Got the screen door handles, and all the bug screens installed and gave it a needed bath.

Crazy week. Had to cut the weekend camping trip short on Sunday to fly to London on Monday for a last minute meeting. Arrived back at the house 2 hours ago. I ordered two Blue Streaks sitting in the airport Monday and they arrived today. Gonna get them installed tomorrow. Can't wait.

Next RV trip is over Memorial Day weekend at Ocean Lakes with some family friends. There will be 4 adults and 4 kids in the Sandpiper.

Black tank flush on the second black tank.

1/2-installed my power awning tie-down poles.

Started wiring for LED lights.

Plexiglass for the bottom 1/2 of our screen door for baby proofing.

Oxygenics showerhead.

Watts water regulator instead of the $9-cheapo ones.

Which Watts Regulator, I need a better one then the 40-50 psi Camco one, although I have never seen pressure at a campground much higher then 60-70 psi?

I'd recommend the watts 263A-LF (which I think I remember is what ependydad mentioned he has too)
I ordered from RVWaterFilterStore.com here
http://www.rvwaterfilterstore.com/Pr...Regulators.htm
Very helpful folks, with great service, and very knowledgeable.

There's a couple of different options for the different dials and fittings. Iirc I went for the 2.5" gauge and stainless fittings (about $100).
The flow is so much better than the cheapo regulators, even at the same pressure, since the flow is less restricted.

I currently attach mine outside, using a 90 degree elbow, but I'm thinking of installing it permanently inside near the filter, but with the gauge visible.
I've found that you do need to adjust it based on incoming pressure when setting up camp

I think I have the N55B which isn't available any longer on RVWaterFilterStore.com, but basically anything from here will be better than Camco or Valterra stuff that you buy:

What did you do to your camper today?

Heh, maybe I should have read posts before responding... Basically, what they said!

I would like to see a picture of your setup for fresh water and tank flush of you have one. Thanks

Thanks guys looking at getting the version with SS parts to avoid rust, $89.99 I think they seem to be well made, better than the cheap Valtera CW sells for $57.99, that one broke first weekend out, oil leaked out of gauge.
