch clamp. Leaked checked the system, winterized the plumbing and took the TT to the dealer for the last 4 items on my warranty repair list. Hope I get it back before the snow flies and my old cover fits it.

I researched other forums and found no issues with the heat from the cook range. However, I have no first hand knowledge as the trailer went back into storage after this project. The manufacturer indicates the tiles will withstand surface temps up to 120 degrees, and should be installed with 6 cm of space from side walls. They are not recommended in showers or areas with a lot of steam. I'll let you know if I have any problems once I start cooking.

I too put smart tiles up last year. Behind and along the side of the stove. No issues at all. They have stayed stuck just fine.
