Basement Roof

Hi everyone, finally getting a chance to square my basement away, just finished making the access to the water filter larger, removed the wall and made door opening 24 X 24 which now allows easy access. Want to screw some hangers to roof of basement to put scrub brush, mops and a few various items there, and I am looking at supports that appear to be square in shape and run fore to aft and support the basement ceiling, in some parts wires and tubing run between, does anyone know if anything runs inside these channels or is it ok to screw into. Your input is appreciated.

I did not think of that Jeff.... I just hung all my fishing rods up the other month.. I ran self tappers into the part that has the seam and molding...

My lights do not dim, and no water ran out, so i guess I am ok ??

Hope all is well

Joe

This might be an idea...Poke your head in the area just behind the storage area and look up to see if anything is running into the ceiling area from that area.

8 used a square pvc fence post, cut the ends at a 45 degree angle & screwed it with self tapping screws at the seems on the basement roof.

I toured the factory several times and I didn't see them fishing the wires through that tubing.

I think Dave is correct. Just can't see them taking the time to fish wires thru the aluminum supports. Just look at the "Rats Nest" of wires and plumbing, should give you a clue.

Only don't use screws, use NAILS like Redwood did

I was pretty shocked to see they used a nailgun (brads) to attach the sheeting to the square aluminum tubes on the walls.

My factory tour earlier this year showed nothing inside the tubes, but between them is a different story. Good Luck!!

My thanks again to all of you for your ideas and feedback, didn't think there was any thing in them, but wanted to be sure, this site is always full of information and great ideas. Anyone have any storage ideas for water hoses, please share. As far as sewage hoses, thinking of putting those below frame, but I also like the Waste Master system, though expensive, has the capabilities of staying attached to RV while traveling with 20 Ft of hose stored in the storage box they make for it, so all you do is open door, pull out and drop in sewer line open and open valve , they also have an extension hose you can add if needed, does anyone use this system or have any feed back they wish to offer on it.
