In fairness, I did this yesterday... I replaced my thermostat with a digital one, I added a Smart RV Products Fridge Fix fan to my fridge, I installed a LevelMate Pro, I added gas struts to lift the top bunk in our bunk house, and I added a latch to keep the outdoor kitchen fridge closed while traveling and Velcro on the fridge shelves to keep them in place. (bottom two pics should be rotated clockwise 90 degrees)

Sure, this is what I used ( see attachment) plus 1 piece of scrap wood and 1.5 wood screws (if I remember correctly I used 3 for the top and 2 on each side) also a little bit of wood stain to try to match the maple color....

I mounted the TST 507 repeater and replaced the analog thermostat with a digital one.

Finished winterizing R-Pod except for antifreeze in P-traps.

Finished wiring for power to pedestal, tested, and plugged in. No more 100' extension cord.

How far in front of the axles did you install the repeater?

From what I can figure, it looks like it's mounted in the bottom of the bedroom wardrobe/nightstand, left of the bed (street side).

Pretty low tech mod...
My recliners liked to examine other parts of the trailer while we towed. I used to just put them back to back and put a strap around them, but that was really a pain. So I got a few d-rings and mounted them on the floor next to the wall and picked up a couple of long bungees. I'll put some towels over the back of the recliners and under the bungees to control rubbing...

Beautiful job! What type of tiles/glue did you use for the backsplash?

Dkelly , we were wondering how you cut that tile? Wife has been looking at some to replace ours too.
You'd looks great.

Put more stuff away to get ready to take MH to storage tomorrow morning.

No. In our Wildcat we have 3 different flatscreens for many years now and never have taken them out with no issues.
This is one of those topics that gets beat around this time of year.

I will add if you have LCD and live in a region that gets well below freezing (-4f) Samsung claims damage can occur.
I don't think we don't have anything to worry about.

Samsung's response:
"Samsung LCD TVs can be stored unused at temperatures ranging from -4 to 113 Fahrenheit (-20 to 45 Centigrade). Storing your LCD TV at temperatures outside this range can damage your TV."

Many people remove them if they park in a storage yard to prevent theft.
