At least you noticed your crack BEFORE putting water in tank, I added water and bleach to sanitize the tanks, turned on water pump, and ran faucets in kitchen and bathroom. An hour later, my son noticed water dripping our of the front door. We were prepping for a trip, ended up spending two days in Williams, AZ without water, except jugs to flush the toilet.
We live in southern AZ, didn't think there was any water in lines, so never bothered to winterize. Picked up the replacement valve at CW, waiting on DH to install it.


Happiness is just a ride away!

Didn’t do anything to the trailer, but we did move a 6-sided 14-foot flat deck around the back of the trailer to get it in place next to our other deck. Used about 10 aluminum poles and sort of rolled/slid it around. My legs are still sore from pushing it.

It (mostly) covers up a big bare spot on our site pretty nicely though.

Moved the fake wall of the rear storage area back towards the rear trailer light wiring, gained at least two feet of unused storage space. Ordered replacement baggage door cam locks to match the entry door key, no more ch751 locks or keys!

Getting ready for our trip that will be coming up in about 3 weeks. Gave my 2013 Vibe 6501 a bath. put a bleach/water combo in the fresh water tank and pressurizer the water system to check for leaks that may have happened over the winter. (all was good). Drained the fresh water tank and refilled with fresh water. Purged all of the lines and left them pressurized. Checked the truck & TT tire pressures. Truck was good but the TT tires were low.
Then I took the rig for a 30 mile test run to see how the new Tow Veh. handles. I think it's going to be just fine. My DW will need to clean the inside and stock up on all the needed supplies.
TT = 2013 Vibe 6501
TV = 2015 Nissan Frontier.

Replaced all the incandescent light bulbs in the clearance lights with leds. Discovered about half of them had had water up to or above the bulbs. Drilled small holes in the bottom of the lenses to let the water out. Turned the lights on with a jumper wire to see if they would get hot enough to melt the lens as the leds protrude farther than the old incandescent ones. Also washed TOWTA's old junker for the first time since before we left for FL,also washed the old broken down truck as well as mowed the 1.48 acres of weeds and 18 blades of grass. That's it for the day or probably the week.

Decided to get out to a campground to get away from all the yard work! Seventy degrees, gentle breeze, and very few clouds. Doesn't get any better. Oh wait, beer and brats makes it even better!
