my 2014 awning is a vinyl fabric... if I had to repair a tear in the fabric, I would secure some tough canvas fabric or vinyl, cut a small piece a little larger than the tear, then use super glue to glue the repair fabric to the awning... make sure all the edges are glued securely.
electric fixture in your picture...
the small light/fan combos available from Amazon (if you do not have one) are nice for a reading light at night, or to use while you go to bed... also good for creating white noise with the fan, or just stirring up the air a bit to help with canvas condensation on a cool night.
I do a lot of "dry" camping at full service (water and electric) state parks... and only use the potty for liquid waste. I am able to use it for a couple of weeks, dump when leaving the park, then flush 2 or 3 gallons of water with bleach added from a previously filled 5 gal bucket into the potty and let that swish around while driving to my next stop. If I get home with that bleach water I just dump it on my gravel driveway. NO toilet tissue IN the toilet (black) tank, keeps that mess at bay.
I always use campgrounds that have showers so feel no need to use the small shower. After many years of tent camping I wash dishes in a tub and do not use the rather small sink in the trailer. If I need water, I either bring it with me or use the water from the faucet at the campsite, rather than haul water around with me in the HTT. I have blown out my fresh water tank with compressed air (there are air plugs on Amazon for this use), after testing the tanks when I bought the HTT last year, and have never since then put any water in my system, so I don't worry about freezing temps.
I just recently started using the cooktop stove, previously only using my outdoor Coleman stove. I warmed up the oven once for biscuits... and lit it without first lighting the pilot lite, just to try it out. I stay in FL in the winter and doubt that I will ever use the oven two days in a row so this works for me, besides propane is NOT free.
I have yet to use the furnace preferring the cheaper alternative of electric 1500 watt cubes, which have proved very adequate in my Shamrock 183, especially with a small fan on the floor blowing straight up to stir up the warm air inside. The heated mattresses in the 2014 Shamrock reduce the need for a lot of hot air inside.
Call me goofy if you want, but I can grow into any part of my HTT that I want while I learn the systems one at a time, without having to worry too much if I did everything right.
