Valance came down

We had a 300 mile run on Thursday. The GPS took me on some nasty roads I had never been on before. They were under construction and broken up pretty bad. When we got to our destination the Valance over the bed had come down. It was installed with 1 1/2" screws through the Valence and into the 1/8" luan ceiling panel.
It was a pretty poor installation just screwed into the 1/8" wood and nothing else, no studs or plugs or molly's. Another chore for this weekend.

I hear 'ya. One of my other projects this past weekend was the installation of shelving in the W/D closet. The side walls are paper thin so I attached wooden stringers (still need to be wood stained) on all three walls. Attached the stringers with molly bolts.

Yes, a BIGGG package of mollys might be a good item to have in the ol' toolbox. We are having the same issues.

LMAO last year in my travel trailer my wife's closet bar ripped out of the wall. I looked in there and can't even imagine how she got that much clothes in there in the first place. We are not full timers but more of your weekend travelers. I asked her why do you need so much hanging clothes we're camping? She didn't talk to me for a week and I still had to fix the closet bar.
Now in the RW just before we pull out to move I take all of her clothes off the closet bar and put them ever so nicely on the floor. Problem solved.

You're a brave man. I don't touch my wife's stuff.

That's what the 2" hitch is for on the back

My wife can fill that no problem. I'm worried I'd be overweight though.
