I realized the dealer lied when he said they filled the propane tanks after the furnace stopped heating around midnight after running for 1 day. Unless My furnace burns 60 lbs a day....
Made the midnight walmart run to the only 24 hour one nearby.
Figured out the water heater a bit, filled the fresh water tank to disconnect from the site water as it's going under 32 tonight. Dumped the waste tanks, added a water filter. And found where the circuit breakers are after starting my electric kettle for french press coffee while the newly acquired oil heater was still on high.

I tried the new deal of using an existing as a pull string but they were taped very tightly together unfortunately. I was to worried I would break it so stopped that idea. Thank you for the suggestion.

Today I installed a roof vent cover, a Blue Streak system, and a cutoff valve between the water pump outlet and where line feeds in to the cold water line. The last mod I had to do because I have been unable to get the back flow valve in the pump to work. The city water supply was back filling my fresh water tank. We never use the FWT. If I need to or when I winterize I will simply reach into the pump cabinet and open the valve.

I give up on trying to rotate iPhone pics.

Your tank looks a touch high,
It'll be fine as long as the solution doesn't seep into the bowl.

As far as taking pics the iPhone must be held sideways with the bottom of your phone in your right hand when taking pics

Thanks. The top of the tank is 1" below the top of the stool. Hopefully it will work. Thanks for the iPhone tip.

I was lazy. The only thing I have done the last few days was place the 100' of coax on a cord reel.

I have been reading the forum and have added a few projects before our next outing.

1. Install the "OC Edition" awning poles.
2. Install two Blue Streaks
3. Install a couple of EZ hose carriers (probably make my own) for the 40' of stinky slinky. I thought 40' was overkill, but on our first outing I used most of it to get both drains connected to the dump at the rear of the site.

I have them stored in a tote in the generator compartment, but being able to slide them in their own "pipe" would free up allot of space.
