Thanks for the pic. Is it permanently attached, does it move? How's it work?

I took off the small stop that was there and added a taller one. It is attached to the bed so it goes up with the bed.

Thanks. Picking mine up this weekend, so hopefully it will make more sense when I see mine.

Came home after a 3-day trip to St. Vrain state park and decided to wash the roof with spic-n-span than the trailer with Mothers wash and wax. Tons of bugs on the front so had to scrub them off. She's parked and I put covers over awnings but not tires...got the okay from the Mrs. to replace the Trail Express with Maxxis so why protect China bombs??Click image for larger version

Modified my external water filter stand

Many of us, tired of internal water filter leaks, nearly impossible access panels, and miniature external in-line water filters, opted to buy--at Goshen's 2014 FROG rally--an external pair of house-sized filters (similar to Watts or Flow-Pur) mounted on a steel plate (1) and hung from a 3/4" pvc pipe stand; all made to sit outside of our rig (2).
Loved the dual sediment/taste filter system: But really found their large fixed pvc stand (3) to be a pain to pack in and around.
A trip to the plumbing section lead me to a pair of 1-inch x 3/4-inch SCH40 pvc snap to threaded Tees and a pair of 3/4-inch SCH40 threaded to slip adapters (stock # 188230 & 23856 at Lowes for $4.30 + tax). Borrow some pvc weld from a friend (otherwise that's another $7.00 for four wipes of weld cement!)
Cut the old stand 3/4-in. vertical's directly above the base T-mounts (4). Then cut off the top of the base Tee and file the remainder round, removing all flanges (5) so the new 1-inch snap-on Tee can fit over it. 1-inch clears the old T--but still clamps firmly.
Trial fit your parts; threaded 3/4 fitting onto the old vertical legs, and Tees threaded into place. Once together, check for clearances, level, and right angle straightness. I found it helpful to mark all joints and fittings with a pencil-(6)-before disassembling for final cementing--since time is of the essence as you weld and reassemble.
I chose to even weld the threaded portions together, taking care to align the right angles, so that they wouldn't move when packed or assembled (7).
Spray the inside of the new snap Tees and the base where they will clip with some dry lubricant, making it easier to assemble (8).
Clipped together, your new stand should have plenty of clearance for remounting your filter set on the old top screws (9).
Best of all, now for storage, merely snap apart the top from bottom and they will stack/nest easily into a nearly flat, and easily packed, stand (10).

Nothing to the camper, but finally got my dual pulleys and got them mounted on my table saw so I can put matched belts on the 1-1/2 hp motor I've had on it since 2000. Also ordered a pair of matched cog belts for it. Now, I'll be able to take advantage of the motor without slipping a belt.

I used the snap on tees (2) ,2 threaded caps... mounted those , with 1/4" bolts thru the rear ladder upright and made a snap-in satellite mount for the King Flex....stole OC's idea, made one out of oak for the pin box...either/or.
