Yes it can. Have cancelled two trips already this spring due to weather. 😞

I installed a push bar on the screen door and a giant level on the pin box while my wife cried every time the drill bit touched her baby

My FDW would only cry if I touched the inside of her camper, I control outside she has total control of inside, I have no idea where anything is but that is ok as long as she knows...lol

EDIT: I looked back at previous post and saw he bought magnetic latches. That is what was installed. Magnetic latches. .

What did I do?

What did I do to my camper today? Darn near ruined the water heater Did the dewinterizing thing over the weekend, cleaning, restocking, etc. Or as I like to say....dubbing around. But....when I turned on the water heater to make sure it worked, the propane fired up....all seemed good. Until I turned on the faucet after a few moments. It was at that exact moment that I realized I didn't close the bypass and fill the tank. And I know better!

Got it filled, thankfully it seems not to have run long enough to damage it and both electric and propane are working fine.

Thanks, Evereddie! I was hoping this was a lead-in to the Cheap Heat system. (Wishful thinking on my part!)

I'm 99% sold on it. Though, with installation- there's nothing "cheap" about it.

Did a haphazard wash job on the 5er. Didn't wash the roof, so will no doubt have more black streaks. I did get up on the roof and cleaned the gutters of pine needles. Found out that Awesome will not remove black streaks but Liquid Performance Black Streak Remover sure will. Just spray it on and wipe it or brush it and the streaks are gone.

WD40 is great for black streak removal too
