When you did the bypass were all the fittings that you used just threaded matching the back-flow valve that you removed or did you do something more permanent?

I just removed the vacuum breaker and connected the tank hose directly to the outside hose inlet and factory back flow preventer valve.

Re-sealed the leaking shower drain I found while loosing my marbles behind the water inlet board. Does the factory really use grey putty to seal this or did someone that has no clue put it on after the fact? I used real silicone sealant.

They use plumber's putty. Gotta use the good silicone when tidying up what the factory does too. Dow 732 is hard to beat! Ran it around the drain and recaulked the garden shower doors with it to seal them properly.

TOWTA and I finally unloaded the 5er from our FL trip. 5 double arm loads of her clothes on hangers. No wonder I only get the small closet and one drawer while she gets 3 drawers, 3 hanging closets and under the bed. Also took at least 2 grocery carts full of groceries out of the pantry. NOW, if I could just get her to unload about 60% of the dishes/pots/pans, etc. we might get better gas mileage.

She even commented that the camper will never be loaded like that again. (Yea, right, I do recall hearing that last yr and the yr before)

I guess now I will have to unload some of the duplicate/triplicate junk in the front compartment.

I hope you got all that stuff done before the ice storm came at ya! (I'm guessing the leading edge should be about to you by now)
