Folding counter top falls off

2016 International 25FB

well that nice small counter extension that folds up/down for a little more counter (you know it blocks the door on the FB version when in UP position).....
well after a long rough road we checked the interior.

It totally ripped off the sink wall. Being held on by 4 screws only about 1/8" into the press board sink wall. The added base and the counter top weigh about 5-8 lbs...not light for those small screws.

So after this trip I'll be adding a metal strip backing (inside the sink wall) and use bolts and nuts to secure the fold up counter.

Let's keep the "find smoother roads" and "this is how to stop the bouncing" replies to a minimum.

I just want to share that the fold up counter is held on by very minimal attachments.
