Gave the water heater a vinegar soak. Maybe winterize tomorrow if weather is better. Water tank was fairly clean but then again its less than a year old. Probably start cleaning out the food tonight. I hate winter so depressing.

Brother, I am with you. Cleaned grey tank sensors. They read properly again. Winterized and cleaned and treated the roof with Aerospace 303. Ordered a replacement for one of the upper marker lights which is out. Hopefully just the bulb unit is needed. Propane between 1/2 and 3/4, gas tank full. I need to finish adding the Stabil, exercise the generator and put the air conditioner cover on. Then start counting the days until spring. 😰😰

I winterized the plumbing system today. I did notice that my fresh water tank definately has a non functioning vent in the gravity fill. No air passes at all so I'm thinking its kinked. On my list for spring projects.
Also, my low point drains .... I have a fresh water tank drain (blue pex) which is connected to the fresh water tank and opens with a valve. Then one other drain which is red with a plastic cap (red pex). I assume its hot water lines low point drain. Then where is cold water low point drain?

More 2801 mods

I believe these are the only two low point drains. I am assuming the red one takes off both hot and cold.

My vent is the same, hopefully it's an easy fix. I've got a few things on my list, some new door speakers to put in with the leftover Dynamat and I still have to install the Airlift Wireless One. I'm trying to come up with an all in one charging station/organizer for our iPads, phones, laptop and other USB charged gizmos.

Don't you have the USB charging points under the dining room TV? I have at least four, or maybe six, USB charge points above the small cargo net mounted to the wall. The net holds the charging cables and the small stuff, like phones, very well...

I was thinking of something along these lines up against the wall under the tv maybe with a couple extra pockets in the front for remotes and sunglasses and some extra outlets for other stuff that uses usb like cameras, flashlights, bluetooth speakers, and rechargeable battery packs. It has its own usb hub built in and would have just one cord going to 12v under the tv. With the laptop and everything plugged in it really clutters up the table, having the laptop vertical would help too. I'm hoping to also wire in the small inverter I use for the laptop as well instead of plugging it in the cupboard above the door.
I don't find the net very handy, too small for Ipads, half of it is below the table and it's kind of a pain to remove stuff from it. There's only two of us but it's amazing how many electronic gadgets we have that need charging.

I know how that goes... Two phones, a JetPack wifi hotspot, her Samsung tablet, my MacAir, my DSLR camera, her Fitbit and the flashlights. Waaaay too much electronic "stuff". That is why I never claim we are "campers"...

I like to use "dead space" whenever I can. Something like you posted mounted in the space between the dinette and the sink would be easily accessible and would be out of the way. I need to look at that....

I finished up installing the Infinity speakers and Dynamat in the doors. Pretty straightforward the door panels are easy to remove once you know where the screws are. (Found a video on YouTube). I still have to road test it but it sounded pretty good parked. I measured the compartment doors and ordered 3 small-slide gas lift kits. One for the sewer door and two for the rear door. Had enough of holding it with my head while loading/unloading our zero gravity chairs
