Very cute! Did you put the trailer on the lunchbox?

Your shelf is a very nice design. We are looking at what to do like that.

No place for the crank and center piece for the awning. So added some Velcro behind the screen door and now they stand in the corner.

Pump

As you all know the pump can be very noisy. We bought the kit off of Amazon that has two soft hoses also mounted the pump on a 4" pc of memory foam. This seems to help a little.

One of the issues is the mounting bolts are still running through the floor. And IF they're contacting the floor at any point, then that transfers the noise of the pump directly into the structure. Putting the memory foam keeps part of the noise from transfering directly off the pump. The ideal way is for us to figure out how to completely isolate the pump from mounting to the floor--- I've seriously thought about a "box" of sorts mounted to the floor with the pump secured inside (to keep from moving around) with styrofoam, memory foam etc. Not only would this keep the pump off the structure but also encapsulate the noise within the "box".... AS LONG as you dont run the pump too long and let it overheat. Might be worth a shot.

FWIW, we used ours this past weekend and it IS noisy and can be easily heard from outside.

The only "CON" I see in getting the pumps too quiet is, you may inadvertently leave them running and not know it--- say on an empty fresh water tank? Just something to think about.

Refrigerator

We were camping with some friends along Lake Erie last weekend. Wife went to bed and text me ( frig is warm) I was at camp site far away. Frig has worked fine the 45 nights since we bought this trailer April 3rd. I opened the outside cover and found a bright yellow liquid dripping out from the back. Cann't see from where. The next day a very strong Ammonia smell. So strong had to exit trailer and vent. Called Scamp They said may need replaced. Said call Dometic found service center 10 miles from home and a appointment on Oct 13 for a diagnostic test. to sent to mfg. before a fix. Wish me luck. this 5 month old and under warranty. May have to pay for take out and install?

Might be able to spring mount the pump (add compression springs between the mounting platform and trailer) to isolate noise. The vacuum pumps I use on my equipment are mounted that way.

When we had replace our new fridge Dometic covered the first hour of repair labor but dunno if that's their policy. Usually you get to argue with both the trailer maker and the appliance maker (if Dometic tech decides the install was bad, get that in writing to send to Scamp.)

The trailer is only 5 months old?? You doggone right it will be paid under warranty!! 100%! Either by Dometic and/or Scamp. They should cover what Dometic doesnt including the labor to replace the Fridge because the TRAILER is under warranty itself.

Just FYI, there are vibration iso pads for equipment that mount to the floor and the end unit mounts to the pad. No transfer through the bolts. Grainger or McMaster Carr carry them for large items. Something like that would be easy to make by using a threaded insert into say a piece of rubber screwed to the floor.
Personally, I don't want the pump to be too quite. I want to hear it if it starts cycling by itself to tell me it's sucking air or a possible leak has started.

Fridge

Had the trailer in the service center this morning. They checked it out and said yep its broken. These are sealed units same with the air conditioner. Need to replace the coil assembly or the whole thing. They will let me know what Dometic says by the end of the week. Then they order parts or whole thing then set a time for install. He said no cost at all. I will wait an see.

No way they should charge. I believe we said it's 5 months old.

For you, now it's just an aggravation on the wait etc.
