LOL, Once a year I cull my crap. I pull everything out onto the floor and evaluate it's usefulness. Takes me about two years to get rid of stuff. I "try" to apply the principal that "if you can't see it, you probably don't need it".

Can't begin to tell you about how much crap I have purchased only to find that I already had it.

Actually it is a light beige. I'm not a fan of white either. My dream Dynamax Super C is all black.

WOW, someone else that has that happen. Sometimes I have to buy something because I can't find the one I have. Then right after I open it, I find the one I had.

Further north, Fairview Heights area, just a gun shot away from East. St. Louis.

I spent time running the Carbondale area. Younger years, when I did not expect/care about living this long. I could have been retired by now instead of planning on making the DW become a Walmart greeter in 10 years.

Starting over.
In order to winterize the expansion tank, it would have to be mounted correctly, vertical with the port on the bottom.

Great Polish Job

First of all your trailer looks GREAT, Did your son use the wax on wax off method (by hand) or did he use an orbital buffer? I have a Heritage Glen with the same front cap color and yours looks like I could put my hand through it... Cuddo's to your Son for a great job well done. hope to hear back from you?

Actually with the shutoff valve closed and the drain open the bladder will push all water out of the tank and drain the small amount in the line. I do not plan to put RV antifreeze in the expansion tank.

He put the wax on by hand but removed and then buffed out with an orbital buffer.

I believe I have the "Worlds Formost Collection" of #2 Robertson screw drivers.
