After picking it up on Thursday over the weekend I installed the Progressive 50amp hardwired surge protector. Also got the BlueStreak installed. Got other stuff moved that we had from the TT. Still got some things to do but first weekend is about a month away. Got turkeys to hunt now.

Love the bug screen on the fridge. I might copy that.

washed,waxed checked all system on electric and lp. Checked operation of progressive portable 30A surge protector. Its astounding how much current draw there is from microwaves, water heaters and AC units. Still have to use the 303 on the seals and gaskets. I'm almost too tired to camp! Not!

Congrats on the new Columbus. Now you get to re-learn where everything goes!

It makes it easier to drain the system, you don't have to worry about a problem with the cap getting lost or breaking.

I did the same thing but used PEX brass valves from HD or Lowes, about $10 a piece.

Fireman. If you don't do your own winterizing you may not have ever had the opportunity to touch the low point drains.

They are simply a ball valve with hose bib ends.
Unscrew the cap and turn the lever. No need for tools to gain access.

I like the ones with hose bib ends. I've modified my last 4 campers with these so I can attach a hose to them and use it for various reasons, especially when boondocking.

Fill a bucket, wash the camper, add water to another camper, fill the truck radiator if something should happen, put out a campfire, etc.
