Hope that makes sense. I think in some RVs, the mirrors are attached with adhesive.
Yes I see. I assumed you had full wall mirror which as you say are usually attached with adhesive.

I think in the "smart tiles" thread there are a couple of posts about removing the mirrors in kitchen areas.

It was a custom build, and just a basic barn. I will post pics in the garage thread

Package of 2 Safety Sun block shades for the front side windows. They attach to the window with suction cups. They have a spring mechanism that retracts the shade with a push of a button, and obviously you can see thru them for driving . $8.00 for the pair. Will be trying them out shortly.

Ordered 6 replacement courtesy lights for the floor in the motorhome. I tried buying new bulbs for the old ones. Spent a lot of money trying to find the right bulbs and never did, so I just decided to replace the light fixtures themselves, they looked like the ones that are in there. If they are bigger they will work, if smaller, well, will have to return them.

I'm super impressed with the quality and sturdiness. It is very large (huge) so I have some basement reorg ahead of me, but I'm so happy with this product that I will gladly make room for it somehow!!

We have had that same setup for about 4 years now and love it. I usually turn the middle shelf around and put the stove on the middle table so it isn't sitting so low

What was the last thing you bought for your RV ?

I thought the last thing I'd bought was recently DIY installed MaxxAir Fan/Mate vent covers on the four Fan-Tastic Roof Fans/Vents on our QSDP. These covers are hinged on one side to facilitate maintenance.
We are currently on our first trip since installing the covers and making full use of the advantages this new addition to our coach provides. They look like this stock photo:

However, when I stopped for fuel, I was unable to start our coach. Fortunately, the Battery Boost start switch worked flawlessly and we decided to continue on to our destination. Further investigation revealed one of the two 6 year old maintenance-free chassis batteries was leaking and bulging on one end. As you've surmised by now, I have just installed two nice new chassis batteries:

A case of "planned" and "unplanned" new back to back purchases for our coach - an experience to which we can all relate.

My recent purchases include a 50 foot 30 amp extension cord and a 30 amp service outlet at the house so I can plug in the MH when we are not on the road.
