Here we go again

After wintering in the so cal desert for 6 months, we are now on the start of our summer sightseeing trips. We decided to go to Pismo Beach Ca to start and overnighted in Bakersfield beforehand. We were late getting started because one of the tires on our cargo trailer, hauling our car was low. We tried to put in air but the valve stem was no good, so we had to change the tire. Always have an extra tire for those trailers. Then we got on the road, and 215 was ok but when we got on ca 395, that was a different story, lots of construction and loads, and I mean loads of bumps. To make a long story short, our bedroom cabinet holding our new flatscreen tv, the frame came away from the cabinet and took our tv down. It wouldn't have been so bad but the coax cable on the tv broke away from the pc board, didn't pay to fix so today we bought a new tv and in a couple of days a guy will come to reinstall the frame with SCREWS, not the staple it was put it with. By the way Pismo Beach is beautiful and we are staying at the Pismo Sands rv park cause they have long pull throughs.

The TV in our bedroom was installed flat against the cabinets and it seemed awkward watching it from the bed. When I went to install a tilt bracket for it I realized that the entire weight of the TV was being held by one wood screw. I ended up taking everything apart and properly reinforcing it. It was a matter of time before it would have done the same thing yours did.

I went through the entire RV and found a few other half-arse installed things that needed to be properly installed.

BTW, jealous of your C5. Mama said mine had to go if I wanted another kid. IMO, the C5s are the best looking Corvettes in a long time. Well, that is until I saw one of the new ones on the road. I want one, but I'm going to have to wait.
