The Simple Human comes with a silicone adhesive....and I think I used command strips as well as the provided silicone. No holes necessary.

It comes with 4 pieces 3M VHB tape, and silicon glue; which I used to attach it. Seems strong and sturdy and should stay up for a long time.

We like it so much, I decided to buy a single pump for the head to use for hand soap.

Newbie question: Do you feel that a microwave is important, presumably especially for summer cooking?
Yeah, I am anal with regard to utensils as I consider the microwave to be classified. I want them to work well. I always have to be careful updating stuff as I can make a mistake and get something I don't like then I cannot leave it alone- for long and repurchase wasting money. The replaced model works. It is the fourth microwave in this trailer from what I can tell. The original owner replaced the OEM unit with a massively large unit too big for the trailer which he added bungie cords to hold it in place! I could not stand that so I got rid of it immediately and got a cheap unit that fit the hole well. It was too cheap. It had terribly uneven heating. It would burn something on one corner and leave it uncooked on another. Awful. The new one is rated highly though last night I learned that it DOES NOT have the genius sensor even though it is a genius model. It is tough to get a small micro that has big model features. At least it is still rated good.

@BoldAdventure: ;like the pumps. Nice.

Gosh, I think a microwave is extremely important in my trailer. Just think, I wouldn't have anywhere to store my bread without it! :P

Kay

PS: we do use it, but not much right now. I can see it growing in importance as we use the trailer for longer trips.

Used our 1999 Sharp convection MW this weekend. Wife made gluten free chock cake! Baked biscuits. Reheated biscuits, bacon and gluten free bread... And there were no microwaves used or abused!

Oh, good bread storage too.

I installed my simple human dispensers last year with included command strips and silicone around the periphery of it - I keep them only 30% full to reduce weight - so far they have not fallen off or loosened - no holes necessary so far

My new-to-me 20-ft 2007 Safari has no microwave. Would an unattached one be placed on the floor of the galley when traveling? It seems that I wouldn't want to lose countertop by bolting the microwave down there. I could mount it on the top of the refrigerator cabinet where a television is supposed to go but that also seems wasteful. Suggestions?

When I had my 20' I put the microwave on the bed when traveling.

Do not know how much room you have but I keep my little toaster oven in the clothes closet when underway. My micro is mounted above the fridge. If it ever craps out I will replace with a convection/microwave.

Our microwave sits on the floor under the dinette table when traveling. I kept the original packaging styrofoam thingy that fits inside to protect the glass rotary plate from road bumps.

It's on the shelf on top of the fridge when in use. Inexpensive unit from Walmart, but it does the job when we need it.

Improvements?.....Yes!

Now that I have tested these, 4 wheels and tires, I can say the work well. At no time did the tire temperature get hot enough to where I could not touch either wheel or tire with my bare hand....this after about 1300 miles.

And, my new window valences work well, especially when one has lots of neighbors.

DIY sun shade for my awning. Got the sun shade material from Harbor Freight. Supposed to cut the sun by 70% UV shading. Had to cut a couple of feet off of one side. Matched the attaching points to fit the Tropic Room mounting snaps and new eyelets for tie downs.
