I stayed with C. Considered Ds but had good luck with the Cs that came with the pup so figured I would stay there for now.

I felt that the water pump took too long to cut off after running water, several seconds at least. I could tell that there was air trapped somewhere I just couldn't find it.

So today, I found it. It suddenly hit me that it has clothes washer connections in the bedroom closet, I went and checked them, the lines were full of air. Purged them out, now the pump runs a couple of seconds and shuts off.

Learn something every day!

Gals- considering your climate compared to mine, using c's are an excellent choice. I just didn't want to take a chance during a 110 degree summer day having an issue with it. As soon as I wear down these sneakers on our new one, I'm going up to d's

I started to revive the trailer today as we leave for Southern California next week for Nascar on the 23rd at Auto Club Speedway. Camping at the track this year.

After a blowout at less than 5,000 miles and discovering problems with two of the other four tires we replaced all with D range and had them balanced. Apparently factory tires are never balanced and this results in many problems. We have always routinely checked our tire pressure. This year we are adding a tire pressure monitoring system.
