Put one in last summer. Just followed instructions no issue. But, wished we had used same model as we have in house shower so at end of season could have just moved it and used up the products.

Me too, but we bought the three button system. This is the third motorhome it has been in the last 10 years. Used double back tape in each one. Hence the ability to remove and relocate. Without drilling a hole in a wet area!

Don't under estimate the holding power of silicone. I had spot about the size of a quarter lift a chunk of Formica laminate off the bulkhead of my last boat. The best mentioned previously is constant steady pressure over time. Those wooden or composite shims work great. Just tap under what your trying to remove a little at a time over a few hrs. or more, don't get into a hurry.

Here's a quick tip. WD-40 is a great adhesive remover including silicone and it won't damage the surface or the part your removing. Learned that one many years ago while on race teams. We were always having to remove and replace decals.

I would love to install one of these but have read so many bad reviews. Im worried about the pumps going bad. I have also read that they wont pump thicker shampoos and conditioners and that they also leak and you have a constant puddle on the floor of the shower from thinner liquids. Can anyone comment?

3 years and no problems pumping, loosening or leaking with our 3 dispenser model.

I think you are hearing those things about the cheaper brands. We have the three dispenser Simplehuman at the s&b and in the RV. It is one of the more expensive dispensers, but I have not had the any of issues you list. We have driven thousands of miles without one leak. We use both thick and thinner liquids. If you let the thicker liquid get low, maybe less than an inch, then it can have issues dispensing, but just fill it up and it works fine again.

What I have the most leaking issues with are those regular individual sink side bottle dispensers that sit at the side of the sink with hand soap or dish soap... When on the road, I'll put them in the sink so they don't fall, and I think they have a party together...
