Hi: Well, this is a first! for me. The u-shaped shelf in my 1300 Trill came down. I didn't have any heavy stuff in it, but I do recall a lovely bump I went over 5 to 8 miles out of the Leech Lake, Mn camp out or did that happen at the Nauvoo camp out?? The back shelf is secure. Anyway, everything is still in one piece and no cracks either! Securing the side pieces again are no problems It's the front section I am concerned about. Do I have to pull some of the isolate away and replace the rotten(unsure) wood or could I put wood hardener where the screws were and redrill 3 to 4 holes and secure with screws along the top of the window as replacement. Thanks-Mary Lynn

...well, the screws 'let go' probably because the screws rotted the wood surrounding them and either the screws broke (from rust) or the wood rotted and let the screw go. Either way its NOT a fun deal replacing the wood, but it CAN be done, got pics?????

Sorry, I don't but I'll have my son help me get some ready I am sure it's a wood rot problem, as all three screws fell out intact in front above the front windows and 1-screw came loose on the left side of curve from inside cabinet and 1-screw on the right end of curve is still in the wall (left of the inside doorway).-Mary Lynn
