Here is a link to an old posting I made concerning our sun screen.  They work great, easy to install, provide privacy during the day, keep the heat and sun out and look professional.,159.msg563.html#msg563

This would be a partial solution (cab area) you may want to do this with the rest of the windows, it up to you.

IF you have any questions send me an e-mail.

Appreciate all your concerns about a possible fire hazard--the paper towel holder is actually set against the back wall and not over the stove top.  I placed a command hook on the small space behind the microwave (Judi-I did this after you left) that actually keeps the towel holder snug to the back wall.  It actually lines up with the valance over the sink.  That is how far back it is set.  I'll post pictures when I get a chance.  

I also can easily remove the paper towel when cooking if I so desire, but the height and distance from the stove top is virtually the same as if I had mounted it over the sink top or left it free standing on the counter.

I used this same design on the 2350 and never had a problem.  The design of the microwave in the newer units is much higher than in the older units.  I think each person must assess what is right for their own unit depending upon model year and design.

Here is the link to the magnetic mount paper towel holder that I use:

It mounts to the underside of the microwave.  It works great and can be positioned anywhere underneath the microwave.

As far as the TV - consider mounting the TV yourself.  We are currently camping in our 2551 and using our self mounted TV for the first time.  It is on a swivel mount as pictured in the following post:,713.0.html

It is absolutely wonderful.  It is a Visio TV and since the speakers are in the front of the TV they are plenty loud even with the Air, Heat strip, or Furnance running.  The TV swivels out and around and you can view it from any angle.  We have the couch and not the dinette.  There is no neck strain at all.  We used to have a 2350 with a flat mounted TV and made sure that we mounted this one on a swivel because we were not happy with the flat mount.

As far as the table - We use the table provided by Phoenix with the spider legs.  It too is a great design.  It is very easy to set up and store.

Did you ever think of getting a swivel mount and mounting it sideways, i.e. instead of it swiveling it would lower and raise.  Look at something like this

Go to one of the discount stores and take one of their mounts and play with positioning it and see if it will work.  When mounts first came out they were very expensive so we found an under the cabinet mount on clearance and mounted it sideways and it is still being used as a swivel mount today.  Works great as a swivel even though it was meant as an under the cabinet mount.

I too hung them in the shower.  I used one (5 pounder) for a shower caddy.  The caddy also has suction cups so I get double duty.  I hung two other smaller hooks to hang wet coats or clothes on if we get caught in the rain.  I think they are great.

Put 1200+ miles on the new motorhome and had a chance to test the Visio TV on the swivel mount.  There was no flexing or any movement of the TV no matter what the road conditions were.  The small shelf that the TV sits on worked perfectly in keeping the TV stable for travel and tight against the wall so there was no flexing.  We had forgotten about the TV for about 500 miles when the DW said WOW the TV doesn't make a sound.  We are very pleased with our mount.

Another benefit is that the TV can be swiveled so that it can be seen from either bed in the 2551.  Bonus--we don't have to install a small TV in the bedroom area.

Finally got to use the new motorhome.  It's WONDERFUL.  I hung up pictures and a weather station using the 3M Picture and Frame Hangers

They worked great the whole trip down and I can now say they are very road worthy.  Bumpy roads and all and nothing moved.  Cheer

    I would be cautious (IMO) about using WD40.  WD40 does not contain any silicone and is a short term lubricant.  According to the Fiamma website their suggested maintenance is as follows:

"We recommend lubricating the spring loaded lateral arms at the elbows and at both ends every six months with a spray lubricant. Use silicone or a similar product to keep the awning running smooth and free. Also, we recommend lubricating the swivel joints at the top of the legs."

    Did you look on the Fiamma website?  They have some great videos that show some troubleshooting hints.  Here is the link  Maybe if you check them out, get an idea of what they are talking about and then call them you can get yours adjusted.
