The new larger motorized campers are more complex and require some fixing and preventing. I'm very curious on how things work so I have been all thru my unit. I am always looking for ways to modify things and make them better. This forum is a great resource on issues others have had. Items such as improperly installed anti-sail stops on the slide toppers, missing fuse in the charge control circuit, and a plumbing mistake to name a few I discovered were also on my unit.
I hear ya
I've already modified the Awning
Redid the shower door with new sweep seals and re caulked the entire door
Fixed a leaky water pump
Installed a brake controller
Installed vent covers
For the benefit of others
It probably would be a good idea to put a shutoff valve on the HOT low drain
The Cap did NOT fall off.
Something hit it and cracked the top off
The threaded part was still attached but the drain was wide open
A spare cap is a must but considering everything that happened I'm thinking a shutoff valve
I never saw a Hearse towing a Trailer
