We are doing the EXACT same thing! Heading out Thursday, but just until Sunday.

Installed an accumulator on the water pump and also preparing for a Thursday morning departure. Five nights at Punderson State Park, Ohio with a wedding to attend on Saturday.

Same here, pulled the kids out of school for their 1/2 day Friday for a nice long weekend in Gettysburg. Probably more education in Gettysburg than they would have gotten in that 1/2 day. Planning to visit the Appalachian trail museum as well.

How handy are you? Give me a day or so for the pics. Everything I've read says you need to be particular what materials you put in contact with fresh potable water supplies, so I used stainless steel on the pressure side. The PEX fittings with the cap and washer are 1/2" NPS (straight pipe thread). The ball valves will have 1/2 NPT( national pipe taper thread). I don't think you can get a satisfactory seal between NPS and NPT. I ended up putting in two new, 1/2" tube x 1/2 nptm fittings , the ball valves and added a nylon 1/2" x 3/8 tube fitting to keep the crud out of the ball valve. I ended up having to go back and reseal one with PTFE paste, I couldn't get the teflon tape to seal. Probably overkill, but, it doesn't leak and sure is easier to drain things

Do they along with a great water pump work well to keep up water pressure? The pump that came with my Roo stinks

Do you mind showing a picture from the outside when it's dark with the inside lights on? That's my big concern- people being able to see in. Sometimes you just wanna be naked!

The AT Museum is right at Pine Grove Furnace. Take them over to the furnace and then take them for ice cream at the camp store right there. There's an AT tradition of trying to eat a 1/2 gallon of ice cream in the fastest time possible... of course, you pay for the ice cream, frozen mouth, and unpleasant feeling afterwards. As a price, you get a little wooden spoon with something stamped on it.

Otherwise, the trails and lakes there are beautiful.

(Ok, I might be a little jealous- I love that area. Grew up camping there!)

I was wondering if their slam latches would work. got the replacement cam locks for my 33IK. so maybe ill order up a set of those. Thanks for trying it out.

What did you use to shim?
