    Only had the MH for a couple of months and have just been away in it for a week. Whereas the small shelf shelf next to the bed is handy for the morning cuppa it got caught when I lifted the bed up to get to the storage underneath. It ripped the shelf off of the wall to the shower.
    The screws holding it on only stick out about 3mm so, to refix it, could I use slightly longer screws. Not sure how thick the partition is to the shower. I have emailed Bailey but not heard back yet.

    A warning for other 730 owners perhaps! Be careful when you lift the bed.

    Probe the screw holes with a darning needle. They will either be screwed into reinforcing strip (so you could use 1/2" protrusion screws) or into the 3 - 5mm plywood skin in which case that's all there is to screw into.

    Just to update, Bailey tell me that the partition is 18mm so I've used slightly longer screws and seems to be ok.
