ps. Thanks for sharing about the micorwave, I looked at mine and there are two screws from up underneath, looks like they are going into the bottom of the feet, so should be fine.
Aha! I thought you mounted from above, but nope, from the side. Honestly Gretchen, I'm not sure when I'm going to get to this stuff, at least for the next two or three days. Spring came, too much to do.
Thanks for the pics, I'm still thinking about this. Did you do a cable connection out to in, like this: Amazon.com: Prime Products 08-6215 White Weatherproof Cable TV Kit: Automotive
We have one coming. I think I will mount "out" to the left of the electrical
plug, and run in and up that adjacent column (right behind the dinette window) to the upper cabinet and run the cable around the cabinets to the other side, and give me an outlet over by where the TV will be. Actually, I may put an outlet over by the dinette too. Hmmm. Whatever I do, pics will follow.
Hey, we had those screws in the bottom of our microwave
too! When the microwave
came out, those screws (big ones too) pulled right out. They're like sheetrock screws, NOT machine screws; i.e., they are not threaded to fit a corresponding embedded nut. Plus the darn microwave
is heavy! Those aluminum straps are real easy to make, but the microwave has to come out to drill the upper holes. Peace of mind.
Gail & I did spend some time tonight going through camping stuff (we have a ton of it), and figuring out what to bring and where stuff would go for our first trip, and subsequent ones. Things will lighten up some next week and I can play more!
