Did? Not yet..got in my whole house(TT) water filter. I will mount it under...waiting on my under sink filter for drinking water faucet to install.

Heck. I guess it will almost be "sterile" water. Lol

Ohh. I got in a couple of new chairs from WM.com. Reg$50 got for $20 no freight. They are comfortable, but lean back further than I like.

Anyone have a breakaway that they are installing these Butch Latches? Just wondering if you really need one?

That's a good question. I guess it is like anything else just an extra layer of protection. Even through it was designed for hooking up only, but if it broke loose in travel, I don't think you would have to much control of the trailer, but it wouldn't just drop off and ruin your gate and rails of the truck. I know I high hitched before I learned and dropped a jayco. After that I painted my bar bright yellow now I can see if it is closed and holding correctly. Just a learning cure..... Now I also added tug pull to my hitching procedure.

Installed 'Quickie Flush' on our black water tank and our sensors are back to reading 'E' again, yay!

We're still going to install the Horbst sensors, but that will happen with our next trip.

Only bad link is your wire size from 30 amp to 50 amp. Did you change the wire inside from the plug to the panel? A 30 amp cord and interior 30 amp wire to the panel will heat up using it for 50 amps instead of 30 amps. That's why they put a 30 amp breaker in your panel. I assume you checked the gauge to handle 50 amp compared to 30 amp?

1 - Hope you changed the wire size to #6/2 with ground.
2 - 50 amp service is 230 volts, hope you're only using the ground, neutral and 1 hot leg.
3 - Make sure the panel is rated for the higher amperage.
