I like that idea even better Dennis! I got a Craftsman tool kit free not too long ago with some "points" and it has "Brad bits" in it. They would be excellent for drilling the holes I think for the plugs. Just got to watch and make sure they dont go all the way through! lol.

Good point about drilling through. The brad point bits that I use have a very fast lead and pull through very quickly. A depth stop is in order.

Hilarious! Now that you mention it, the kit ALSO came with set collars for the bits. Good stuff Dennis! I'll "test" if I ever use the wood method before going "live" on my Scamp doors!

That said, I find the MDF use very disappointing. I'd replace the door with some AC plywood. Raz
Replacing the door with AC plywood would be a denegration since the bulkhead and the door on the deluxe are made of an engineered material with plastic on one side and Oak(or Birch) on the other. It is very stable and after 12years of regular use, mine looks and performs as well as the first day.
Why would you choose AC grade plywood and not something with more plies and good on both sides?
I do of course agree that a shower curtain properly used will help to protect the door and the floor outside the bathroom.
You recommended not getting the door wet... does that mean one should also refrain from feeding it after midnight?
I know some trailers seem to be plagued with Gremlins, especially those with a screw loose!...
