After the mutha lovin factory water filter broke while camping this weekend I went to Home Depot and got a GE smart filter. An hour later and the factory pos is in the trash. I improved my flow rate considerably, a drinking glass that took 10.5 seconds to fill now fills in 7 seconds.

I also bought a pressure gauge, seems I had 40PSI instead of the 55 the pump specs. Fixed that too.

Removed the refrigerator drain hose ( brittle plastic tube which should have never been used by the factory) and will replace with a clear rubber tube.

It was a PIA to remove and may need my wife's small hands to replace.....lol.

Filled the LP tanks. Configured the Revolution hitch. Hooked up for the first time, and went for a ride. Started loading all of the gear in, and had to listen to "How did Old Coot make his basement so neat? Did Old Coot post some empty basement pictures? I want it to be as neat as Old Coots!" Bah. (I'm going to attach some eyelets to the frames and strap the chairs to the walls).

I went over to the lot where we store our TT and tested the output of the antenna booster. At the booster it's putting out 12v. Since I'm only getting 1v at the antenna end, the cable is bad. It doesn't look like a big job to pull it through the roof from the antenna to the booster outlet/switch about 6-7feet. Looks like it may be a pretty straight shot. My plan is to attach the new cable to the old and attach a length of string and pull it all through with the old cable. The string is just incase the cables get separated and I can use it to pull old cable back out for a retry or pull the new through. Using a fish tape looks to be more trouble.

With new cable and the new Jack Antenna, we should be back in huge TV watching biz.

Report back on how this works out for you. We have just enough to make it to the outside of the fridge vent left.

On our old 08 Flagstaff, I went to Lowes and got a pc of clear hose that fit over the stock one and just slid it up as far as it would go and it was still good when we got rid of it 4 yrs later.

We drove the camper from NC to GA. Sorry no improvements but you all have given me so many ideas my DH doesn't want me reading the forum any more. He is many things, but Mr. fixit is not one of his aliases. He hires it done. He ever meets one of you guys it will be painful. KUDOs to all you guys that can re-model and retro fit!
