Wardrobe back wall ???

My 2975 with large bathrom option has a wardrobe in the bathroom.

The back wall has a 1//2 in by 1/2 in piece of wood with several little screws, running vertically in the left corner of the warbrobe.


Could the screws be there to possibly remove the back panel ? I'm wondering because the tank vent pipes (Black & Grey) run up behind this wall I'm talking about.

Any info appreciated.

Thanks

Hi Sunline1

I did not know the year of your camper. I found one in the 2002 brochure do not know if it is yours or not.

http://www.sunlineclub.com/forums/downloads.php?do=file&id=223

That is a nice roomy layout for a non slide unit.

If the layout matches the 2002 my guess is you are correct. The vent pipes go up thru that area. If you go up and look on the roof you should be able to see the vent caps to help confirm what is inside.

Hope this helps

John

PS. Next time you update your forum signature, adding the camper model number and year helps us know better what you have.

yes it is a 2002. I do know the vent pipes go up there as well. By looking at the roof as you indicated also there are 2 drawers under the pantry (across from the fride), by removing those I can see the vent pipes.


My question is, this vertcal 1/2 in by 1/2 in (approx), piece of wood (with screws),in the left corner of the inside (finished) side of the wardrobe, some sort of access to the area I'm speaking about.


any thoughts

1/2 x 1/2 in the corner, h'mm this might be as you said a cover strip to hold a panel in place for access but I would think there needs to be more then 1 side with the strip. ! one sided hold donw panel?? Maybe if the other side was placed in a groove. A picture here goes a long way to visualize what you are seeing.

OR they needed a support for the paneling/wall and they just put it on the inside?

There is one way to cure the curosity. Break out the screw driver.... Never know there may be a suprise inside.

Now you have our curosity. What is back there?

The square stock you are describing sounds like it probably holds the side panel of the wardrobe in place. That's fairly common Sunline construction.

I won't claim to be an expert by any means, but in every trailer I've been in, vent pipe access has been low on the wall down at the floor level, generally a little 8x10 or so access panel. In a few, I've seen access inside of cabinetry, where the pipe is visible going through the floor.

John & Frank

I guess my vent pipe access are the 2 drawers under the pantry which can be removed, I can see where the vent pipes go thru the floor.

when I get a chance and find the right mirror, I"ll pull the 2 drawers out and get down on the floor with a light, and see what if anything I can see up there.

I really wanted to place a 2X6 in there for a backing plate for my LCD TV mount. Don't know if there will be enough clearance for the 2X6 between the vent pipes and the wall. Also will there be something solid enough to attach the 2X6 to ??

Maybe i can see what's going on where the 1/2 in by 1/2 in strip of wood with the screws in it is. This is a strip of wood the height of the wardrobe, that runs the whole length right in the back corner where the side meets the back of the wardrobe.

If I were smart I would just keep the Tv on the little table I have it on now and remove for traveling. I'd really like to mount it so I could travel with it thou.

I'll keep ya posted, as to what I do or don't do !!!

P.S. JohnB How do you like my signature now ?
Thanks for the advice.

H'mm OK, I forgot to ask, is this approx 1/2" x 1/2 strip square and have screws in each side (90 degrees apart) and actually measure 3/4 x 3/4"? And those little screws you where talking about, little being like a number 8 (~1/8) x about 1 long wood screw with a square bit head?

Does it look this? See the left rear vertical and left lower corner strip.


If so then is what Frank and I are talking about. It is just a joining strip to attach the side of the wardrobe to the wall. And if so then there is stud in the wall where it screws into.

Earlier my mind went to a small literally a 1/2 x 1/2 x 45 deg corner molding with fine (no 4 ) x phillips or straight screws in it. Why, good question???

Good luck

John

PS the Sig looking good now! I do think it is a T-2975 to be the full model number. Sunline Fan Im sure can tell us when the T- series came to be over the straight numbers and there is some significance to the T.

In short, yes, you are correct. It is a T-2975.

Every travel trailer 1983 through 2007 was technically the "T- Series". I usually drop the T- for simplicity sake, but they are all formally this.

I've seen plenty of variations in my time, like T286SR, T286-SR, etc, but T-286SR is the correct form in all cases.

The same distinctions also apply for the campers and fifth wheels, so like a C-1150 or an F-345SR or an F-2150.

yes that's what it is, there are 3 in the wardrobe the 1 corner doesn' have one.

I took out the drawrs last night and got a good look at it. The vent pipes are right behind where the back of the draw is when the drawers are closed. Their on either side of the drawer.

I think I found a good location for my mount, even have enough room a little tight but, think I can put a backing brace there, have to watch the clearance for the vent pipe.

Thanks all for your input/info. That's the great thing about this iste always some good input.

P.S. John take note of signature update !!!!

Great!!! There is generally a few ways to do most things, just sometimes we just need a little hint on what to look for.

Your sig now looks "offical"!

Thanks Sunline Fan for the model explanation. I knew you would know.
