Good day, this evening when we were preparing the trailer for our camping weekend my wife noticed that the finishing panel on the underside of the cabinet which is on the right side of the trailer (refrigerator side) had been torn from the cabinet. After checking, I noticed that there were no screws and no reinforcement inside the cabinet to be able to adequately support the weight of the wooden valence and the blind attached to it. See attachments. There are a few tiny staples that all punctured the thin edge panel working from edge to edge which left marks and holes all over more than half of the surface. For the moment the whole is no longer anything, all the components come to rest on the upper edge of the window. I dare not touch anything screaming to make the situation worse and to do more damage than good deeds to stabilize the situation.

Now I wonder how I will be able to solidify this installation without damaging the wood and preserving the aesthetic aspect of this part of the trailer? Do you have a solution for me? If I have to remove this panel and dismantle the blind there will be holes in the panel below the cabinet. It'll take me a new new sign. To prevent the same thing from happening again it would be wise to replace the blind with a blind and a lighter valence. And if that is the case, you will have to change the one in the other window too! If you have other solutions please let me know as soon as possible so that we do not worsen the situation unnecessarily.

After having the situation inspected by my dealer, it became aware that the employee who made the assembly at the factory, had not done the installation properly. Five screws were missing from under the panel. The staples have left several three that I want to hide with moldings and putty of the same color as the one used by RiverSide RV.

Problem solved.
