2. Right now I use a small microwave on the table, I would like to find one to mount somewhere but I wonder whats the best choice is and where to mount it, you guys know the space issues in our little beauties . Help!
You need to use "Olympic rivets."
To use them, you will also need a decent pop rivet gun, and a tube of Vulkem sealer.
You will also need the correct drill bit size for the Olympics, which is #21.
You should also have #30's and #11's handy as well.
We have a drill bit kit that provides all 3.
You should also find out what's causing the rivet failures.
Three things that do cause that type of failure, is lack of proper running gear balance, excessive rated hitch bars, and a heavy duty tow vehicle, and/or a combination of those.
