Ya, thanks. Somewhere I found a thinner walled PVC pipe. Was for drainage not high pressure supply side.

Meanwhile, a large flat-screen projection TV can weigh as much as 200 pounds.

I would not attempt this mod without engineering help from the manufacturer (and good luck with that )

That's the answer I was trying to get from the OP. I might have been remiss in not explaining the difference.....ie; a 60" LED will be lighter than a 60" LCD and forget the weight of a 60" plasma!

A few things over the last few days, tested and setup my Tekonsha P3 brake controller, dissatisfied with the performance I went ahead and replaced the molded in 7 way connector, still wasn't satisfied so I adjusted my brakes. I adjusted them last year, but I've only pulled it 1,500 miles or so. Regardless, they were loose. So now I can lock the trailer tires but I've got the voltage turned way up. Now I guess I'll start looking for potential voltage drops along the brake system. I know it's solid to the junction box on the hitch.

I'm seriously considering upgrading to electric over hydraulic disc brakes.

Last mention of it here was in 2014, but like you all I've seen are rave reviews. It looks like $1,500-1,800 or so. Seems like a wise investment, so next spring might see me getting this.

Added a set of Safety Struts from Mount N Lok. They were at the RV show and had them cheap. My bumper is already reinforced but I wanted a bit more support none the less. Very easy to install (6 total bolts). Took about 15 minutes.

Finally opened the bottom panel...


and found this......


Now I finally know which panel the WH is behind.

Also, since I have a fear of a sagging awning, I installed a cradle....

Due to ongoing job requirements I Filled the water system with antifreeze.

Tomorrow I will pull the battery out and open the tub of Damp-Rid.
