Well at least we know ETI is consistent …. I'm sure there is an explanation but I'm not losing any sleep over it. I'm happy everything works….

Installed my teak towel holders/grab bars. Please note, my wall was reinforced during construction so unless you did the same, please do not try to replicate. Also I removed all the shower screws and resealed the screws. Did the same on the exterior door screws. All are water tight now.

The trailer is home and I do not like to watch tv, it is therapy for me to work on it, until happy hour……seriously though I'm a at home caregiver for my 94 year old mom who takes a lot of naps during the day.

No, camping is relatively new, in the past 10 years. I used to ride my Harley for fun and entertainment but gave that up when Mom moved in and then I concentrated on camping as a vocation and a break from caregiving.

I've been thinking about a fan like that to suspend from the cabinet at the foot of our bed. A couple of questions: is it of good quality (ie, is it quiet) and, does oscillate by any chance?

Well Jim I think you're making the best investment with the time you have say Hi to your Mom for me.

Well made, metal, heavy, needs to be mounted on a board or wall versus clamp on style.
Does not oscillate and is quiet on low speed, loud on high speed. Here is one that does Amazon.com - SeaChoice 6 inch Oscillating 12V Fan - Electric Household Fans
