well im home. leveled it out and everything.

while we were displaced the "dw" turned on the ice maker in the fridge.. well its a good thing that we caught it and we were just using the fresh water tank and not the city pressure because it turns out that somehow the line to the ice maker on the Estate fridge had came out of the fitting at the top to go to the ice maker. its a simple 1/4" or 1/8" poly tube that goes up to the top from the solenoid in the bottom and is secured with a cheap hose clamp at the top!

well i dunno how long this had come off but the dw noticed that there was water coming out from under the fridge.. so today i had to unscrew the brackets from the wall and pull it out. sure enough found the tube off, water on the floor, dog food, papers and MILDEW/MOLD!! thank goodness its only on the linoleum and not on the wall or near it! hot water and bleach to the rescue! I have now secured the hose in the fitting at the top back of the fridge with some pvc glue (just to help hold it).

so ya, another horror story in the way these things are made and stuck together...

SO! that was an exciting first year! to celebrate ive borrowed the parents little TT and we are going camping lol.

as some might have seen i had a water problem in the trailer. i think it was the water line from the pump into the main system. I did get ahold of the dealership and told them the problem and that we bought it nearly one year ago and they have my pictures and are forwarding them off to the claims dept and hopefully will get it fixed for me. they are going to look into the wall that got water damage and make sure that it hasnt done any real damage.
