It is not unusual for the latch that holds the TV up against the wall to come undone on bad roads (seen any of those lately?). Then there is really stress on those screws holding the mount to the wall. We put a bungee around the whole thing to keep it in place when moving.

As for the cantilevered upper cabinet over our sink, I think that defies gravity beyond common sense and I'm thinking of putting a strut down to the counter-top to support it. The best aesthetic way to add supports is to have them do another function, then their real purpose is not noticed. So what could that support be? Key rack, towel bar, hat rack, paper towel holder, maybe just a chrome bar?

Spice rack. In fact, if you go with a chrome bar, get a revolving spice rack, and put the bar down the center of the rack so the spice rack revolves around it.

We had the cupboard over the bed fall out once, shortly after we bought the Bambi from Can-Am in London, Ontario. We had been freeway driving all day, pulled up at an RV park, and surprise, surprise. Not just the shelf, but all the wires for the cupboard lights. We had nothing heavier in the shelf than spare bedding, towels, and a few clothes. Since we were westbound for several weeks, we just put the shelf in the back of the truck, wrapped in blankets, and continued on our way. Fortunately we got a one-year warranty from Can-Am on the Bambi, so they paid for the entire re-installation. Not a great introduction to AS quality, but the shelf has been fine since then.

I haven't had a cabinet fall, but I have had two overhead cabinet doors come off their hinge on roadside overhead. I then noticed they were installed with short 3/8" screws. I replaced them all with 3/4" screws, just short enough to not go through the door. I also added some Gorilla glue to each screw hole to keep them tight. There are 28 screws on those 7 overhead cabinets. I found only one installed by AS was the proper 3/4" length.

Correction - I just noticed there are 6 screws on each overhead cabinet. So there actually 42 screws that I changed.
