I've only ever used the lego-type blocks at unlevel sites, not to stabilize.

Several threads here and other forums. Honda always gets the nod, but several others work well, think Champion, Yamaha, General, and even Harbor Freight. Above 3400 you can usually run both ACs,...

I think the panels are steel vice aluminum. Regardless, I suspect you'll never find replacements, except maybe in an RV junkyard, and very few of them exist. I've watched enough YouTube videos to...

Correct, no RV is perfect. The OP's issue was, however, one over which KS had control. The factory failed to properly secure the SOB motor to the wall.

Different jurisdictions have different rules, even some places way out in the sticks and on large land tracts. Anyone who ignores the rules does so at their own risk.

Daryles makes an excellent suggestion with the jacknuts. I've not seen those before, and better than welding anything.

I agree about bonding a larger plate to the wall. You'll have to find an adhesive that will bond to metal and the vinyl material. I'd use 1/8" aluminum. If you use bolts with nuts, you'll have to...
