I have one very similar, I used screws too. I'm not afraid of screws in the Airstream.

The night vision works well. I can see moths flying around in the carport.
It has a mic that pics up the neighbor's a/c condenser and cars driving by on the street.
None of these features will matter when using it as a backup camera, but the good wireless range (advertised 1,000 feet) and clear monitor that picks up everything in good color (or clear black and white night vision) will matter.
The fact that it plays 5 lullabies, has a 2 way intercom with push-to-talk on the parent unit, and has a temperature alert will never come into play while watching the back of the trailer or looking to see if my cat is coming home to eat.

The baby monitor works well, but...
Since I have no way of powering it continuously, I am not going to mount it permanently. The Baby unit (camera) runs on 4 AA batteries with a 4 hour battery life. The Parent unit (monitor) has a built in rechargeable battery and a 10 hour battery life.
Not enough battery life to use it as I travel down the road.
I will just set the baby unit on the bumper while I am backing into a spot.

Killed a wasp nest residing inside my rear AC cover....

'Fixed' the condensate drain issue....

planning to remove 'blue tape' in prep to clean things up, when it 'cools down' a bit.

Tightened the pivot bolts on the 'folding step'... lubed..

Opened the cover for the propane tanks to see about adding a security/chain/lock etc...only to be met with a wasp nest and boy were they unhappy that I disturbed them.

The good news is that I somehow didn't get stung...

I finally did it! I got home a few hours ago after a grueling 6 hour negotiation. I bought a loaded 2015 Ford F150 Lariat Ecobeast 3.5 to tow my trailer with!

That's about where I mounted my level with tape and it's been on for a few years now. I don't know why yours didn't hold. One other thing that I did to mine was to take the level adjustment screw out and re-install it up-side-down so I can adjust it from the bottom.

Bob, that looks like a good upgrade. I have several marginal plastic fixtures. Will keep this upgrade in mind.

Thumbs up To make the install easier......

Chief,

I got tired of them breaking one at a time so I replaced them all.

Most difficult was getting the mail & female lined up properly....
I put the female, (bead side), on the jam and the male side on the door.

After attaching the bead side to the jam I put both countersunk wood screws in the door fitting and snapped it into the jam fitting. I then placed a small thin piece of plastic under each screw head to keep them straight in the assembly.(very important)
You now have the latch assembled just as it will be when done & the door is closed.....except you have two sharp points sticking out. Slowly close the door 'til it hits the screw points, push firmly with one hand and thump the door sharply with the heal of your other hand right where the screws are...bingo, two center points right where they need to be.

Marked my drill bit for depth with tape, put a little 3M 5200 on the threads to keep things secured, and screwed away.

Bob

Congratulations. I have a 2012 Lariat Supercrew w/ max trailer tow package. I have towed over 10k miles thru Arkansas, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Colorado going up and down very steep grades. I am very impressed with its towing ability. Enjoy.

Tell us about your new truck.
Max Trailer Tow? SuperCrew? What is the GVWR? What is the Payload capacity?
