Dick,

I have one of these and they work quite well:
Amazon.com: Zircon 60371 i65 OneStep Wood, Metal, and Live Wire Stud Sensor: Home Improvement

I purchased mine at Home Depot. You should be able to detect the metal frame with this. Practice on a side wall to get the feel.

Good luck,

Bob

She's parked next to mine, I think it's a love affair. I don't know if it will work though, yours has the door on the wrong side.

As I don't know the layout of your coach interior, this may not work. But if your bedroom has a night stand that is stationary (not on a slide) or other cabinet, you could possibly remove the bottom drawer and put the hole there. Yes you would loose the drawer and the hole would go into a different basement compartment than you wanted. I did this for a friend who had a different brand - not Monaco built - and it worked fine. All the drawers were removed and four corner holes were drilled through to the storage area. Then in the storage area, a saber saw was used to cut out the plug. He kept the plug so it could be reinstalled later should he sell the coach. All but the bottom draw were reinstalled and it worked fine for him.

Sounds like an idea to me and you may find that you can cut deep enough to mount the cat box without messing up the stuff below the floor.

However there are a few books you might wish to read.. Titles resemble "Toilet train your cat"

Yes, you can teach the cat to use the "throne" and forget the cat box entirely.

That said.. I've not tried it with our two fur kids.

But it is supposed to be possible.. Or so say those who have done it. check out http://community.compuserve.com/cats Membership is required however it's free, If you have an AOL name (AOL, Netscape, Compuserve or their Instant Messengers) you can log in the same as there.

Talking Yes....it can be done

After some careful measuring, testing, examining, and remeasuring, I decided to give it a try. The aluminum framework surrounds the area I wish to put the hole, so looks like no problem. I should finish up tomorrow. Hardest part so far is cutting the tile! Will post some pictures when done. Now, if the cat will just use it. Dick

Place a small amount of dry catnip in the box beneath the hole once you get it done, I guarantee the Cat will use the hole. They're like a Junky with a Jones for the dry catnip.

Once the Cat gets used to the Nip (couple of days), start putting the litter in the box and with very little Nip (small amount once a day). After a week, leave the Nip out. Now they know where to go to do the deed!

If you have a booth type table place the hole under the seat and mount a cat door under the table where your feet go then you could access the cat box from under (outside)
