The learning curve seems to get a lot steeper as I get older. Maybe when I was a lot younger, I just didn't have enough brains to even think about these things. I also started out in a tent,went to very small TT, then to a pop-up, to a very used but clean and good condition class c, and now back to a TT. Love this Flagstaff 831bhss. It just has a lot of things I'm not that familiar with.
You may be right about the anti-freeze loss out the city hook-up. I never thought about that and it's been a couple weeks now since, I wouldn't be able to see any clues on the outside now. You can remind me next year when we do all this again!
Thanks for the ideas and Happy New Year!!
