Wet bay, these are just garden hose valves and I made a manifold so I didn't have to unhook hose to use. Also I can purge the air for the water heater

On the trailer hitch I saw deflection when my receiver was on with the dolly, so I added a crossmember.

Nice! Like the water bay manifold! What do you mean "deflection". We just picked up a dolly and will tow for the first time Friday. What should I look for? Thanks!

I like the water bay too, nice job.

Nathan, I'd like to hear about your towing decision and experience after your trip. I'm debating about buying something to tow flat or get a dolly.

I bought an extra long receiver and when my buddy was standing on the tongue of the trailer I had hooked up and it looked like the hitch was moving. So I got on the ground and had him bounce and the and it was flexing. So for piece of mind I just added another crossmember. It's solid with no flex.

Hi Phil
Hope you are progressing well with your new knee.

When we were down to see you we discussed putting a hose bib so we can flush the tank using tank/pump water. See the picture of how I did mine.

Marty I had forgotten all about that. That looks great. Now I'm going to have to get mine done.
Knee is coming along. Still painful but that's expected. Man that PT sucks.

i'll have to go find the pics but here's a list that i remembered doing:

- ez oil drain valve on motor oil pan
- ez oil drain valve on generator oil pan
- 2 solar panels for when in storage to charge both set of battery banks
- rewired house battery bank
- removed single couch and replaced with built in dog crate

projects that i created but need to finish:
- led light strips under the awning (can't get it to stick to the silicone led strip)
- led lit grab handle by the entry door
- redo water hookup with better plumbing and single point (my own manifold to inlet, inlet tank, and flush with checkvalve)
- add water hookup to passenger side of the couch for my outdoor kitchen sink
- upgrade headlights to HID
- build cabinet organizers for the glasses, cups, dishes, pots, pans, etc...

so many projects, so little time...
