Found water on the floor after wife and I took showers. Found out the drain where it attaches to the pan was leaking. Replaced the plastic fitting with a chrome one. Should fix it, after testing, looks good. Now need to test with someone in the shower with weight on the pan.

While in Quartzite for the show, I found a part that tells you exactly how much water you are using from your tank. Have to put a fitting in line near the pump. Will try to find a nice location to put the gauge. Will try to do this in the next week or two.

OK! Who makes it or sells and what is the correct name of part. All these great mods! I'll never catch up!

Had the same with mine. Not home of course. Went to Lowes got the parts and fixed, then braced so it would not happen again.

I ran across the picture of this as I was looking for my member number and thought I'd update it. So far, I have 3,840 miles towed with these zip ties. I still feel like I'm living dangerously, but I'm pretty happy with its performance so far.

I think you all know me by now- I'll fess up when they let go. As to a temporary fix or long term plan, I'm still not sure. I do definitely feel like I'm in the...

In other news, I started working to remove the stabilizers yesterday. Crappy tools and lack of ability meant that I laid on the ground for hours and didn't make a whole lot of progress. Going to be back at it today.

Topped off the gas and the propane and started loading up for a trip to Gulfport, MS. Looks like a couple of days of non-freezing temps, so will de-winterize tomorrow. Anxious to get out!

What I did today?

Cancelled reservations for the next 5 days that I made several months ago. The reason is that my mom(will be 90 tomorrow) is in the final days of her battle with liver cancer. I don't expect her to make it much longer. Just wouldn't be right for us to be camping in this situation. There will be trips in the future we can take.

Life isn't much fun right now.

The clamps that aren't working at the ones around the white flexible lines to the 90-degree connectors. That's not pex, is it?
I had a problem with that same white flex-to-pex type connection in my last trailer.
I think the I.D.'s of the two lines are just enough different that the PLASTIC pex elbow doesn't seal well on the white flex line. I tried worm clamps and regular pex clamps on the white flex side but always got a drip after some time passed.

I wound up swapping the plastic elbow for BRASS pex ell's and that solved the problem.

Of course to do this swap you need to buy the pex clamp tool (at least for the pex side of the connection) and I realize you mentioned you didn't want to do that. I just wanted you to know the brass ell solved the problem.
