I noticed that the bottom of my microwave
oven door was hitting the edge of the shelf opening (on the right side) and investigated to find that the shelf that the microwave
sits on was out of level. Further inspection was somewhat difficult since I had to remove two screws and the carpet from the bottom, lift the carpet off the sides part way, and remove a rivet I had added to support a paper towel holder at the sink. The OSB wood shelf is wedged in very tight but with some effort I could lift it up far enough to see that the support on the right (aft) side had come loose. It was just barley hanging on one edge and turned 90 degrees so it was mostly hidden and not providing any support. One more good bump in the road and it likely would have fallen into the back side of the fridge
compartment. The photo is after I pulled out the shelf support.
Further inspection shows that it was only held on with adhesive (and two small pieces of yellow tape used to hold it in place at time of attachment). It was not glassed in place like most of the other wood support structures tied into the shell or fiberglass cabinets. Sorry to say it, but this is another demerit for Evelands Inc quality. But please lets just say the camper is still a good value overall and leave it as that.
Options for repair include reattaching with construction adhesive, glassing it in place, using mechanical fasteners, or a combination of those. I am leaning toward adhesive with screws. It would mean two holes in the cabinet but I would trust the repair.
We can also look at the sealing of the exhaust compartment. It basically consists of wood on wood with carpet on top. When the shelf support came loose a gap opened that would allow exhaust into the camper.
Lastly, I wonder if it is worth trying to wedge some insulation around the fridge
box while I have it open like this. Ridged panels wont go into the sides very well but might work under the shelf
