I went to my dealership's service department and got a couple of items out of the trailer and then listened to what all they think they have fixed and what they think they lack. Tried to open a slide to get my items and the battery was stone cold dead. They said it had been plugged in to shore power until about Tuesday. Shop foreman had no clue why the battery was dead... said he'd install a new one of this one wouldn't take a charge.

Swift 2. I have ordered an AC/DC 4 wire meter that was on the FR site. It looks like just what I wanted except it came with NO instructions (schematic ) Can anybody out there help me with the wiring? Looks like it has a CYB yb5135d-v1.3 on the board. It's about 1 1/2"high by 2 1/2"long.

Dropped ours off at a dealer today. Small laundry list of repairs and a minor damage repair from our "neighbor" at the storage lot. Non selling dealer, they seem very helpful. I'll be sure to let you know how they do. Gotta get ready to head to FL next month.

I dug a path to the door thru the snow and counted light bulbs for my LED upgrade.

I made a new airflow baffle for the Dometic fridge in our TT.
This will increase airflow through the condenser and make it easier for the fridge to maintain cold inside temps on hot days.

Spent all day cleaning out the pink stuff from my plumbing. When I pressure tested it from the pump I found the low point drain leaking, a fitting was bad. I went to Camping World, they didn't have it so I went to Lowes. I cut off put 2 metal valves on the end of the Pex and used pex rings and clamp to secure. Now to drain low points I flip the valve.

I cleaned tested and drained the water heater.

After I got the system pressurized and tested I drained and blew it out to prepare for a trip next weekend.

Now for the stupid move of the day. I grabbed the slide remote and closed the slide from the outside of the coach not realizing a door inside was open. I heard cracking and banging and went inside to investigate. I found the door was jamming against my dinette seat and it pulled away from the slide and other damage to trim. I got the screwdrivers, nails and hammer, disassembled the seat, repaired it screwed it back in and nailed what I needed to. It is back together and slide is in. I feel like throwing that remote away!
